WE BELIEVE

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We believe in God the Father, the first person in the triune Godhead, believe in God the Son the Lord Jesus Christ, supernaturally conceived and born of the virgin Mary.  He was and is without sin, that in and through His death, burial and resurrection, we have redemption. We believe in God the Holy Spirit, the third person of the triune Godhead who proceeds from the Father and the Son, ever present and is active in revealing all things and active to convict and set apart the believer to holiness. He is totally loving, just and completely holy. 

​We believe the Bible is the Word of God and both the Old and New Testament are inspired by God. The Scriptures are the revelation of His heart, trustworthy and authoritative to instruct us in all things relating to life, conduct and our faith. 

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives resulting in both physical and spiritual death.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory over death, sin and Satan, to restore us into a right relationship with God and empower us for life.

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a new life in God we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives. Our eternal destination of either heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.​​ 

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit also enables us to use spiritual gifts, which includes speaking in tongues. The orderly operation of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as expressed individually and corporately are to be motivated by love for the encouragement and empowerment of the Church.

We believe that the Church is the Body of Christ in this present world and includes all who are born again. The mission of the church is to proclaim the Good News of Jesus. This includes the preaching to every nation, corporate worship, compassion to the poor and suffering and the equipping of all believers by spiritual leadership to bring the church to full maturity.   

 

We believe the two main ordinances of the Church are water baptism by full immersion and partaking in the Lord's Supper (Communion).

 

We believe in the growth of the individual Christian and that we belong to God, set apart for Him. Through a process of transformation, and a responsible and accountable lifestyle God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, make disciples of Jesus, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.

 

We believe that a born again Christian cannot be demon possessed. If the Son sets free you are truly free. In the New Testament Jesus and the disciples cast out demons for evangelical purposes verifying the authority of Christ and the start of the church age. We do not adhere to exorcisms or deliverance for born again Christians in the church body as the silence in the pastoral epistles speaks volumes, nor are there any detailed histories in the early church of any Christian ever being demon-possessed.  

 

We believe Jesus Christ will return and gather His people to Himself as He promised. There will be a final judgement for all humanity and that ultimately all will bow the knee to Jesus Christ for eternity and He will determine each person's eternal destiny.
