Spiritual Truth You Can Depend On

Beliefs


A Fundamental Truth – There exists one, and only one, omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent God. God has revealed Himself to us in three persons; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, and while three in person, God remains singularly God.

A Fundamental Truth – God acts, at His own discretion, either directly through divine intervention or indirectly by His divine providence to preserve His creation for the satisfaction of His purposes, and His glory.

A Fundamental Truth – God created man,(and woman), in His perfect spiritual image. They were created without sin to be the stewards of creation. They fell from grace by disobedience to the command of God which places all men, (and women), in a fallen, separated relational state called sin.

A Fundamental Truth – Regardless of however improbable it may appear to mortal man, the Bible is true and accurate at all points. Both the Old Testament and the New Testament are Holy Scripture and inerrant in their content.

A Fundamental Truth – God has preserved by His providence, the 66 books of the Christian Bible as the complete, divine revelation of His written Word to us.

A Fundamental Truth – The canon of Scripture is closed. By the life, teachings and person of Christ Jesus, God’s final revelation to us is concluded until the return of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

A Fundamental Truth – We all have fallen short of the standard of God’s perfection and are, therefore, all in need of a Saviour to make us acceptable in the sight of God.

A Fundamental Truth – Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ of God, was virgin born by the power of the Holy Spirit to provide the path of salvation. He lived a perfect life and became sin for us at His sacrifice on the cross at Calvary. Jesus is very God of very God, and very man, of man.

A Fundamental Truth – Jesus was crucified under Pontius Pilate, buried in a tomb, spent three days and nights in the grave and then rose again on the third day. He ascended to Heaven bodily and now sits enthroned at the right hand of God, the Father.

A Fundamental Truth – The only hope of our salvation lives in Christ Jesus. That there is no mediator between God and man except Christ Jesus and we are granted salvation entirely and completely, once and for always, by the gift of God’s grace to us by our faith in in the person of our Lord Jesus Christ.

A Fundamental Truth – Christ will return to the earth to claim, first those who have fallen asleep in Him, and then those of us who are left and are found in Him. On the last day, Christ will judge the quick and the dead.

A Fundamental Truth – Those who believe in our Lord, Jesus Christ will demonstrate that belief through their actions and though our salvation is not by works but by faith alone; Baptism represents the first outward sign of obedience and makes our initial declaration, before the world, of our commitment to Jesus Christ and the doctrine of the Bible.

A Fundamental Truth – We, within the body of believers, (the church), have no right to judge the world, but we do have a responsibility to discern right actions and intentions among those who claim Christ as their saviour and that these discernments stem from the principles found in the Holy Scriptures.

A Fundamental Truth – We, the saved, are the ambassadors of Christ on earth and as such should live apart from the usual and accepted ways of the world. We are to live in such a way that we honor Jesus Christ and God, the eternal Father. Apostasy and worldly ambition are to be guarded against as we strive to be useful vessels of clay in the hands of our loving God.
