What do we believe?

We believe that the Bible, is the complete, inspired Word of God, and is the sufficient revelation of His will for the salvation of humankind, and the divine authority for all Christian faith, life and practice.

We believe in One true and living God who is infinitely perfect and exists eternally in three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that God is holy, all-sovereign, all-powerful, all-knowing and ever present; the creator and controller of all things in accordance with His eternal and unchangeable purpose.

We believe that humankind, although created perfect, disobeyed God and thus became sinners, at enmity with God, spiritually dead and in need of God’s grace and salvation.

We believe that Jesus Christ is both fully God and fully man, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He is the sole and necessary Saviour provided as the remedy by God for the sin of mankind. His substitutionary death on the cross satisfied divine justice and purchased all things necessary to ensure eternal salvation.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God, who leads to salvation, regenerates, illumines, sustains and empowers the believers for godly living and service.

We believe that salvation is a gift from God out of His good pleasure to rescue His people, the elect of humankind by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. Such is the power of sin that man will not and cannot of himself seek God. Therefore God determines to save all for whom Christ died, by drawing them to Himself through the renewing work of the Holy Spirit, thus enabling them to repent of their sins and to turn to Him.

We believe that the church is the body of Christ made up of believers that are predestined, elected, chosen by God, save by grace alone and eternally secured. Jesus alone is the head of the one true church. The true church includes those who are saved in Christ throughout all time and throughout all the world.

We believe that Jesus Christ has commanded two ordinances which the church is to continue to observe to the end of the age, the Lord’s Supper and Water Baptism by immersion. Neither of these has in itself the ower to save, but they are outward symbols of inward spiritual realities.

We believe that there is a future day when the Lord Jesus Christ will personally return. This day will be marked by the resurrection of the dead and of judgment appointed by God with Christ of all humankind. In this day every one who has ever lived, will give an account of their life, and will receive either everlasting punishment in hell or everlasting life with Christ in heaven.
