Our Beliefs

The Scriptures- The Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is the record of God's revelation of Himself to man. It had God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth for its matter.

God- There is one and only one living and true God. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being. To God we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience.

The Trinity- God is revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence or being.

The Fall Of Man- God originally created man in holiness, free from sin, but, through the temptation of Satan, he transgressed the command of God and fell from his original holiness and righteousness; whereby his posterity inherit nature corrupt and wholly opposed to God and His law.

Salvation- Salvation involves the redemption of the whole person, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.

Justification- Justification is God's gracious and full acquittal of sinners, who believe in Christ, from all sin, and the promise of eternal life on principles of righteousness; not in consideration of any works of righteousness we have done, but solely through faith in the Redeemer’s blood.

Regeneration- Regeneration means being “born again.” Unbelievers are dead in trespasses and sins, but through God’s grace, their new birth is of the spirit. Conversion takes place when sinners turn to God in repentance and faith for salvation. It is a work of God's free and special grace alone.

Repentance- Repentance is an evangelical grace, wherein a person being, by the Holy Spirit, made sensible of the manifold evil of sin, humbleth himself for it, with godly sorrow, detestation of it, and self-abhorrence, with a purpose and endeavor to walk with God so as to please Him in all things.

Providence- God from eternity decrees or permits all things that come to pass, and perpetually upholds, directs and governs all creatures and all events; yet, so as not in any wise to be the author or approver of sin not to

Baptism- Christian Baptism is the full emersion in water of a believer into the name of the Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost to show our belief and faith in the crucified, buried and risen saviour.
