Our Purpose Statement

To magnify God’s name and to equip ourselves to minister to one another and to the world.
 
Statement of Faith
 
  • We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be inspired by God, and without error in the original writings.  These same Scriptures are the final authority in all matters of faith and life.
     
  • We believe in the Trinity as being God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit; one God, made manifest in three persons who are co-equal and co-eternal.
     
  • We believe in Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord, the only virgin-born Son of God.  He is the unique person of the universe, being truly God and truly humanity in one person forever.
     
  • We believe that Adam was created in the image of God, that he sinned and thereby incurred spiritual death which is the separation from God and that as a result, all human beings are now born with a sinful nature.
     
  • We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that all who put their trust in Him and receive Him by faith as their personal sin-bearer are born again of the Spirit of God, thereby becoming children of God.
     
  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of our Lord, His ascension into Heaven, and His present ministry of intercession there for us as High Priest at the right hand of God.
     
  • We believe that all who are born again of God’s Spirit are baptized into the body of Christ at the moment of saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, and that this one baptism is to be followed by continual infillings of the Spirit.  We believe therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
     
  • We believe in the personal bodily return of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ at a day and hour known only to God.
     
  • We believe in the resurrection of the just and of the unjust, and in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and eternal punishment of the unjust.
