We believe that the Bible (the Old and New Testament) is the very Word of God, verbally inspired in all parts and therefore wholly without error, as originally given of God. It is the final and supreme authority for life and godliness.

(Matt. 5:18; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21).

We believe in the One Triune God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is personal, spirit, and sovereign; perfect, infinite and eternal in His being, self-existent, holy, loving, completely wise and all-powerful; absolutely separate and above the world as it’s Creator and yet everywhere present in the world as the upholder of all things.

(Gen. 1:1; Psa. 90:2; Psa. 139:1-16; John 4:24; Col. 1:15-17).

We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is eternal and was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born a man by the virgin birth, therefore to continue forever, as both true God and true man. He made full atonement for our sins through His vicarious suffering and death on the cross. He rose triumphantly from the grave on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is now at the right hand of God interceding on our behalf.

(Matt. 1:18-25; Isa. 53:4-6; Heb. 4:14-16).

We believe that the person of the Holy Spirit in the Godhead is the divine agent in creation, revelation, and redemption. In this age of grace He convicts the world of sin, regenerates those who believe, and indwells, baptises, seals, empowers, guides, teaches, and gives spiritual gifts to believers.

(Gen. 1:2; Acts 5:3-4; John 16:8-11; I Cor. 6:19, 12:13; Eph. 4:30). We believe that God eternally exists in three persons; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are of one essence and equal in power and glory, therefore, to be honoured and worshipped equally as true God. (Matt. 28:19; 2 Cor. 13:14; Deut. 6, John4:24.)

We believe in the existence of angels, a higher order of created spiritual beings, superior to man. They were active in the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ and presently minister to believers.

(Matt.4:11, Luke 1:28-35, Acts 1:10-11, Hebrews 1:13-14)

We believe that Satan is a real, supernatural personality, a fallen angel of great power, cunning, and wickedness. He and his demons are the enemies of God and of all good, seeking the destruction of Christ and the eternal ruin of every person. However, Satan and all his demons have been defeated by Christ’s death and are doomed to be cast into the lake of fire.

(Mark 1:13; John 13:2; Col. 2:15; Rev. 20:10).

We believe that man, consisting of body, soul and spirit was directly created by God in the divine image. Man is not an animal, but is created higher and above animal life; created with dignity to worship, serve and represent God.

(Gen. 1:26-27, 1Thess 5:23, Heb. 4:12)

We believe that man was originally created good, but when tempted by Satan, he disobeyed God’s command and became a sinful creature, incurring both physical and spiritual death. As a result all members of the human race are born in sin and are sinners by nature and practice.

(Gen. 2:15-17, 3:1-6; Rom. 1:19-32, 3:23, 5:12).

We believe that salvation is a gift of God’s grace, freely offered to us on the basis of Christ’s substitutionary death on the cross for sin. It is received by faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ and is in no way obtained by human effort. This salvation results in eternal life, a new nature, right standing before God, sonship in the family of God, and provision for sanctification and victory over the power of sin.

(John 1:12-13, 3:3-8; Rom. 3:24; Gal. 3:26, 5:22-23; Eph. 2:8-9).

We believe that every person will be physically raised from the dead: the saved to life everlasting and the unsaved to eternal condemnation

(John 5:28, 29, Rev.20:11-15)

We believe in the one true church, the body and bride of Christ, which He began to build on the day of Pentecost and will complete at His second coming, and into which all regenerated believers of this age are baptized by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the local visible church is composed of baptized believers in Christ, voluntarily joined together and meeting at stated times to worship, fellowship, observe ordinances, and when necessary, administer and accept discipline. We believe in the autonomy of the local church.

(Matt. 16:18, 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; 1 Cor. 12:13; Heb. 10:25).

There are two Christian ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism by immersion signifies that the believer has died with Christ, has been buried with Him and has risen to walk in newness of life with Him. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial feast at which believers worship by remembering the Lord and show forth His death until He comes again. In accordance with the early church, the Lord’s Supper should be celebrated every Lord’s day.

(Acts 20:7)

Baptism does not make us a Christian or bring forgiveness of sins. However” the New Testament does not envisage Christians who are not baptised by immersion.” (F.F. Bruce) We consider it to be the responsibility and privilege of every believer to participate in this ordinance in obedience to the Lord’s command.

(Acts 2:41, Matt. 28:19)

The Lord’s Supper is also known as the “Breaking of Bread”. The Lord’s supper is a memorial feast at which believer’s remember, worship and show forth His death until He (Christ) comes again. In accordance with the early church, the Lord’s supper should be celebrated every Sunday, which is the Lord’s day, also known as the first day of the week. (Acts 20:7, 1Cor.16:1) This memorial feast involves bread (symbolising the body of Christ) and wine (symbolising the blood of Christ) of which each person who is saved and walking in fellowship with the Lord can partake. This meeting or get together is commanded by the Lord. (“Do this” 1 Cor.11:24-25) so we do everything within our power to make it to this remembrance meeting.
We believe in the personal, visible and imminent return of Christ to the air and the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ in glory, to reign on the earth for 1,000 years.

(Matt. 24:21-31; John 14:3; Acts 1:11; 1 Thess. 4:13-17; Rev. 19:11-16, 20:1-15).

We believe that believers will stand at the judgment seat of Christ to be assessed for their life and service on earth, and so rewarded. Unbelievers will be judged according to their works at the Great White Throne and subsequently cast into the lake of fire where they will consciously suffer forever.

(1 Cor. 3:11-15; 2 Cor. 5:10; Rev. 20:11-15, 22:12).
