*** MY STATEMENT OF BELIEF ***
I believe in the Trinity: God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit
are three Persons present in one God.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, and is God, born of a virgin, crucified as
punishment for the sins of mankind, resurrected on the third day, ascended into heaven, and is coming back to rule and reign forever.
I believe that the only way to eternal salvation is through personal belief that the blood
of Jesus is all-sufficient for the penalty of sin and an acceptance of him into your life as
Lord and Saviour.
I believe in salvation by grace alone, and that salvation is immediate and eternal upon acceptance of Jesus as a one-time sacrifice for your sins, and not obtained through
any works, sacraments, traditions or merits of our own.
I believe that ‘Water Baptism’ is not required for salvation; but we are commanded to be baptised after becoming saved as an outward sign to the world of what we truly believe on the inside. The order is always, hear the word, believe and then be baptized as outward proof of an inward change. Baptism will not save you, or will any other good work for that matter. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are the two symbolical ordinances of the New Testament. As in the Lord’s Supper the bread and wine used are symbols of the great work of Christ, so in water baptism the work of the Holy Spirit is seen in the act of immersion in water in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. Baptism signifies a confession of faith in Christ, a cleansing or washing of the soul from sin and a death to sin and a new life in righteousness.
