What we believe

What we believe about God and the Bible is listed below.  For a full Statement of Faith and more details on doctrinal beliefs, please contact the church and we will send it to you.

We believe…

  1. the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is the all-sufficient and final authority for our faith and practice.
  2. in one God, eternally existing in one essence, yet three Persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  3. that Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man, was born of the virgin Mary.
  4. the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment; and that He ministers to the believer.
  5. in the reality of angels, both good angels who serve God and evil angels who serve their leader, Satan.
  6. the Genesis account of God’s creation of the universe out of nothing by His spoken Word and His creation of mankind.
  7. all people are sinners by nature and by choice and are therefore spiritually dead and in need of a Saviour.
  8. salvation is wholly the work of God, and that it is by grace through faith in the work of Christ alone, resulting in right standing before God.
  9. the church is the body of Christ, consisting of believers who meet locally for worship, growth and service to God.
  10. in the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ and His ascension into heaven, and that He will one day return to catch away His Church and bring His kingdom to completion.
  11. all people will face final judgment: believers to reward in heaven and unbelievers to eternal punishment in hell.
