We believe in one God, Creator of all things and eternally existing in a loving unity of three

equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Possessing infinite

knowledge and sovereign power, God has graciously purposed from eternity to redeem a

people for himself and to make all things new for His own glory. (Deut. 6:4; 2 Cor. 13:14;

Eph. 1:3-11)


We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man. Jesus, the Son of

God (Israel’s promised Messiah), was miraculously conceived through the Holy Spirit and

born of the Virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for our sins, arose bodily from

the dead, ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of God the Father as our

great Prophet, Priest and King. (John 1:1-18; Heb. 7:25; 9:24; Rom. 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2)


We believe that Jesus Christ, as our representative and substitute, shed His blood on the

cross as the perfect, all-sufficient sacrifice for our sins. His atoning death and victorious

resurrection constitute the only ground for salvation. Therefore, salvation is by grace alone,

through faith alone, in Christ alone. (2 Cor. 5:21; 1 Pet. 3:18; Titus 3:4-7; Eph. 2:4-10)


We believe that the Holy Spirit, in all that He does, glorifies the Lord Jesus Christ. He

convicts the world of unrighteousness and initiates salvation by calling sinners to repent of

their sin. The Holy Spirit regenerates and baptizes all believers into union with Christ and

the Body of Christ. Thus, the Spirit indwells all who believe and he continues to guide,

empower and spiritually gift Christians for Christ-like living and service. (Jn. 16:8-11; 2 Cor.

3:6; 1 Cor. 12:12-14; Rom. 8:9; Eph. 5:18)


We believe that the Holy Bible (Old and New Testaments) is the verbally inspired Word of

God. The Bible is without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of Gods will

for salvation and the final authority on matters of faith and conduct. Thus, it is to be

believed in all that it teaches, obeyed in all that it requires and trusted in all that it

promises. (2 Tim. 3: 16-17; 2 Pet.1: 20-21).


We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image but they sinned when tempted by

Satan. In union with Adam, human beings are sinners by nature and by choice, alienated

from God, and under His wrath. Only by God’s own initiation and saving work through

Jesus Christ can we be rescued, reconciled and renewed. (Gen. 1:26-27; Rom. 3:22-23;

5:12; Eph. 2:1-3, 12)


We believe that the true church comprises all who have been justified by God’s grace

through faith alone in Christ alone. The Lord Jesus mandated two ordinances for the

church - believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper, which visibly and tangibly express the

gospel. Though they are not the means of salvation, when celebrated by the church in

genuine faith, these ordinances confirm and nourish the believer. (Eph. 1:22-23; Matt

28:19-20; Acts 2:41-42; 18:8; 1 Cor. 11:23-26)


We believe that God’s free justifying grace brings assurance of salvation but must not be

separated from his ongoing sanctifying power and the need for grace to persevere in the

faith. We are called to live out our faith with love for one another, compassion toward the

poor and justice for the oppressed. In obedience to Christ’s commission, we are to make

disciples among all people, always bearing witness to the gospel in both words and deeds.

(John 6:37-40; 10:27-30; Rom. 13:13-14; Gal. 5:13; Titus 2:11-15)


We believe in a single, visible and bodily return of Jesus Christ to the earth. His second

coming will be at a time known only to God, and therefore demands constant expectancy

and motivates believers to godly living, sacrificial service and energetic mission.

Finally, we believe that when Christ returns he will raise the dead bodily and gather all the

nations before him for the final judgment of the world. Perfect justice will be served, with

the unbeliever being eternally condemned to life without God and the believer being

eternally united with God in the new heavens and new earth. (Matt. 24:36-51; 1 Thess.

4:13-18; 2 Pet 3:10-13; 1 Cor. 15:20-26; Matt 25:31-46).
