Statement of Faith
(i) The sixty-six canonical books of the Bible as originally written were inspired of God, hence free from error. They constitute the only infallible guide in faith and practice.
(ii) There is one God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, infinite in being and perfection. He exists eternally in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, who are of one substance and equal in power and glory.
(iii) The original creation of all things by God for His own pleasure in six literal days.
(iv) the eternal pre-existence, the incarnation, the virgin birth, the sinless life, the miracles, the substitutionary death, the personal bodily resurrection and ascension to Heaven, and the personal bodily return to earth of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the coming new heavens and new earth in which righteousness dwells.
(v) God created Adam and Eve in his own image. By disobedience, they fell from their sinless state through the temptation by Satan. This fall plunged humanity into a state of sin and spiritual death, and brought upon the entire race the sentence of eternal death. From this condition we can be saved only by the grace of God, through faith, on the basis of the work of Christ, and by the agency of the Holy Spirit.
(vi) The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Triune God. He applies to man the work of Christ. By justification and adoption we are given a right standing before God; by regeneration, sanctification, and glorification our nature is renewed.
(vii) that all those redeemed by faith in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ together form with Him a new creation which is His body and bride, the Church, expressed on earth through gatherings of true believers into local churches; that true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ bear testimony to Him by practising good works consistent with the Bible and in the power of His indwelling Spirit, and that this involves the universal proclamation of the Gospel and the effective discipling of believers and children of believers through Christ-honouring education and training.
