OUR STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe:

  • The Scriptures are true and hold the upmost authority over humankind (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
  • There is is only one true God. He is the Creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5;Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6-7; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6).
  • All things in the universe exist for the glory of God (Psalm 148; Proverbs 16:4; Isaiah 61:3;Romans 11:33-36; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Ephesians 1:3-14).
  • All people are sinners by birth and choice 1(Genesis 6:5;Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3).
  • The deserved penalty for human sin is physical and spiritual death (Genesis 2:15-17;Genesis 3:19; Romans 5:12; 6:23; James 1:14-15).
  • Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God. He is both fully God and fully human (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4, 14; Colossians 1:15-20;Hebrews 1:1-3).
  • Jesus Christ death was the sacrificial payment for all human sin. (John 1:29; 10:1-18; Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18).
  • Jesus Christ has risen from the dead and will return in full glory and power. (Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; John 1:20-21:25; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16;Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7).
  • There will be a future physical resurrection of the dead. Only those who repent from sin and turn to Jesus will receive eternal life in Glory. Those who do not repent from sin and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour will be raised to eternal punishment (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15).
  • Real faith is in the person and work of Jesus Christ and repentance from sin can one be reconciled to God. (John 3:18,14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Timothy 2:5-6).
