Statements of Our Faith


There is one God1, Creator of all things2, who is infinitely perfect3, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.4


Jesus Christ is the true God and true man.5 He was sent by the Father6, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary.7 He died on the cross, the Just for the unjust8 as a substitutionary sacrifice.9 All who believe in Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood.10 He rose from the dead according to the Scriptures.11 He is now at the right hand of the Majesty on high as our great High Priest.12 He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace.13

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is a divine person,14 sent to indwell, guide, teach, gift, empower and bear His fruit in every believer the believer15 and convince the world of sin, righteousness and judgment.16


The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for our salvation. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.17


Man was originally created in the image and likeness of God18: he fell through disobedience, incurring thereby both physical and spiritual death. All men are born with a sinful nature,19  are separated from the life of God, and can be saved only through the atoning work of the Lord Jesus Christ.20  The portion of the impenitent and unbelieving is existence forever in conscious torment;21  and that of the believer, in everlasting joy and bliss.22

Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all people.23  Those who repent and believe in Him are justified by grace through faith,24 born again of the Holy Spirit,25 delivered from the dominion of darkness, transferred into the Kingdom of God's Son,26 granted the gift of eternal life and adopted as the children of God.27

It is the will of God that each believer should be filled with the Holy Spirit and be sanctified wholly,28 being separated from sin and the world and fully dedicated to the will of God, thereby receiving power for holy living and effective service.29 This is both a crisis and a progressive experience wrought in the life of the believer subsequent to conversion.30


The Church consists of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, are redeemed through His blood and are born again of the Holy Spirit. Christ is the Head of the Body, the Church31 which has been commissioned by Him to go into all the world as a witness, preaching the Gospel to all nations.32 The local church is a body of believers in Christ who are joined together for the worship of God, for edification through the Word of God, for prayer, fellowship, the proclamation of the gospel and observance of the ordinances of Baptism and the Lord's Supper.33 Provision is made in the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus Christ for the healing of the whole person.34 Prayer for the sick and anointing with oil are taught in the Scriptures35 and are privileges for the Church in this present age.36

Human Destiny

There shall be a bodily resurrection of the just and of the unjust; for the former, a resurrection unto life;37 for the latter, a resurrection unto judgment.38 The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is imminent39 and will be personal, visible and premillennial.40 This is the believer's blessed hope and is a vital truth which is an incentive to holy living and faithful service.41
