What do we believe?

Here are some of the fundamental beliefs we teach:
 

The Scriptures Inspired

The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired of God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
  • 2 Timothy 3:15-17
  • 1 Thessalonians 2:13
  • 2 Peter 1:21
 

The One True God

The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent “I AM,” the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • Deuteronomy 6:4
  • Isaiah 43:10,11
  • Matthew 28:19
  • Luke 3:22
 

The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ

The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God.

  • Philippians 2:9-11
  • Hebrews 1:3
 

The Fall of Man

Man was created good and upright; for God said, “Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness.” However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.

  • Genesis 1:26,27
  • Genesis 2:17
  • Genesis 3:6
  • Romans 5:12-19
 

The Salvation of Man

Man’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

  • Luke 24:47
  • Romans 10:13
  • Titus 3:5-7
 

The Ordinances of the Church

Baptism in Water

The ordinance of baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe on Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. Thus they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
  • Matthew 28:19
  • Mark 16:16
  • Acts 10:47,48
  • Romans 6:4
Holy Communion
The Lord’s Supper, consisting of the elements is the symbol expressing our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:4), a memorial of his suffering and death (1 Corinthians 11:26), and a prophecy of His second coming (1 Corinthians 11:26), and is enjoined on all believers “till He come!”
 

The Holy Spirit

  The Holy Spirit gives believers power for life and service.

  • 1 Corinthians 12:1-31
  • John 7:38
 

The Church and Its Mission

The Church is the Body of Christ and exists to bring the message of Jesus to the world (Acts 1:8), to be a people who demonstrate God’s love and compassion for all the world (James 1:27), to be a corporate body in which man may worship God (I Corinthians 12:13), and to be a channel of God’s purpose to build a body of saints being perfected in the image of His Son (Ephesians 4:11-13).
 

Divine Healing

Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
  • Isaiah 53:4-5
  • Matthew 8:16-17
  • James 5:14-16
 

The Blessed Hope

The resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord is the imminent and blessed hope of the church.
  • I Thessalonians 4:16-17
  • I Corinthians 15:51-52
