What We Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21

 

The Trinity

We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Matthew 28:19, 2 Cor. 13:14, John 15:26

 

Sin and Us

We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

Romans 5:18, 3:23-24, 3:10-12, John 3:19, Romans 8:7, 3:12, Matthew 19:25-26

 

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.

Acts 16:30-31, John 15:16, Romans 9:10-24, Ephesians 1:5, Hebrews 9:15

 

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

Ephesians 1:20-23, Philippians 2:3-11, Acts 1:11, Revelation 19:11-16

 

Covenant Promises

We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

Exodus 19:5-8, Matthew 5:17, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Luke 22:20, Hebrews 8:8-13

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

Titus 3:4-6, Romans 5:5

 

Jesus' Return

We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

1 Corinthians 15: 24-28, Revelation 20:11-15

 

The Aim of our lives

We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

1 Corinthians 10:31, Ephesians 2:19-22, 1 Peter 2:9, Matthew 28:18-20
