Inspiration of Scripture
We believe in the verbal inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given. We hold the Bible to be the Word of God, authoritative in its pronouncements and sufficient for our guidance in all matters of faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; 3:2).
We believe that God is one God, revealed in Scripture as in Mark 12:29. The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are an essential unity, one in essence, attributes, glory and majesty, eternal in all their ways (Matthew 28:19; Mark 12:29; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Isaiah 42:8; 46:9-10).
We believe that Jesus Christ was God manifest in the flesh, conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, thus being perfect God and perfect man (Colossians 1:15-20; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18, 25; Luke 1:35).
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit, the Comforter sent down to earth at Pentecost. Being omnipresent, He is present in all places at all times with the Father and the Son. It is by the Holy Spirit that every believer is baptised into the one body of which Christ is the head. Every Christian is indwelt by the Holy Spirit and is made by Him a member of the Church universal (John 14:16-18, 26; 15:26; 1 Corinthians 12:7, 11-13; Romans 12:5; Galatians 3:26-27; Ephesians 1:13-14).
The Death of Christ
We believe that the death of Christ upon the cross was substitutionary in character, a propitiatory sacrifice by which reconciliation is effected between God and man (Romans 3:21-25; 2 Corinthians 5:18-19, 21; Titus 2:14; 1 Peter 2:24; 3:18; 1 John 3:5).
The Resurrection of Christ
We believe that our Lord Jesus literally and physically rose from the dead, that He was seen by His disciples over a period of 40 days, and that he ascended in His glorified body to the right hand of God (Mark 16:19; Acts 1:3, 9; 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 12, 20, 23).
We believe that there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. He is the only way to the Father, the only name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved (1 Timothy 2:5-6; John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Hebrews 8:6; 9:15, 24; 12:24; 1 John 2:1).
The Sinfulness of Man
We believe that through the fall of the first man, Adam, sin entered into the world, and death by sin (Romans 3:23). As sin came by the disobedience of one (Adam), so by the obedience of one (Christ), many shall be made righteous. This is the work of the Holy Spirit in the heart of the believer. The Holy Spirit reveals what Christ has accomplished for us through the Gospel (Romans 5:12,15-19; Ephesians 2:1-5; 1 Peter 1:23).
The Salvation of Man
We believe that salvation is entirely by grace through faith in Christ Jesus, not of works, lest any man should glory (Luke 19:10; John 3:16-17; Romans 3:27-28; 1 Corinthians 1:26-31; Ephesians 2:4-9; 1 Timothy 1:15; Hebrews 7:25; 1 Peter 2:24).
The Return of Christ
We believe that Jesus will return in person to take His people to be with Himself, to set up His Kingdom in power and glory, and to judge all of mankind (Matthew 25:31-33; 1 Corinthians 15:51-58; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 9:28).
The Resurrection of the Just and Unjust
We believe that there will be a resurrection of the dead, of both the just and unjust, and that the former will enjoy eternal life and the latter eternal punishment (Revelation 20:1, 6, 11, 14; Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; 1 Corinthians 15:50-57).
We believe that Satan is a created spiritual being, a fallen angel (Genesis 3:14-15; Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:12, 17), that old serpent called the Devil and Satan (Revelation 12:9). Satan, the god of this world, has blinded many eyes (2 Corinthians 4:4), for he is a liar and there is no truth in him (John 8:44). There is a place prepared for the Devil and his angels and those who do not know God through Jesus Christ (Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:10).
