Statement of Faith

What we Believe

1. There is one true God who lives eternally in three persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirt.

The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption, justification and final judgement.

3. The divine inspiration and infallibility of the Old & New Testament Scriptures as originally given, and their supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

4. The original dignity of all people made in God’s image yet utterly corrupted by sin resulting in the guilt of all mankind, making each one subject to God’s wrath and judgment.

5. The full deity and full manhood of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, His virgin birth, His real and sinless manhood, His death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His Ascension, His present reign in Heaven, His supreme Lordship over His Church.

6. Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin, only through the sacrificial death, once and for all time, of our representative and substitute Jesus Christ the only mediator between God and mankind.

7. By the grace of God, the sinner is justified in God’s sight solely through faith in Christ’s atoning merits.

8. The ministry of the Holy Spirit in making the work of Christ effective to the individual sinner, leading that person to repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

9.The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all who are regenerated, guiding them, in accordance with Scripture, into all truth, producing in them an increasing likeness to Christ in character and behaviour, and equipping them to proclaim the Gospel in the world, to promote justice and love and the building up of His Church.

10. The personal, visible, future return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.

11. The bodily resurrection of all people to face judgment by the Lord Jesus Christ upon His return, with eternal blessedness for the believer and eternal punishment for the unrepentant.
