Statement of faith

  • We believe that the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, was given by inspiration of God, and is our only rule in matters of faith, doctrine, and practice.
  • We believe in creation; that man was created by the direct act of God and in the image of God.
  • We believe that Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallen creatures.
  • We believe that all men are born in sin, and thus the necessity for repentance.
  • We believe in the incarnation, the virgin birth, and deity of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God.
  • We believe in His vicarious and substitutional death on the cross as (the) atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His own blood at Calvary.
  • We believe that the atonement also provides deliverance and healing for those who believe in His name.
  • We believe in justification by faith, and sanctification to be the way of holiness.
  • We believe that grace and works as recorded in James, chapter two, are compatible.
  • We believe that justification must be sustained by obedience to God's Word.
  • We believe in the resurrection of His body from the tomb, His ascension to Heaven, and that He is now our Advocate.
  • We believe the church to be a direct result of the first advent and that men are to be actively drawn into it.
  • We believe water baptism to be scriptural when administered to believers only.
  • We believe in the necessity of the New Birth, and that this New Birth is through the regeneration by the Holy Spirit as recorded in the second chapter of Acts.
  • We believe that other tongues is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the restoration of Israel.
  • We believe that He is personally coming again at His glorious premillenial second advent to judge the wicked, to resurrect the righteous dead, and to establish the Kingdom of God upon this earth.
  • We believe that this statement of faith is a sufficient basis for Christian fellowship and that all born-again men and women who sincerely accept this, can, and should, live together in peace, and that it is their Christian duty to promote harmony among the members of the Body of Christ, and also to work together to get the Gospel to as many people as possible in the shortest period of time.
