We Believe

What We Believe

We believe in one eternal God, self-existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; distinguishable but indivisible.

(Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14)

We believe that Jesus is the Christ, the only Saviour of humanity; who, fully God, became fully man through conception by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. His sinless life made possible His death as perfect atonement for all humanity.

(John 1:14-18; Luke 1:26-35; Isaiah 7:14, 9:6)

We believe that God is not willing that any person should be separated from Him, but everyone – through repentance and faith in who Jesus is and what Jesus did on the cross – may obtain eternal life by confessing that conviction with their mouth, and believing in their heart. By means of God’s grace through Jesus, we have right-standing with God.

(Titus 3:4-7; Ephesians 2:8-9; Romans 5:8-11; Romans 10:8-13)

We believe in the reality of the spiritual realm – angels and demons, heaven and hell, the existence of the devil, and God’s judgment destining him and his fallen angels to eternal consignment in the lake of fire. We believe in the eternal life of believers and eternal separation from God for unbelievers.

(Matthew 25:41; Revelation 20:14-15; John 5:24; John 3:16,36; Mark 9:43-48; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9; Revelation 20:10-15)

We believe that water baptism by immersion is an outward act of obedience by each individual who chooses to acknowledge Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour.

(Matthew 28:19; Acts 2:34-36, 19:1-6)

We believe that God wants to use believers today in the operation of the gifts and ministries of the Holy Spirit. We believe that God still does miracles and uses believers to bring healing and deliverance in the name of Jesus, as part of bringing the reality of God to our world, as practiced in the early Church.

(Acts 4:30; Romans 8:11; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14; Mark 16:17; Ephesians 4)

We believe God’s intention for marriage is between one man and one woman, for life, and that all sex is reserved for marriage, as God intended it.

(Genesis 1:27; Genesis 2:24; Matthew 19:4-6; Ephesians 5:22-23; Mark 10:1-9; 1 Corinthians 7:1-4; Proverbs 5:15-19; 1 Corinthians 6:9; Galatians 5:16)

We believe that God created the world and everything in it as recorded in Genesis 1 & 2. We believe that God created every individual and gave every human being a free will, and in using the free will that God gave humanity, we, by our disobedience and sinful nature, have total spiritual disconnection and are completely unable to attain to right-standing with God on our own merit.

(Romans 5:12,18-19)

We believe that Jesus Christ gave up His life on the cross, was buried and rose again the third day, and personally appeared to His disciples. He ascended to heaven and He will come again a second time for His Church.

(1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25; John 14:2-3; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God and is the sole and final authority for all matters of faith and conduct.

(2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:19-21; 1 Corinthians 2:13)

We believe that God wants us to live a life based on the finished work of Jesus, from which our security in salvation produces a desire to obey God, a willingness to fear God more than man, and a passion to express true Christian faith through genuine obedience to God’s word.

(Ephesians 5:18; 2 Corinthians 6:14, 7:1)

We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as a distinct experience given by God. We recognise speaking in an unknown language as a significant evidence of this baptism, and that speaking “in tongues” is a God-given prayer language available to every believer who is baptised in the Holy Spirit.

(Acts 2:1-4, 8:14-17, 10:44-45; Galatians 3:14; Jude 1:20)

We believe all human life is a gift from God and that life is sacred from the moment of conception. Each person has a divinely ordained purpose, irrespective of the circumstance of conception or birth, and we uphold and honour the sanctity of human life from this same moment.

(Genesis 1:28; Psalms 139:13-16; Jeremiah 1:5; Luke 1:15)

We believe that because of our sinful nature and the brokenness in our world, we all struggle with varying issues, but the heart of God is to bring forgiveness and restoration to those who seek it. Through grace and truth, personal healing and reconciliation to God are available to all.

(Romans 6,7,8; Luke 4:18; Acts 3:19-21; Galatians 6:1; Psalm 23:3; Jeremiah 29:11-14; John 1:14,17; Hebrews 4:16; John 8:31-32; 2 Corinthians 12:8-9)
