Statement of Faith

THE BIBLE.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God; that it is inerrant and infallible, the supreme and ultimate authority in all matters of faith and conduct understood only through the illumination and teaching of the Holy Spirit.

 

THE GODHEAD.

We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in 3 persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit; and that these three are one God Sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

 

THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.

We believe in the true and proper deity of our LORD JESUS CHRIST; in His virgin birth;  in His real and complete humanity; in His sinless life; His authoritative teaching; in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood; in His bodily resurrection; in His ascension to the Right Hand of The Father; in His Heavenly intercession; in His personal, pre-millennial and pre-tribulation return to receive His Church; and to establish His Millennial  Kingdom.

 

THE HOLY SPIRIT.

We believe In the deity Holy Spirit who proceeds from The Father and The Son. The Holy Spirits work is – to convince the World of Sin, Righteousness and Judgment; to teach; to guide into all Truth; to bring the word of Christ to remembrance; to Glorify Christ; to show things to come; to produce fruit in the life of the Believers; to equip believers for effective service and ministry.

 

MANKIND.

We believe in the total depravity of fallen Human nature, rendering men subject to the wrath of God.

 

SALVATION.

We believe that salvation is available to all; that includes justification, sanctification and glorification ; that repentance for sin and faith in the LORD JESUS CHRIST are essential to salvation; that the repentant sinner is thus justified by faith alone; that this is evidenced in Holy Living.

THE CHURCH,

We believe in the unity and priesthood of all believers.

 

THE COMMISSION.

We believe that the Great Commission of  the LORD JESUS CHRIST to all believers is “Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. Teach all Nations, baptizing them in the Name  of the Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost, and observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.”

 

THE COMING KING.

We believe in the Personal return of the LORD.

We believe in 'The Rapture' when Believers will be summoned to meet the Lord in the air, and ushered into the Courts of Glory.

We believe in a very public, Glorious  Appearing, when He comes from Heaven with His Church, ‘The Bride’, to reign for 1000 years.

We believe that He has a plan for Israel and that He has not cast them aside forever. A Remnant will be restored.
 

THE FUTURE STATE.

We believe in the resurrection of the Just and the unjust; the eternal Blessedness of the Redeemed in Christ and the eternal punishment of those who have ignored or rejected the offer of Salvation.
