Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible – Old and New Testament – to be the inspired and infallible Word of God, written by many authors under the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit. ( 2 Timothy 3 v 16).

There is one God existing co-equally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is eternal – He is the Creator and Ruler of all that exists. (Deuteronomy 6 v 4, and Matthew 28 v 19).

Man was created in the image of God, and that all have sinned – as a consquence of the fall of Adam and Eve – and thereby have incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God. We believe that the Holy Spirit convicts sinners and indwells those who believe on the Lord Jesus as Saviour. (Romans 5 v 12. Romans 8 v 9).

We observe the ordinance of Believer’s Baptism by immersion upon personal confession of faith in Jesus Christ, and the commemoration of the Lord’s Supper (Breaking of Bread) on the first day of the week. (Acts 2 v 41 & 42).

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born of the virgin Mary and is true God and true man. The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins on the cross at Calvary, and sacrificed Himself there on our behalf so that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood. Jesus rose from the dead and He ascended back into Heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Advocate. (Luke 1 v 35. 1 John 2 v 2. Acts 2 v 23 &24. Hebrews 4 v 14 & 15).

Believers are called to a life of holiness and service, and are sanctified (set apart) by God. Although believers can never reach sinless perfection on earth, each one should strive to grow in faith, love and purity. Together, believers form the Church – the Body of Christ. (Hebrews 10 v 10. Ephesians 2 v 10. James 2 v 17 & 18).

We believe in the personal and imminent return of Jesus for His church (those who believe in Him) first. This event will be followed by Jesus returning to set up His kingdom on earth, and after His 1000 year reign there will be a final resurrection of all people, raised either to eternal life our eternal condemnation. (John 14 v 3. Acts 1 v 11. 1 Thessalonians 4 v 15 -17. 1 Corinthians 15 v 24 & 25).
