STATEMENT OF FAITH

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe that the Bible is God’s unique revelation and that every word was supernaturally inspired by the Holy Spirit as it was being written down by various human authors.
We believe that there is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three distinguishable persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other (Mat 28:19; 2Co 13:14).
We believe that all people are created in the image of God and matter deeply to Him.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God and the Savior of the world.
We believe in the Holy Spirit who is equal to the Father and the Son.
We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an important experience available to every believer.
We believe in the necessity of water baptism by immersion in the name of the Godhead in order to fulfil the command of the Lord Jesus Christ (Mat 28:19; Acts 2:34-36; 19:1-6).
We believe in the healing of the body by God’s power as practiced in the early church (Acts 4:30; Rom 8:11; 1Co 12:9; Jam 5:14).
We believe in the Lord’s Table, commonly called “communion” or “the Lord’s Supper”, for believers (1Co 11:28-32; Mat 26:26-28).
We believe in the reality and personality of the Devil and eternal judgment in the lake of fire for the Devil and his angels (Mat 25:41; Rev 20:14, 15).
We believe that there is one true universal church made up of genuine believers and comprising many churches in various localities each exercising autonomous government under the headship of Jesus Christ.
