Summary of Beliefs

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God's only revealed message to mankind, given to bring responsive individuals to the obedience of faith. The Bible is our only authority and we teach that it should be read prayerfully and with care at every opportunity.
Rom 16:26; Acts 17:11; 2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:20-21

God

There is only one eternal, immortal God. Jesus Christ is his only begotten son and the Holy Spirit is his power.
Isa 45:5-7; 1 Tim 1:17; Luke 1:35; Acts 1:8; 1 Cor 8:6

Man

Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin and the punishment for sin is death - the end of life.
Job 4:17; Rom 3:23; Jer 17:9; Mark 7:21-23; James 1:13-15; Rom 6:23; Eccl 9:5-10; Psa 146:4

Jesus

In his love, God sent his son, the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life.
Luke 1:35; Matt 1:20-21; 3:17; John 3:16

Hope

The only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God's kingdom on the earth.

Sacrifice of Christ

Jesus was sinless. He died to show God's righteousness and to redeem those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority in heaven and on earth, and set him as the mediator between God and man.
Eph 1:19-23; 1 Tim 2:5-6; Heb 4:14-16; Rom 3:21-26

Return Of Jesus

Jesus will return to the earth soon. Then he will raise many from the dead, judge them along with those still living, and give his faithful followers everlasting life in the kingdom of God.
Acts 1:11; Rev 22:12; Luke 21:20-32; John 5:28-29; Dan 12:2; 2 Tim 4:1; Matt 25:31-34

Kingdom of God

The kingdom of God will be established on earth. Jesus will be king in Jerusalem, his dominion worldwide and his government will bring eternal righteousness and peace.
Dan 2:44; 7:27; Acts 3:21; Jer 3:17; Isa 2:2-4; Psa 72; Dan 7:14; Isa 9:6-9; 11:1-9; 61:1-11

The Promises

The Gospel is inseparable from the promises which God made to Abraham and David in Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfilment in Jesus Christ.
Gal 3:6-9,16,26-29; Gen 13:14-17; 22:15-18; 2 Sam 7:12-16; Luke 1:31-33

The Way of Salvation

The way to enter the kingdom of God is by faith. This involves belief in the Bible and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptised and follow Jesus faithfully.
