We believe in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament in their original writings as fully inspired by God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.

We believe in one God eternally existing as Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, and is true God and true Man.

We believe in the diety, personality, ministry and abiding presence of the Holy Spirit in the believer.

We believe that humankind, male and female, was created in the image of God, with consequent dignity, delegated authority, and creation stewardship.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are justified and cleansed from sin.

Salvation is available to all, through the redemptive act of the Lord Jesus Christ, and is recieved through repentance, baptism and faith, apart from human effort.

We believe that all who recieve the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.

The Holy Spirit indwells, empowers, equips, comforts, and corrects each believer, who is thereby obligated and enabled to live a holy life, and to witness through fellowship, worship, prayer, evangelism, discipline and service.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His ascension into heaven, and His intercession on our behalf as High Priest.

We believe in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, when the Kingdom of God will be consummated.

We believe that the one true church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy Spirit. The local church on earth should take it’s character from that one true Church.

We believe that the new birth, including repentance, baptism and confession of Christ, is the prerequisite for church membership.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the supreme and only spiritual head of the Church Universal. As such, he appointed two sacraments – baptism and the Lord’s Supper to be observed as acts of obedience and perpetual witness of the Christian faith.

We believe that baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection. Baptism is done in the name of the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

The Lord’s Supper is the partaking of bread and wine as symbols of the broken body and shed blood of Jesus Christ.

We believe that salvation is not limited to the needs of individuals, but has implications for all of life. Therefore, Christian ministry and mission should address the needs of: individuals, familes, local communities, society as a whole and the entire created world.
