             What We Believe:            

  We believe in the one, true, living God, who reveals Himself in the Persons of The Father Almighty, The Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4-5; Isaiah 43:10-13; 45: 5-7; Jeremiah 10: 1-12; Matthew 3:16-17; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13: 14; Ephesians 4: 4-6.)
  We believe in the Creation of the Universe by God, and the invasion of sin into Universe after the Fall of Man. (Genesis 1 – 3; Romans 5: 12 – 21.)
  We believe in the centrality of the Scriptures, the Old and New Testament, as the authoritative Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct. We believe it is essential to the life of the Church that it be a company of people who want, above all else, that their lives be shaped by the powerful and living Word of God. The alternative is clear. Not to be shaped by the Word of God is to be shaped by the world. (Isaiah 8:19-20; 40: 7-8; Matthew 4: 1-11; Luke 21:33; John 17:15-17; II Timothy 3:10-17; II Peter 1: 16-21)
   We believe in the total depravity of man and his inability to attain righteousness apart from the salvation by the only Son of God, conceived by the Holy Spirit, Saviour of the world, the Lord Jesus Christ. (Romans 5; Luke 1:30 – 35; John 1: 1-18)
   We believe in the Gospel of the Grace and that Christ died for our sins, was buried, and rose again for our justification. (Ephesians 2: 8 – 10; I Corinthians 15: 1 – 4; Romans 4: 25)
   We believe in salvation for all who believe, and that only such as receive Jesus Christ by personal faith are born of the Holy Spirit, and by Him are sealed to the day of redemption. (John 3; Ephesians 1:3-14; Titus 3: 4-7)
   We believe in the bodily ascension of Christ into heaven, his enthronement at the right hand of the Father and his coming again at the resurrection of the righteous and unrighteous. (Acts 1:6-11; 7:54-60; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 5:25-29)
   We believe water baptism and the Lord’s Supper as the two central ordinances of the New Testament. They testify to both our New Life in Christ and His suffering for our sins. (Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 6: 3-5; I Corinthians. 11: 23-32). Churches should be given the liberty in determining how these should be administered to believers. (Acts 2: 38-39; 16: 15; 31-34; Romans 14:22; I Corinthians 1: 16-17)
   We recognize the need for creating a covenant between the infant, the believing parents and congregation in the presence of God. We believe this is implemented by the dedication of the infant. This is to prepare an environment for the infant to be brought up in the knowledge of God’s Word, His love and Grace. (I Samuel 1: 24-28; Matthew 18: 1-6; 19: 13-15, Luke 18: 15-17; I Corinthians 7:12-14)
   We believe that God the Holy Spirit has united every believer to Christ by Spirit baptism and that He indwells every believer to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ and to empower and instruct the believer in godly living. (1 Corinthians 12:13; John 7:37-39; 14: 16-18; Acts 1:8; Rom 8:9; Eph. 1:13,14; 4:30; 5:18)
   We believe in the Gifts of the Holy Spirit for building up of faith, and for testifying the grace of God to the world. (I Corinthians 12- 14; Romans 12: 3-8; John 14 - 16)
   We recognize the reality and personality of Satan and his fallen angels. (Job 1-2; Eph. 6:10-18; II Cor. 11:14; Rev.12 :.)
   We acknowledge the eternal life of the believer in the New Heaven and the New Earth and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever and the fallen angels in the lake of fire. (Matthew. 25:31-46; Mark 9:43-48; John 3:16-18, 36; Revelation. 20:10-15; Revelation 21)
