What we believe

The Scriptures - The verbal inspiration and total inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments as originally given by God; their sole-sufficiency and final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

One God - One God in three persons, the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, co-equal, coeternal, sovereign and active in creation, providence and redemption.

The Lord Jesus Christ - The essential deity and perfect humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and men; His virgin birth, sinless life and sacrificial death on the cross as the only substitute for sinners; His burial, bodily resurrection and ascension to heaven; His high priestly ministry and personal return.

In the resurrection of the crucified body of our Lord, in His ascension into heaven, and in His present life there as High Priest and Advocate (Matthew 28:1-7; Acts 1:8-11; I Corinthians 15:4-9; Hebrews 4:14-16)

That the Holy Spirit is the agent of the new birth through conviction and regeneration, and that He seals, indwells, and baptizes every believer into the body of Christ at the moment of conversion. We believe that the Holy Spirit fills, empowers, and distributes gifts to every believer (John 3:5; Ephesians 1:13; 2:20; 4:11-12; 5:18; Romans 8:9; 12:6-8; I Corinthians 12:1-13)

That man was created in the image of God, that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death which is separation from God, that all human beings are born with a sinful nature and are sinners in thought, word, and deed (Genesis 1:26-27; Romans 5:12,19; 3:10-13; Titus 1:15-16)

That the Lord Jesus Christ died a substitutionary sacrifice for all men. The blood atonement He made was unlimited in its potential. It is limited only in its application, effectively saving those who are brought by the Holy Spirit to repentance and faith (Isaiah 53:4-11; II Corinthians 5:14-21; I John 2:1-2; I Peter 2:1; I Timothy 4:10; John 3:5-8, 16:8-13)

That all who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God (John 1:12-13; 3:3-16; Acts 16:31; Ephesians 2:8-9)

That it is impossible for one born into the family of God ever to be lost because he is forever kept by the power of God (John 10:28-29; Jude 1; I Peter 1:5)

In “that blessed hope” – the imminent return of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, when the Church will be “gathered together unto Him,” in the clouds, and be with Him forever (Titus 2:13; John 14:1-3; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; I Corinthians 15:51-58; II Thessalonians 2:1-13)

In the literal fulfillment of prophecies and promises of the scripture which foretell and assure the future regeneration and restoration of Israel as a nation (Genesis 13:14-17; Jeremiah 16:14-15; 30:6-11; Romans 11)

In the bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust, the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting punishment of the lost (Matthew 25:31-46; Luke 16:19-31; I Thessalonians 4:13-18)

That the Church which is Christ’s body is the spiritual organism consisting of all born again believers in heaven and on earth, from Pentecost till the rapture (Ephesians 1:22-23; I Corinthians 12:13)

That the local church is the agency through which God has chosen to accomplish His work in the world. A New Testament Local Church is an organized body comprised of baptized believers who are immersed upon a credible confession of faith in Jesus Christ. It has two offices (pastor and deacon) and is congregational in polity and autonomous in nature. Its members have banded together for work, worship, edification of the saints, the observance of the ordinances, and the worldwide fulfillment of the great commission. We believe that the local church, under Christ’s headship, is to be free from any external hierarchy and should not associate itself with any ecumenical endeavour, neo-orthodoxy, neo-evangelicalism, or any such effort to compromise the Truth (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47, 8:26-39; I Corinthians 11:23-28; Colossians 2:12)

That the scriptural ordinances of the local church are baptism and the Lord’s Supper; that baptism by immersion should be administered to believers only as a symbol of their belief in the death, burial, and resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and as a testimony to the world of that belief and of their death, burial and resurrection with Him; and that the Lord’s Supper should be partaken of by baptized believers to show forth His death “til He come.” (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:41-47; 8:26-39; I Corinthians 11:23-28; Colossians 2:12)

Bible Study Notes

That the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired of God and inerrant in the original writings and that they are of supreme and final authority in faith and life (II Timothy 3:16-17)

In one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, equal in essence, while distinct in personality and function (Exodus 20:2-3; Matthew 28:19; I Corinthians 8:6)

That Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of Mary, a virgin, and is true God, and true man (John 1:1,14; Luke 1:35; Isaiah 7:14; Galatians 4:4)

Liam O'Neill - Testimony
Liam O'Neill

I became a Christian in 1975. That may seem a peculiar statement coming from one who practised his religion all his life. I met some people in the factory where I worked who seemed to have a real living faith in God. They spoke of Him as a friend – not some faraway greybeard sitting on a cloud. I was impressed by the fact that their Christianity was a relationship with a living, loving person – Jesus – and not a set of dos and donts, beliefs and rituals. They led me to see from God’s Word – the Bible – that I needed a Saviour. I came to see that Jesus took all my sin on the cross when he died. He was punished for my sin even though He himself was innocent. In a moment of time, I realised that the huge weight of my sin was lifted. A profound change came over me as the living God became my real friend. It was a joyous revelation that I now had a home in heaven. I look forward to the eternal life beyond the grave.

I was brought up as a Catholic. I had many questions about where I was going when I died. No one seemed to have the answer for me. The answers were ‘I think you will go to Heaven’ or ‘I am not sure there is a Heaven’. No one knew for sure. I knew there was a Heaven and a Hell, and I sure did not want to go to Hell. A few years went by and I met some Christians. These people seemed to be so confident about where they were going when they died and that they had a home in Heaven. Of course, this pleased me. They read the Word of God (the Bible) a lot and based their life on the Bible. I began to read the Bible for myself and, at the same time, I was meeting and talking with other Christians. First, I realised I needed Jesus in my life and I knew He died for my sins and for the sins of the whole world, so I took certain steps. John 3:16 says “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life”. I could not see myself as a sinner, which was sad when I look back. I had no problem with drink or drugs and I did not murder anyone (ctd.)

However, God showed me that I was a sinner, that deep down in my heart were evil desires. Therefore I admitted to God ‘I am a sinner and I want to turn away from sin and trust You as my Lord and Saviour’. Roman 10:9 says “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved”. My life has completely changed since I trusted Jesus as my Saviour. Every morning, when I wake up, I commit the day into God’s care and ask Him to guide me through the day. I know now that I have a personal relationship with Jesus, He is my best friend – a friend who gave His life for me – and may I have a thankful heart each day for the new life I have in Him.


"Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known" (Jeremiah 33:3).

If you would like to know about God, why not pick up a Bible and read it. We might suggest starting with the gospel of John. If you would like to know God, why not just talk to Him in prayer.

If you need help, or just want to talk to us about these things, please feel free to contact us.
