Our Faith

We believe the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the infallible Word of God, the source and rule of all our faith and practice. They are fully inspired by God and therefore serve as the authoritative guide for Christian understanding, life and ministry.We believe in one God infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe God the Father is the creator of heaven and earth. He made man for fellowship with Himself, and intended that all creation should live to His praise and glory. We believe that Jesus is the true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. Further, He arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven, where He is at the right hand of God; Jesus now is our High Priest.

We believe that the ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and during this age to convict men, to regenerate the believing sinner, and to indwell, guide, instruct and empower the believer to Godly living and service. We believe salvation, the gift of God, is provided solely by His grace through faith in Christ. By turning from sin in repentance, looking to Christ and His death on the cross, man receives eternal life and is born again. There is no other name but Jesus Christ by which men may be saved. We believe that water baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church. We believe that the Holy Spirit is available to all who believe in Jesus Christ, enabling them to exercise power in ministry and mission. This promise of the Father, that the Holy Spirit would be sent in power, was not only to the early disciples but continues through generations to come.

We believe that the true Church is composed of all such persons who through saving faith in Jesus Christ have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead: of the believer to everlasting joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting punishment.
