What we believe

Statement of faith

Statement of faith – short version

 

About God – There is only one God, who is the creator of heaven and earth. We believe that in the unity of the godhead there are three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is holy and infinite in all His attributes. 

 

About Christ – He is the Son of God, born of a virgin, who died on the cross to atone for the sins of humans, resurrected on the third day, ascended into heaven at the right hand of God. Christ will return in power and glory to judge the world and to complete the redemption of those who believed in Him. 

 

About the Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is the divine helper, assistant, counselor and instructor. His work is to reveal Christ, convict of sin, lead to repentance, guide believers, comfort, strengthen, and sanctify the soul.

 

About the Bible - The Bible is God’s Holy Word, without error, and is the sole authority for all matters in life. 

 

About Man: Man is God’s chief creation. He is made in the image of God, but he is fallen because of sin, and is in desperate need of salvation. 

 

About Salvation: Salvation is made possible by the atoning death of Jesus Christ on the cross. It is a gift of God that man can receive only through repentance and faith in Christ. 

 

About Baptism: Along with the Lord’s Supper, baptism is one of the only two sacraments of the church. Baptism is a symbol for the union of the believer with Christ in his death and his resurrection. It is done by the immersion of a professing believer.  

 

About the church: The New Testament describes the church as the Body of Christ that is comprised of all the redeemed throughout the ages. The church is also an autonomous local gathering of baptized believers who seek to glorify God and make disciples. 

 

About the last things: The Bible contains extensive promises of Christ’s return as the end of the world. He will come in all glory, the dead will be raised, and all people will be judged by Him. The unrighteous will be confined to hell for all eternity, a place of everlasting punishment, while the righteous will dwell forever in heaven with God, in glorified bodies. 

 

About evangelism: The task of proclaiming the gospel to the world is commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ. Believers are thus expected to seek to win people for Christ, both through a godly conduct and verbal testimony.
