Beliefs


 

  • One God in three persons:  the trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:4-6).

  • Jesus’ deity, virgin birth, sinless humanity, substitutionary death for the sins of all mankind, atoning blood, bodily resurrection, ascension to heaven, and coming return for followers of Christ (John 1:1-4; Matthew 1:23; Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4 and 4:15; Acts 1:11 and 2:22-24; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4).

  • The entire Bible is God’s infallible, divinely inspired revelation to man (2 Timothy 3:15-17).

  • Salvation is available to all who repent of sin and have faith in Jesus Christ and that this is the only means to eternal life in heaven. This results in regeneration by the Holy Spirit (Titus 3:4-7; Luke 24:46,47; Ephesians 2:8,9; John 14:6; Acts 4:12).
  • The Holy Spirit presently indwells and empowers believers to live a godly life, and is given as a seal and a pledge of our inheritance in Christ Jesus (Ephesians 1:13,14; Galatians 5:16-18; Romans 8:9).

  •  The resurrection of the body: eternal glory for believers in heaven and everlasting punishment for unbelievers in hell (Revelation 20:11-15; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57).

  • The one true church, the body of Christ, consisting of the spiritual unity of all believers (Ephesians 1:22,23; 1 Corinthians 12:12,27).

  • Obedience to our Lord’s command of evangelism, leading people of all nations to faith in Christ and to grow in Christ-likeness (Romans 10:9-15; Acts 1:8;Matthew 28:18-20; 1 Peter 3:15).
