What We Believe


About the Bible

We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and the final authority on all matters of faith. (2 Timothy 3:16; Hebrews 4:12-13; Romans 15:4)

About God

We believe in one God who created all things and who exists in three persons (Trinity): Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Genesis 1:1; Acts 17:24-28:  Matthew 3:16-17; John 14:9-10)

About Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s Son and was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, was resurrected from death, and ascended to heaven where he sits at the Father’s right hand.  We believe that Jesus will come again to claim his bride, the church.  (John 3:16; Matthew 1:18; Romans 5:6-11; John 20:24-31)

About the Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit dwells within all believers, empowering our lives with his presence and power to live a godly life and accomplish God’s will.  (John 16:5-15;  Romans 8:10-11; 1 Cor. 3:16)

About Sin

We believe that man wilfully sinned against God and is therefore lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.  (Romans 3:23; 1 John 1:7; Acts 4:12)

About Death

We believe that death seals the eternal destiny of each person.  The saved will inherit eternal life whereas the unsaved will be eternally separated from God.  (Romans 8:9-14; Daniel 12:2; John 6:47)

About Salvation

We believe that salvation (eternal life in heaven) comes by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ (his death on the cross).  (Matthew 26:28; Romans 5:8-11; Romans 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9)

About Receiving Christ

We believe the Biblical pattern for receiving Christ includes acknowledging that Jesus Christ is God’s Son, repenting from personal sin, and inviting Christ to be Lord of your life.  (1 John 1:8-9; Romans 6:1-7)

About the Church

We believe that the church is the body and bride of Christ and consists of Christians everywhere.  (Matthew 16:13-18; Acts 2:14-47)

About Baptism, Communion, and Dedications

We believe in water baptism by immersion for those who have accepted Christ as their Saviour.  We practice regular observance of communion as a means of remembering Christ’s sacrifice and death on the cross.  We perform child dedications to acknowledge the parents’ desire to raise their child in the ways and instruction of the Lord.  (Matthew 3:13-17; Matthew 28:19-20; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Proverbs 22:6)
