What We Believe

Statement of Beliefs

The Bible
We believe the scripture of the Bible to be the inspired, only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
The Trinity
We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Saviour
We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
Salvation
We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential. Regeneration occurs when someone recognises their inherently sinful state, turns from that sin and personally accepts Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour. At which point, the Holy Spirit comes to indwell that person and it is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit indwelling a believer that they are empowered to live a godly life.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Baptism in Holy Spirit. This is a subsequent event distinct from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in a believer. Baptism in Holy Spirit endows the believer with power to demonstrate the Kingdom of God in word and deed.
The Resurrection
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
The Church
We believe in the spiritual unity of all those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ.
