The Holy Bible is the Inspired Word of God
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
The Word of God is eternal and unbroken.
(Numbers 23:16-19) (John 1:1-14) (II Timothy 3:15-17)
God’s existence and complete fullness of the Godhead, being in Christ Jesus
We believe in one God, eternally existent as: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4-5) (Matthew 28:19-20) (Mark 12:28--31)
(I John 5:7) (Colossians 2:6-10)
Salvation by Grace
We believe in salvation by grace. This is a free gift from God, given to all who believe in His Son Jesus, the Christ, and accept Him as the Lord of their life. (Matthew 16:21-26) (John 3:16-19) (John 14:6)
(Acts 4:12) (Romans 10:9-13) (Ephesians 2:4-9) (I John 5:9-12)
a. Sanctification is an act of separation from that which is evil and of dedication unto God. (Romans 12:1-2)
(I Thessalonians 5:23) (Hebrews 13:12)
b. Sanctification is obtainable as a second definite work of grace, received by faith in the blood of Christ.
c. Sanctification is realized in the believer by recognizing his identification with Christ in His death and resurrection, and by faith reckoning daily upon the fact of that union, and by offering every faculty continually to the dominion of the Holy Spirit.
(Romans 6:1-11,13; 8:1-2,13) (Galatians 2:20)
(Philippians 2:12-13) (I Peter 1:5).
Deity of Christ
We believe in the deity of our Lord, Christ Jesus. Jesus is God incarnate, and was manifest in human flesh. He was like us in all ways except for one, being free from sin. (Isaiah 9:6-7) (John 1:1-14)
(John 5:22-23) (John 8:54-58) (John 10:30)
Virgin Birth of Christ
We believe that our Lord was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary. (Isaiah 7:14) (Matthew 1:18-23)
Christ Died for Our Sins
We believe in the vicarious atoning death of Jesus, who died on the cross so that we might live -
offering Himself up as the perfect sacrifice for sinful man.
(Romans 5:6-10) (I Thessalonians 5:9-10)
Bodily Resurrection and Ascension of Christ
We believe that Christ is the risen saviour. Jesus rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. (Acts 1:8-11) (Romans 8:31-35)
We believe that all believers should receive water baptism, as a demonstration of our faith, and in obedience to the commandment of our Lord. This act represents a commitment by the believer, and
should be accompanied by a renewal and sanctification via the Holy Spirit. Water baptism is an outward symbol of spiritual identification with His death, burial, and resurrection. We choose to continue
baptism as the apostles did after instruction according to
(Matthew 28:18-20) (Mark 1:4-11)
and fulfilled according to (Acts 2:38) (Acts 8:16).
Fruits and Gifts of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit, for the edification of the body of believers, and enabling the believer to live a life pleasing to God. (Matthew 7:13-23) (Acts 2:38-39) (Romans 12:4-8)
(I Corinthians 12:1-12) (I Corinthians 13:1-3) (Galatians 5:22-26)
The Baptism in the Holy Ghost
All believers are entitled to, should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Ghost and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible
evidence of the baptism in the Holy Ghost is witnessed by the physical sign of speaking with other tongues as the Spirit of God gives utterance. (Acts 2:4; 10:46; 19:6). This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian church. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry (Luke 24:49) (Acts 1:4)
(I Corinthians 12:1-31). With the baptism in the Holy Ghost comes such experiences as an overflowing fullness of the Spirit (John 7:37-39) (Acts 4:8), a deepened reverence for God (Acts 2:42-43),
and a more active love for Christ, for His Word, and for the lost.
Bodily Resurrection of the Saints to Eternal Life
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saints to eternal life.
(Isaiah 26:19) (Daniel 12:1-3) (Matthew 22:30-32) (Mark 12:25-27) (Luke 20:34-38) (John 5:25-29) (Romans 8:22-23)
(I Corinthians 15:35-45) (I Corinthians 15:51-55) (I Corinthians 15:20-28) (Philippians 3:20-21) (I John 3:1-3) (Revelation 20:4-6)
Second Coming and Reign of Jesus Christ
We believe in the second coming of our Lord, Jesus Christ.
(Matthew 24:1-44) (John 14:1-3) (Acts 1:9-11)
(I Corinthians 15:20-24) (I Thessalonians 4:15-17)
(I Thessalonians 5:1-3) (II Thessalonians 2:1-4) (Titus 2:11-13)
Tithes and Offerings
The needs of the New Testament Church, its varied ministries along with its God ordained leadership are to be met by the tithes and offerings of the believers. (Matthew 23:23) (I Corinthians 16:1)
(II Corinthians 9:6-7)
