The Bible is God’s Word, written by men divinely inspired, and the supreme infallible authority in all matters of faith and conduct. Man’s customs, traditions and opinions should not supersede the authority of the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16)
The Triune God
We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (I Timothy 1:17, John 1:14, John 4:24)
- We believe in God the Father, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom and measureless in power. We rejoice that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin all those who come to him through Jesus Christ. (Leviticus 11:44; Psalm 39; Psalm 50:1)
- We believe in Jesus Christ, the eternal and only begotten Son of God who was conceived of the Holy Spirit by virgin birth who was sinless in His life and who through His death made atonement for the sins of the world. We believe in His resurrection, His ascension, His role as our Mediator before God and His future return to the world. (John 3:16, Luke. 31-32, John. 1:14, Acts 8:37, John. 14:3)
- We believe in the person of the Holy Spirit, whose ministry is to glorify Christ, to convince the world of sin, and to regenerate, indwell, sanctify, comfort, encourage and empower those who believe in Christ. (John. 6:62, 15:26, 16:7-14, John.5:1, Romans. 8:9, Romans. 13:16, I Peter 1:2, I Corinthians. 12:7-11).
Salvation and Forgiveness
We believe that all men by nature and by choice are lost sinners and can only be saved by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, through faith apart from works. We believe in the resurrection from the dead of the believer to everlasting life and blessedness and joy with the Lord in heaven, and of the unbeliever to everlasting punishment and separation from God in Hell. (John 3:16, 5:28-29, Romans 5:8-12, John 17:3, Ephesians 2:1-9, Titus 3:5, Revelation 20:11-15)
We believe in the Church as a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head and of which all regenerated people are members. (Colossians 1:18) The transformation of believers and social improvement are inevitable by-products of the Gospel and discipleship.
The Relationship between Church and State
We believe that all Christians should be faithful citizens and obedient to the State, in upholding and maintaining its laws. Governments are ordained by God. We believe that every human being is responsible to God alone in all matters of faith. At the same time every church must cooperate with, uphold and implement the civil laws of Government, seeing that they are for the good of the whole man. (Matthew 2:21, Acts 6:1-7, Romans. 13:1-7, 14: 7-12, Titus 3:1, I Peter 2:13-14).
