What we believe

We believe in one God, eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God alone is Creator, Preserver and Ruler of all things visible and invisible.

We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, was born of the virgin Mary, was fully God and fully human existing in one person and was without sin. We believe in His substitutionary sacrifice, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His present life as Lord of all, High Priest and Advocate, and His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells all believers, empowers them for godly living, and equips them for service and witness.

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are inspired by God, without error in the original documents, completely trustworthy and the only supreme authority in all matters of Christian faith and practice.

We believe that each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost; that salvation is possible only through the shed blood of Jesus Christ and is received on the basis of faith alone apart from works and is characterized by regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

We believe that the one, universal Church is the body of Christ, composed of all true believers.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved and the everlasting punishment of the lost.
