STATEMENT OF FAITH The Bible is the inspired, authoritative and infallible Word of God and reveals the Triune God: God the Father, Jesus Christ – the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit.

Man is created in God’s image and receives eternal life through faith in Christ only. Although all men have sinned, and fall short of God’s glory and are eternally lost without Christ, God has made salvation possible through the crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Repentance, faith, love and obedience are necessary and fitting responses to God’s

initiative of grace towards man, and God’s desire is for all men to know and observe the truth and to come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit is at work in and through the Body of Christ, empowers and guides us to fulfil Christ’s Great Commission: “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations…” (Matt. 28:18-19).
