Learn more about our faith

The Holy Scriptures. We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God: true, immutable, steadfast, and unchangeable. 2 Timothy 3:16, 17

The Eternal Godhead. We believe God is Triune, Father, Son and Holy Spirit; the Three are coexistent, coeternal, and equal in divine perfection. 1 John 5:7

The Fall of Man. We believe that man was created in the image of God, but that by voluntary disobedience he fell from perfection. Genesis 1:27; Romans 5:12

The Plan of Redemption. We believe that while we were still sinners Christ died for us, and with His life’s blood purchased the pardon for all who believe in Him. John 3:16; Romans 5:8

Salvation Through Grace. We believe that we are saved from our sin completely through God’s grace; that we have no righteousness or ability to contribute to receiving God’s love and favour. Ephesians 2:8

Repentance and Acceptance. We believe that upon sincere repentance and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God, accepted as though we had no sin. Romans 10:6-10; 1 John 1:9

The New Birth. We believe that the change that takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one and after we receive Christ and His Spirit, we will have new desires, interests and pursuits in life. 2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20

Daily Christian Life. We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified (cleansed from sin) daily, growing stronger in faith, power, prayer, love, holiness and service. 2 Corinthians 7:1

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that water baptism by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is an essential response to Jesus’ command and testifies to His lordship as Christ and King. Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4. We believe in remembering Jesus’ death as we observe the Lord’s Supper by receiving the symbols of the bread and juice of the vine and rejoice in His triumph over death on the cross. 1 Corinthians 11:24-26

Baptism of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to exalt Jesus, to live lives of holiness, and to be witnesses of God’s saving grace. (Acts1:5, 8; 2:4)

The Spirit Filled Life. We believe that it is the will of God that believers walk in the Spirit daily and He gives us the grace to do so.(Ephesians 4:30-32)

The Gifts and Fruit of the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit gives gifts to believers, and these will build up the Body of Christ (His Church). As evidence of a spirit-filled life, believers show spiritual “fruit” as a result: love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22)

Moderation. We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should not lead them into extremes or fanaticism.Their lives will model that of Christ in uprightness, balance, humility and self-sacrifice. (Colossians 3:12, 13; Philippians 4:5)

Divine Healing. We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith. He, who does not change, is still willing and able to heal the body, as well as the soul and spirit. (Mark 16:17, 18; James 5:14-16)

The Second Coming of Christ. We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent; the certainty of His coming and the fact that no man knows the hour of His coming prompt our evangelistic efforts; that the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven, the dead in Christ shall rise and the redeemed will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air. (Matthew 24:36, 42, 44; 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17)

Church Relationship. We believe it is our sacred responsibility to identify ourselves with a congregation of believers with whom we can worship God, observe the ordinances (Marriage, Baptism and the Lord’s Supper), exhort and support one another, work together for the salvation of others and the advance of the Lord’s Kingdom. (Acts 16:5; Hebrews 10:24, 25)

Civil Government. We believe that civil government is by divine appointment and that civil laws should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God. (Acts 4:18-20; Romans 13:1-5)

Judgement. We believe that all will stand someday before the judgement seat of Christ; the redeemed to receive everlasting life, and the unrepentant to receive everlasting punishment. (Revelation 20:11,12; 2 Corinthians 5:10)

Heaven. We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of the living God and of all believers who have accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour. (John 14:2; Revelation 7:15-17)

Hell. We believe that hell is a place of darkness, deepest sorrow, and unquenchable fire, which was not prepared for man but for the devil and his angels; yet it will become the place of eternal separation from God for all who reject Christ as their Saviour.(Matthew 13:41, 42; Revelation 20:10, 15)

Evangelism. We believe that bringing others into relationship with Jesus Christ as their Saviour is the most important responsibility of the Church. (James 5:20; Mark 16:15)

Tithes and Offerings. We believe that tithes and offerings are ordained of God for the support and growth of His cause, to sustain His ministry, spread the Gospel and release personal blessing. (Malachi 3:10; 1 Corinthians 16:1, 2)
