We Believe That:
GOD is the only true God who, through divine mystery, exists in three Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
GOD THE FATHER is the Creator of heaven and earth, provider of all things, our eternal heavenly Father, holder of all covenants, and the final Judge of mankind.
JESUS CHRIST is the only Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, led a sinless life, was willingly crucified as atonement for the sins of man, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, will return to rule the earth with justice, mercy, and truth, and is the only mediator between God and man.
THE HOLY SPIRIT is the comforter sent by Jesus, dwells within Christian believers, bestows spiritual gifts, guides into all truth, draws people to Christ and directs Christians to live a godly life.
MAN was created by God in His image, was created innocent but fell through disobedience, is now born with a sinful nature, and can only be reconciled to God through faith in Jesus Christ.
SATAN is a fallen angel, rules the forces of evil, is the father of lies, has come to earth to steal, kill and destroy, and is subject to God and the name of Jesus.
THE BIBLE consisting of the Old and New Testaments is God's revelation to man, is divinely inspired, infallible and is our sole guide and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.
SALVATION of man is solely by God's grace through faith in Jesus Christ, is bestowed on those who accept Christ as Saviour and Lord, and results in the indwelling of the Holy Spirit and the gift of eternal life and resurrection.
THE CHURCH is the body and bride of Christ, and is made up of all those who believe and have accepted Christ as their Lord and Saviour.
THE FAMILY is a unit ordained by God, sanctified by marriage, and blessed by Jesus Christ
MARRIAGE is the lifelong covenant and union of one man and one woman
WE ALSO BELIEVE IN:
THE SACRAMENTS of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
THE FRUIT AND GIFTS of the Holy Spirit.
THE RESURRECTION AND JUDGEMENT of all people after the second coming of Christ.
