OUR BELIEFS

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s only revealed message to mankind, given to bring responsive individuals to the obedience of faith. The Bible is our only authority and we teach that it should be read prayerfully and with care at every opportunity. Rom 16:26; Acts 17:11; 2Tim 3:16-17; 2Pet 1:20-21

God

There is only one eternal, immortal God. Jesus Christ is his only begotten son and the Holy Spirit is his power. Isa 45:5-7; 1Tim 1:17; 2:5; Lk 1:35; Acts 1:8; 1Cor 8:6

Man

Man is mortal and a sinner before God. His whole being is prone to sin and the punishment for sin is death, the end of all life. Job 4:17; Rom 3:23; Jer 17:9; Mk 7:21-23. Jms 1:13-15; Rom 6:23; Ecc 9:5-10; Psa 146:4

Jesus

In his love, God sent his son, the man Jesus into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life. Lk 1:35; Mt 1:20-21; 3:17; Jn 3:16

Hope

The only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God’s kingdom on earth. Psa 49:12-20; 1Cor 15:12-50; Rom 8:22-39; Acts 24:15; John 11:25-26; Rev 5:10; 20

Sacrifice of Jesus Christ

Jesus was sinless. He died to show God’s righteousness and to redeem those who receive this sacrifice by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority in heaven and on earth, and set him as the mediator between God and men. Eph 1:19-23; 1Tim 2:5-6; Heb 4:14-16; Rom 3:21-26

Return of Jesus

Jesus will return to the earth soon. Then he will raise many of the dead, judge them with the living, and give his faithful followers everlasting life in the kingdom of God. Acts 1:11; Rev 22:12; Lk 21:20-32; John 5:28-29; Dan 12:2; 2Tim 4:1; Mt 25:31-34

Kingdom of God

The kingdom of God will be established on earth. Jesus will be king in Jerusalem, his dominion worldwide and his government will bring eternal righteousness and peace. Dan 2:44; 7:27; Acts 3:21; Jer 3:17; Isa 2:2-4; Psa 72; Dan 7:14; Isa 9:6-9; 11:1-9; 61:1-11

The Promises

The Gospel is inseparable from the promises, which God made to Abraham and David in Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ. Gal 3:6-9,16,26~29; Gen 13:14-17; 22:15-18; 2Sam 7:12-16; Lk 1:31-33

The Way of Salvation

The way to enter the kingdom of God is by faith. This involves belief in the Bible and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptized and follow Jesus faithfully. Heb 11:6; 1Thes 2:13; 2Tim 3:15; Acts 2:37-38; 4:12; Mk 16:16; Jn 3:3-5; Mt 16:24-27

The Life in Christ

As followers of Jesus Christ we endeavour to emulate him as much as we can. We believe in treating other people with respect and dignity. Where possible our community lives within the world community but stands aside from it in matters of politics, obeys the laws of the country in which we live and worships simply and freely.

We prefer to let the Bible speak for itself and determine the ways in which we should serve our God as believers who are separate from the world around us. We are citizens of the kingdom of God. 1Pet 2:13-17; Rom 12:9-21; Rom 13:1-7; Eph 4:29-32; Acts 5:29

"Come to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light"
