What We Believe

What We Believe

The fol­low­ing doc­tri­nal basis summarises our key points of belief:

  • The divine inspi­ra­tion and infal­li­bil­ity of Holy Scrip­ture as orig­i­nally given and its supreme author­ity in all mat­ters of faith and conduct.
  • The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
  • The uni­ver­sal sin­ful­ness and guilt of human­ity since the fall, ren­der­ing men and women sub­ject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
  • The con­cep­tion of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and his birth by the Vir­gin Mary. Redemp­tion from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only though the sac­ri­fi­cial death, as our rep­re­sen­ta­tive and sub­sti­tute, of Jesus Christ, the incar­nate Son of God.
  • The bod­ily res­ur­rec­tion of Jesus Christ from the dead.
  • The neces­sity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effec­tive in the indi­vid­ual sin­ner, grant­ing him or her repen­tance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ.
  • The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
  • The expec­ta­tion of the per­sonal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
