 STATEMENT OF FAITH

1. We recognize that there is only one true and living God (Exodus 20:2,3), who exists as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and that He is worthy of all honour, praise and worship, as Creator, Sustainer and Beginning and End of all things (Revelation 4:11;5:9,10;Isaiah 43:1,7,21).

2. We recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah, the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us (John 1:1,14), We believe that He came to destroy the works of satan (1 John 3:8), that He disarmed the rulers and authorities, having triumphed over them (Colossians2:15).

3. We believe that God has proven His love for us, because when we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans5:8). We believe that He delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to His kingdom, and in Him we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13,14).

4. We believe that we are children of God (1 John3:1-3). We believe that we were saved by the grace of God through faith, that it was a gift and not the result of any works on our part (Ephesians2:8).

5. We believe that the Bible (i.e. the Old and New Testaments) is the inspired Word of God; the infallible, all-sufficient rule for faith and practice, and authoritative rule of faith and conduct (2 Tim. 3:15-161 Thess. 2:13 and 2 Peter 1:21).

6. We believe that Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth (Mathew 28:18), and that He is the head over all rule and authority (Colossains2:10). We believe that satan and his demons are subject to us in Christ because we are a member of Christ’s body (Ephesians 1:19-23).

7. We believe that apart from Christ we can do nothing (John15:5), so we declare our dependence on Him. We choose to abide in Christ in order to bear much fruit and glorify the Lord (John15:8). We announce to satan that Jesus is our Lord (1 Corinthians12:3), and we reject any counterfeit gifts or works of satan in our life.

8. We believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptised by immersion in water (Matt. 28:19Acts 10:47-48Acts 2:38-39). We believe in the baptism in the Holy Spirit as an enduement of the believer with power for service, the essential, Biblical evidence of which is the speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance (Acts 1:4-582:410:44-4611:14-1619:6).

9. We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ in the Church today (1 Cor. 12:4-1128Eph. 4:7-16).

10. We believe 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 (Dan. 12:2-3John 5:28-291 Cor. 15:22-24Matt. 25:462 Thess. 1:9Rev. 20:10-15).
