We believe in the verbal, complete inspiration in the original writings, and God's preservation of His pure words to every generation. We believe that theScriptures are inerrant, unfailing, and God-breathed. We believe the Bible is not just to be learned, but to be lived out.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and HolySpirit, co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, while still God, having been conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His finished work on the cross as a substitutionary sacrifice (He took our place); and that our justification is made certain byHis literal, physical resurrection from the dead.
The Fall of Man
We believe that man was created in innocence under the law of his Maker, but by voluntary transgression fell from his sinless and happy state, in consequence of which all mankind are now sinners.
We believe that the message of salvation is clear - “repentance toward God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ”. We believe that salvation is by grace alone.
We believe that Jesus Christ died for every man, and that each individual person chooses to accept or reject the grace of God. We believe that men are justified by faith alone and are accounted righteous before God through only the merit of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
We believe that eternal life is the present ownership of every believer.
Resurrection and Return of Christ
We believe that Christ rose bodily “The third day according to the Scriptures”;that He ascended “to the right hand of the throne of God”; “that this same Jesus shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven”; “that this same Jesus shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven”; that the “dead in Christ shall rise first”; that the living saints “shall all be changed in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet sound”.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is the One who reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, dwelling in all believers and sealing them unto the day of redemption.
We believe in the Genesis account of creation, and that it is to be accepted literally, and not allegorically or figuratively; that man was created directly in God’s own image and after His own likeness.
We believe that the New Testament church is a local gathering of baptized believers who have willingly joined themselves together to make disciples who make disciples. The Lord is doing His work in this world through local churches.
The command to give the gospel to the world is clear and unmistakable and this Commission was given to the churches.
