Our Essential Beliefs
We are committed to the historic Christian faith as handed down to us by the apostles and preserved for us in Scripture. We seek to be entirely Biblical without arrogant dogmatism. We live by the motto: "In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, love"
The Authority of the Bible The Bible is a divine product of the Spirit of God working in and through the human authors. The Bible is true in all that it intends to say and is the reliable and authoritative guide for our faith.
The Trinity of God God is three persons, each person is fully God, there is one God.
The Reality of Sin All of humanity is infected with sin by inheritance and by practice and as a result is condemned before God apart from Christ.
The Person of Christ Jesus Christ is fully God and fully human existing in one person. He is the God-man.
The Work of Christ Jesus died as our innocent substitute to satisfy both the justice and the love of God.
The Way of Salvation Salvation is God's grace enabling us to place our trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of our sins.
The Return of Christ Jesus Christ will return bodily to earth a second time to set up an eternal, perfect and physical kingdom.
