What We Believe

What we Believe

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be the revealed Word of God, fully and verbally inspired by God. We believe the Scriptures to be the inerrant, infallible Word of God, as found within the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation. We believe God not only inspired every word, but has preserved them through the ages. We believe the King James Version is the preserved Word of God for the English-speaking people.

God

We believe that God is a Person, eternally existing as a Trinity in unity - God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit - three Persons, yet one God.

Jesus

We believe Jesus Christ to be the one and only Saviour of mankind. We believe Jesus to be eternally God and to possess all the attributes of Diety. We believe that Jesus was virgin born, lived a sinless life, and died on the cross shedding His blood as payment for our sin. We believe that He rose from the grave and He is currently sitting on the right hand of the Father waiting to return for His Bride, the church.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is a divine person; equal with God the Father and God the Son. We believe it is the Holy Spirit who convicts of sin, of judgement, and of righteousness, and that He is the agent in the New Birth, and that He seals, endues, guides, teaches, witnesses, sanctifies, and helps the believer.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is only by the finished work of Jesus Christ. It is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ without the works of the law.

Baptism

We believe that baptism is by complete immersion and is for those who are already saved, not being required for salvation.

Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ made up of independent congregations of saved and baptized believers who have voluntarily united together for the purposes of preaching and teaching, fellowship, service, and the observance of the Lord's Supper.

End Time Events

We believe in the pre-tribulation rapture of the church saints, followed by the seven year Tribulation. We believe in the pre-millennial return of Christ to the earth and His literal rule of one thousand years. Following this one thousand years is the Great White Throne Judgment and then the new Heaven and new earth.
