Worship

To worship God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit;

Build

To build up and equip the church of Jesus Christ through the preaching and teaching of the Word and through the Spirit’s empowering of the church for the work of the ministry.

Confess

To persuade men to repent and confess Jesus Christ as Lord.

Statement of Faith

The Father

WE BELIEVE in GOD THE FATHER, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Jesus

WE BELIEVE in JESUS CHRIST, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teaching, His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people, and His personal, visible return to earth.

Trinity

WE BELIEVE that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory. We believe that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all. We believe that man’s highest purpose is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

The Holy Spirit

WE BELIEVE in the HOLY SPIRIT, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment. We believe that the work of the Holy Spirit is essential for a true understanding of the Scriptures and for regeneration and conversion of the sinner, by leading an individual to repentance towards God and saving faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We believe in the indwelling work of the Holy Spirit for the sanctification of every believer and in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit in the exercise of all the biblical gifts of the Spirit.

The Church

WE BELIEVE in the universal CHURCH, which is the body and espoused bride of Christ, of which Christ is the Head, and which is a spiritual organism made up of all born-again persons. We believe that the establishment and continuance of local churches is clearly taught and defined in the New Testament Scriptures. We believe in the autonomy of the local churches, free of any external authority and control. Its central calling is to preach the Gospel, promote righteousness and justice and to become a spiritual community where people profoundly connect with God and each other.

Man

WE BELIEVE that MAN was created in the image and likeness of God, but that through Adam’s sin the race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and by choice became alienated from God; man is a depraved sinner and of himself utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins

Scriptures

WE BELIEVE that the SCRIPTURES of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired without error in the original manuscripts, and we believe the infallible rule of faith and practice.

Laying on of Hands

WE BELIEVE also in the LAYING ON OF HANDS for ordination of pastors, elders, and deacons, and for receiving gifts of the Spirit or for healing.

Apostle’s Creed

WE BELIEVE in what is termed “THE APOSTLE'S CREED” as embodying fundamental facts of Christian faith.

The Return

WE BELIEVE in the personal, visible RETURN OF CHRIST to earth and the establishment of His Kingdom, in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, and eternal blessing of the righteous and endless suffering of the wicked.

WE BELIEVE that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ORDINANCES to the church:

1) the Believer’s Baptism and
2) the Lord's Supper. We believe in baptism
by immersion and communion open to all believers.
