Beliefs

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be God’s Revelation to mankind. That it is the complete and infallible Word of God as originally written. The Bible is our road map for life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21

God

We believe in the one true and living God who is the creator of the universe, including man. God is Perfect, infinite, eternal, all knowing and coexists in three distinct persons; namely the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; John 4:21

Mankind

We believe that every human being was created in the image of God. Through personal choices of unbelief and disobedience to God all people have become sinful in nature and commit sin. Sin separates people from God and His holiness. Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:20; Jeremiah 13:23; John 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4

Salvation

We believe that because of sin we need a Saviour. That salvation is the free gift of God’s grace to sinful man. This gift of eternal salvation is given by God to everyone who trusts in Jesus Christ alone for their salvation. Salvation is the free gift of God and cannot be earned through any merit or good deeds of our own. Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8,9; Titus 3:5

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus is the eternal Son of God; second person of the trinity, equal with God, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life and died on the cross for man’s salvation from sin. He rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, sits at the right hand of the Father and intercedes for us. Jesus will soon return to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. John 1:1-5; Hebrews 4:14,15; 1 Corinthians 15:3,4; Acts 1:9-11

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity. He convicts people of sin and generates new life; the life of God to those who trust in Christ as their Saviour. The Holy Spirit indwells, empowers, guides, teaches and gives spiritual gifts to believers. Genesis 1:2; John 16:8-11; Acts 5:3-4; Ephesians 4:30

Eternity

We believe that we are created eternal beings, having an eternal soul. John 11:25,26

The Church

We believe that the church of God is the fellowship of true believers in Christ; that the church was born on the day of Pentecost and that the church has been commissioned by God to proclaim the good news of Jesus to all people and nations of the world. Matthew 28:18; Acts 2

Marriage

We believe that marriage was instituted by God; that marriage is the sacred union of one man to one woman and that God is not pleased with divorce. Genesis 2:23-25; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-33; Malachi 2:16
