What We Believe

The beliefs we share

The Bible is God’s written revelation to man. It is the inspired Word of God and our authority for our faith, worship, and conduct. 2 Timothy 3:16-17

There is one living and true God, revealed in the Bible as a Trinity; the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who have the same nature, attributes, and perfection. Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14

God the Father is the Creator of all things. He is the absolute and all-powerful ruler of the universe. Psalm 103:19

Jesus was God revealed to us as a man; He is equal with God; conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; His purpose is to reveal God and redeem us. John 10:30; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:35; Philippines 2:5-8

The Holy Spirit is a divine Person who indwells all Christians and is always present to testify of Christ and empower them for service. John 14:6; 1 Corinthians 12:13

Man was created free of sin with a rational nature and that in Adam’s sin of disobedience to God’s will, sin entered into the world and the result of sin led to death and separation from God. Genesis 2:16-17; Romans 5:12

Jesus Christ became the sinner’s substitute and mediator and died as a sacrifice for the sin of the world. Matthew 28:19; 2 Corinthians 13:14

The Lord Jesus Christ rose physically and literally from the dead and ascended in His glorified body to the right hand of God. Mark 16:18; Acts 1:3-9

He will come again to take His people, the church, to be with Himself, and will return with His church in glory to establish His millennial kingdom on earth. 1 Thessalonians 4:14-17; Revelations 20

The church is made up of all those who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as Saviour. He is the church’s Head and its Supreme Authority. All believers live to serve God and know His presence. They can approach God directly through prayer. Acts 2:47; Colossians 1:18; 1 Peter 2:9; Hebrews 10:19-22

Practices we adhere to

On becoming a Christian and committing their life in faith to Christ Jesus, a Christian should be baptised as a public statement of their faith. Baptism by immersion shows that they are made new in Christ, sharing in His death and now given new life in Him. Acts 8:36; Romans 6:4Colossians 2:12

Christians should remember the Lord, especially His death, burial and resurrection and their relevance, and do this by joining in the Lord’s Supper or communion, sharing in the bread and wine. Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; 1 Peter 2:9; Hebrews 10:19-22

Christians are to meet together forming a local church. It will function with the leading of the Holy Spirit for worship, prayer, teaching and fellowship. They will seek to do everything to the glory of God. The local church is to be guided by elders, and membership is open to all Christians who share these beliefs and seek to live by them. They will seek to share with others the good news of salvation through Jesus Christ. Matthew 18:20; Acts 2:42; 1 Peter 5:1-3; Matthew 28:18-20
