Doctrinal Basis

     The Church accepts the Bible (containing the old and new testaments only) as the authoritative word of God.

     We believe and maintain the following:

  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the God-head.
  • The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  • The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  • Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ (as our representative and substitute,) the incarnate Son of God.
  • The physical resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and His ascension to the right hand of the throne of God the Father.
  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective to the individual sinner, granting him repentance toward God and faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The one holy universal church, which is the body of Christ and to which all true believers belong.
  • The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • The resurrection of all believers and eternal life for all who truly trust and believe in Him.
