Beliefs

We believe in the existence of one living and true God who created and sustains all things by the power of His Word. The only God existed before all things and continues to exist as one God. The one God exists in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All three persons have the same nature, attributes and perfections and are complementary in the operations of creation and salvation.

We believe that God the Son came to earth, born of a virgin, thus fully God and fully human. He lived on Earth. He was tempted in every way as we are – yet He did not sin. He was crucified on the cross, died and was buried. After three days He rose bodily from the dead. Thus He provides through the shedding of His blood the only remedy for the sins of the world. Forty days after His resurrection He ascended to His Father where He forever intercedes on our behalf.

We believe that the atoning death of Christ provides justification to believers in Him. This gift of justification compels God’s people to works of faith leading to a life set apart in obedience to God’s will.

We believe that all people are sinners and that salvation is only through faith in Jesus Christ and that regeneration is only through the Holy Spirit.

We believe that God the Holy Spirit prompts the sinner to belief, obedience and repentance. At the point of salvation the new believer is baptized, indwelt, sealed, empowered, set free, given assurance, revealed truth, sustained and given gifts by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the true Christ’s church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the head. We believe in Believer’s Baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper. The local church is a group of baptized believers in Jesus Christ who are associated together in order to acknowledge, declare and submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. We believe that each believer is to be involved in the building up of the local church by using their spiritual gifts.

We believe God has appointed a time when Jesus Christ will judge the just and the unjust; the resurrection of the righteous unto eternal joy and the unrighteous unto eternal separation from God.

We believe in the imminent bodily return of Christ for His church and the establishment of a new order where believers, in their incorruptible bodies, will dwell with and worship Christ forever.

We believe in the divine inspiration of the Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments; and their absolute sufficiency as the only authorized guide in matters of faith and practice.
