Our Beliefs

“Only a real risk tests the reality of a belief.” ― C.S. Lewis

Our Beliefs

We believe in the one living and true God, perfect, infinite and eternal, existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; John 10:30; John 15:26; II Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:1-5).

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, in His perfect humanity, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His ascension to heaven, and His personal triumphant return (Matthew 16:16; Luke 1:31-33; I Peter 3:18; Luke 24:39; Acts 1:9-11).

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is one with the Father and the Son, and who by the word and various other means, convicts us of our sinfulness, and constantly points us to Jesus Christ, the Saviour of all mankind. It is His power through us and the fruit of the Spirit and the spiritual gifts that enable us to live lives of victory, minister in the church body, and be effective witnesses (John 14:16, 15:26, 16:7-14; Acts 1:8; Galatians 5:22-23; I Corinthians 12,13, and 14:1-25).

We believe that the Bible was given by divine inspiration and is the infallible word of God. It constitutes the only perfect guide and final authority of all matters of Christian faith and conduct (II Timothy 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; I Thessalonians 2:13).

We believe in the immortality of the soul, the resurrection of the dead, and divine judgment (I Corinthians 15:22-24; John 5:28-29; II Corinthians 5:10; Revelation 20:12-15; John 3:36).

We believe in the divine power of prayer. We believe in prayer as an avenue of fellowship and communion with God and as a desire to be in God’s will (Matthew 6:5-15; Mark 11:23-25; John 15:7; James 5:16b; I John 5:14-15; I Timothy 2:1-8).

We believe that Satan exists and is the enemy of God and all mankind. He seeks to lead believers away from God and unbelievers into eternal damnation. Christians, through the power of the Holy Spirit, must make every effort to avoid his influence on their lives (Matthew 4:1-14; I Peter 5:8; James 4:7; II Corinthians 2:10, 11; Isaiah 14:12-15).

We believe that human beings are sinful and in need of redemption. Salvation from sin is possible by the grace of God, through faith in Christ Jesus. This process includes: turning from of sin, trusting in Christ, and committing the full and complete control of life to Christ. Jesus refers to this as the new birth (John 3:16; Acts 10:43; Romans 12:1,2; I John 1:9).

We believe in the following worship practices:

i. Baptism is commanded and ordained by God and is to be administered upon personal desire and confession of faith (Acts 2:38; Matthew 28:19; Galatians 3:27; Mark 16:16).

ii. Communion/the Lord’s Supper is observed as a memorial of His atoning sacrifice (Matthew 26:26-29; I Corinthians 11:23-25).

We believe in the practice of scriptural church discipline (Matthew 18:15-18; Titus 3:10; Galatians 6:1).

We believe that human life is sacred (Exodus 20:13; Psalm 139:13-16).
