Statement of Faith
STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that the Bible alone, and the Bible in its entirety, is the written Word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, inerrant in all it teaches, and therefore absolutely authoritative as the only infallible rule for faith and life.
We believe that there is but one living and true God, the Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things. We further believe that the one God exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all three having the same nature, attributes and perfections.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, perfectly obeyed the law of God, died on the cross as an atonement for sin and rose again bodily on the third day for our justification. He ascended to the Father’s right hand where he now reigns and intercedes for His redeemed.
We believe that God in mercy and grace redeems all who repent of their sin and trust in Jesus Christ alone for their salvation, justifying them through faith in the Saviour and giving them new life by the Holy Spirit. Believers are kept by the power of God to eternal salvation and are called to a life of discipleship and holiness in joyful obedience to Jesus Christ.
THINGS TO COME
We believe that at a day and an hour known only to God, our Lord Jesus Christ shall come again personally, bodily, visibly, gloriously, to consummate His kingdom of righteousness and peace. We believe in the resurrection of the unrighteous to eternal punishment and the resurrection of the righteous to eternal glory in the new heaven and the new earth.
