declaration-of-faith

We believe:

  • In the verbal inspiration of the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16)
  • In one God eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Ghost (Matthew 3:15-17;28:19)
  • That Jesus Christ is the only begotten son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary (John 1:13-14; Luke 1:30-5)
  • That Jesus Christ was crucified, buried and raised from the dead, that He ascended to Heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the intercessor (Romans 8:34)
  • That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded by God for all and is necessary for the forgiveness of sin (Romans 3:24; Mark 1:15)
  • That justification, regeneration and the New Birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ (Romans 5:1; Titus 3:5-7; 1 John 3:9)
  • In sanctification subsequent to the New Birth, through faith in the blood of Christ, through the Word of God and by the Holy Spirit (Romans 5:2)
  • Holiness to be God’s standard of living for His people (1 Thessalonians 4:7; Hebrews 12:14)
  • In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart (Luke 24:49, 53; Acts 1:4-8)
  • In water baptism by immersion, and that all who repent should be baptised in the name of the Father, Son and of the Holy Ghost (John 3:22-3)
  • That divine healing is provided for all in the atonement (Isaiah 53:4; 1 Peter 2:24)
  • In the Lord’s Supper and the washing of the Saints feet (Corinthians 11:23-6; John 13:4-17)
  • In the pre-millennial second coming of Jesus Christ, to reign on the earth a thousand years (1 Thessalonians 4:15-17; Revelation 5:10, 19:11-21, 20:4-6)
  • In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked (Revelation 20:5-6; 1 John 5:11-13; Revelation 20:10-15, 21:8)
