The Bible
We believe that the Bible is God's only revealed message to mankind, given to bring responsive individuals to the obedience of faith. The Bible is our only authority and we teach that it should be read prayerfully and with care at every opportunity.

Acts 17v11, Romans 16v26, 2 Timothy 3v16-17, 2 Peter 1v20-21

 

God
There is only one eternal, immortal God. Jesus Christ is his only begotten son and the Holy Spirit is his power.

Isaiah 45v5-7, Luke 1v35, Acts 1v8, 1Corinthians 8v6, 1Timothy 1v17, 2v5

 

Man
Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin and the punishment for sin is death the end of all life.

Jerermiah 17v9, Mark 7v21-23, Romans 3v23, James 1v13-15, Romans 6v23, Ecclesiastes 9v5-10, Psalm 146v4

 

Jesus
In his love, God sent his son, the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life.

Matthew 1v20-21, 3v17, Luke 1v35, John 3v16

 

Hope
The only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God's kingdom on earth.

Psalm 49v12-20, John 11v25-26, Acts 24v15, Romans 8v22-39, 1 Corinthians 15v12,50, Revelation 5v10, 20v4

 

Sacrifice of Christ
Jesus was sinless. He died to show God's righteousness and to redeem those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority in heaven and on earth, and set him as the mediator between God and man.

Romans 3v21-26, Ephesians 1v19-23, 1 Timothy 2v5-6, Hebrews 4v14-16

 

Return of Jesus
Jesus will return to the earth soon. Then he will raise many of the dead, judge them with the living, and give his faithful followers everlasting life in the kingdom of God.

Daniel 12v2, Matthew 25v31-34, Luke 21v20-32, John 5v28-29, Acts 1v11, 2 Timothy 4v1, Revelation 22v12

 

Kingdom of God
The kingdom of God will be established on earth. Jesus will be king in Jerusalem, his dominion worldwide and his government will bring eternal righteousness and peace.

Psalm 72, Isaiah 2v2-4, 9v6-9, 11v1-9, 61, Jeremiah 3v17, Daniel 2v44, 7v14,27, Acts 3v21

 

The Promises
The Gospel is inseparable from the promises which God made to Abraham and David in Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfilment in Jesus Christ.

Genesis 13v14-17, 22v15-18, 2 Samuel 7v12,16, Luke 1v31-33, Galatians 3v6-9,16,26-29

 

The Way of Salvation
The way to enter the kingdom of God is by faith. This involves belief in the Bible and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptised and follow Jesus faithfully.

Matthew 16v24-27, Mark 16v16, John 3v3-5, Acts 2v37-38, 4v12, 1 Thessalonians 2v13, 2 Timothy 3v15, Hebrews 11v6
