We believe ...

  1. The Bible, in its entirety, is the fully inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God. We accept it as the final authority in all matters of doctrine, faith and life.
  2. There is one God, who is self-revealed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These are the three eternal distinctions in one Divine Being.
  3. The deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of God the Father in Heaven, His personal future and visible return to reign in power and glory.
  4. Man was created good and upright in the image of God, but man, by voluntary transgression, fell, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
  5. The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance toward God, and faith in the finished work of the Lord Christ Jesus – which is by grace through faith.
  6. Those who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour by faith, are born again by the Holy Spirit and become children and heirs of God receiving eternal life.
  7. In sanctification through the Word of God, and by the Holy Spirit; by Whose indwelling the Christian believer is enabled to live a life of righteousness and true holiness.
  8. The bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved to the resurrection of life and those who are lost to everlasting damnation.
  9. The Lord Jesus appointed two ordinances: believer’s baptism by immersion in water as a public witness and confession of faith and identification with Christ, and the Lord’s Supper – the partaking of the emblems – bread and the fruit of the vine – as a memorial of the suffering and death of our Lord Jesus Christ by all believers, till He comes.
  10. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life, and by Whom the Church, the Body of Christ is edified and empowered to carry out Christ's great commission.
  11. The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the whole man - it is the privilege of all believers and as a sign following to confirm the preached Word of God.
  12. The Church is the body of Christ, the habitation of God through the Spirit, with divine appointment for the fulfilment of her great commission. Each Christian believer who is redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit is part of that body. The new birth and a personal confession of Christ are essentials for membership of the local church.
