THE CHURCH

We believe the church is the community of God’s redeemed people, all who have truly trusted Christ alone for their salvation. The church is created by the Holy Spirit to exalt Jesus Christ as Lord of all. Christ is the Head, Lord, Savior and King of the Church. This one universal church finds expression in varied local churches. In each local church, believers are to be a spiritual family that regularly gathers for worship, prayer, the teaching of the Word, baptism and communion. Each churc...

SALVATION

We believe in salvation by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ. This salvation is based upon the sovereign grace of God.

We believe that all true believers, having been justified, shall be kept eternally secure (saved) forever. It is the unmerited grace and keeping and sust...

HUMANITY

We believe God created humankind, male and female, in his own image and likeness with dignity and worth. He created us to worship, enjoy and love Him forever, and to be responsible stewards of His creation. Adam and Eve, sinfully defied God, corrupting the entire human race, alienating us from God, and bringing us under his righteous judgments.

GOD

We believe God is uncreated, eternal, self –sustaining, unchanging, all-knowing, all-powerful, present everywhere and entirely wise, good, loving, gracious, compassionate, righteous and holy. This one God eternally exists as a loving community of three equal persons – God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. They are equal in nature, but distinct in role and relationship. God created the universe, the world and everything in it. Through his sovereign authority and unrivalled ...
