What we believe
About the Scriptures
We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be fully inspired of God and accept them as supremely authoritative for faith and life.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe in him are justified on the ground of his shed blood. We believe that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
We believe in God God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
About The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is fully God and fully Man.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to enjoy a love relationship with him but became alienated in that relationship through wilful rebellion. As a result, humans are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts. What is more, apart from Jesus Christ, humans are under slavery to their rebellious ways and are under a sentence of eternal separation from God.
About the Church
We believe that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit; that the local church on earth should take its character from this conception of the Church spiritual, and therefore that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of Church membership.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus, His ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and advocate.
The Return of the King
We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in the resurrection both of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
The Two Ordinances
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper – to be observed as acts of obedience and as theological drama, richly depicting the central beliefs of the Christian faith.
Baptism: The immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection.
The Lord’s Supper: The partaking of bread and wine as symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death till He comes.
