DOCTRINAL BELIEFS

WE BELIEVE:

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments;

The Trinity of the Godhead;

The creation of man by the direct act of God;

The fall of man and his need for redemption;

The Deity, Incarnation and Virgin Birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ;

Jesus Christ’s vicarious atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross;

The resurrection of Jesus Christ’s body from the tomb;

Jesus Christ’s ascension into heaven;

Jesus Christ’s personal, imminent return;

The Deity of the Holy Spirit;

Justification of the believer by grace through faith;

A literal devil who is our adversary;

A literal heaven for the redeemed and a literal hell for the lost;

The infallible rule of interpretation of Scripture to be Scripture itself.
