Our Identity

Our Beliefs

  • The Bible

    We believe that the Bible is the infallible, unfailing Word of God. It was inspired by the Holy Spirit and written through Spirit-empowered people as God’s revelation of Himself to man.

    We believe that the Bible is the final and absolute authority for Christian belief and behaviour. Unique and unequalled in power and authority, the Bible is the supreme standard by which all human conduct and opinions must be tried.

    2 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 4:12, 2 Peter 1:20–21

  • God

    We believe in one true and living God who exists eternally in unity as three equal persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Godhead, while having distinct and complementary roles, have exactly the same nature, essence and being.

    *We believe in one God the Father almighty, maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible.

    We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, born of the Father before all ages. God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, being of the same essence as the Father. Through Him, all things were made. For us and for our salvation, He came down from heaven; he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary and was made human. He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate, suffered and was buried. On the third day, He rose again, according to the Scriptures, ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He shall come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom shall have no end.

    We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of life, who spoke through the prophets. He proceeds from the Father and the Son, and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.

  • Humanity

    We believe that God created humanity, male and female, in His own image as the crowning work of His creation. Humanity was created free from sin but sinned against God by their own choice, bringing sin and death into the world. All human beings are separated from God and under the power of sin and death, and are in desperate need of salvation through Jesus Christ.Genesis 1:27,

    Romans 5:12–15

  • Salvation

    We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, was buried, and rose again securing salvation for all who repent and trust in Him.

    We believe that salvation is in Christ alone, by grace alone, through faith in Him alone. The moment one puts their faith in Jesus, they receive the gift of eternal life, are declared righteous before God, and are adopted into the family of God.

    John 14:6, Romans 5:1–2, 1 Corinthians 15:3–4, Ephesians 1:5–6

  • Baptism and Communion

    We believe that Christian baptism is the public declaration of a believer’s repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. This act of obedience identifies the believer with Christ in His death, burial, and resurrection through immersion in water.

    We believe that communion as commanded by Jesus symbolizes the new covenant inaugurated in His blood. Communion is the coming together of believers to commemorate the Lord’s death until He returns.

    Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:3–5, Matthew 26:26–29, 1 Corinthians 11:23–27

  • The Church

    We believe that each person who has accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour is made part of the universal church, the body of Christ, whose head is Jesus Christ Himself. Each local church is an expression of the universal church.

    We believe that belonging to a local church is essential for all believers; for worship, teaching, prayer, fellowship, and discipleship.

    We believe that the local church is the primary vehicle for the fulfilling of Jesus’ command to make disciples of all nations.

    Matthew 16:18, Matthew 28:18–20, Ephesians 1:22–23, 1 Timothy 3:15, Hebrews 10:25

  • Eternity

    We believe that God, in His own time, will bring the present age to an end.

    We believe in the glorious, visible and personal return of Jesus Christ to the earth.

    We believe in the bodily resurrection of the dead, and that Christ will judge as the righteous Judge.

    We believe that all who have rejected salvation in Christ will spend eternity in everlasting punishment in hell.

    We believe that all who have received salvation in Christ will spend eternity with God in the new heavens and new earth.

    Matthew 28:20, 1 Corinthians 15:20–23, 1 Thessalonians 4:14–18, Revelation 21:1–8
