(A) The Holy Scriptures

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the verbally and plenary inspired Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible and God-breathed, and therefore are the Final Authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. We believe the Word of God has been divinely preserved, and infallibly correct in the Authorized King James Version, therefore, the King James Version shall be the official and only translation used by the Church. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 12:6-7; Revelation 22:18-19; John 17:17)

(B) The Godhead

We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – each co-eternal in being, co-identical in nature, co-equal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26; I John 5:7)

(C) The Person and Work of Jesus Christ

  1. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of a virgin, in order that He might reveal God and redeem sinful men. (Isaiah 7:14, 9:6; Luke 1:35; John 1:1-2, 14; II Corinthians 5:19-21; Galatians 4:4-5; Philippians 2:5-8)
  2. We believe the Lord Jesus Christ accomplished our redemption through His death on the cross as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice; that our justification is made sure by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead. (Acts 2:18-36; Romans 3:24-25; I Peter 2:24; Ephesians 1:7; I Peter 1:3-5)
  3. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ ascended to Heaven and applied His own blood to the mercy seat. He is now exalted at the right hand of God, where, as our High Priest, He fulfills the ministry of Representative, Intercessor, and Advocate. (Acts 1:9-10; Hebrews 9:24; 7:25; Romans 8:34; I John 2:1-2)

(D) The Person and Work of the Holy Spirit

  1. We believe that the Holy Spirit is a Person who convicts the world of sin, of righteousness, and of judgement; and, that He is the Supernatural Agent in regeneration, baptizing all believers into the body of Christ, indwelling and sealing them unto the day of redemption. (John 16:8-11; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-14; II Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians1:13-14)
  2. We believe that the Holy Spirit is the Divine Teacher who assists believers to understand and appropriate the Scriptures, and that it is a privilege and duty of all the saved to be filled with the Spirit. (Ephesians 1:17-18; 5:18; I John 2:20, 27)

(E) The Total Depravity of Man

We believe that man was created in the image and likeness of God, but in Adam’s sin the human race fell, inherited a sinful nature, and became alienated from God. Man is totally depraved, and under just condemnation to eternal punishment in Hell without defense or excuse; and, that man, of himself, is utterly unable to remedy his lost condition. (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 3:22-23; 5:12; 6:23; Ephesians 2:1-3; 4:17-19)

(F) Salvation

  1. We believe that salvation is a gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for forgiveness of our sins. (John 1:12; Ephesians 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19; Romans 10:9-13)
  2. We believe that faith is the condition for salvation. Saving faith is when one turns to the Saviour for eternal life. Saving faith is not a meritorious work wherein to boast, but rather a humbling acknowledgement of sin and a simple accepting of the gift of salvation made possible by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. (Luke 24:47; I Peter 1:3-5; Hebrews 9:22; Romans 6:23)
  3. We believe that salvation is instantaneous and not a process and that in the new birth the one who was dead in trespasses and sin is made a partaker of the Divine Nature and receives eternal life, which is a free gift from God. The Holy Spirit seals each believer at the moment he receives Christ as personal Saviour. (John 3:3; II Corinthians 5:16; I John 5:1; John 3:6-7; II Peter 1:4; Colossians 2:13)

(G) The Eternal Security and Assurance of the Believer

  1. We believe that all those who are born-again are kept by God’s power and are thus secure in Christ forever. (John 6:37-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:1, 38-39; I Corinthians 1:4-8; I Peter 1:4-5)
  2. We believe that it is a privilege of believers to rejoice in the assurance of their salvation through the testimony of God’s Word, which, however, clearly forbids the use of Christian liberty as an occasion to the flesh. (Romans 13:13-14; Galatians 5:13; Titus 2:11-15)

(H) Baptism

We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water as an outward expression of the person’s belief in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Saviour. We believe that baptism has no part in the salvation of any person, but is done in obedience to the command of Jesus Christ after a person receives Christ as Saviour. (Acts 8:26-39; Acts 2:41; Romans 6:3-5; Matthew 28:19-20; Colossians 2:12)

(I) Separation

We believe that all the saved should live in such a manner as not to bring reproach upon their Saviour and Lord; and that separation from all religious apostasy, all worldly and sinful pleasures, practices, and associations is commanded of God. (Romans 12:1-2; 14:13; II Corinthians 6:14 – 7:1; II Timothy 3:1-5; I John 2:15-17; II John 9-11)

(J) The Personality of Satan

We believe that Satan is a person, the author of sin and the cause of the fall of mankind; that he is the open and declared enemy of God and man; and, that he shall be eternally punished in the Lake of Fire. (Job 1:6-7; Isaiah 14: 12-17; Matthew 4:2-11; 25:41; Revelation 20:10)
