WHAT WE BELIEVE

Core Beliefs

God

We believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible. He is the Source and Originator of all truth, beauty, holiness and goodness.

The Bible

We believe the 66 books, which compose the canon of Holy Scripture, were written by men who were inspired by God for that purpose. The Bible is infallible and without error. It reveals God’s character, His salvation for mankind, the principles by which God directs men to live, and is the sole authority of our faith and practice.

Mankind

We believe God created mankind, both male and female, in His perfect image. From Adam, mankind fell into sin, resulting in a sinful nature, total depraved and utterly helpless apart from the grace of God.

Salvation

We believe salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone and is a redemptive process wholly of God, in which believers participate solely on the basis of His grace through their faith in Jesus.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit permanently indwells all believers, fulfilling His regenerating work of the new birth unto eternal life.

The Gospel

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the “good news” we proclaim. It answers the brokenness caused by sin with unlimited love, complete forgiveness and restoration to the Father. By this Gospel we are born into a new spiritual life, identified with Christ, empowered by the Holy Spirit and called to missional living for the glory of God.
