1. The Bible is inspired of God, inerrant in the original documents and of final authority in all matters of faith and practice. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 1 Thes. 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:21).
  2. There is one God, (Deut. 6:4, 1 Tim. 2:5) eternally existent (Deut. 33:27) in three persons (Matt. 28:19) Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Heb. 9:14).
  3. The Lord Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man (1 Tim. 3:16, 2 :5-6) born of a virgin (Luke 1:35), sinlessly perfect (Heb. 4:15, 1 Pet. 2:22, 1 John 3:5, 2 Cor. 5:21). Because of His sacrifice, the sinner finds in Christ a substitute (1 Pet. 2:24) and a representative who forever pleads His blood for our justification (Heb. 7:25). He rose bodily from the dead (Luke 24:39) and ascended to His Father’s right hand (Eph. 1:20-23) where He now ministers as our Great High Priest (Heb. 4:14-16, 9:24).
  4. Each member of the human race is fallen, sinful and lost (Rom. 3:23, 5:12). Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary for the salvation of man (Tit. 3:5, Rom. 8:9). Redemption is wholly by the blood of Christ (Heb. 9:12-14, 1 Pet. 1:18- 19) and salvation is by grace, through faith in our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph. 2:5-9). Christ’s atoning death makes it possible for God to justly offer free salvation to all, but it is the responsibility of each individual to accept or reject this offer (John 1:12, 3:16). Every true child of God possesses eternal life and is saved for all eternity (John 10:27-29, 5:24, 3:16).
  5. From the moment of conversion each believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit who seals him unto the day of redemption (Eph. 1:13-14, 4:30, Rom. 8:9-11). It is through the power of the Holy Spirit that the believer can live a godly life (Gal. 5:16, 22-23).
  6. We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust (Phil. 3:21, John 5:29, 1 Cor. 15:51-55, Rev. 20:12-13), and the everlasting blessedness of the saved (Phil. 1:23, Rev. 22:4-5) and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost (Rev. 20:10-15, Matt. 25:46).
  7. We believe in the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (1 Thes. 4:14-18, Tit. 2:13, Acts 1:11, Heb. 9:28).
  8. The church as a whole is not an organization but a living organism, known as the body of Christ (Eph. 1:22-23). The local church is composed of believers in a locality e.g. Phil. 1:1. They gather in Christ’s name as a corporate testimony to the Lordship of Christ (Col. 1:18) and to the oneness of the body of Christ (John 17:21). They gather to commemorate the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11:23-26), for worship (John 4:23), prayer (Acts 2:42), and edification (Eph. 4:12, 2 Tim. 4:2). Government and discipline are the responsibility of the local church (Matt. 18:15-17, 1 Cor. 5:1-13).
  9. In keeping with our belief in the oneness of the body of Christ, the Lord’s people, as such, should avoid names other than those which are given them in scripture, such as, “Christians” (Acts 11:26), saints (1 Cor. 1:2), believers (Acts 5:14), brethren (Heb. 2:11) and disciples (Acts 9:1, Acts 10:23). The name “reverend” belongs to God alone and should not be applied to men (Psalm 111:9).
  10. There are two Christian ordinances, baptism by immersion (Matt. 28:19, Acts 8:35-39) and the Lord’s Supper (Luke 22:19-20). Baptism is for believers upon confession of their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 8:37). It signifies that the one being baptized has been crucified with Christ unto sin, has been buried with Him and is risen with Him to walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:3-6). The Lord’s Supper was commemorated by the early church on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7), and we believe that it is the privilege and duty of every true believer to heed the Lord’s request. “This do in remembrance of me”
    (Luke 22:19).
