Statement of Faith

The Bible

We affirm that the Bible, comprised of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments, is the divinely inspired Word of God. Its teachings are the final authority for all matters of faith, doctrine, and conduct. (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:20-21)

The Godhead

We believe in one God, who exists eternally and manifests in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each member of the Godhead is equal in essence, power, and glory, yet distinct in function. God is infinite in love, perfect in judgments, and unchanging in righteousness and mercy. We believe that God not only created the world but also now upholds, sustains, governs, and providentially directs all that exists. He will bring all things to their proper consummation in Christ Jesus, to the glory of His name. (Deut. 6:4; Matt. 28:19; Ps. 136:1-3; Col. 1:16-17; Eph. 1:10-11)

God the Father

We believe in God the Father, the first person of the Trinity, who is eternal, omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent. The Father is the Creator of the heavens and the earth, who made mankind male and female in His own image. He is the source of all creation and exercises providential care over the universe. He listens to and answers prayer and administers discipline to those who are in Christ. (Gen. 1:26-27; Ps. 139:7-10; Isa. 46:9-10; Matt. 6:9; 1 Cor. 8:6; Heb. 12:5-11)

God the Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the second person of the Trinity, who is fully God and fully man. He is the Christ (Messiah) of Israel, prophesied in the Old Testament. Born of a virgin, He lived a sinless life, performed miracles, and accomplished signs and wonders. He died on the cross as the atonement for sin, was buried, and rose again on the third day according to the Scriptures. He ascended into heaven and is now seated at the right hand of the Father, where He intercedes on behalf of the saints. (Isa. 53:1-12; Matt. 1:18-25; 16:16; Luke 24:46-47; John 1:1-3, 14; Acts 1:9-11; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20-23; Heb. 7:25)

God the Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, who is co-equal and co-eternal with the Father and the Son. He convicts the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment, and He regenerates, sanctifies, and empowers all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus baptises believers in the Holy Spirit, in whom we are also sealed for the day of redemption. We believe the baptism in the Holy Spirit is evidenced by fruits of holy living and the operation of spiritual gifts, such as tongues, prophecies, and healing among others. (John 16:7-11; Acts 1:5; 1 Cor. 12:4-11; Gal. 5:22-23; Eph. 1:13-14; Eph. 4:30).


We believe salvation is by grace, through faith in Christ alone. We believe all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, and by Christ’s substitutionary atonement man can be saved. Upon faith in Christ, individuals are born again, justified, and indwelt by the Holy Spirit, who seals them until the day of redemption. The sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit enables believers to live lives pleasing to God as they grow in sanctification. (Eph. 2:8-9; Rom. 3:23; Rom. 5:8; 2 Cor. 5:21; John 3:3; Rom. 8:30; Eph. 1:13-14; 1 Thess. 4:3)

The Church

We believe in the spiritual unity and diversity of believers, encompassing both Jew and Gentile. The Ekklesia (which means “called-out ones”), serves as the New Testament continuation of the Old Testament congregation of Israel. It consists of Jewish believers in the Messiah, with Gentile believers grafted into the olive tree that is the commonwealth of Israel. As the Body of Christ on earth, the Church is entrusted with the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations, beginning with the people of Israel. The Church exists both as a local body of believers gathered for worship and discipleship as well as a global body united in Christ, advancing God’s Kingdom across the earth. (Eph. 2:11-22; Eph. 4:4-6; Rom. 11:17-24; Rom. 12:4-5; 1 Cor. 12:12-27; Gal. 3:28-29; Matt. 16:18; Matt. 28:19-20; Rev. 7:9-10)

Israel and the Jewish People

We believe in the Abrahamic covenant as an eternal covenant between God and Israel, including land, a righteous people, and the blessing of salvation to all nations through this covenant. We believe that all Israel will be saved at the end of the age. We also uphold the biblical mandate to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and for the salvation of the Jewish people. (Gen. 12:1-3; Rom. 11:25-27; Ps. 122:6)

Five-Fold Ministry

We believe in the five-fold ministry of apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers, given by Christ for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry and for building up the Church. These offices are operational today and are essential for the maturing and unity of the Church. We believe that women, no less than men, are called and gifted to undertake all works of the kingdom, serving equally in roles of leadership and ministry within the Body of Christ. (Eph. 4:11-16; 1 Cor. 12:27-31; Rom. 12:4-8; Gal. 3:28; Joel 2:28-29; Acts 2:17-18)


We believe in water baptism by full immersion and Communion (also known as the Lord’s Supper) as the two ordinances of the Church, to be observed until Christ’s return. While they are not a means of salvation, they serve as channels of God’s sanctifying grace and blessing to the faithful in Christ Jesus. We believe that the bread and wine in communion convey the real presence of Christ, uniting believers with Christ and His Body. (Rom. 6:3-4; Matt. 28:19; 1 Cor. 11:23-26; Matt. 26:26-28; 1 Cor. 10:16-17)

End of the Age

We believe in the literal and physical second coming of Christ at the end of this age, when He will return to earth personally and visibly to reign over the nations in His millennial kingdom. We believe that the Church will go through the Great Tribulation with great power and victory. Although no-one knows the exact timing of His return, we are commanded to know the times and the seasons, and await it with earnest expectation. We believe and pray for a great end-time harvest of souls, along with the emergence of a victorious Church, experiencing unprecedented unity, purity, and power through the work of the Holy Spirit. (Ps. 2:7–9, 22:27–28; Mt. 24:36; Jn. 14:12; 17:20–26; Rom. 11:25–32; 1 Cor. 15:20–28, 50–58; Eph. 4:11–16; Phil. 3:20–21; 1 Thes. 4:13–5:11; 2 Thes. 1:3–12; Rev. 7:9–14)


We believe in the physical resurrection of the dead; those who have died in Christ will rise to everlasting life, ultimately in the New Heaven and New Earth, while those who have died without Christ will face eternal judgment in the lake of fire. We believe that believers are immediately brought into the presence of Jesus upon death, enjoying conscious fellowship with Him until the day of resurrection, when they will receive eternal rewards and reside forever in blessed communion with the triune God. Conversely, unbelievers are relegated to hell upon their death, awaiting the Day of Judgment when they will be eternally separated from God’s presence in a state of conscious, unending torment. (Dan. 12:2; John 5:28-29; 2 Cor. 5:8; Phil. 1:23; Rev. 20:11-15; Rev. 21:1-4)
