Statement of Faith

The Inspiration of the Bible: We believe the Bible is the verbally inspired word of God.
The Person of God: We believe God is supreme in his Person, eternal in His being, absolute in His attributes, and glorious in His perfection. We believe in the Trinity.
The Person of Jesus Christ: We believe in the virgin birth of Christ, His deity, and sinless life, His vicarious death, along with His bodily resurrection and ascension, and in His personal, pre-millenial return.
The Person of the Holy Spirit: We believe the Holy Spirit is the executive of the Godhead. We believe that he executes the Plan of God for our conviction and salvation. Christians are partakers of the Holy Spirit and empowered for service by Him.
The Fall of Man: We believe that man was created in the image of God any by choice fell into sin and death. Hence, every person is sinful and under condemnation to eternal judgement.
The Salvation of Sinners: We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of Grace and that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation.
The Freeness of Salvation: We believe that the blessings of salvation are made free by the Gospel, that nothing prevents the salvation of the greatest sinner but His own inherent depravity and voluntary rejection of the Gospel.
The Security of the Believer: We believe that those who receive Jesus Christ as Saviour are eternally secure. Our security rests on the finished work of Jesus Christ. As a result, we have assurance.
The Doctrine of the Church: We believe that the visible church is a 
congregation of baptized believers, practicing New Testament principles, unbelieving its doctrines, observing its ordinances and exercising its autonomy.

The Doctrine of Heaven and Hell: We believe in the eternal blessedness of the saved in heaven and the eternal punishment of the lost in hell.
