We believe that all of Scripture (i.e. both the Old and New Testament) is verbally inspired by God, and is our final authority in all matters pertaining to doctrine, reproof, correction, and instruction in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16,17
We believe in only one true God; One in essence, nature, and attributes, but existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
1 John 5:7
God is Love and He loves all people. It is His desire to reach out to those who are poor, oppressed, widowed or orphaned, and to heal the brokenhearted.
Psalm 68:5,6; 1 John 4:16
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, of His shed blood on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins, of His bodily resurrection and ascension to the Father’s right hand. We do not believe that He is a way to the Father, but rather the only way through which we can receive righteousness, regeneration, sanctification, and glorification. He is, in fact, our salvation.
1 Corinthians 1:30-31
Man is created in the image of God but separated from God by sin. Without Jesus we cannot have a relationship with God.
Genesis 1:26; 1 Timothy 2:5
We believe in the baptism with the Holy Spirit, expressed with speaking in tongues according to Acts 1:8; 2:4; 9:17; 10:44-46; 11:15,16; and 19:6. We believe this experience is distinct from, and subsequent to, the new birth, and can be received by faith.
We believe that all who, in repentance and faith, receive the Lord Jesus as Saviour and Lord are born again.
Acts 20:20-21; Romans 10:9-13
We can have a personal relationship with God through salvation, God’s free gift to man. It is not a result of what we do, but it is only available through God’s unearned favour. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ, and accepting Him as Lord, we can spend eternity with God.
Ephesians 2:8,9; Romans 5:1; Romans 3:24
We believe in water baptism, as taught and demonstrated by Jesus, as the way for believers to identify with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.
Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17
We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross has provided healing for the human body.
Matthew 8:16-17; Isaiah 53:4; 1 Peter 2:24;
We believe in the resurrection of the just and the unjust; one to everlasting life and one to everlasting damnation.
The Bible describes hell as a real place. It is a place of suffering and a place of permanent separation from God for those who die without accepting Christ. God’s desire is that no one be separated from Him for eternity, which is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to earth.
Hebrews 9:27; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:16-18
The Second Coming
We believe in a literal, physical second return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
1 Thessalonians 1:10; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
We believe that the universal church is comprised of all true believers who have received salvation through Christ.
We also believe in and encourage fellowship with a local church.
Gifts of the Spirit
We believe that spiritual gifts and manifestations of the Holy Spirit are for the common good and building up of others today.
1 Corinthians 12:7
