Statement of Faith

As Christians we believe and accept:

  1. The revelation of the true and only God given in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and confess the historic faith of the Gospel which it contains. These assert those doctrines that are crucial to the understanding of the faith and which should result in mutual love, practical Christian service and concern for the lost and needy.
  2. The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation and final judgement.
  3. The divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters concerning faith and conduct.
  4. The virgin birth of Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, begotten by His will through the Holy Spirit.
  5. The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  6. The substitutionary sacrifice of the Incarnate Son of God, Jesus Christ on a cross, as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from guilt and the power of sin and from its eternal consequences.
  7. The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ crucified and risen from the dead.
  8. The illumination, regeneration, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
  9. The priesthood of all believers, who together form the universal church, the Body of which Jesus Christ is the Head and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world.
  10. The relevant expression of the Body of Christ in and through the local church.
  11. The expectation of the personal, visible return of Jesus Christ in power and glory and the ascension into glory with Christ of all believers.
  12. The resurrection of the dead and eternal life granted to all that trust and believe in Jesus Christ.
