This page is a more formal version of what we believe. It is a document which shows how we understand our relation to God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. It was put together to document the beliefs of the church and should be understood as such.

THE STATEMENT OF DOCTRINES AND PRACTICES
  1. THE Divine Inspiration, Authority and Sufficiency of the Holy Scriptures.
  2. THE Unity of the Godhead, with the distinction of Persons in that Unity, namely the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, to whom equal honour is due.
  3. THAT
    1. the Son of God truly became man, being begotten of the Holy Spirit, and born of the Virgin Mary.
    2. His Death was a sacrifice to God and a propitiation for the remission of sins.
    3. He was raised from the dead.
    4. He ascended to the right hand of God, and is now the all-sufficient High Priest of His People.
    5. He will come again to receive them unto Himself, and to set up His Kingdom.
  4. THAT in consequence of the fall of Adam, all mankind became “lost”, “without strength” and at “enmity against God”
  5. THAT the Holy Spirit's work is necessary in regeneration and sanctification.
  6. THAT
    1. the justification of the sinner before God is by personal faith in Christ alone.
    2. every justified one is also born of God.
    3. such new birth results in and is made evident by holiness of life and good works.
  7. THAT
    1. at death the spirit of man does not cease to exist, or become unconscious.
    2. the dead will be raised either to life or to condemnation: and that the blessedness of the righteous and the punishment of the unrighteous will be alike eternal.
  8. THE gathering together in the Name of the Lord of His people as a local Church of God recognising Christ alone as Head, and not being in any way federated to any other such church meeting in any other place.
  9. THE customary observance of the ordinance of Believer's Baptism by immersion on personal confession of faith, and the commemoration of the Lord's death in the Breaking of Bread on the first day of the week in so far as circumstances allow.
  10. THE conduct of meetings for worship under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, with opportunity for the exercise in the assembly of all true gifts for edification subject to the Lordship of Christ.
  11. THE conduct of meetings for the preaching of the Gospel, and for the ministry of the Word of God to both old and young.
