Statement of Faith

WE BELIEVE that God is the eternal, omnipotent, and triune Being; Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; That this triune God created the Heavens and the earth, and all that in them is, visible and invisible; That He sustains, protects, and governs these with gracious regard for the welfare of man to the glory of His Name.

We believe that God, the Father, through the gift of His only begotten Son, provided redemption for man lost through the fall of Adam; That Christ, the Son was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary; That He was crucified, died, and was buried; That He rose again, ascended to the Father; and that he became the Saviour of the world through the merits of His atoning blood.

We believe that the Holy Ghost reproves the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment; and that He seals, empowers, comforts, and guides the believer.

We believe that the Holy Bible, the Old and the New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God, and that it is the final authority for faith and practice.

We believe that the work of Calvary is made effective to the believer through justification (forgiveness of committed sin),and the sanctification (heart cleansing and empowerment); and that the work of grace thus wrought in the heart will effect a transformation of life and practice.

We believe that the general ordinances, namely believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper, are enjoined in the Word of God and should be observed in church life and practice.

We believe that the Scripture teaches that Christians should not be conformed to this world; that they should demonstrate the spirit of Christian love; that, subject to a prior loyalty to the Word of God, it is their duty to be obedient to the government under which they live, and that through their testimony and conduct they should be constant and effective witness for their Lord.

We believe that the second coming of Christ is imminent and will be pre-millennial; that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust; that life eternal is the gift of the righteous, but that everlasting punishment is reserved for the wicked.

We believe that the supreme duty and mission of the Church during this dispensation is world-wide evangelization in obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ our Lord.
