We believe in one God, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. 

(John 10:30, John 14:26, Philippians 2:5-7)

sof-son-of-god

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is fully God and fully Man.

(Hebrews 2:17, Matthew1:18)

We believe that God created man in His own image, man sinned and incurred the penalty of physical and spiritual death and was therefore separated from God.

(Genesis 1:26, Isaiah 59:2)

(Genesis 2:22-24, Matthew 19:4-6)

sof-personal-relationship

We believe we can have a personal relationship with God through salvation; God’s free gift to man. By admitting we have sinned and believing in the crucifixion, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus we can spend eternity with God.

(Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 5:1; Romans 3: 23-24)

(Hebrews 4:14, Luke 24:1-7, Luke 24: 50-51)

(Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, Hebrews 9:28)

We believe all who repent of their sin and receive Jesus as their personal Lord and Saviour by faith, are born again and thereby become Children of God.

(Romans 3:23, John 3:3, Ephesians 2:8, Galatians 3:26)

(Matthew 28:19, Romans 6:4, Matthew 3:13-17)

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit. He helps empower believers for service with supernatural gifts.

(Ephesians 4:11)

sof-ordained

We believe in submitting to authority, being in authority and under authority as all authority is God ordained.

(Romans 13:1-5)

sof-eternity-in-heaven

Eternity in Heaven. We believe in the resurrection of both the righteous and unrighteous, and that the righteous will live eternally in heaven, whilst those who rejected salvation will be eternally separated from God in hell.

(Matthew 25:46; 2 Thessalonians 1:8-9; John 14:2-3)
