STATEMENT OF FAITH
We believe that there is only one true and living God who exists eternally as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. All things were created by Him and for Him and in Him all things hold together. He is worthy of all honour, glory and praise.
Ex 20:2,3 Mt 28:19 Col 1:16.17 1Ch 16:25 Rev 4:11
We recognize Jesus Christ as the Word who became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We believe that He has disarmed the powers of evil and triumphed over them by the cross. He holds all authority in heaven and on earth.
Jn 1:1,14 Col 2:15 1Jn 3:8 Mt 28:18
We believe that God demonstrated His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. We believe that He has rescued us from the domain of darkness and that in Him we have redemption, the forgiveness of our sins.
Ro 5:8 Col 1:13,14
We believe that God raised us up with Christ and that it is by grace that we have been saved, as a gift from God, and not because of any works on our part.
We choose to be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power, and to put on the full armour of God so that we can take a stand against the powers of this dark world and the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. We take captive every thought and make it obedient to Christ.
Eph 6:10-18 2Co 19:5
We acknowledge that apart from Christ we can do nothing. We are completely dependent on Him in order to bear fruit that glorifies God the Father.
We believe that the Bible is the only authoritative standard for truth; that Jesus Christ, the incarnate Word, is the truth Himself, and that the truth will set us free if we hold to Christ's teaching. We believe that God's Holy Spirit will guide us into all truth by taking from what is Christ's and making it known to us.
2Tim 3:16 Jn 1:1 Jn 14:6 Jn 8:31,32 Jn 16:13,14
We choose to obey the Lord our God out of love for Him and to seek His approval rather than the approval of men, while making an effort to live in peace with everyone.
Jn 14:23 1Jn 5:3 Gal 1: 10
We believe that since we have put our faith in the Lord Jesus and have been united with Him in His death through baptism, we will also be united with Him in His resurrection. Since we died with Him we will also live with Him. Through Him we have eternal life.
Ro 6:4-8 Jn: 5:24
To the only God our Saviour be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore. Amen! Jude :25
