Statement of faith

  1. Jesus is our Lord. We believe He is fully God and fully man, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in the miracles He performed during His Earthly ministry, in His death and atonement for the sins of mankind through His shed blood, in His physical resurrection, in His ascension and personal return to glory, and that He will one day, return to Earth again. (Matthew 1:20; Luke 2:52; John 1:1-4, 14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3; John 1:29; 10:1-18; Romans 5:8; 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 1:4; 1 Peter 3:18; Matthew 28:1-20; Mark 16:1-8; Luke 24:1-53; John 1:20-21:25; 1 Corinthians 15:12-34; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; Hebrews 9:28; 1 John 3:2; Revelation 1:7)
  2. We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God, without error in the original writing, and the supreme and final authority in doctrine and practice. (Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
  3. We believe that all are born sinful, radically depraved, and completely dead in their sins; relationally lost and separated from God. (Genesis 6:5; Psalm 51:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:23; 5:8, 12-21; 7:18; Ephesians 2:1-3)
  4. We believe that salvation and reconciliation is literally a work of God that only comes through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and regeneration by the indwelling Holy Spirit. (John 3:18, 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Timothy 2:5-6)
  5. We believe that the Church is a community of people composed of all who are regenerated through repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and not a building, institution or organization. We believe the body of Christ-followers is the true Church, and is made up of people from all walks of life and throughout the World.
  6. We believe there is only one true God, the Creator of heaven and earth, who is eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 45:5-6; Isaiah 46:9-10; John 17:3; 1 Corinthians 8:4-6; 1 Timothy 2:5; Genesis 1:26; Psalm 45:6-7; Psalm 110:1; Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:17-20; 1 Corinthians 12:4-6)
  7. We believe in the resurrection of the body, and life eternal. Only those who turn from sin and to Jesus in faith and repentance will be raised to eternal reward. Those who do not turn from sin and to Jesus will be raised to eternal punishment. (Matthew 25:31-46; John 5:28-29; Acts 24:15)
  8. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling, the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and walk in the direction Jesus walked. All manifestations or empowerment given by the Spirit will always align with and be in submission to the Spirit speaking through the Scriptures. (Romans 12:3-8; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 4:1-16)
  9. We believe that to be Christian is to be a missionary. The two are synonyms and inseparably linked. All Christians, without exception, are on mission to bring the knowledge and Truth of the Gospel to every people group on the planet.
  10. We believe that all things exist for the glory of God. (Psalm 148; Proverbs 16:4; Isaiah 61:3; Romans 11:33-36; 1 Corinthians 10:31; 2 Corinthians 5:15; Ephesians 1:3-14)
  11. We believe that there is one church; one body of Christ. It is existent through many local expressions or churches throughout the world.
  12. We believe in being radically inclusive and sensitive to all those who are seeking to know more about Jesus without cheapening the very thing they are seeking. Thus we will maintain the uncompromising True Gospel message of His shed blood for our sins, His unmerited grace of repentance and forgiveness working collectively, and the full cost of Discipleship as taught in the Scriptures
