Our Statement of Belief

  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  • The Sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.

  • The divine inspiration and trustworthiness of Holy Scripture, as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the fall, rendering humankind subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty, pollution and power of sin only through the sacrificial death (as our representative and substitute) of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
  • The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, His ascension, His mediatorial work and His personal return in power and glory.
  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The one holy, universal church, which is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong and in which they are united through the Spirit.
  • The resurrection of the body and life everlasting.
