Statement of faith

SEVEN STATEMENTS OF FAITH

1. We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible, authoritative word of God. (2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12)

2. We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. (1 Peter 1:2, Gen 1:26)

3. We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His completed work at Calvary, His substitutional and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.(Hebrews 1:3)

4. We believe that for the salvation of the lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is essential to the working out of salvation, and that this salvation is received through faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and not as a result of works that any should boast.(2 Thessalonians 2:13, Ephesians 2:8-9, Galatians 2:16)

5. We believe in the present day ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to be transformed from glory to glory, to live a godly life and to perform good works, with our end purpose to be transformed into the very image and likeness of Jesus Christ.(John 14:26, Titus 3:5, 2Cor 3:18)

6) We believe that God is love and He has sent His Son in the likeness of His love to form us into the same image of the Fathers love that we too, from the life of His love, die to self that His love may live and abound, resulting in spiritual transformation and building of His kingdom on earth. The greatest testimony on earth of Jesus Christ will be that the laws of God will by nature be established in them that know not the law, but love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength and love their neighbor as themselves.(Matthew 22:37-40, Romans 2:14, Galatians 5:14, James 2:8, Romans 8:32, 1 John 4:20)

7) We believe in the unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ, that in Jesus Christ He has called us to be one relationally in His love. It is only here that we, as a body of believers, as a diverse living organism, through the Holy Spirit can truly express Jesus Christ in His fulness to extend His kingdom on earth. (John 13:34, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Ephesians 4:13-16)
