  • in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their original writings as fully inspired by God and accept them as the supreme and final authority for faith and life.
  • in our God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • that Jesus Christ was begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary and is true God and true man.
  • that God created man in His own image; that man sinned and thereby incurred the penalty of death, physical and spiritual; that all human beings inherit a sinful nature which issues (in the case of those who reach moral responsibilities) in actual transgression involving personal guilt.
  • that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, a substitutionary sacrifice, according to the Scriptures and that all who believe in Him are justified on the ground of His shed blood.
  • in the bodily resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, His Ascension into heaven and His present life as our High Priest and Advocate.
  • in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
  • that all who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
  • in the resurrection both of the just and the unjust, the eternal blessedness of the redeemed and the eternal banishment of those who have rejected the offer of salvation.
  • that the one true Church is the whole company of those who have been redeemed by Jesus Christ and regenerated by the Holy spirit; that the local church on earth should take its character from this conception of the Church spiritually and therefore that the new birth and personal confession of Christ are essentials of Church membership.
  • that the Lord Jesus Christ appointed two ordinances ‘Baptism’ and the ‘Lord’s Supper’ to be observed as acts of obedience and as perpetual witnesses to the cardinal facts of the Christian faith; that Baptism is immersion of the believer in water as a confession of and identification with Christ in burial and resurrection and that the Lord’s Supper is the partaking of bread and wine as symbolic of the Saviour’s broken body and shed blood in remembrance of His sacrificial death.
