We believe that there is one, and only one, living, eternal and true God; an infinite, intelligent Spirit, the Creator and the Supreme ruler of Heaven and earth inexpressibly glorious in holiness and worthy of all possible honour, faith and love; that in the unity of the Godhead there are three Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in every divine perfection, executing distinct and harmonious offices in the work of redemption.
We believe the Bible to be the complete Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were inspired by the Spirit of God and were entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian union.
We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His conception by the Holy Spirit, His birth by the Virgin Mary, His real but sinless humanity, His voluntary humiliation in life as the Man of Sorrows culminating in His substitutionary and atoning death as a sacrifice for sin, His bodily resurrection from the dead, His Ascension into Heaven as the only and eternal mediator between God and man and His coming again in power and glory.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, through Whom man is born again to saving repentance and faith, and by Whom the saints are sanctified and enabled to live a godly life.
We believe that Satan is a person; that he is the malignant prince of the power of the air, and the unholy god of this world; that he is man’s great tempter, the enemy of God and His Christ, the accuser of the saints; that he is the author of all false religions, the inspirer of all apostasy, and the chief of all the powers of darkness; that he with his principalities is overcome by our appropriation of Christ’s victory on Calvary; that he along with his hosts is destined to final defeat at the hands of God’s Son, and to suffer eternal punishment in a place prepared for him and his angels.
Salvation by Grace
We believe that the salvation of man is solely by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, that the saved partake of eternal life now and will share in that glorious resurrection which is to come.
Consequence of Sin
We believe that man in consequence of the Fall is utterly sinful and therefore lost, and the unsaved will be raised for final judgement.
We believe in the spiritual unity of all who truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, that is, the only Holy Universal Church which is the body of Christ.
We believe that water baptism in its many forms and the Lord's Supper are ordinances to be observed by the church during this present age. They are, however, not to be regarded as means of salvation.
