STATEMENT OF FAITH

     
  BIBLE  
 
We believe The Holy Scripture to be Word of God. We believe that the 66 books  are inspired by God written by human authors who, using their own unique talents wrote His Word (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20–21). The Scriptures are complete in everything (Proverbs 30:5). The Scriptures are infallible and achieve the will of God(Isaiah 55:11, 2 Timothy 3:17).
 
  GOD  
 
We believe God is the eternal, Creator and Sustainer of all things (Genesis 1:1; Colossians 1:16–17). He is the one and only God (Isaiah 44:6). This one Godhead consists of three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Genesis 1:2; Deuteronomy 6:4–5; Matthew 3:16–17) and each member of the Trinity is fully God. God is holy (Isaiah 6:3), unchanging (Malachi 3:6), omniscient (Isaiah 46:10), omnipresent (Psalm 139:7–8), omnipotent (Job 42:2; Luke 1:37), just (Deuteronomy 32:4), gracious (Exodus 33:19), and loving (1 John 4:8).
 
 

A. FATHER

 
 

We believe God the Father is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, Glory and love. We believe that He is merciful, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all that turn to him through Jesus Christ (Matthew 23:9; Luke 10:21–22; John 3:16; John 6:27; Romans 1:7; 1 Timothy 1:1–2; 1 Timothy 2:5–6; 1 Peter 1:3; Revelation 1:6).

 
 

B. SON

 
 

We believe Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man, that He came in the flesh and was born of a virgin, and lived a sinless, miraculous life (John 8:46, 18:38b, 19:4, 21:25). He was crucified, died and rose from the dead three days later (1 Corinthians 15:4). He then ascended to Heaven sits at the right hand of the Father and He will return again to Judge the world (Acts 1:9–11; 1 Thessalonians 4:16; 2 Thessalonians 1:9–10; Revelation 1:7).

 
 

C. HOLY SPIRIT

 
 

We believe the Holy Spirit is fully God (Genesis 1:2; Acts 5:3–5. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7–11). He testifies of Jesus and to the truthfulness of the Gospel (Acts 1:8, John 15:26). The Holy Spirit gives gifts to each believer for the edification of the church and the proclamation of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 12:7, 14:22).

 
  MAN  
 
We believe God created man on the 6th day in His own image and likeness (Genesis 1:26–27). Man is dead in trespasses and sins, and apart from the grace of God cannot and will not seek after God (Jeremiah 13:23; John 6:44; Romans 3:10–18, 8:5–8; 1 Corinthians 2:14; Ephesians 2:1–3; Colossians 2:13).
 
  THE GOSPEL  
 
We believe that all have sinned and fell short of the Glory of God. We believe that God sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, paid the price for our sins. Jesus gave himself up in our place and on our behalf (Romans 3:25; 1 John 2:2). He was crucified, died and rose from the dead on the third day, victorious over sin and death (1 Corinthians 15:3–4, 17).
 
  SALVATION

 
 
We believe salvation is offered freely to all who receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His death and resurrection obtained eternal redemption for the believer (John 3:16).
