The following eight point affirmation of bible doctrine represents the essential teachings of our faith:

BIBLE

We believe the Bible to be the complete revealed Word of God; that the sixty-six books, as originally written, comprising the Old and New Testaments were verbally inspired by the Spirit of God and were entirely free from error; that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice and the true basis of Christian unity.

GOD

We believe in one God, Creator of all, holy, sovereign, eternal, existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

A. Father: We believe in the absolute and essential deity of the Father who designs, creates and governs everything.
B. Son: We believe in the absolute and essential deity of Jesus Christ the Son, in His eternal existence with the Father in preincarnate glory, in His virgin birth, sinless life, substitutionary death, bodily resurrection, triumphant ascension, mediatorial ministry and personal return.
C. Holy Spirit: We believe in the absolute and essential deity and personality of the Holy Spirit who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; who regenerates, sanctifies, illuminates and comforts those who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour.

SATAN

We believe that Satan exists as an evil spirit being, the originator of sin, the head of a host of demons who are his forces of worldwide evil, the arch-enemy of God and humans.

HUMANS

We believe that humans were divinely created in the image of God; that they sinned, becoming guilty before God, resulting in total depravity, thereby incurring physical and spiritual death.

SALVATION

We believe that salvation is by the sovereign, electing grace of God; that by the appointment of the Father, Christ voluntarily suffered a substitutionary death in which He took upon Himself our guilt and the just wrath of God which was against us because of our sin. By His death He paid the penalty for our sins and turned aside God's just wrath. Justification is by faith alone in the all-sufficient sacrifice and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ. Those whom God has called will be divinely preserved, and enabled to persevere by His grace and will finally be perfected in the image of the Lord.

FUTURE THINGS

We believe in the personal, bodily and glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ; in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust; in the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and in the judgment and conscious, eternal punishment of the wicked.

THE LOCAL CHURCH

We believe that a church is an assembly of believers, baptized by immersion, who meet to worship God and to continue steadfastly in the Apostles' doctrine, fellowship, the breaking of bread and prayer. We believe that its officers are elders and deacons.

ORDINANCES

We believe that there are only two ordinances for the church regularly observed in the New Testament in the following order:

A. Baptism: which is the immersion of the believer in water, whereby he obeys Christ's command and sets forth his identification with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection;
B. The Lord's Supper: which is the memorial wherein the believer partakes of the two elements which symbolize the Lord's body and shed blood, proclaiming His death until He comes.
