Statement of Faith

We believe that both Old and New Testaments constitute the divinely inspired Word of God in the original languages and manuscripts

We believe in one God existing eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, became man without ceasing to be God, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men.

We believe that the Holy Spirit came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement; and to regenerate, sanctify, comfort and seal those who believe in Jesus Christ.

We believe that man is totally deprived in that of himself he is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition.

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 atoning blood was shed on the cross for the forgiveness of sins.

We believe in the water baptism of believers, symbolizing the believer's union in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

We believe in the observance of the Lord's Supper, commemorating the sacrifice of our Saviour for all humanity.

We believe the life of the believer is to be separate from the world by consistent conduct before God and man, and is to be in the world as life-giving light.

We believe in the personal, visible, and bodily return of the Lord Jesus Christ.


Ministry

Jesus said to His disciples. "Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you and ordained you." Every man contemplating the Gospel ministry as his life work should make sure he has been called of God. He should not choose the ministry as he would a profession or trade, for if he does he will neither be happy nor successful.

The minister must not suppose that mere training or knowledge will properly equip him to do the work of a minister, but he must remember that only after the disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit did they speak the Word of God with boldness. Let every man wait before God until he receives a definite directive for his life's work.
