Statement of Faith

 

We believe in the sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, redemption and final judgement.

 

We believe in the divine inspiration of the Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

 

We believe that human beings are made in the image of God, are created to love, serve, worship and enjoy God and are entrusted with stewardship of God’s creation.

 

We believe in the universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity, making us subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

 

We believe in the sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as our representative and substitute as being the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin, and from its eternal consequences.

 

We believe in the justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.

 

We believe in the illuminating, regenerating, indwelling, sanctifying and empowering work of God the Holy Spirit.

 

We believe in the priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head, committed by His command to the proclamation and demonstration of the Gospel throughout the world.

 

We believe in the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
