The Scripture

We believe that the 66 books of the Bible which comprise the Old and New Testaments (Genesis to Revelation) are the only inspired and authoritative Scriptures to mankind. The Scriptures speak with a unique authority and are therefore the sola fide regula (sole rule of faith) in the Christian life.

 

God

We affirm that there is one, everlasting and true God who is a tri-unity of persons. God the Father from whom all blessings flow. The Son through whom and for whom all things were made. The Holy Spirit who is God’s personal and transforming presence.

 

Salvation

We believe that the only ground for humanity’s acceptance by God is the work of Jesus, God’s Son, on the cross. Jesus died for us to redeem us from the curse of sin, rose from the dead to vindicate his claim of Lordship, ascended to the right hand of God’s throne in heaven, and now has poured out the Holy Spirit on all who believe in Christ. We affirm that salvation is by grace through faith alone, but produces a life of benevolent service to others.
