Statement of Faith
The following statement sets out our Christian beliefs:
The sovereignty and grace of the true God, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
The Divine inspiration and infallibility of the Old and New Testaments as originally given and their subsequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The univeral sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God's wrath and condemnation and the super abounding love of God in Jesus Christ, providing free salvaion to all who believe.
The substitutionary sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, as the sole and all sufficiant ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin and from its eternal consequence.
The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ who was crucified and bodily raised from the dead.
The illumination, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.
The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal church. The body of which Christ is the Head, and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the gospel throughout the world
The expectation of the personal visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
In all our work we will seek to reflect the love and grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, doing everything as unto the Lord. This Christ-like behaviour should be evidenced amongst ourselves and amongst those we seek to reach with the good news of Jesus. We will value each other within the ministry and will also seek to co-operate with others doing similar work, and value their ministry.
