Statement of Faith
Being a few of the fundamental truths of Scripture
We believe that the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, absolutely authoritative and infallible.
We believe that there is only one true God, eternally existent in three Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the following facts about our Lord Jesus Christ: His deity; His creating all things; His virgin birth; His sinless life and nature; His miracles; His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood; His bodily resurrection; His present exaltation at the Father's right hand in heaven; His headship of the Church; His imminent personal, pretribulational return to the air to receive His bride to Himself; and His coming to the earth seven years later to set up His millennial kingdom of power and glory, bringing peace and blessing to the whole world.
We believe in the fall and total depravity of man, making new birth necessary for reconciliation to God.
We believe that the salvation of lost, sinful man is only possible through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ on the basis of His death and resurrection, totally apart from our merit or works of any kind.
We believe that all who turn to God in repentance, personally trusting the Lord Jesus as Saviour are: eternally saved; forgiven of all their sins; indwelt by the Holy Spirit; baptized by the Holy Spirit into the body of Christ, which is the Church; children of God; a new creation in Christ with a new nature; holy priests to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God and royal priests to minister to man.
We believe that all believers should live lives of devotion and service to Christ in separation from the world, while at the same time expressing their membership in the body of Christ by gathering unto the Name and Person of Christ for worship, prayer, study and ministry of the Word of God with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart, spreading the gospel at every opportunity and waiting expectantly for the coming of Christ, which is their blessed hope.
We believe in the bodily resurrection (or changing, if living) of the saved at the rapture to be forever with the Lord in the glory and blessedness of heaven, and the bodily resurrection of the unsaved about 1,000 years later into everlasting, conscious torment and punishment in hell.
