What We Believe

  1. We believe in the one living and true God, perfect, infinite and eternal, existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; John 15:26; II Corinthians 13:14)

  2. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, born of the Virgin Mary, in His perfect humanity, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the dead and His personal triumphant return.  (Matthew 16:6; Luke 1:31-33; I Peter 3:18; Luke 24:6, 39; Acts 1:11) 

  3. We believe that the Bible was given by divine inspiration and, in the original manuscripts, is the infallible Word of God.  As such, it constitutes the only trustworthy guide in all matters pertaining to Christian faith and conduct.  (II Peter 1:20, 21)

  4. We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the dead, and a future state determined by divine judgment. (I Corinthians 15:54 - 57; I Thessalonians 4:13 - 18; Revelation 20:12)

  5. We believe a Christian is one saved by grace, whose life is transformed into the likeness of Christ by His atoning death and the power of His resurrection, and who will seek to obey the Biblical admonition of non-conformity to the world.  (Ephesians 2:8 - 10; II Corinthians 5:17; I John 1:6, 7; Romans 12:1, 2)  Further, we believe that there is “salvation in no one else for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved”. (Acts 4:12)

  6. We believe in the Holy Spirit who is one with the Father and the Son and who by means of the Word applies to our hearts the things of God.  (John 14:16, 17, 26; John 15:26; John 16 7-14)

  7. We believe in the scriptural teaching of peace, love and non-resistance as it applies not only to carnal warfare, but to every area of the Christian’s social life.

  8. We believe in the church as the body of Jesus Christ, a community of believers, gifted by the Holy Spirit, responsible to God and to each other. (Ephesians 4: 11-16)

  9. We believe in the practice of Scriptural Church discipline. (Matthew 18:15-18; Galatians 6:1)
