The Holy Bible

We believe the Bible to be ‘the Scriptures of Truth.’ Divinely inspired and infallible. It is the supreme and final court of appeal in all issues of faith and conduct.

 

The Godhead

We believe in the Unity and Trinity of the Godhead.  Almighty God exists in three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

The Lord Jesus Christ

I.  We believe in the full orbed Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ.

II.  We believe in His pre-existence as the ‘Son of God’ who became the ‘Son of Man.’  The Godman - fully God and yet fully Man.

III.  We believe in His miraculous ‘Virgin birth,’ the Holy Spirit performing the paternal act in Mary’s womb.

IV.  We believe in His impeccable sinless life living for us and keeping for us the law of God we were unable and unwilling to keep.

V.  We believe in His astonishing miraculous ministry.

VI.  We believe in His substitutional and atoning sacrifice at Calvary,  paying in full by His Blood and death the price God demanded for sin.

VII. We believe in the efficacy and the power of the shed Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem and cleanse a person from their sin.  On account of the ‘shed Blood’ all the just demands of a thrice Holy God have been fully satisfied.  Christ alone is the ‘Lamb of God that takes away the sin of the world.’  No other remedy can wash a person from their sin.  ‘Nothing but the Blood of Jesus’.

VIII. We believe in His bodily resurrection - rising from the grave on the third day according to the scriptures, and ‘Because He lives, we shall live also.’

IX. We believe in ‘His beautiful high priestly ministry’ as He stands ‘Bodily’ for us in the presence of God making intercession for us.  He alone is our Mediator between God and man.

X.  We believe in His ‘personal’ Second Coming - Bodily, Literally and Physically, to resurrect the righteous dead, to translate the living church and to set up His glorious and everlasting Kingdom.  

 

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the sovereignty and works of God the Holy Spirit and that the New Testament experience of the baptism with the Holy Spirit and His miraculous gifts, including divine healing, are still available today having never been taken out of the church.    

 

The Church

We believe the church of Jesus Christ is made  up of the sum total of men and women from every age and nation under heaven who have experienced the New Birth and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.  

 

The Ordinances

We believe in a regular observance and use of the ordinances of the church such as the Lord’s Supper, Believers’ Baptism and anointing the sick with oil.  

 

The Future State

We believe in the punishment and judgement of the ungodly in the lake of fire, which the Lord Jesus Himself refers to several times as ‘Hell Fire.’ This is the solemn fate of the Christ rejector.  That is why, ‘knowing the terror of the Lord - we persuade men!’

Therefore we believe in the eternal conscious bliss of the redeemed and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
