Statement of Faith


Only the sixty-six books of the Bible are the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.

Matthew 5:18; John 10:35; John 16:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13

There is only one true living God who exists eternally in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – and they, being one God, are equal in deity, power, and glory.

Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; John 14:16; Ephesians 4:4-6; Revelation 1:4-6

God created, upholds, sustains, governs, and directs all things.

Psalm 104:1-35; Psalm 139:1-24; Matthew 10:29-31; Acts 17:24-28; Colossians 1:16-17; Hebrews 1:1-3

Our Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin birth, He was incarnate on the earth as fully God and fully man, He is the Christ (Messiah), He lived a sinless life and performed miracles, He willingly died a vicarious and atoning death, He was bodily resurrected, He ascended to the right hand of the Father, and He will return in power and in glory.

Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:34-35; Luke 7:18-23; Luke 9:18-20; Luke 24:4-7; Luke 24:36-48; John 1:1,-5; John 1:14; John 14:1-3; John 20:28-29; Acts 1:11; Acts 2:22-24; Acts 2:33; Acts 5:30-31; Romans 5:8-9; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Ephesians 1:7; Philippians 2:6-11; Colossians 1:13-14; 1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26-27; 1 Peter 3:22; 1 John 3:5; Revelation 1:17-18; Revelation 22:12; Revelation 22:20

The Lord Jesus Christ baptises believers in the Holy Spirit.  The Holy Spirit regenerates, forever indwells, and equips the Christian for godly living and service.  This equipping is inclusive of, though not limited to, the present day operation of signs and wonders and various gifts as described in the New Testament as a testimony of the presence of His kingdom and to empower and edify the Church in fulfilling its calling and mission.

Joel 2:28-32; Matthew 3:11; John 1:12–13; John 3:1–15; Acts 2:1-21; Acts 4:29–30; Romans 8:9; Romans 12:3–8; 1 Corinthians 12:12–13; 2 Corinthians 1:21–22; Galatians 3:1–5; Ephesians 1:13–14; Ephesians 5:18

Humanity, male and female, was originally created in the image of God, righteous and without sin. As a consequence of disobedience, all persons are sinners by both nature and choice, and are, therefore, spiritually dead and justly condemned as children of wrath in the sight of God, wholly unable to save themselves.

Genesis 1:1–3:22; Psalm 51:5; Isaiah 53:5; Romans 3:9–18; Romans 5:12–21; Ephesians 2:1–3

Salvation is by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.  This saving grace of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, also sanctifies us by enabling us to do what is pleasing in God’s sight, that we might be progressively conformed to the image of Christ.  Sanctification and progressively being conformed to the image of Christ is a necessary desire of any genuine believer.

John 1:12–13; John 6:37–44; John 10:25–30; Acts 16:30–31; Romans 3:1–4:23; Romans 8:1–17; Romans 31–39; Romans 10:8–10; Ephesians 2:8–10; Philippians 2:12–13; Titus 3:3–7; 1 John 1:7, 9

When Christians die, they pass immediately into the presence of Christ to enjoy conscious fellowship with the Saviour until the day of the resurrection and the glorious transformation of their bodies.  When unbelievers die, they are consigned to hell to await the Day of Judgment when they shall be punished in the lake of fire with eternal, conscious, and tormented separation from the presence of God.

Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; Luke 16:19–31; John 5:25–29; 1 Corinthians 15:35–58; 2 Corinthians 5:1–10; Philippians. 1:19–26; Philippians 3:20–21; 2 Thessalonians 1:5–10; Revelation 20:11–15; Revelation 21:1–22:15
