Statement Of Faith

STATEMENT OF FAITH

We believe:

•In one God Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally co-existing in three persons-Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

•The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are the inspired and trustworthy Word of God, the complete revelation of His will for salvation of human beings, and the final authority for all matters about which it speaks.

•That human nature derives from two historical persons, male and female, created in God’s image.  They were created perfect, but they sinned, plunging themselves and all human beings into sin, guilt, suffering and death.

•That the substitutionary death of Jesus Christ and His bodily resurrection provide the only grounds for justification, forgiveness and salvation for all who believe, and only those who trust Him alone are born of the Holy Spirit, true members of the Church.

•That the Holy Spirit is the agent of regeneration and renewal for believers in Christ, that He makes the presence of Jesus Christ real in believers, and that He comforts, guides, convicts and enables believers to live in ways that honour Him.

•That the true Church is an organism of people of any nation and ethnicity who are connected to each other by the new birth into the one family of Christ.

•That the growth of this Church or Ecclesia is sustained by the interactive fellowship of the believers in prayer, Bible Study, encouragement and exhortation to each other as well as through the evangelization of lost men.
