Statement of Faith − Our Beliefs
We Believe That...
- there is only one true God and that He is three persons in one: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
(Dan.6 v 26; Matt 28 v 19; John 4 v 24; 2 Cor 3 v 17)
- the Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired word of God. It is the infallible rule of faith and practice, containing all guidance necessary to salvation.
(2 Peter 1 v 21; Romans 16 v 26; 2 Timothy 3 vv15-16)
- Jesus is the Son of God, truly God and truly man. He was born of a virgin and died on a cross in our place, for our sins, to make us right with God. He rose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven where He now intercedes for all who believe in Him. He will come again in person, in triumph, to reward His own.
(Phil. 2 vv 6-11; Matt. 1 v 23; Acts 1 v 11; Romans 8 v 34)

- all people are sinners by nature and choice and are therefore under condemnation: That God gives new birth by His Holy Spirit to all who repent of their sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord: That Jesus fills the seeking believer with the Holy Spirit empowering them for service: That the Holy Spirit lives in us to make us holy and Christ-like, the evidence of His presence and activity being in the fruit of Christian character.
(John 3 vv 3-5; Galatians 5 vv 22-23; Ephesians 5 v 18)
