What We Believe ...
We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God.
"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work. " (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". (John 1:1) and "A voice came from Heaven saying: You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased" (Mark1:11)
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of
the virgin Mary and that He became flesh and lived our life.
"The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Emmanuel" (Isaiah 7:14). and"The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us". (John 1:14).
We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross to save mankind from sin.
"He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live for righteousness; by His wounds you have been healed" (1 Peter 2:24) and "In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace" (Ephesians 1:7)
We believe on the third day after His crucifixion, Jesus Christ rose victoriously
from the dead, was seen alive, and now sits at the right hand of God, Lord
"He was buried, that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that He appeared to Peter and then to the Twelve" (1 Corinthians 15:4) and "Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith who, for the joy set before Him, endured the Cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God" (Hebrews 12:2) and "God has made this Jesus, whom you cruicified, both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:36).
We believe that salvation is freely offered to all who accept Jesus Christ
as their Lord and Saviour.
"If you confess with your mouth 'Jesus is Lord' and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead you will be saved" (Romans 10:9).
We believe in the promise of everlasting life
"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life" (John 3).
We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, enabling every believer
to live a life obedient and pleasing to God.
"Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good. (1 Corinthians 12:7)
We believe that Jesus Christ will return again to bring His people to Himself
"For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever." (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
