What We Believe

3crosses.jpg The Trinity

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

 

God the Creator

We believe that God the Father is the Creator and Sustainer of life.

 

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity and humanity of Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His present rule as Head of the Church and His personal return to earth in power and glory.

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit personally indwells, regenerates and transforms believers into the image of Christ.

 

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God.

 

Sin 

We believe that mankind was created by God in His image, incurred sin’s penalty of spiritual and physical death by Adam’s disobedience and is hopelessly lost — apart from God’s grace.

 

Salvation

We believe that salvation is wholly of God by grace. It is based on the redemptive work of Jesus Christ, who offers complete and unconditional forgiveness to those who repent and place their trust in Him. Salvation is accepted by faith, renders believers adopted sons and daughters of God and leads them to works of service.

 

Eternal life

We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost. Those who receive God’s welcoming, adoptive and reconciling love can have the joy of eternal life. Those who do not accept God are forever separated from Him.

 

The Church

We believe that the Church is a community of believers who are called to a life of faith and ongoing ministry until the coming of Christ’s Kingdom. They are committed to spiritual unity with equality across racial, gender and class differences, as brothers and sisters in Christ.
