ARTICLES OF FAITH

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.


THE TRINITY

We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons Father, Son and Holy Spirit and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.


THE SAVIOUR

We believe in the true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His real and complete humanity, in His sinless life, in His authoritative teaching, in His substitutionary and atoning sacrifice through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His heavenly intercession and in His second advent to receive His Church.


THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe in the deity of the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father and the Son and the necessity of His work in conviction of sin, repentance, regeneration and sanctification.   We believe that every true Christian  received the Holy Spirit when they were born again and it is impossible to be born again and not have the Holy Spirit

Romans 8:9

    But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.

 

THE GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT

We are continuists and as such believe all the gift will be in existence until the second coming of Christ. This is not a second work of grace but the results of the Holy Spirit, which the believer received at salvation, working in a person and manifesting the gifts as He wills.


MANKIND

We believe in the universal sinfulness of all men since the Fall, rendering man subject to God's wrath and condemnation.


SALVATION

We believe in the necessity for salvation of the repentance towards God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by which the sinner is pardoned and accepted as righteous in God's sight. This justification is imputed by the grace of God because of the atoning work of Christ, is received by faith alone and is evidenced by the Fruit of the Spirit and a holy life.

 

Eternal Security

We believe in the doctrine of "eternal security."

The doctrine of eternal security in theological language is referred to as the "perseverance of the saints." In common expression it is referred to as "once saved, always saved" or "once a Christian, always a Christian

He who believes has eternal life (John 6:47).... Every one who looks to the Son and believes in him shall have eternal life and I will raise him up at the last day (John 6:40).... I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish: no one can snatch them out of my hand (John 10:28) ....There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).... Those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son (Romans 8:29).... [Nothing] will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 8:39).... [Christ] will keep you strong to the end (1 Corinthians 1:8).... God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear (1 Corinthian 10:13).... He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6).... We have passed from death to life (1 John 3:14).

 

 THE CHURCH

We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.


THE MINISTRY

We believe in the ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, and in the present operation of the manifold Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament.

(Ps some seem to have trouble understanding this statement so let me make it clear.  We are continuist by that I mean we believe that all the gifts including the five-fold ministry have not ceased).


THE ORDINANCES

We believe in the baptism of believers by immersion in water in obedience to the command of Christ and in the commemoration of Christ's death by the observance of the Lord's Supper until His return.


THE COMMISSION

We believe that the gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.


THE COMING KING

We believe in the personal, physical and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to reign in power and glory.


THE FUTURE STATE

We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgement of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked.
