These are the beliefs we hold to be true
We believe in one God—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Old and New Testament Scriptures, fully inspired by God the Holy Spirit, contain all truth necessary for faith and Christian living.
We believe that humankind has been separated from God by sin, and as such, our human inclinations are to continue in sin apart from God.
We believe that unless we repent of our sins, we are eternally lost without God.
We believe that, through Jesus Christ alone, we can have our relationship with God restored. His sacrificial death is for all humankind without discrimination for we have all been made in the image of God. Anyone may repent of his/her sin, believing in the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour and be spiritually reborn, set free from the penalty of sin and adopted into God’s family, no longer separated from God.
We believe that followers of Jesus are to grow in the holy character of God, maturing in faith. This occurs after being spiritually reborn when the follower commits to God completely, through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit enables us to understand the work of God for spiritual rebirth, as well as the call of God for us as followers to commit oneself fully to God.
We believe that, according to the Bible, our Lord will return, and that eternal judgment for the living and the dead will take place.
