What we believe (Our Doctrine)

  1. We believe that there is only one God, who is infinitely perfect, the Creator, Preserver, and Governor of all things, eternally existing in three Persons – the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, undivided in essence and coequal in power and glory. (Genesis 1:1, Isaiah 43:10-11, Matt 28:19, John 1:1-2, 2 Corinthians 13:14)
  2. We believe in the full humanity and deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death and His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father. (John 1:14-18, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Matthew 1:23, Acts 1:9)
  3. We believe that the Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God and that it is our supreme authority in all matters of Christian faith and practice. (Matthew 24:35, John 5:39, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21)
  4. We believe that all have fallen short of the Glory of God and as such are justly exposed to the wrath of God. However, the Lord Jesus Christ by His suffering and death has made an atonement for the whole world so that whosoever will may be saved from the power of sin and its eternal consequences. (Romans 3:23)
  5. We believe in the personal justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ Jesus who was crucified and whom God raised from the dead. (Romans 3:24, 4:25, 5:1-2, 5:18)
  6. We believe in the indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit the purpose of which is the receiving of power to live and witness for Christ. We believe that the Baptism of the Holy Spirit can be a separate experience from New Birth for all believers. (John 3:6, John 14:15-17, Acts 1:1-8, Acts 2:1-38, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11, Galatians 5:16-23, Titus 3:5)
  7. We believe in the priesthood of all believers, who form the universal church, the body of which Christ is the head, and which is committed, by His command to the proclamation of the gospel through mutual love, practical service and evangelistic concern throughout the world. (1 Peter 2:4-9, Revelation 5:9-10)
  8. We believe in the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory. (John 14:1-3, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 5:15-17)
  9. We believe in the immortality of the soul, in the resurrection of all people to a final judgement, eternal blessing for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked. (Matt 25:35-46)
  10. We believe in the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as of Divine Appointment of which all believers should avail themselves. (1 Corinthians 11:23-26, Matt 26:26-28, Mark 16:16, Matt 28:19)
