We believe that on the cross Jesus suffered and died once and for all in the place of sinners, bearing their guilt, sin and punishment, paying the price for their rebellion and reconciling them to God. By His death, Jesus overcame the power of the devil and ensured the ultimate defeat of the forces of evil.
We believe that salvation is assured for all who by grace repent of their sins, acknowledge that Jesus died for them and personally accept Him through faith as Lord and Saviour. We believe that He is the only Mediator between God and humanity and that salvation is found through no one else.
We believe that all Christians are called and commissioned by Christ to share the good news of salvation, to make disciples and to undertake acts of service to those in need. Although reconciliation between people and with creation is not the same as reconciliation with God, we believe that the gospel compels Christians to work for peace and social justice.
We believe that Christ established one holy, universal Church which is His body and of which He is the head. The Church visible on earth is the imperfect expression of the invisible Church, which comprises all true believers of every time and place.
We believe that in the last days Jesus Christ will return visibly and personally. The dead will be raised and, with all those still living, will face divine judgment. Christ will pronounce God’s just condemnation on those who have rejected Him and receive the redeemed to eternal glory.
Thanks be to God.
