We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (John 1:1–5; John 14:9–11; 16–20).
We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible (Acts 17:24–28).
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s one and only Son, our one and only Savior
(John 1:14; John 3:16). Who was born both fully human and fully divine, conceived of the Holy Spirit
and the virgin Mary, and lived a sinless life (Luke 1:26–38; Colossians 2:9; 1 John 1:1).
Who suffered and was crucified (Luke 23:1–46). Who died and was buried, and rose again bodily from the
dead on the third day (Luke 23:44–24:8). Who ascended into Heaven and now sits at the right hand of the
Father (Luke 22:69; Acts 1:1–9). And who will return to earth to judge both the living and the dead
(Matthew 24:36–42; John 14:1–3; 1 Peter 4:5).
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is a personal and active part of the triune God
(John 16: 5–15; Romans 8:26–27). And who indwells every Christian (1 Corinthians 3:16; 2 Timothy 1:14).
We believe in the Bible: God’s Holy Word. We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture,
and therefore the Bible is completely trustworthy in all its parts (2 Timothy 3:14–16; 2 Peter 1:20–21).
We accept the Bible as the final authority for all matters of faith and practice (Romans 15:4; Hebrews 4:12).
We believe that people created by God willfully sin against God and are consequently lost and without
hope apart from Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23; Acts 4:12). We believe that salvation (the forgiveness of sins)
cannot be earned, but is given to us only through the blood of Jesus Christ and by God’s grace
We believe we must respond to God by: Admitting our need for God’s grace (Romans 3:23; Titus 3:3–7).
Turning away from sin (repenting) (Acts 3:19). Trusting Jesus as Saviour and Lord (Romans 10:11–13).
Being baptized (immersed) into Christ (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:1–4).
We believe in the church of Jesus Christ, consisting of all Christians everywhere
(Matthew 16:13–18; Acts 2:14–47). We believe in the church’s mission: making disciples of all nations,
baptizing them and teaching them to obey all of Jesus’ commands (Matthew 28:18–20).
