About Us - What We Believe
1. The Bible
We believe the Bible (excluding the Apocrypha) to be the scriptures of truth - the infallible word of God, fully inspired; the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe in the total depravity of man - therefore, because of that depravity he cannot save himself. Only an act of divine mercy and grace can save him. This comes from the Lord Jesus Christ alone.
3. The Blood of Christ
We believe in the efficacy and the power of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus Christ to redeem and cleanse a man from his sins. This means that all the just demands of a Holy God have been satisfied because of the 'Shed Blood', and no other remedy can cleanse a person from their sin 'Nothing but the Blood of Jesus'.
4. The Godhead
We believe in the 'Trinity and Unity of the Godhead'. Almighty God exists in three persons - The Father, The Son and The Holy Ghost
5. The Deity of Christ
We believe in the pre-existence of the Lord Jesus Christ in eternity as 'The Son of God who became the Son of Man'.
6. The Person of Christ
We believe in His miraculous virgin birth conceived of the Holy Ghost. We believe in His impeccable sinless life 'living for us and keeping for us the Law of God we could not keep'. We believe in His Substitutional and Atoning Death at Calvary, paying in full the price God demanded for sin. He is - The Lamb of God that taketh away the Sin of the World. We believe in His Bodily Resurrection - rising from the grave on the third day according to the scriptures, and 'because He lives, we shall live also'. We believe in 'His Beautiful High Priestly Ministry' as He stands in His Glorified body in the presence of God making intercession for us. He is our mediator between God and man. We believe in His 'Personal' Second Coming to resurrect the righteous dead to translate the living church, to set up His Glorious and everlasting Kingdom.
7. The Future State
We believe in the punishment and the judgement of the ungodly in the lake of fire, which the Lord Jesus Himself mentions several times as 'Hell Fire'. This is the fate of those who reject Christ. That is why, knowing the terror of the Lord - we persuade men! Therefore we believe in the eternal conscious bliss of the redeemed and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
8. The Church
We believe the Church of Jesus Christ is made up of men women and children from every nation under heaven who have experienced the New Birth and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
9. The Holy Spirit
We believe in the sovereignty and work or God the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Baptism and fullness of the Holy Ghost, in His gifts and His graces right to this present day. We believe in divine healing according to the scriptures and that the miraculous gifts recorded in the New Testament have never been taken out of the Church.
10. The Ordinances of the Church
We believe in both The Lord's Supper and Believers Baptism by Full Immersion in Water.
