What we believe

What We Believe…

…to be the truth

THE BIBLE
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, sufficient foundation for teaching, faith and salvation through the knowledge of God and Jesus Christ. All true Christian teaching will be in agreement with the Scripture.

ONE GOD
We believe in one triune God existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

CHRIST
We believe Jesus Christ to be God manifest in the flesh. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, divine miracles, vicarious, atoning death on the cross, His bodily resurrection, ascendance, mediatory work and visible return in power and glory.

SIN
We believe in the total and universal sinfulness of mankind. That in man’s unregenerat state, he can do nothing pleasing to God, and, as a result, must face the universal and just punishment of God for sin.

SALVATION
We believe the only escape for man from his lost condition is the mercy of God offered through the blood of Jesus who suffered on our behalf. Access to this saving grace is gained through faith and repentance. Following a person´s change of heart, the Holy Spirit comes to dwell in the new believer. This experience is described in scriptures as the new birth, and with the help of the Holy Spirit, the new believer begins living in fellowship with and obedience to God. The new Christian becomes a member of the universal body of Christ and should become an active member of a local Church taking water baptism as a declaration of his new life in Christ.

HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the in-filling or baptism of the Holy Spirit as an experience available for every believer as per the Scriptures. We also believe in the gifts of the Spirit as exemplified in I Corinthians chapters 12 and 14, and which are given for the edification of His Church and for power to do His work.

HIS BODY
We believe in the spiritual unity of the body of Christ and the priesthood of all true believers. We believe that all true Christians comprise the body of Christ regardless of denomination.
