Statement of Belief  

BELIEF

What we believe about the Bible

We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as verbally inspired of God, and truthful in the original writings, and that they are the supreme and final authority in faith and life. (2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21)

What we believe about God

We believe in one God, eternally manifested in three persons: FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT. (1 John 5:7; St John 1:1-2, 14)

What we believe about Salvation

We believe, For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16) We believe that all who receive, by faith, Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord are born again of the Holy Spirit and, therefore, become children of God. We believe that justification means that a person is declared righteous in the sight of God by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone. (Romans 5:1; Ephesians 2:8-10)

What we believe about the Church

We believe the church is a living, spiritual body in which Christ is the Head. We believe that a visible church is a company of believers in Jesus Christ, buried with Him in baptism and associated for the purpose of leading believers toward maturity through worship, instruction, fellowship and evangelism. We believe that Christ has committed to the local church, the ordinances of Baptism and Communion to be observed until He comes, and that Christ has committed to the church the responsibility to proclaim to a lost world their need to accept Jesus Christ as Savior and to recognize Him as Lord. (Ephesians 1:22-23; Romans 6:3-5; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; John 8:31-32; 1 Peter 3:15; John 15:5)

What we believe about Tithing

We practice tithing and offering as an act of obedience to the Word of God; for the support of the church and the building of the Kingdom of God. (Malachi 3:10; Leviticus 27:30; 2 Corinthians 9 :5-6) We believe in doing it God's way, not man's way.

Responsibility of Each Member

We are to study the Word of God and be in the fellowship with like believers. ( Act 2:42-47) We are expected to grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 3:18) Every christian has a responsibility to be a witness (Acts 1:8) of the Good News of Christ and the power to live a Godly life.
