Statement of Faith

The Scriptures

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy and of supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and life.


The Nature of God

We believe in one sovereign God, existing in three persons: Father, Son & Holy Spirit, perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, unbounded in power and measureless in love; that God is the source of all creation and that through the immediate exercise of His power all things came into being.

The Father

We believe that God the Father is the author of eternal salvation, having loved the world and given His Son for its redemption.

The Son

We believe that Jesus the Messiah was eternally pre-existent and is co-equal with God the Father; that He took on Himself the nature of man through the virgin birth so that He possesses both divine and human natures. We believe in His sinless life and perfect obedience to the Law; in His atoning death, burial, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, high-priestly intercession and His personal return in power and glory.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son; that He was active in the creation of all things and continues to be so in providence; that He convicts the world of sin, righteousness and judgment, and that He regenerates, sanctifies, baptizes, indwells, seals, illumines, guides and bestows His gifts upon all believers.


Mankind & Atonement

We believe that God created man in His image; that because of the disobedience of our first parents at the Garden of Eden they lost their innocence and both they and their descendants, separated from God, suffer physical and spiritual death and that all human beings, with the exception of Jesus the Messiah, are sinners by nature and practice. We believe that Jesus the Messiah died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, as a representative and substitutionary sacrifice; that all who believe in Him are justified, not by any works of righteousness they have done, but by His perfect righteousness and atoning blood and that there is no other name under heaven by which we must be saved.


The People of God

We believe in the Covenantal promises—from the Abrahamic to the New Covenant—that our covenant-keeping God has fulfilled, is fulfilling, and will completely fulfill.

We believe that Israel exists as a covenant people through whom God continues to accomplish His purposes and that the Church is an elect people in accordance with the New Covenant, comprising both Jews and Gentiles who acknowledge Jesus as Messiah for the forgiveness of sin. Both share, without loss of national identity, in the spiritual promises, which God made to Israel, and are equal before God.


The Resurrection

We believe that Jesus the Messiah will return to establish God’s manifest kingdom on earth, to resurrect the dead and determine the eternal destiny of all men, eternally blessing the believers and eternally punishing the wicked.
