Statement of faith
- We believe the Bible to be the divinely inspired and authoritative Word of God, the only infallible rule of faith and practice.
- We believe in one God, Creator and Sustainer of universe, who eternally exists in the three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. His virgin birth, sinless life, redemptive death, bodily resurrection, presents exaltation at God’s right hand and the blessed hope of His personal return.
- We believe that all men have sinned and therefore are guilty before God and are under His condemnation.
- We believe that through the death of His Son, Jesus Christ, God in love provided atonement for sin, so that through repentance and saving faith in Christ, man is delivered from the judgment of God and is born again into life eternal.
- We believe in the deity and personality of the Holy Spirit, who works in men to bring them to salvation through Christ and who dwells in believers, equipping and empowering them for lives of holiness and fruitful service.
- We believe that the Church is comprised of all true believers and that the mission of the Church, with Christ as its head, is to communicate the Gospel of Christ to the entire world.
- We believe in the resurrection of the body, the everlasting punishment of unbelievers and the everlasting blessedness of believers in the presence of Christ.
