Faith Statement: We believe in one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, active in the work of creation, providence and redemption;

The full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ our Lord, His virgin birth, His atoning death, His bodily resurrection and ascension, and His ministry in the world as the only Saviour and final Judge;

The dignity of man created in the image of God, His subsequent fall, universal sinfulness and guilt of human nature, his need for justification and regeneration;

Redemption from guilt, penalty, and power of sin only through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the incarnate son of God. The Holy Spirit who by sanctifying and indwelling believers enables them to live a Christ-like life to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ and serve responsibility in the contemporary world;

The spiritual unity of all believers in Christ, composing the Church, the body of Christ, visibly expressed in worship, fellowship and service in society. The personal return of Jesus Christ in power and glory to consummate His kingdom, and the resurrection of all people to eternal life or to eternal condemnation;

The Holy Scripture composed of the sixty six books of the Old and New Testaments, as originally given by God, uniquely inspired, entirely trustworthy, the supreme authority and infallible in all matters of faith and doctrine.
