Our Faith

We believe in the whole Bible.

…In its original writing, fully inspired of God. We accept His Words as the supreme and final authority for our faith and life.  — 2 Timothy 3:16

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons.

…Father, Son and Holy Spirit. — Matthew 28:19

We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

…Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, fully God and fully man, the Saviour of humanity. — Luke 1:26-35; Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6

We believe God created man in His own image.

…Man sinned and incurred the penalty of sin and separation from God. — Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12,18

We believe in the death, resurrection and return of Jesus Christ.

…Jesus’ death paid the price for our sins.  He was the sacrifice and it is by His blood we are made free; His body buried and then resurrected on the third day.  We believe Jesus will return in glory. — 1 Corinthians 15:1-4; Romans 4:25; John 14:1-2, Matthew 25:31-33

We believe in salvation and grace.

…For all who confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and believe in their hearts that God raised Him from the dead.  By this declaration of faith and the perfect and finished work of the cross, all who repent of their sins and receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Saviour are born again as children of God.  — Romans 10:9; Ephesians 2:8-9; Hebrews 9:12,22

We believe in the Holy Spirit.

…The baptism of the Holy Spirit, the gifts of the Spirit and that His presence and power is among us.  We earnestly seek these gifts, and believe they are still applicable today. — John 16:13; Galatians 5:22; 1 Corinthians 12,13,14

We believe in accountability.

…We partner with the NCMI (New Covenant Ministries International) team which serves to provide oversight and accountability in church governance, doctrine and personal behaviour.

We believe in healing.

…Divine healing – present in the Old and New Testaments – an integral part of the Gospel today.  — Mark 16:16-18; Matthew 8:16-17; 1 Corinthians 12:9; James 5:14-15

We believe in the Church.

…As God’s plan to reach the world and share the love and good news of Jesus.  We are the priesthood of all believers in Christ Jesus.  We believe the local and global church should work together to serve God, people, and on another in unity and honour. – 1 Peter 2:9

We believe in baptism and communion.

…We believe that Jesus appointed two sacred acts for the church to demonstrate the faith: baptism in water and the Lords’ Supper (Communion).  Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ’s burial and resurrection.  Communion is partaking in an active remembrance of what Christ did for us and a celebration of what we receive because of His sacrifice.  — Matthew 28:19; Acts 19:1-6; 1 Corinthians 11:28 -32

We believe in the five-fold ministry.

…That they are a gift to the church.  Christ gave some to be apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, equipping believers for the work of service to build up the body of Christ.  — Ephesians 4:11; Romans 12:4-8
