Statement of Faith – The Church believes in…
The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
The sovereignty of God in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture, Old and New Testament, as originally given, and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering humanity subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
The full deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God; His virgin birth and His real and sinless humanity; His death on the cross, His bodily resurrection and His present reign in heaven and earth.
Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin and death through the sacrificial death, once and for all time, of our representative and substitute, Jesus the Christ, the only mediator between God and humanity.
Justification as God’s act of grace and mercy, in which the sinner is forgiven all sin, and accepted as righteous in God’s sight, only because of the imputed righteousness of Christ, thus received by faith alone.
The need for the Holy Spirit to make the work of Christ effective to the believer, granting repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all those thus regenerated, producing an increasing likeness to Christ in character, and empowering believers for witness in the world.
The one holy universal church, which is the Body of Christ, and to which all true believers belong.
The future personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ as promised, who will judge all humanity, executing God’s just condemnation on the impenitent and receiving the redeemed to the everlasting Kingdom of God.
