1.1 THE BIBLE
We believe that the Bible is inspired by God.

1.2 GOD
We believe the Godhead is eternally co-equal and co-existent in three persons; not three Gods but one; not one Person but three, namely the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

1.3 JESUS CHRIST
We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived of the Holy Ghost and born of the virgin, Mary. Thus we uphold His absolute deity as well as His complete humanity; two natures but one undivided Person.

1.4 THE RESURRECTION
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ and that He ascended into Heaven where He is now seated at the right hand of God, the position of power and authority. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all the dead, both the saved and the lost, the former to everlasting life and the latter to everlasting damnation.

1.5 LORDSHIP
We confess the Lord Jesus Christ and no other, as Head of the Church, and as our Lord.

1.6 THE SECOND ADVENT OF CHRIST
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ will manifest Himself in glory, majesty and power and in physical presence. This is the second coming of Christ and the blessed hope of the Church.

1.7 THE FALL
Every individual has sinned and is guilty before God. Man by nature is depraved and incapable of saving his own soul.

1.8 REDEMPTION
The Lord Jesus Christ, by His life, death, resurrection and ascension, has made available to all mankind the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. These blessings are made personally real to the individual, not by works, or by any personal merit in themselves, but by faith alone, which is accompanied by repentance.

1.9 THE NEW BIRTH
We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in the New Birth, which makes a sinner a child of God.

1.10 THE CHURCH
We believe that the true Church consists of the community of true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, who by faith have had their sins forgiven and been regenerated by the Holy Spirit. We believe in the Fellowship of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, recognising that the true Church is not confined to any one denomination.

1.11 BAPTISM
We believe in the baptism, by immersion, of believers only.

1.12 THE LORD'S SUPPER
We believe in the Breaking of Bread as commanded by our Lord Jesus Christ and as practiced by the Early Church.

1.13 SANCTIFICATION
We believe that the Scriptures teach a life of holiness, and we are to obey the command "Be ye holy for I am holy". Believers are sanctified (i.e. set apart) for God's purpose at conversion. Continuation in sanctification is the will of God for all believers and should be earnestly pursued by walking in obedience to God's Word.

1.14 BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is the Baptiser in the Holy Spirit, and that this baptism, as a distinct experience from the New Birth, is promised to every believer.

1.15 DIVINE HEALING
We believe in the gifts of healing and that God still, in our day heals the sick.

1.16 SPIRITUAL GIFTS
We believe that God has never removed the gifts referred to in 1 Corinthians 12  13 and 14, and that whenever the Holy Spirit moves upon the Church in power, these gifts are manifested. We believe it is contrary to the Apostolic Command for any to "forbid to speak in tongues".

1.17 PRIESTHOOD OF BELIEVERS
Each individual believer has full and equal access to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, as a believer-priest.

1.18 THE MINISTRY
The ascended Christ has given various ministries to the Church and each of these exists for the strengthening of, and is essential to, the welfare of the Church. They are set forth in Ephesians 4:11, 1 Corinthians 12:28 and elsewhere.

1.19 MIRACLES
We believe in miracles, both as recorded in the Bible, and as being possible in the present day.

1.20 JUDGEMENT
We believe that both the living and the dead will be judged, it being understood that the believers' condemnation was borne by our Lord Jesus Christ in His redemptive work.

1.21 MARRIAGE
We believe in the principle of heterosexual relationships between a natural man and a natural woman within the confines of lawful matrimony.

1.22 SANCTITY OF LIFE
We believe that life is a gift from God and must always be regarded as sacred. We believe that abortion is the taking of human life; therefore, society brings grave danger to itself by permitting abortion on demand, and thus treating God-given life so lightly. We call our members to oppose this social evil with great vigour. However, we reject the use of violence as a means of bringing about this needed change in society.

1.23 CREATION
We believe in the recent creation of all things by God in six literal days - as described in the first chapters of Genesis - and endorsed by Jesus Himself.
