Our Core Beliefs

  1. The Holy Scriptures, in the original tongues, are the inspired and inerrant word of God; (Matthew 4:4, 2 Timothy 3:16,17)

  2. In one God, eternal and self-existent, Creator and Ruler of the universe, and manifested through the Father, Son and Holy Spirit; (John 1:18, Matthew 3:16-17, John 1:1, Rev 22:13, Romans 9:15). We are Trinitarian.

  3. That Jesus Christ is truly divine and truly human having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; (Matthew 1:18-24)

  4. That Jesus Christ died on the cross and shed His blood as a Sacrifice for our sins; He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Majesty on High; (1 John 2:2, Hebrews 7:27, Mark 15:33-37, Mark 16:1-8, Luke 24:1-45, Luke 24:51, Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:44)

  5. That humankind was created in the image of God, but fell into sin causing separation from God; (Genesis 3:1-24, 1 Cor 15:21)

  6. That salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all; and those who repent and believe on Him are born again of the Holy Spirit, receive the gift of eternal life and become the children of God; (John 1:10-13)
  7. That the water baptism identifies us with the death and burial of Christ and that we should arise to walk in the newness of life; (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 8:26-40)

  8. In the ministry of the Holy Spirit to glorify Christ, to convict, to enable the believer to live a godly life and to empower the Church to carry the gospel into all the world; (Matthew 12:31, Matt 28:19, Luke 1:35, Luke11:31, Acts 13:2)

  9. In the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ for His Church; (Matthew 24:30, Rev 1:7, Rev 22:12)
  10. In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and everlasting separation from God of all those who reject Jesus Christ. (John 1:10-13, Rev 20:11-15, Rev 22:14-15, Matthew 25:31-46)
