Our Statement of Faith and Doctrine

Article I

Section (1) Creed

We believe in God, the Father, the Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus, His only Son, our Saviour and Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died and buried; He descended into hell, the third day arose again from the dead, ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the father almighty, from whence He shall come to judge the living and the dead.

We believe in the Holy Ghost, the holy Christian Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the sanctification of believers, the resurrection of the body and everlasting life Amen.

Section (2) Confession of Faith

We believe that God is the eternal, omnipotent and triune Being: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; that this triune God created the heavens and the earth and all that in them is, visible and invisible; that He sustains, protects and governs these with gracious regard for the welfare of men to the glory of His name.

We believe that God, the father, through the gift of His only begotten son, provided redemption for man lost through the fall of Adam; that Christ the son, was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the Virgin Mary; that He was crucified, died and was buried; that He rose again, ascended to the father and that He became the Saviour of the world through the merits of His atoning blood.

We believe that the Holy Ghost reproves the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgment; and that He seals, empowers comforts and guides the believer.

We believe that the Holy Bible, the Old and the New Testament, is the inspired Word of God and that it is the final authority for faith and practice.

We believe that the work of Calvary is made effective to the believer through justification (forgiveness of committed sin) and sanctification (heart cleansing and empowerment) and that the work of grace thus wrought in the heart will effect a transformation of life and conduct.

We believe that the general ordinances, namely believer's baptism and the Lord's supper are enjoined in God's Word and that the scriptural practice of washing the saints' feet and the holy kiss are principles which should be observed in church life and practice.

We believe that the Scripture teaches that Christians should not be conformed to this world, that they should demonstrate the spirit of non-resistance; that, subject to a prior loyalty to the Word of God, it is their duty to be obedient to the government under which they live and that through their testimony and conduct they should be constant and effective witnesses for their Lord.

We believe that the Second coming of Christ is imminent and will be pre-millennial; that there will be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and the unjust; that life eternal is the gift of the righteous, but that everlasting punishment is reserved for the wicked.

We believe that the supreme duty and mission of the Church during this dispensation is world-wide evangelization in obedience to the Great Commission of Jesus Christ our Lord.

Article II

The Holy Scriptures

The Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, is the Word of God. This word, given by divine inspiration, completes the revelation of God partially disclosed through nature, providence and the voice of conscience (II Timothy 3:16; Psalms 19:14; Romans 2:14,15). The Holy Scriptures are necessary for the understanding of God and His character, attributes and purpose for men.

The Bible as the written Word of God reaches its climax in revelation in the incarnation of Jesus Christ as the living word of God (John 1:1,14). Through Christ, the living Word, and the Bible, the written Word are unfolded God's purpose, provision and plan for the salvation of men.
