Statement of Faith

Bible.jpg
  • We believe the Holy Bible to be the true, inspired, irrefutable and infallible word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).
     

  • We believe in the Trinity: one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit (1 John 5:7-8).

     

  • We believe that God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth (Genesis 1:2).

     

  • We believe that man was created good and upright but that through the original sin of Adam and Eve, he fell from God and became sinful in nature. We believe that God’s plan is to restore man back to Himself (1 Corinthians 15:22).

     

  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God sent to earth for the salvation of mankind (John 3:16), that He was supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary and was without sin.

     

  • We believe that Jesus died on the cross on Calvary to redeem us from our sins and for the salvation of mankind. (1 Peter 2:24). We believe that He arose from the dead on the third day (Ephesians 2:4-6).

     

  • We believe that we must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God (John 3:3).

     

  • We believe Jesus is the Way, the Truth, and the Life and that no-one comes to the Father except through Him (John 14:6). We believe that there is no other Name under heaven, given to mankind, except that of Jesus Christ, by which men may be saved (Acts 4:12).

     

  • We believe in repentance and baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins (Acts 2:38).

     

  • We believe in the redemptive power of the cross to provide healing for our bodies in answer to the prayers of Christians (2 Kings 20:5).  We believe that Jesus was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; that the punishment for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed (Isaiah 53:5).

     

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, was given to the believers after the ascension of Christ (John 14:26). We believe that we are living in the dispensation of the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:2) and that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Titus 3:4-7).

     

  • We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit, is given to believers who ask for Him to fill their life with His presence. We believe in the sanctifying and indwelling power of the Holy Spirit which enables Christians to live a holy and separated life in this present world (Matthew 3:16).

     

  • We believe in the Blessed Hope, which is the rapture of the Church of God, which is in Christ, at His return (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).

     

  • We believe in the Second Coming of Jesus Christ when the dead in Christ will rise first and God will bring, with Him, all those who remain in Jesus (1 Thessalonians 4:14-17).

     

  • We believe in eternal life with the Lord Jesus Christ for all who have accepted Him as their Lord and Savior (Romans 6:23).

     

  • We believe in eternal death which is punishment and the wage for a life of sin.  (Romans 6:23).
