What we believe

There is one true God: holy, eternal, infinite, unchangeable, sovereign and almighty; who is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, distinct persons yet one substance, equal in glory and power and co-eternal. Deuteronomy 6 v 4, 1 John 5 v 7

The Bible is the inerrant Word of God, written by men as inspired by God the Holy Spirit. It is the only standard from which sound doctrine can be drawn, by which religious experience may be tested, and by which our lives should be governed. 2 Timothy 3 v 16, 2 Peter 1 v 21. We also believe that the most accurate and reverent English translation is the King James Version (the Authorised Version).

God created the earth and the universe in six days, as stated in the Bible account. On the sixth day of creation God created man, male and female (Adam and Eve), from whom all mankind is descended. Genesis 1 v 1, John 1 v 1 & 2

God made man sinless; yet because Adam and Eve sinned, they and all mankind through them have become sinners, deserving God's just punishment for ever. Romans 3 v 23; Romans 5 v 12-21.

The divine Son of God was made Man (the Lord Jesus Christ) to take the punishment due to God's elect people and to satisfy holy justice, in order to save His people. He gave His life for their life that they might have eternal life, which they receive through the Holy Spirit, Who works God's grace in the soul of every believer. Luke 1 v 35, John 1 v 12 & 13, 2 Corinthians 5 v 21, Ephesians 2 v 8, Colossians 2 v 13 & 14, Hebrews 9 v 26 & 28, 1 Peter 1 v 18-21.

All guidance on moral and ethical issues, including the sanctity of life, is to be found in the Bible. 2 Timothy 3 v 16 & 17.
