Our Doctrine

Statement of Faith


The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the Bible (the King James Bible of 1611) consisting of Old and New Testament Scriptures is the verbally and plenarily inspired Word of God, His Revelation to man, inerrant and that it is therefore the supreme and final authority in all matters of doctrine, faith and life. (11 Timothy 3:16-17)

The Trinity of the God-Head

We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

The Creation and Fall of Man

We believe that man was created in the image of God; that he sinned and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God. All human beings are born with a sinful nature and are totally depraved, and for those who reach moral responsibility become sinners in thought, word, and deed, and that they must be born-again to be accepted by God. (Romans 5:12; 3:10, 23; John 3:1-21)

The Death, Resurrection and Ascension of Jesus Christ

We believe that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures as a representative and a substitutionary sacrifice, and that all who believe in Him are saved on the grounds of His shed blood. We believe that He arose bodily from the dead on the third day in the same body in which He suffered and died. We also believe that our Lord ascended into Heaven; that He is now seated at the right hand of the Father and is our High Priest and Divine Advocate with the Father. We believe that, by His finished work on the Cross and His unceasing ministry of intercession in Glory, that Jesus Christ has procured for every believer eternal redemption, eternal salvation, and everlasting life. (I Corinthians 15:3-4; John 20:27; Mark 16:19; Hebrews 5:9; 7:25; 8:1; 9:12; 1 John 2:1; John 3:16)

The Personality and Ministry of the Holy Spirit

We believe that there is one true and living God; Creator of Heaven and earth; and that in the unity of the Godhead there are three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, equal in divine perfections and exercising distinct but harmonious operations in the great work of redemption. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 3:13-17)

Nature of Church

We believe that the church of Jesus Christ began during the earthly ministry of Jesus, and that it is composed solely of born-again people who have been called out from among the Jews and Gentiles. Christ, glorified in Heaven, is its Head and the Holy Spirit, on earth, is the active agent of the Godhead Who ever seeks to bring about conformity within its ranks, and obedience to the Word of God and the will of God. The church unites believers to each other, and all to Christ, and its chief purpose of existence is to proclaim the Gospel to the world. (Acts 2; Romans 1:16; Acts 15:14; Ephesians 5:23-24; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Mark 16:15; Acts 1:8)


We believe that two ordinances are significant above any other that Christians are commanded to observe, namely, water Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. While recognizing that water Baptism has no saving merit, it is our conviction that after one is saved, Baptism is the next step in order to portray to the world the believer’s union with Christ in His death, burial and resurrection. It is our conviction that the scriptural method of water Baptism is immersion. We believe that Jesus Christ instituted the Lord’s Supper to commemorate His death until He comes. We further believe that water Baptism by immersion is observed but once, and is a sign of identification, and a testimony to newness of life, but the Lord’s Supper is commemorative and is to be observed as a memorial of the broken body and the shed blood of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Matthew 3:13-17; 28:19; 1 Corinthians 11:23-33; Acts 3:31-38)

The Eternal State of the Saved and the Lost

We believe in Heaven and Hell: Heaven, the place of eternal conscious joy for all who receive Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour; Hell, the place of conscious punishment for all who reject Jesus Christ and those dying in their sin until the final judgment at which time death and Hell are cast into the Lake of Fire which is the place of eternal conscious punishment. (John 14:1-6; Psalm 16:11; Philippians 1:21, 23; Psalm 9:16; John 8:24; 11 Thessalonians 1:7-9; Revelation 20:10-15)


We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins. (Ephesians 2:8-10; John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19)

Eternal Security

We believe that salvation is an eternal state, that once truly secured cannot be lost. (John 5:24; 10:27-29; Romans 11:29; Philippians 1:6; Ephesians 4:13-14; 4:30; 1 Peter 1:3-5)

Separation and Sanctification

We believe that the Scripture clearly teaches non-conformity to the world for every believer; that born-again people should be separated from the world unto Christ; that it is clearly commanded by God to all believers to live lives of separation from all worldly and sinful practices and to be Holy as He is Holy.


We believe that God has given the church a great commission to proclaim the Gospel to all nations so that there might be a great multitude from every nation, tribe, ethnic group, and language group who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ. As ambassadors of Christ, we must use all available means to go to the foreign nations and not wait for them to come to us (Matthew 28:19 – 20; Mark 16:15; Luke 24:46-48; John 20:21; Acts 1:8; 11 Corinthians 5:20).

Marriage And Sexuality

We believe that the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman. (Genesis 2:24; Romans 7:2; 1 Corinthians 7:10; Ephesians 5:22-23). We believe that men and women are spiritually equal in position before God but that God has ordained distinct and separate spiritual functions for men and women in the home and the church. (Galatians 3:28; Colossians 3:18; 1 Timothy 2:8-15; 3:4-5, 12) We believe that God has commanded that no intimate sexual activity be engaged in outside of a marriage between a man and a woman. We believe that any form of homosexuality, transgenderism, lesbianism, bisexuality, bestiality, incest, fornication, adultery and pornography are sinful perversions of God’s gift of sex. We believe that God disapproves of and forbids any attempt to alter one’s gender by surgery or appearance. (Deut. 22:1-5).
