Our Statement of Faith

The Bible as God's Word

We believe that the Bible, in its original writings, is God’s inspired Word—a written record of His supernatural revelation of Himself to humankind—and that it is without error in its assertions, complete in its revelation, and final in its logical conclusion. The Bible contains the whole truth. 2 Tim. 3:16-17; John 10:35; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Luke 24:25-27, 44, 45; 2 Peter 3:16.

The Trinity

We believe that there is only one God, eternally existing in three persons—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—who are each equally powerful and glorious, possessing the same essence and qualities, and deserving of worship from all people. Matt. 28:18-19; Mark 12:29; John 1:1, 14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Cor. 13:14;Heb. 1:1-3, Rev. 1:4-6.

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, took on human form while continuing to exist as God in order to rescue sinful humans (John 1:2,14; Luke 1:35). According to our understanding of the Scriptures (Rom. 3:24–25; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 2:24), the Lord Jesus Christ completed our redemption via His death on the cross in our place and ensured our justification through His actual, physical resurrection from the dead. His death made eternal life available as a gift to everyone who believes by making atonement for the sins (past, present, and future) of all people who believe.

The Sovereignity of God

We believe that God is totally sovereign and that it is His will for everyone to be saved and for no one to perish. 1 Tim. 2:4; 2 Thes. 2:13; 1 Pet. 1:2; 2 Pet. 3:9; John 6:64-65; Acts 10:34; 1 Cor. 1:21; Eph. 1:5-14; Rom. 8:29-30; 9:30-32.

The Sinful Nature of Man

We hold that every member of the human race is fallen, sinful, and lost, and that the Holy Spirit’s regeneration is absolutely necessary for human salvation. When someone accepts Christ as their Saviour, they are instantly regenerated, the Holy Spirit comes into them, and they are sealed until the day of redemption. Rom. 3:23; John 3:7; 1 Cor. 6:19; Eph. 1:13-14; Luke 24:49; Titus 3:5.


We believe salvation is based on God’s grace and is received through faith. Salvation is a free gift, and there is nothing that man can do to earn it. No matter how noble or well-intentioned, man’s efforts before or after salvation have nothing to do with obtaining eternal life. Nothing can be added to Christ’s finished work to further secure our salvation. Col. 2:13, Titus 3:5, Eph. 2:8-9, Gal. 2:16, Rom. 11:6, Rom. 3:22, and Rom. 11:6.

Christian Living

According to 1 John 1:6–7, those who have accepted Jesus into their hearts are entitled to walk in relationship with God as His children. The presence of sin in a Christian’s life hinders his relationship with God. When we confess our sins, 1 John 1:9, which promises forgiveness and purification, talks less about salvation and more about restoring a child of God to a position where he can once more walk in communion with God. 1 John 1:6–9; 2 Peter 1:5-8; Col. 1:10; John 15:8; Gal. 5:22; 1 Corinthians 11:31–31.

Eternal Punishment or Reward

According to our beliefs, both the saved and the lost will rise from the dead—the former to eternal life, the latter to conscious eternal punishment. Rev. 20:5–15; Dan. 12:2; 1 Thess. 4:13–18; and Matt. 25:41.


We hold that Satan is the originator of sin, that he makes an effort to keep us apart from God, and that both he and his angels will experience eternal punishment. Ezek. 28:15–17, Isa. 14:12–10, Rev. 20:10–41, and Matt. 25:41.


We firmly believe that grace, not the law, is what saves the true child of God and is what corrects him. Romans 6:14–15, 11:6–11, and 2 Corinthians 3:17.
