Statement of Faith

We believe God has revealed to all people His truth in the Bible and that the original manuscripts were inspired and without error. We believe the Bible is the authority in all matters of faith and practice.

We believe there is one God, eternally existing in Three Persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe this triune God created everything both physical and spiritual.

We believe God created human beings (male and female) in His own image and likeness and therefore with unique intrinsic worth from conception to natural death.

We believe the first humans (Adam and Eve) were created with a perfect relationship with their Creator and were appointed stewards of God’s creation. We believe they sinned by choosing to disobey God. Adam’s rebellion rendered all people sinful and incapable of achieving God’s standards – thereby bringing death into the human race.

We believe that this judgment of God was remedied through Jesus Christ.

We believe that He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary, thus able to live a sinless life and be the perfect sacrifice for sin.

We believe that Jesus was fully God and fully human.

We believe that personal redemption has been accomplished solely by His shed blood, substitutionary death, resurrection, and ascension. We believe salvation is by God’s grace alone, through faith in Jesus Christ.

We believe all truth is God’s truth. We believe that truth is revealed in the God of the Bible and that He is real and that today, He is inviting people to put their lives under His control, so that He can give them abundant life here and eternal life with Him. We believe that Jesus is coming again and we look forward to that day when all things will be redeemed.

We believe that true followers (disciples) should live for the glory of God and the well-being of others and that their conduct should be a testimony of biblical values before the world.

We believe that the cost of discipleship is high. We believe in a lifestyle of holiness and we believe through the power of Jesus and His resurrection we can be freed from all scripturally named personal and moral sin.

We believe the Bible teaches that marriage and family are the basic unity of society and our purpose reflects that belief. We believe that marriage refers to the covenant relationship between one born man and one born woman as instituted by God – to the exclusion of all others.

We believe that every person is directly responsible to God. We believe in the authority of government. In matters of disagreement between the Bible and government, we believe we must obey God. We believe that we can best promote our purposes by co-operating with other likeminded ministries, provided that truth of scripture is not compromised.

We believe the statements above to be core truths. We desire to allow freedom of conviction on other matters (eg. Baptism, debt) provided they do not conflict with the Bible nor become an issue of division.
