that the Bible is the authoritative, infallible Word of God and, as such, is our only basis of direction in all matters of faith and practice.
that our God is the one and only God, Eternal and Holy, existing in three equal persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
that God the Father is all-loving, Almighty Creator and Sustainer of all things, and is bringing about the perfection of His purpose.
that God the Son, Jesus Christ, the Word of God Incarnate, is the only Saviour, Redeemer and Lord of His people. He is the Ruler of all creation.
that God the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Living Christ sent by the Father to be our Comforter, Helper and Seal of Salvation.
that Satan is the originator of sin and the conquered enemy of God and His people, and that he alienates man from God and man from man. At present his armies have great power on earth. He is the false accuser of God’s people; tempting and deceiving, replacing God’s Truth with his lies and bringing death to mankind.
that man was created in the image of God, a sinless, physical and spiritual being. Choosing to disobey God, Adam alienated himself and all mankind from God, destroying the harmony of the created universe.
that God restored harmony through our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Jesus, conceived in Mary by the Holy Spirit, led a sinless life of perfect obedience to the Father’s will. His lifestyle, filled and empowered by the Holy Spirit, is our example. His death by crucifixion has provided everlasting forgiveness of our sins and reconciliation with God. Buried for three days, He was resurrected by God. Thus He has triumphantly created His church and given us Eternal life. He ascended into Heaven and reigns with the Father. In joyful expectation we, God’s people, anticipate His triumphant return, the fulfillment of His Kingdom.
that the Universal Church is the living, holy and mystical Body of our Saviour, the fullness of God. Its members, through the work of the world, united into a priesthood of believers and empowered to carry out God’s plan.
that the local church is the manifestation of the Universal Church , the actual channel of God’s grace. The Holy Spirit bestows gifts upon and motivates each individual in this church to serve, edify and love as Christ loves us in order that all shall come to the fullness of God. In this environment God regenerates His chosen ones. Thus emulating Christ, we strive both corporately and individually to proclaim the Gospel and to love our neighbour as ourselves.
and thus, we are confident that He will keep us from falling and will set us in the presence of His glory, jubilant and above reproach. To the only God our Saviour be glory and majesty, might and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord before all time, now and forevermore.
