We believe…

…the Bible to be the only inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God
     
(2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13; Hebrews 4:12)

…there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
     
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:19; Luke 3:22; John 14:16)

…in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ
     
(John 1:1, 14; 20:28-29; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:9; John 8:58)

…in Jesus’ virgin birth
     
(Matthew 1:18, 20; Luke 1:34-35; Isaiah 7:14)

…in Jesus’ sinless life
     
(2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; 7:24-28; 1 John 3:5; 1 Peter 2:22)

…in Jesus’ miracles
     
(Matthew 4:23; Luke 6:17-19; John 3:2)

…in Jesus’ vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood
     
(Colossians 1:14,20; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:7; Luke 24:45-47)

…in Jesus’ bodily resurrection
     
(1 Corinthians 15:3-7; Luke 24:4-7, 36-43; Revelation 1:17-18)

…in Jesus’ ascension to the right hand of the Father
     
(John 20:17; Acts 2:33; 5:30-31; 1 Peter 3:22)

…in Jesus’ personal return in power and glory
     
(Acts 1:11; 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; John 14:1-3)

…justification by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely for the salvation of lost and sinful people
     
(Romans 3:24-25; John 3:3-7; 1 John 5:11-13; Ephesians 2:1-16; Revelation 5:9; Acts 4:12;
       1 Corinthians 6:11)

…the prime agency for the work of God’s Kingdom is the Christian local church functioning under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ. To the Church have been entrusted the ordinances of believer’s baptism and the Lord’s Supper
     
(Acts 2:41-47, 16:4-5; Matthew 16:18, 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26, 12;
       Colossians 3:12-17; Romans 12:4-8)

…in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit which includes the Baptism in the Holy Spirit as an experience distinct from regeneration; His indwelling, by which the Christian is enabled to live a godly life; His supernatural gifting and empowering of the Church for its life, work and worship
     
(Luke 24:49; John 20:22; Acts 1:4-8,2:1-4, 10:44-46; 1 Corinthians 12 & 14; Romans 12:6-8)

…in the return of Jesus Christ to consummate his Kingdom, in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation
     
(John 5:28-29; Mark 14:62; 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10; Revelation 1:5-7, 20:4-5,11-15)

…in the spiritual unity of all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ
     
(John 17:11, 21-23; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16)
