Our Statement of Beliefs:


We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.


We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.


We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly and holy life.


We believe that the only way to eternal life is through maintaining an ongoing and personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
