Statement of Faith

We believe the Bible, Old and New Testaments, is God’s word for mankind. It is without error, trustworthy and useful for teaching about God and how to live.  It is the only supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

There is one God, existing forever in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Our Lord Jesus Christ is God who became man, born to the virgin, Mary, He lived a sinless life.  He performed many miracles, died as a substitute for us, taking our sins upon Himself.  He rose from the dead on the third day and ascended into heaven.  He will return one day in power to judge the world.  He is God’s only provision for man’s sin and the only way to eternal life.

Humankind, originally created in the image and likeness of God, fell through disobedience, incurring both physical and spiritual death.  The rescuing of humans, who are lost and separated from a holy God because of their sins, is possible only through faith in Jesus and His sacrificial payment for sin by His death on the cross.

The Holy Spirit, fully God, indwells, fills, guides and teaches believers.  He revives us spiritually and enables Christ’s followers to live the Christian life, which includes loving God and our neighbours.

The church, also called “the body of Christ”, consists of all true believers.

In the end, God will judge the living and the dead through Jesus upon His return.  Those who have believed in Jesus and His sacrifice on their behalf will be raised to a joyous life forever and those who have not believed to separation from God and judgment for eternity.
