Statement of Faith

We Believe…

  • In the Bible as the divinely inspired and inerrant Word of God, the revelation of His mind and will to man, the infallible and all- sufficient guide for salvation, and all aspects of the Christian life and testimony (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21).
  • In one God, the Creator of all, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In the sovereignty of God, and in the free will of man to obey or to obey not the Gospel (2 Thess. 1:8).
  • In the full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that He is true God and true Man, begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin into perfect and impeccable humanity (John 1:1; Phil. 2:6; Matt. 1:23-25; 1 Jn. 3:5).
  • In the depravity of every aspect of the human nature through the fall in the Garden of Eden, humanity being tempted and deceived by Satan, a real and personal devil, the arch-enemy of God and man.
  • In the absolute inability of the sinner to be saved from eternal punishment by self- righteousness or good works (Gen. 3; Rom. 3:23; Eph. 2:8-9).
  • In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved (1 Thess. 4:17), and the everlasting, conscious punishment of the lost (Rev. 20:15).
  • In the finished work of Christ on the cross of Calvary, through which sacrifice Christ has effected complete and eternal redemption (Rom. 3:24; Eph. 1:7). God set His seal of approval on the work of Christ when He raised Him bodily from the dead and enthroned Him at His own right hand in Heaven, being made the only Head of the Church (Eph. 1:20-23; Col. 1:18). He is the Lord of the individual (John 13:13), the High Priest over the House of God (Heb. 7:20-28; 10:21), the Advocate on behalf of His people (1 Jn. 2:1), and the Judge of all (Acts 17:31).
  • In the immediate and eternal salvation of every person who truly believes on Christ, and rests, by faith, upon His finished work as the only righteous ground on which a holy God can forgive sins, and that all believers are to give the witness of a good conscience before God, being baptized by immersion (Acts 8: 36-39).
  • That all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour are instantly born again of the Holy Spirit, indwelt by Him, and by the same Holy Spirit are baptized into the one Body of Christ, the Church (1 Cor. 12:12-14).
  • That the early Church met together and “continued steadfastly in the apostle’s doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers,” and that this is God’s pattern for the Church today.
  • In the personal, imminent, and premillennial coming of the Lord to the air to rapture the Church (1 Thess. 4:13-17).
  • In the revelation of the Lord in glory at His second advent, to establish His kingdom visibly on earth and to reign in righteousness (2 Thess. 1:6-10), after which shall be set up the Great White Throne judgment in the heavens for the judgment of “the dead, small and great” (Rev. 20:15), the present heavens and earth will pass away and a new heaven and earth will be formed wherein righteousness shall dwell and the eternal Day of God will be ushered in (2 Pet. 3:10-13).
