Statement of faith

WE BELIEVE IN...
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—
the Father, the Maker of the universe  who will one day judge the world,
the Son, Jesus Christ,  our Redeemer, who became flesh, was born of the Virgin Mary, fully God  and fully man, yet without sin.
   He was crucified, dead and buried and descended
     into Hell, dying in our place, paying the price of
     our sin.
   His atoning sacrifice reconciles us to God.
   He was raised from the dead and ascended to
     heaven where He sits at the right hand of the Father as mediator,
     intercessor and only Saviour  of the world.
and the Holy Spirit,  the giver of life, our guide and our encourager.
   He leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ though new birth and through the present
     operation of His manifold gifts empowers our discipleship, inspires our worship and    enables our witness

The Bible, as the inspired Word of God—fully trustworthy as the foundation in all matters of faith and conduct.

Baptism by immersion of believers and the sharing of the Lord's Supper in remembrance of Christ's death and Resurrection.

The dignity of all people, male and female, made in God's image but who, through sin and disobedience, fall short of God's glory and need redemption through Christ's atoning sacrifice, and this salvation is received by faith alone.

The Church, visible and invisible, the spiritual unity of body of Christ, both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers — given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to preach the Gospel to the world, fulfilling a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.

The visible return of Our Lord Jesus Christ who will come in glory to fulfill the purposes of God.  All people will be raised to stand before the judgment throne of God where those who refuse His grace and salvation through Christ will receive eternal condemnation and those who have accepted Christ as Saviour and Lord will receive eternal life.
