WE BELIEVE

SCRIPTURE

In the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament in their original writings as fully inspired of God, and accepts them as the final authority for faith and life.

THE TRINITY

In one God eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

JESUS CHRIST

That Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true man.

MAN AND SIN

That God created man in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death, physical and spiritual; and that all human beings inherit a sinful nature; which issues (in the case of those who have reached moral responsibility) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.

SALVATION

That the Lord Jesus died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.

THE RESURRECTION

In the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.

THE SECOND COMING

In the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

HOLY SPIRIT

In the personality of the Holy Spirit, His regenerating work and abiding presence of the true believer.

BORN AGAIN

That all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

FINAL JUDGEMENT

In the resurrection both of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed, and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.

THE CHURCH

That the one true church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that the local church on earth should take its character from this conception of the church spiritual, and therefore that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of church membership.

THE ORDINANCES

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith; that Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection, and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of bread and wine as symbolical of the Saviour’s mutilated body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death till He come.

MARRIAGE

That God has ordained the only form of marriage as a heterosexual relationship between a natural man and a natural woman who are lawfully married to each other.
