Statement of Faith


  1. The Canon of Scripture consists of the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament.

  2. The Bible, as originally given, is the fully inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God. It is the final authority on all matters of faith and conduct. (2Tim 3:15-17; 2Pet 1:19, 21; 2Tim 2:15)

  3. The infallible rule as to the interpretation of Scripture is Scripture itself.  (Matt 22:29; 2Pet 1:20,21;  Acts 15:15-16)


  1. There is only one true and living God. (Deut 6:4; Jer 10:10)

  2. God is Triune, eternally co-existing co-equally in three persons: God the Father and God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. These three are one God.  (John 6:27, Heb 1:8, Acts 5:3-4, John 15:26, 2Cor 13:14, Matt 28:19)

  3. The Scriptures teach the full deity and true humanity of the Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, sinless life, atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into Heaven, and His future personal, physical and visible, triumphant return. (Col 2:9, Philippians 2:5-11, Isa 7:14, Matt1:18, Luke 1:27-37, 2Cor 5:21, 1Pet 2:22, Heb 2:17, 1 Pet 1:3, 1Cor 15:20; Acts 1:9-11, Heb 1:3, Luke 22:69, 1Pet 3:22, Rev 19:11-21:8)

  4. The first people, Adam and Eve, were specially created by God, and all other men and women are their descendants. Adam’s sin brought God’s curse on their dominion and on mankind, culminating in separation from God and resulting in death (both physical and spiritual) as the natural and proper consequence of sin. (Gen 1:27, Gen 2:22, Gen 3:20, Gen 2:16, Gen 3:6-7, Gen 3:14-19, Rom 8:20-22, Rom 5:12-19, 1Cor 15:21; Rom 6:23)

  5. Adam was the representative head of Mankind. We are sinners, innately due to Adam’s sin and by personal choice and are therefore subject to God’s wrath and condemnation. (Rom 5:12-19, 1Cor 15:21)

  6. Salvation is of the Lord. It is by God’s grace we are saved through faith, not by good works. (Jonah 2:9, Hab 2:4; Eph 2: 8,9)

  7. There can be no salvation for fallen mankind except through the penal substitutionary death of the Lord Jesus Christ on the cross. (Eph 1:7, Eph 2:13, Col 1:14, Col 1:20, Heb 9:22, Rev 1:5, Rev 5:9)

  8. By the Grace of God people are enabled to repent of their sin, trust in Christ as saviour and Lord, depend on his finished work and are indwelt by the Holy Spirit who works in them to bring them more and more in to conformity to the image of Christ. (John 16:8, 1John 1:9, Rom 10:9-13, John 3:6-8, 1Cor 6:19, 2Cor 3:18, 1Pet 1:2)

  9. Those who receive salvation through Christ have everlasting life with God, whereas those who do not accept this salvation, continue in their rebellion against God and will be consigned to the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels. (Dan 12:2, John 6:47, Matt25:31-46, Rev 20:11-15)

  10.   Scripture expressly explains all things necessary for our salvation.  (2Tim 3:15)


  1. In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth. (Gen 1:1, John 1:3)

  2. Genesis teaches that the Universe and all things in it were supernaturally created by God in six consecutive literal days; the seventh day immediately followed the previous six and was also a literal day. In those seven days there was no death, disease, suffering or sin. God’s Creation was perfect. Death, disease and suffering exist as a consequence of Adam’s sin. (Gen 1:3-5, 6-8, 9-13, 14-18, 20-23, 24-31, Gen 2:2, Gen 2:16-17, Gen 3:6, 17, Rom 5:12-19,  1Cor 15:21)

  3. God created each distinct kind of creature which could reproduce only within their kinds. (Gen 1:24)

  4. Adam and Eve were the first human beings created by God and all other humans are their descendants. (1Cor 15:45, Gen 3:20)

  5. During the time of Noah there was a catastrophic global flood  covering the entire face of the earth. (Gen 7:19-20, Gen 8:9)

  6. The historical events at the Tower of Babel described in Genesis 11 account for the worldwide dispersal of mankind and the origins of nations and languages. (Gen 11:6-9)

  7. Creation portrays God’s invisible qualities, His eternal power and divine nature, so that man is without excuse.  Nevertheless, the knowledge thus attainable is by itself insufficient to enable anyone to secure personal salvation. (Rom 1:20, 2Pet 1:3, 2 Tim 3:14-16)

  8. Knowledge and/or truth cannot be dichotomised into secular and religious. (Mark 12:30)
