The Bible is the inspired Word of God and the sole foundation for faith and practice of all believers. It reveals a triune God: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of lost mankind who were separated from God by sin. Jesus, the Son of God, died a substitutionary death on the cross, was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures to save a lost humanity from eternal separation from God. Those who place their faith in the finished work of the Lord Jesus Christ are regenerated with divine life by the Holy Spirit. It is the responsibility of all believers to work together to share the Gospel message with all, that in all things God may be glorified.
The Word of God
In the word-by-word inspiration, inerrancy, sufficiency, and final authority of the Holy Scriptures. God has spoken to man through His Word, the Bible, in the Old and New Testaments, is without error in the original manuscripts. The author was God the Holy Spirit using human writers and is the supreme revelation of the will of God and is the sole authority in the lives of believers within His Church.
In one God, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is a personal Being and the Creator and sustainer of the universe. He is one God, He exists in three Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These Persons are equal in essence but each has His own distinct work.
In the literal interpretation of the creation account that God created one man, Adam and one woman, Eve as His first image-bearing human beings. God created all things, including the Earth, for His image-bearers to enjoy Him and reflect His Glory.
The Fall of Man and Sin
Adam, made in the image of God, was originally created a sinless being. He willingly sinned and fell from that sinless state; through Adam all mankind are now sinners resulting in mankind’s complete and universal separation from God. As a result, all human beings are alienated from God and condemned to death eternally separated from God without God’s own gracious intervention.
The Lord Jesus Christ
In the Lord Jesus Christ as true God and true man; His virgin birth, sinless humanity, vicarious death, bodily resurrection, current advocacy, and His personal, imminent, bodily return for His church. That the Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood and died as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world.
The Holy Spirit
That the Holy Spirit regenerates with divine life and personally indwells the believer upon his faith in Christ for salvation. He is an eternal and divine Person, co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. He was active in creation. He convicts men of sin.
That the Lord Jesus Christ shed His blood and died as a sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. Salvation is made free to all by the Gospel. It is initiated by God, and is accomplished by grace apart from any human works. It is the duty of all persons to repent and believe. All who have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ are forgiven, regenerated, and justified. That from all eternity God determined in grace to save a great multitude of guilty sinners from every tribe and language and people and nation. We believe that God justifies and sanctifies those who by grace have faith in Jesus, and that He will one day glorify them—all to the praise of His glorious grace.
That the Church, the Body of Christ, is composed of all true believers who are placed into that Body by the baptizing work of the Holy Spirit. That a local, visible church is an organized congregation of baptized believers, associated together by a common faith and fellowship in the Gospel, to glorify God in reverent and orderly worship.
Future of the Saints
In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved. In the eternal life of the saved in a promised New Heaven and New Earth with the Lord and the eternal separation from God of the unsaved in Hell. In the blessed hope for all believers of Christ’s personal, imminent, bodily return for His church.
