Statement of Faith

The sole basis of our beliefs is the Bible, God's infallible written Word, the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments

The Bible
It is the verbally inspired Word of God; it is Truth without error; and it is the only and final revelation of God to man. The King James Bible is the inerrant Word of God in the English language. II Tim. 3:16,17; Ps. 119:160; Romans 3:4; Ps 12:6,7; Rev. 22:18,19

The Trinity
There is one living and true God eternally existing in three Persons: The Father, Son and Holy Spirit. II Cor. 13:14; Matt. 28:19: Rom 1:20; Gen. 1:26, 3:22; 11:7; 1 Jn. 5:7; Jn 10:30

The Father
He is an infinite and personal Spirit who is perfect in every attribute and is worthy of all honour and worship; He concerns Himself mercifully with man and saves all who come unto Him through Jesus Christ. Eph. 4:6; Rev. 4:11

The Lord Jesus Christ
He is both the Son of God and God the Son; He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary, a perfect Godly man; He was crucified, buried, resurrected and has ascended bodily to the Father's right hand until He returns to the earth. John 1.1,14; Matt. 1.18-25; Mark 16.6,9 5

The Holy Spirit
He convinces the world of sin, of righteousness and judgment; He regenerates, indwells, comforts, guides and empowers those who believe in Jesus Christ. Matt. 28:19; John 16:7-11; John 14:16-17; Gal. 4:6 Acts 1:8; Eph. 1:13; 4:30

The Devil
He once enjoyed heavenly honours but through pride and ambition to be as the Almighty, fell from his position; he is the arch enemy of God, the father of lies, the tempter, the author of false religions, the unholy god of this world system. II Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 20:10

The Creation
Everything that exists was created and made by God according to the Genesis account; and that all life brings forth after its kind. Gen. 1:1; Col. 1:16,17; Heb. 11:3

The Fall of Man
By voluntary transgression, man fell from his innocent condition in the Garden of Eden; henceforth all men are born with Adam's sinful nature; therefore, all men are sinners by nature and by choice. Rom. 3:10-13; 5.12; Gal. 3:22

The Atonement of Sin
Only God could make atonement and forgive sin; thus Jesus took upon Himself our sins and died for them upon the cross; He paid the full penalty demanded by justice so that we might be freely forgiven. II Cor. 5:21; I Peter 3:18; Heb. 7:25

The Salvation of Sinners
God grants the free gift of salvation to all who truly repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ; it is apart from works, religions, education, parents and philosophy; that nothing prevents sinners from being saved except their rejection of God's only way. Act. 13:39; Eph. 1.13,14; John 1:12

The Security of The Believer
A person is eternally secure in Christ from the moment of salvation; the believer's standing before God is perfect and changeless; and that keeping power is based on the finished work of Christ. I Peter 1.5; John 10:27-30; I John 5.12,13

The Two Natures of the Believers
Every saved person has two natures, the old and the new; the old nature is the flesh and the new nature is the Spirit; the first is sinful and the latter is perfect; and that claims to eradication of sin in the old nature in this life is unscriptural. Gal. 5.16-26; Eph. 4:22-24; Rom. 6:13

The Believers Life
He is to live according to the Word of God at any cost; he is to deny ungodliness and worldly lust and to live soberly, righteously and godly; thus a life that glorifies God in word and deed and points others to Christ. Titus 2.11-14; Rom. 12:1,2; Matt. 5:14-16

The New Testament Church
This is an organized assembly of baptized believers associated by a covenant of faith whose only authority in faith and practice is the Word of God; it is to be actively engaged in preaching the Gospel and sending missionaries; observing the Scriptural ordinances; teaching believers how to live and providing fellowship; the church is to be self-governing and free from denominational or political control. Matt. 28:19,20; I Tim. 3:15; Matt. 18:15-18

The Ordinances
The ordinances of the New Testament church are two, namely, baptism and the Lord's Supper. They speak of Christ and the believer's relationship to Him. In the act of baptism (meaning immersion) the believer identifies himself with the burial and resurrection of Christ and thus declares his faith in the finished work of the Gospel. Rom. 6:3-5. In the act of the Lord's Supper, the believer shows forth the death and coming again of Christ; this must be accompanied by self examination. I Cor. 11:23-28

The Freeness of Salvation
We believe that the blessings, of salvation are made free to all by the Gospel; that it is the immediate duty of all to accept them by a cordial, penitent, and obedient faith; and that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner on earth but his own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel, which rejection involves him in an aggravated condemnation. Isaiah 55:1,2,6,7; Matthew 11:28; John 3:16-19,36; 5:40;37; Romans 10:13; 16:25,26 Revelation 22: 17

We believe the Scriptures teach that the next event on God's prophetic calendar will be the imminent return of Christ and the rapture of all church-age believers. Immediately following this will be the Judgment Seat of Christ in Heaven where believers will be judged to determine the granting or losing of rewards for service while on earth after they were saved. Following this will be the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. During this time of Heavenly activities, there will be on the earth the seven years duration of the Great Tribulation. This will mark God's dealings with Israel as a nation and also with unregenerate mankind who have refused Jesus through the personages of the Anti-Christ, the beast, and the false prophet. Although the Holy Spirit is in the world during this time, His restraining power has been removed. It is also during this seven year period on earth that the Anti-Christ, beast, and false prophet will have their rise and destruction. All of this will be consummated at the Battle of Armageddon which will take place at Christ's Revelation, when He returns with His Bride to set up His millennial reign. Christ will then rule for a thousand years with a rod of iron during which time there will be peace, prosperity, and removal of the curse on the earth. Also during this time Satan will be bound for the 1,000 years in the bottomless pit, after which he will be loosed for a little season to gather to himself all of the apostates of the world, to do battle against the Lord for the last time. Satan and his host will be defeated and cast into the lake of fire. Following this will be the resurrection of the unrighteous dead and a judgment on the basis of their works. All will be cast into the lake of fire. Following this will be the creation of the new heavens and the new earth. Corinthians 15.51-58; I Thessalonians 4.13-18; II Corinthians 5.10; I Corinthians 3.13-15; Revelation 19.7; II Thessalonians 2.7; Revelation 19.11-20; Isaiah 11.1-9; Revelation 2.27; Revelation 20.1-3,7-10,11-15; Revelation 21,22
