OUR BELIEF

There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment. The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behavior.

Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God's wrath and condemnation. The Lord Jesus Christ, God's incarnate Son, is fully God - He was born of a virgin,  His humanity is real and sinless. He died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over Heaven and Earth.

Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through Jesus Christ.His sacrificial death once and for all time is their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and Man. Those who believe in Christ are pardoned from all their sins and accepted in God's sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them. This justification is God's act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts. The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit lives in all those He has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christ-like in character and behavior and gives them power for their witness in the world.

The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong. The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God's just condemnation on those who have not repented, and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.

The Church is composed of all past and present, who through saving faith in Jesus Christ is to make Him known to the world. 

The personal and imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory and triumph for the final judgment of believers and unbelievers, and the consummation of His Kingdom has a vital bearing on the believer's life and service.
