What We Believe
We believe in:
- THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
We believe the Bible is God-inspired (2 Timothy 3:16, 17).
- THE ETERNAL GODHEAD
We believe God is triune: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (2 Corinthians 13:14).
- THE FALL OF MAN
We believe that man was created in the image of God, but by voluntary disobedience fell from perfection (Romans 5:12, 19).
- THE PLAN OF REDEMPTION
We believe that while we were yet sinners Christ died for us, signing the pardon of all who believe in Him (John 3:16; Romans 5:8).
- SALVATION THROUGH GRACE
We believe that we have no righteousness and must come to God pleading the righteousness of Christ (Ephesians 2:8, 9).
- REPENTANCE AND ACCEPTANCE
We believe that upon sincere repentance, and a whole-hearted acceptance of Christ, we are justified before God (Luke 24:46, 47; 2 Timothy 2:24-26; 1 John 1:9).
- THE NEW BIRTH
We believe that the change which takes place in the heart and life at conversion is a very real one (2 Corinthians 5:17; Galatians 2:20).
- DAILY CHRISTIAN LIFE
We believe that it is the will of God that we be sanctified daily, growing constantly in the faith (Hebrews 6:1).
- BAPTISM AND THE LORD’S SUPPER
We believe that baptism by immersion is an outward sign of an inward work (Matthew 28:19, 20).
We believe in the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper by the symbolical use of the bread and juice of the vine (1 Corinthians 11:24, 25).
- BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the baptism of the Holy Spirit is to endue the believer with power; and that His incoming is after the same manner as in Bible days (Acts 2:4).
- THE SPIRIT-FILLED LIFE
We believe that it is the will of God that we walk in the Spirit daily (Ephesians 4:30-32).
12. THE GIFTS AND FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit has spiritual gifts for the Christian; and that believers should show spiritual fruit as evidence of a Spirit-filled life (1 Corinthians 12:1-11; Galatians 5:22, 23).
We believe that the experience and daily walk of the believer should never lead him into extremes of fanaticisms (Philippians 4:5; James 5:19, 20).
14. DIVINE HEALING
We believe that divine healing is the power of Christ to heal the sick in answer to the prayer of faith (James 5:14-16).
15. THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST
We believe that the second coming of Christ is personal and imminent (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17).
16. CHURCH RELATIONSHIP
We believe it is our sacred duty to identify ourselves with the visible church of Christ (Acts l6:5; Hebrews 10:24, 25).
17. CIVIL GOVERNMENT
We believe that rulers should be upheld at all times except in things opposed to the will of God (Romans 13:1-5).
We believe that all shall stand some day before the judgement seat of God; and there receive eternal life or death (Romans 2:1-16; 2 Corinthians 5:10).
We believe that heaven is the glorious eternal home of born-again believers (John 14:1-3; Revelation 7:15-17).
We believe that hell is the place of eternal torment for all who reject Christ as the Saviour (Revelation 20:10-15).
We believe that soul winning is the most important responsibility of the Church (Acts 1:8; 8:4-8).
22. TITHES AND OFFERINGS
We believe that the method ordained of God for the support and spread of His cause is by giving of tithes and free-will offerings (Malachi 3:10; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15).
