WE BELIEVE:

The Bible is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and practice.

The unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal, Self-­‐Existent “I AM”, who has also revealed Himself as One Being co-­‐existing in three Persons -­ Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

In the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Substitutionary Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection, Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His Premillennial Second Advent as the blessed hope set before all believers.

In the fall of man, who was created pure and upright, but fell by voluntary transgression.

In salvation through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from among the dead on the third day, and that through His Blood we have Redemption. This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

That all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptized by immersion in water.

In the baptism in the Holy Spirit, the initial evidence of which is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

In the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the Church today.

In holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God.

That deliverance from sickness, by Divine Healing is provided for in the Atonement.

That all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread.

In the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the everlasting conscious punishment of all whose names are not written in the Book of Life.
