Statement of Faith

We Believe…

That “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God,” by which we understand that the whole book called The Bible to be inerrant in the original writing; that it’s teaching is absolute and that the Holy Spirit guided the chosen holy men of God in all that they wrote. 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Timothy 3:16

The Godhead eternally exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These three are One and possess the same attributes, perfection and nature. Matthew 28:19; John 17:5; Genesis 1:1 and 1:3; I John 5:7

In the Deity of Jesus of the Lord Jesus Christ who was begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary; that Jesus Christ was fully man yet remained and still remains fully God. Colossians 1:14-17; John 1:1, 14; John 10:30; Matthew 1:20

In the Personality and Deity of the Holy Spirit who indwells every true believer; who convicts of sin, comforts and makes intercession for the saints. Acts 5:3, 4; John 16:7, 8, 13; Romans 8:26

That man was created in the image of God, after His likeness, but that the whole human race fell in the sin of Adam and was brought under eternal condemnation and judgment; that man can in no way obtain forgiveness and salvation through any work of his own. Genesis 1:26, 27; Romans 5:12; Romans 3:10 and 3:23; Titus 3:5

That Jesus Christ became the sinner’s only substitute before God and died as a propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of the whole world; that salvation comes through no other than Jesus Christ. I John 2:2; 2 Corinthians 5:21; I Peter 2:24; Acts 5:12

In the resurrection of the crucified body of Jesus Christ, that His body was raised from the dead and that He ascended into Heaven and sitteth on the right hand of God as the believer’s High Priest and Advocate. Mark 16:19; Luke 24:39; Acts 1:10, 11; Hebrews 1:3

In the personal and bodily return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Acts 1:11; I Thessalonians 4:16, 17

That the souls of the those who have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation do at death immediately pass into God’s presence and there remain in conscious bliss until the resurrection of the body at His coming, when soul and body reunite shall be with Him forever in glory. I Corinthians 15: 52, 53; I Thessalonians 4:15-18; Luke 16:22, 25; Philippians 1:23; 2 Corinthians 5:8

That the souls of the lost remain after death in misery until the final judgment of the great white throne when soul and body reunited at the resurrection shall be cast “into the lake of fire” which is “the second death” to “be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of His power” (2 Thessalonians 1:8, 9). Revelation 20:5; 11-15; Hebrews 9:27

In the reality and personality of Satan, “that old serpent, called the devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world” (Revelation 12:9). Revelation 20:10; I Peter 5:8

We belive the Bible’s clear teaching that marriage is only between one man and one woman. “Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother and cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh ” (Genesis 2:24) and “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
