What we Believe
The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament as originally given, as the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God, and as the sole, supreme and all-sufficient authority in every matter of Christian faith and practice.
One living and true God, Sovereign in creation, providence and redemption, subsisting in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - the same in substance and equal in power and glory.
The eternal sonship and essential, absolute and eternal deity, and the true and sinless humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ; His virgin birth, His death and burial. His physical resurrection and ascension into Heaven, and His coming again in power and glory.
The personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, through whom the sinner is born again to saving repentance and faith, and by whom the saints are sanctified through the Truth.
The total depravity of man by the fall of Adam, through whom every human being has lost all righteousness and holiness, and come under the righteous condemnation of God.
The personal and unconditional election in Christ, of a multitude which no man can number, to everlasting life, out of God's pure grace and love, without any foresight of faith or good works in them.
The personal and eternal redemption from all sin and the penal consequences thereof, of all God's elect, by the substitutionary sacrifice on the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ.
The effectual calling of all the elect by the irresistible Grace of God.
The justification of sinners by faith alone, through the atoning death, resurrection and imputed righteousness of Christ.
The baptism of believers by total immersion.
The second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ - when the dead in Christ will be raised and, together with the living who are in Christ, will return to Heaven with Him, while all those outside of Him will go to everlasting punishment.
The final perseverance in the state of grace of all those who have been elected by the Father, redeemed by the Son and regenerated by the Holy spirit - so that they shall never perish but have eternal life.
