As expressed in our constitution, the Church believes:
- That the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writings are the fully inspired and authoritative word of God and accepts them as the final authority for faith and life.
- In one God eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- That the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures, and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
- In the bodily Resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Ascension into heaven, and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
- That the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances – Baptism and Communion to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith.
- That Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a confession of identification with Christ in burial and resurrection, and that Communion is the partaking of bread and wine as symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood, in remembrance of His sacrificial death till He comes.
- In the priesthood of all believers.
- In the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
