STATEMENT OF FAITH

WE STRONGLY BELIEVE THE FOLLOWING

  • Believe in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. They are one God but with distinct personalities and distinct roles. That One God created the universe. 

  • Believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God in its entirety and that it has no contradictions against itself. 

  • Believe Jesus Christ is the Messiah, the Saviour, the Son of God who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and was raised from the grave. He will return as our victorious Lord.

  • Believe our salvation comes only through Jesus Christ and cannot be earned our good deeds. It is but a gift of God to all those who believe in Jesus Christ.

  • Believe the church, as the body of Christ, is the extension of Jesus Christ’s character, attitude, behaviuor, and mission in our world today.

  • Believe faith in Jesus requires repentance, confession of that faith before witnesses, and obedience to His Word. Baptism by immersion demonstrates our faith and obedience while it depicts our union with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection.

  • Believe man was created in the image of God and that He gives gifts to both men and women through the Holy Spirit for the benefit of the church’s ministry.

  • Believe everyone who accepts Christ has the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit who acts as a Comforter, Guide, and Counsellor.

  • Believe that humility in prayer is the foundation for all we do and that celebrating communion together weekly is beneficial for all Christians.

  • Believe marriage has been established by God. This church defines “marriage” as the exclusive covenantal union of one man and one woman in which such union is a lifetime commitment. A civil government’s sanction of a union will be recognised as a legitimate marriage by the church only to the extent that it is consistent with the definition of “marriage” found in these Articles.

  • Believe that God wonderfully and immutably creates each person as male and female. These two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the image and nature of God. (Gen 1:26-27.)

  • Believe in the judgment of both dead and alive. We believe in literal Millennium, Heaven and Hell.
