The Doctrinal Basis

The absolute truth of God inspired Holy Scripture both Old and New Testament originally given as the Word of God. It’s teaching and authority are absolute, supreme and final as the only infallible rule in every matter of faith and life.

The Trinity in the unity of the Godhead - one living and true God, existing in Three Persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, co - equal in power and glory.

The Sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption, revealed in the Lordship of Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man.

The personality and deity of the Lord Jesus Christ, the only incarnate Son of God, begotten of the Holy Spirit, His virgin birth, His perfect and sinless humanity, truly God and truly man yet one person forever; His atoning sacrifice of death, bodily resurrection and ascension to the throne of God, from whence He will return in glory for judgment and triumphant reign.

The personality and deity of the Holy Spirit, the source and power of all acceptable worship and service, the author and the interpreter of the infallible Word of God, who  convicts, regenerates, indwells and sanctifies all true believers.          

Salvation from the penalty of sin and justification only by the grace of God through repentance and faith in Christ alone, who is the one sacrifice for sin.

The resurrection and eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the conscious eternal punishment of those who reject the Lord Jesus Christ as their only Saviour.
