What We Believe

Our Statement of Faith

We Believe

In One God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, eternally existent, creator of all things.

In Jesus Christ: the only begotten divine Son of God, born of a virgin, and His sinless life, atoning death, triumphant resurrection, His sending of the Holy Spirit, Lordship over the church, continuing intercession, and His second coming and eternal reign on earth over all things, as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

In the Holy Spirit: poured out by the Father and the Son, inspiring and illuminating the Word of God, empowering our prayer, witness and service for Christ.

In the Bible: its divine inspiration and infallible rule of faith and conduct.

In Church oversight by Apostles, Prophets, Pastors, Evangelists, Teachers, Elders and Deacons for the perfecting of the saints that they may do the work of the ministry of Christ in the world.

In the Christian Commission to evangelism and missionary endeavour including our own families and communities, both locally and internationally.

In the proclamation of the gospel with evidence of signs following.

In humanity's inherent corruptness and necessity to be born from above through faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.

In the sacraments of the Lord’s Supper, and baptism by immersion.

In the baptism of the Holy Spirit and the evidence of the gifts and fruit of the Spirit as available to all that believe.

In the rule of Jesus to judge the living and the dead. Those who reject Christ are subject to the justice of God, while those who follow Him are saved by grace through faith and receive eternal life.

In the covenant of Marriage between one man and one woman in loving, life-long commitment before God, who created each before their conception, with a plan and purpose for their lives as individuals and as a team, and in marriage as the only context for a sexual relationship.

In the affirmation of those who are unmarried, as sexuality and marital status is only part of what it means to be human and does not define us.

In the gift of Work, paid or unpaid, and in or outside the church, as a God-given means of self-worth, self-support and the ability to contribute to one's community and society.

In giving to God and others, in time, talents, and money.
