The statements below are what we hold to be fundamental about our faith. If you are new in your faith or looking for more information, you may find some terms unfamiliar or ideas that seem daunting — don’t worry. The essential message is this: we are in need of salvation, and that can only be found in Jesus Christ.
Statement of Faith
“But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus” Ephesians 2:4-6.
We confess Jesus Christ as our Lord and saviour, and faith in Him to be the only way to, and the only requirement for, salvation. We offer fellowship to all in His name.
The Holy Bible
The Bible is the complete and inspired Word of God and the final authority in all matters of our faith and conduct as Christians (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:16-21).
The Lord Jesus Christ
This refers to the process of being “set apart,” or made holy, in which the Holy Spirit renews and regenerates our spirits so that we might be presentable to God and be prepared to do His work (John 14:16-17; John 17:15-19). When we are spiritually born again, we are at that moment made presentable to God by the blood of Jesus, and our salvation is secure (John 3:6; Hebrews 10:10). The practical effect of this sanctification is obedience to the Word of God in our lives so that, by the Spirit, we may lead a holy life and perform good works in His name (Luke 9:23; Philippians 2:13; Colossians 1:10-11).
What Happens at Death?
When Christ returns, those who have already died will be raised either to eternal life or to eternal condemnation (Revelation 20:11-15). Those of us still alive at that time will be called up in an instant to be with Him.
