WHAT WE BELIEVE
TRINITY AND SOVEREIGNTY
We believe in the sovereignty of one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God upholds and rules over all things. He governs and reigns supreme over the entirety of creation including over mankind, accomplishing through nature and man his eternal purposes. Yet, at no time is God’s integrity violated, and at no time does he violate our integrity, responsibility or our freedom to choose (Isiah 46: 9-10; Ephesians 1: 11; Ecclesiastes 7: 13; 1 Timothy 6: 15; Psalms 115: 3; Daniel 4: 35).
We believe that the scriptures of the Old Testament and New Testament in their original writing are fully inspired by God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
We believe that human beings, though created in the image of God, are sinful, guilty, and lost without Christ.
DEITY AND WORK OF CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ, as begotten by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, is fully God and fully man. We believe that on the cross Jesus Christ became sin for us, was judged by God and died in our place. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into Heaven, and His present ministry as our High Priest and advocate with the Father.
We believe that all who are justified by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. We believe other religions and ideologies are not alternative paths to God, and that human spirituality, if unredeemed by Christ, does not lead to God but to judgement.
ETERNAL SECURITY AND ASSURANCE OF BELIEVERS
We believe that all the redeemed, once saved, are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever (John 6: 37–40; John 10: 27–30; Romans 8: 1; Romans 8: 38-39; 1 Corinthians 1: 4–8; 1 Peter 1: 5). We believe that it is the privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion for the flesh/for sin (Romans 13: 13-14; Galatians 5: 13; Titus 2: 11–15).
