                   STATEMENT OF FAITH

 

                                             

                                                          We believe that:

1. The Bible  although it was written by men, they were directed by the Holy Spirit. It is the infallible source of truth.

2. The Godhead is composed of three persons - God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, who are united to form the One True God.

3. Man, (Adam and Eve) were created by God but broke their relationship with Him by wilful disobedience of His commands (Sin). Since then all people have been sinners.

 

4. The eternal Son of God came into this world by a virgin (Mary) by the power of the Holy Spirit, and lived a totally sinless life.

 

5. He was called Jesus (Saviour) because He came to save sinners by His sacrificial death by crucifixion. After His burial He rose from the dead and returned to Heaven 40 days later.

 

6. All those who genuinely repent of their sin and place their faith (trust) in the work of Christ on the cross and His subsequent resurrection receive the gift of everlasting life.

 

7. At the same time each believer receives the gift of the Holy Spirit within them and their relationship with God is restored through new spiritual birth.

 

8. All believers are expected to be baptised by immersion to symbolise their identification with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

 

9. Jesus will return soon and take all true Believers (dead and alive) to be with Him in Heaven but those who do not believe will ultimately suffer everlasting punishment in the lake of fire with the Devil and his angels.
