Statement of Faith
Last updated: 5th September 2015
To take all such means as thought desirable for promulgating and spreading the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and without limiting the generality of the foregoing:
The divine inspiration, authority and sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures as all that is necessary for faith and life.
(Psalm 19:7-11; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:10-12; 2 Peter 1:20-21)
The unity of the Godhead with the distinction of Persons in that unity namely the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit to Whom equal honour is due.
(Genesis 1:2, 26; Deuteronomy 6:4; John 1:1, 2; 5:17, 22-23; 14:25-26; 16:7, 27, 28; Philippians 2:6; Hebrews 1:1-3)
a ) That the Son of God truly became man being begotten of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
(Matthew 1:20-25; Luke 1:35; John 1:14; Romans 8:3; Galatians 4:4)
b ) That His death was a sacrifice to God and a turning away of God’s wrath for the remission of sins.
(Romans 4:25; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 9:24-28; 10:12-14)
c ) That He was raised bodily from the dead.
(Matthew 28:5-7; 1 Corinthians 15:20)
d ) That He ascended to the right hand of God and is now the all-sufficient High Priest of His people.
(Mark 16:19, 20; Luke 24:50, 51; Acts 1:9; Ephesians 4:8-10; Hebrews 4:14-16; 7:25)
e) That He will come again to receive his people unto Himself and to consummate His Kingdom.
(Isaiah 9:6, 7; Daniel 2:44, 45; 7:13, 14; John 14:3; 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18; Luke 1:32, 33)
That in consequence of the fall of Adam, all mankind became “lost” and at “enmity against God”; that all mankind is also “without strength” to do the will of God.
(Psalm 53:2, 3; Luke 19:10; Romans 3:19; 5:6; 12-19; 8:5-7)
The work of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, sanctification and assurance.
(John 3:5-8; 16:8-11; Titus 3:4-7; 2 Thessalonians 2:13, 14; 1 Peter 1:2)
a) That the justification of the sinner before God is by faith alone.
(Romans 3:21-26; 4:4, 5; 5:1; Galatians 2:16)
b) That every justified one is united to Christ and also born of God.
(John 1:12, 13; James 1:18; 1 Peter 1:23)
c) That such new birth results in and is made evident by holiness of life and good works.
(Ephesians 2:10; 4:24; Titus 3:4-8)
d) That holiness of life and good works are summed up in the law of love for God and neighbour.
(Matthew 22:36-39; Galatians 5:14; James 2:8)
e) That love restricts sexual intimacy to the marriage union of a man and a woman for life to the exclusion of all others; and love values all human life as sacred and defends and protects it from conception through to natural death
(Marriage: Genesis 2:24; 1 Corinthians 6:9-20; Human Life: (Genesis 1:26- 27; Psalm 139)
a) That with the bodily resurrection and ascension of Christ and the sending of His Spirit, the resurrection age has begun
(Matthew 28:16-20; Acts 2:14-36)
b) That through their union to Christ in the Spirit, believers participate now in the resurrection age by faith.
(2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 3:1)
c) That believers live also in this age of sin and death, and groan along with the whole creation as they wait eagerly for adoption to sonship, the redemption of their bodies.
(Romans 8:9-23; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Colossians 3:1)
d) That at the end of this age the dead will be raised either to life or to condemnation and that the blessedness of the righteous and the punishment of the unrighteous will be alike eternal.
(Daniel 12:2; Matthew 25:46; 1 Corinthians 15:51-57; Acts 17:31; Romans 14:9-10; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Philemon 3:20-21; Revelations 20:11-15)
We believe that the true church is that which is gathered around Christ in heaven, and all who share in Christ are united in sitting under the authority of His Word irrespective of denomination or class group: “All One in Christ Jesus”.
The ladies who shared their experiences made the Christian walk very real. It was encouraging to hear that God is gracious and faithful in the midst of seemingly impossible situations, as we all experience from time to time. The Q&A allowed audience participation and provided practical advice and feedback. Great music!
