WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible (Authorized 1611 King James Version) is the complete revelation from God and its contents are verbally inspired.
"For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man, but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost." 2 Peter 1:21
"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." 2 Timothy 3:16
The Bible is our source of faith and practice and final authority in all spiritual matters.
We believe that God is supreme in His person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes, glorious in His perfection, and sovereign in His will. God is clearly distinguished from things which have no life, He is a person. God is the creator of man and the universe and upholds all things by the word of His power. We believe also in the Trinity. The Father is the fullness of the Godhead invisible; the Son is the fullness of the Godhead manifested; the Spirit is the fullness of the Godhead in His executive agency.
God in His person possesses Omniscience, Omnipotence Omnipresence, and Immutability.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God manifested in the flesh, eternal in His existence, creative in His might, and life-giving in His power. He was born of a virgin, sinless in His life, vicarious in His death, powerful in His resurrection and glorious in His coming. Divine worship is ascribed to him, and divine attributes are possessed by him. We believe that He is now exercising His high priestly work and He is coming soon. We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church, and the pre-millennial coming of Christ.
We believe that Christians receive the Holy Spirit at salvation, and He is their constant source of strength and power. The Holy Spirit possesses the attributes and deity of God, so He is God. We believe the Holy Spirit convicts and regenerates the sinner to salvation; He also indwells the believer as the means of assurance, power, wisdom; He guides the believer in his life and anoints him for service. We believe that the Holy Spirit possesses the characteristic of personality, so He is a person. The Bible refers to Him as a person and not merely an influence.
THE FALL OF MAN:
We believe that man was created in the image of God and by his own choice and willful decision fell into sin. By this act, he became a sinner and was put under the condemnation of God. He was severed from the life of God and became spiritually dead. Man does not possess any qualities whereby he might reconcile himself to God or save his own soul.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of grace. The lost person does not possess any means of saving himself. God has provided a way through the death of Christ to save sinners. He is saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Man is quickened by the new birth to a position of justification before God which consists of the forgiveness of sins and the removal of its guilt and punishment. Through this he is reconciled to God and made a new creature in Christ Jesus.
FREENESS OF SALVATION:
We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free to sinners by the gospel. We believe that the Bible teaches a "who-so-ever-will" salvation. Nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but the voluntary rejection of the gospel.
SECURITY OF THE BELIEVERS:
We believe that those who believe and receive Jesus Christ as Saviour are eternally secure.
We are now in possession of eternal life and shall never be in danger of condemnation or the loss of our salvation.
This assurance rests on the finished work of Jesus Christ which places us as a child of God.
