We believe in the Scripture of the Old and New
Testaments, as verbally inspired by God, inerrant in the original
writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and
We believe in one God, eternally existing in
three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the
Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man.
We believe that man was created in the image of
God; that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but
also spiritual death, which is separation from God; and that all human
beings are born with a sinful nature, and in the case of those who reach
moral responsibility, become sinners in thought, word and deed.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for
our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and
substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified
on the ground of His shed blood.
We believe in the resurrection of the crucified
body of our Lord, in His ascension into Heaven, in His present life there
for us as High Priest and Advocate.
We believe in "that blessed hope", the
personal imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the
rapture of the Church.
We believe that all who receive by faith the
Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become
children of God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the
just and unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the
everlasting punishment of the lost.
We believe that God has given to us as part of
His Church, the Body of Christ, responsibility to care for the members of
that Body, to "weep with them that weep" (Romans 12:15) and to
"Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with
them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the
body" (Hebrews 13:3).
