What We Believe

What We Believe

The Holy Scriptures

The word of God, that is all the 66 books in the Old and New Testament Canon, is fully and completely inspired by the Holy Spirit of God who moved men to write the very Word of God.
We believe that this Word of God is sufficient, inerrant, final and authoritative in all matters of life. We believe that the scriptures of God have given us full knowledge of what God requires of us in faith and practice.

About God

There is one eternal God. That He is of one indivisible essence and yet consists of three distinct, co-equal persons,(the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit). The Father is of the same essence as the Son and the Holy Spirit with none being inferior to the other.
That this God is the author and creator of all things that exist. That He is sovereign over all with no need of anything from the created order. That He is sovereign in Creation, Redemption, Providence and the Consummation.

About The Lord Jesus Christ

That the Lord Jesus Christ is the second person of the triune God. That He He clothed Himself with a human body at His incarnation. That He was born of the virgin birth. That his body is not mixed with His divinity but is separate. That His body has all the qualities and characteristics of humanity without sin. That His humanity has neither enhanced nor diminished His divinity. That the God-Man Jesus Christ lived on earth 2000 years ago and was laid on the cross of Calvary to bear the sins of many. That He died on the cross, was buried, rose again on the third day and ascended up into heaven having made a public spectacle of His enemies. That He shall come back one day to judge the world and to restore all things in the created order, to the praise of His glory.

About Man

That man is totally depraved in all his faculties. That this total depravity does not mean that man is as bad as he could be but rather that every faculty of man is tainted by sin and is therefore unable to truly serve and worship God as he ought to. That the depravity of man makes it impossible for him to approach the courts of a holy God without a mediator. That in order to approach God in a manner acceptable to the triune God man must have another to atone for his sins. That none but a sinless one may represent man before a holy God. That none other but the Lord Jesus Christ is sufficient to represent man to God and to atone for his sins.

About The Church

That the true church of the Lord Jesus Christ is composed only of those who have been washed and cleansed by the blood of the lamb. That only those whose names are written in the book of life and who walk in the spirit may be considered the true people of God. That these having nothing to do with the fruitless works of darkness are crucified with Christ. That these have crucified the flesh with its sinful passions and desires. Though they belong to local visible churches yet they really belong to the true invisible church of the eternally begotten Son of God
