- About the Scriptures
We believe… the Scriptures are inspired by God and declare his design and plan for mankind.
- About God
We believe… there is only One True God revealed in three persons…Father, Son and Holy Spirit (commonly known as the Trinity).
- About Humanity
We believe… though originally good, man willingly fell to sin ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.
- About Salvation
We believe… every person can have restored fellowship with God through ‘Salvation’ (accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin).
- About the Church
We believe… the church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe ‘the Church’ is the Body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption (regardless of religious denomination) through the sacrificial death of his son Jesus Christ.
