Our Beliefs


We believe the scriptures to be the inspired Word of God and our sole authority in all matters of faith and practice. We believe the Holy Scripture, the sixty-six books from Genesis through Revelation, to be the inspired Word of God, written by holy men of God who were controlled by the Holy Spirit as to the very words used; totally without error, that shall remain, until the end of the age, the only complete and final revelation of the will of God to man; basic to Christian unity and the supreme authority by which all human conduct, creeds and opinions should be tried. (II Timothy 3:15-17; Hebrews 4:12; I Peter 1:10; II Peter 1:21)


We believe there is one and only one living and true God, infinite, perfect, self-existent, holy, personal, loving, all knowing, all powerful, everywhere-present the creator and ruler of heaven and earth; revealed in three distinct persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each of whom is to be honored and worshipped equally as true God.


We believe in God, the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, measureless in power. God is the Father of believers on the Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 4:6) He is the only Father of born-again children of God. Man is a creature by creation; he becomes a child by recreation. (II Peter 1:2 & 4) He is the only living and true God, the Maker and Supreme Ruler of heaven and earth; he is infinite in every excellence. God is the eternal Father—and to be an eternal Father, He must have an Eternal Son.


We believe in the Deity and virgin birth of our Lord Jesus Christ; that He is the eternal and only begotten Son of God; that he was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, not having a human father; that He was sinless in his life, and is true God and true man; that he made atonement for the sins of the world by his death, was buried, and rose again the third day for our justification according to the scriptures. We believe in His bodily resurrection, His ascension into heaven and His life there as high Priest and Advocate; that He is the only Mediator between God and man. We believe that His coming for His own.


We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-eternal and co-existent with God the Father and God the Son; that He came to convict the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; and to regenerate, sanctify, comfort, teach, indwell, guide and empower those who believe in Jesus Christ. (John 14-16) We believe the Holy Spirit is a person, not an impersonal influence. In answer to the Saviour’s promise He came on the day of Pentecost to perform His many ministries on our behalf. (Acts 2) We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every true Christian who, in turn is commanded to be filled with and controlled by the Spirit. (Romans 8:9, I Corinthians 12:13, Ephesians 5:18) We believe that the answer to daily victory in Christian living (Godliness, Christ-likeness, personal holiness) and power for soul-winning is found in the fullness of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 1:8, Romans 6 & 8, Galatians 5) We believe that all worship, witness,
evangelism and missions should be conducted in the power of the Holy Spirit. Satan becoming utterly depraved in character (John 8:44), the great adversary of God and His people (Matthew 4:1-11, Revelation 12:10) leader of all other evil angels and spirits (Matthew 12:22-28, 25:41), the deceiver and god of this present world (Revelation 2:9, II Corinthians 4:4); that his powers are supernaturally great, but strictly limited by the permissive will of God.



We believe that man is depraved. We believe that the material universe, including man, came into being by direct creation of God, and not by process of evolution. We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, under the law of his Creator, but by voluntary transgression (Adams sin) the whole human race fell from that holy and happy state; in consequence of which all mankind inherited a sinful nature and are now sinners, not by constraint but by choice. We believe man became alienated from God, being by nature utterly void of that holiness required by the law of God, and that man is depraved, inclined to evil and therefore under just condemnation to eternal judgment, without defense or excuse, and of his own works is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:1, 1:26-27, 3:1-15, John 1:1-3, Romans 1:18, 3:21-23, 5:12-14, Ephesians 2:1-3, Titus 3:5, Revelation 21:8)


We believe faith in the Lord Jesus Christ is the only conditions for
salvation. (Romans 5:1) Salvation is totally of grace and made possible only through the
vicarious death of Jesus Christ upon the cross of Calvary. There is salvation in none other than
Christ, and the personal acceptance of Him is absolutely essential. To be saved, a sinner must be
born again; the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus, and it is instantaneous, not a process;
evidenced by visible fruits of the Holy Spirit. (John 3:6-7, 16-18 & 36; Romans 6:23; I John 5:13; II
Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 5:22-23; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8-9)


We believe that sanctification is the process by which, according to the Word of God, we are partakers of His holiness; that it is begun by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, in the continual use of the appointed means – especially the Word of God, self-examination, self denial, watchfulness and prayer. The sanctification of believers is consummated at the appearing of the Lord Jesus Christ. I Corinthians 6:11; II Corinthians 3:18; Ephesians 5:25-27; Hebrews 2:11, 10:9-10; I John 3:2).



We believe that the great Gospel blessing which Christ secures to all who believe in Him is justification. This justification includes the pardon of sin and the gift of eternal life. It is bestowed, not in consideration of any works of righteousness, which we have done, but solely through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by virtue of which His perfect righteousness is freely imputed to us by God and that it brings us into a state of blessed peace, needful for time and eternity. (Isaiah 53:11-12; Matthew 6:33, 9:6; John 3:16; Acts 10:43, 13:39; Romans 5:1-2, 6:23; I Corinthians 1:30-31; Ephesians 2:8; Philippians 3:7-9; Titus 3:5-7)


We believe, based on literal meaning, that all true believers possess eternal and everlasting life; that they are kept by the power of God through faith unto salvation; and that they are saved and kept, not by self-righteousness, but by the righteousness of Christ.
(John 3:16, 10:28-29; Romans 1:16; Hebrews 13:5; I Peter 1:3-5; Jude 24-25).


We believe that we are called with a holy calling to walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit; to live in the power of the indwelling Spirit so that we will not fulfill the lustof the flesh. But the flesh with its Adamic nature, which is still present, being with us to the end
of our earthly pilgrimage, needs to be kept by the Spirit constantly in subjection to Christ, or it will surely manifest its presence in our lives to the dishonor of our Lord. (Romans 6:11-13, 8:4,12-13; Galatians 5:16-23; Ephesians 4:22-24; I Peter 1:14-16; I John 1:6-7, 3:5-9)
