What We Believe

We believe:

In the Holy Scripture which is divinely inspired by God, without error, in it’s entirely trustworthy original text and that it is the supreme authority in matters of Christian Faith and conduct.

That there is but one true and living God who, without division in his nature, essence or being, is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In God, the Father, who created the universe and life itself, whose essence is Love and who longs to have an eternal relationship with us, his children, created in his image.

In the Lord Jesus Christ as being the Son of God. He was born in Bethlehem of Mary his mother, a virgin, as it was foretold in the Scriptures. We believe that Jesus lived a sinless human life, raised in Nazareth and that His example guides us as his disciples through his servant-hood displayed in his earthly ministry. We believe in the historical fact of his death on the Cross, which was necessary for our salvation, in his bodily resurrection, his ascension and the promise of his return in power.

In the person of the Holy Spirit, who as both comforter and Guide, seeks to assist us in recognizing our sins andleading us to the path of forgiveness. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the supreme Gift of Jesus Christ, given fully to each believer at the point of faith commitment. The Holy Spirit is our guide for daily living and our Director for the work and mission found in Jesus Christ.

In the salvation of the lost and sinful by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the regeneration by the Holy Spirit and the resurrection to eternal life in the Kingdom of God.

In the baptism of believers in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In the Lord’s Supper in accordance with his command.

In the unity of all true believers, in the Church as with in the Body of Christ.
