Statement of Faith

Our Statement of Faith is a brief expression of Christian confidence and of the Christian values, found in the one true God, who is revealed in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we bear witness to the one living God, revealed through the Bible. The presence and hope of the kingdom of God shape and motivate our mission through evangelism, compassionate service, and active pursuit care for His creation.

We accept those areas of doctrinal teaching on which, historically, there has been general agreement among all true Christians. We desire to allow for freedom of conviction on other doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation is based upon the Bible, and that no such interpretation shall become an issue which hinders the ministry to which God has called us.

We believe in:

  • The Divine inspiration and inerrancy of the Old and New Testaments as the Word of God; its infallible authority in all matters relating to faith and practise


  • The Unity of the Godhead and Trinity of persons therein (God the Creator and Father of all who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son and the Holy Spirit, guide to all truth).


  • The Deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His incarnation through the virgin birth and His true but absolutely sinless humanity, His infallibility as teacher whose every word is authoritative, His death upon the Cross as a propitiatory and substitutionary sacrifice for sin, His bodily resurrection and ascension and His intercession as the High Priest of His people, His future personal and glorious Second Advent.


  • The fall of man, the guilt and total depravity* of human nature, in consequence, the only remedy for sin through repentance and the new birth regeneration by the Holy Spirit, justification by faith alone and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in every believer for sanctification.


  • The resurrection of the dead, the judgement of the world by the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal blessedness of the believer and the eternal punishment of the unbeliever.

* The doctrine of total depravity asserts that people are, as a result of the fall, not inclined or even able to love God wholly with heart, mind, and strength, but rather are inclined by nature to serve their own will and desires and reject his rule.
