MANKIND: Mankind is created in the image of God. We sinned by disobeying God and earned death. All mankind’s nature is corrupt, and it is impossible for any people to make themselves acceptable in God’s sight. Every person is in need of regeneration by the Holy Spirit.
SALVATION: The salvation of mankind is wholly a work of God’s grace and is not the work, in any degree, of human works, goodness or religious activity. God imputes His righteousness to those who put their faith in Christ alone for their salvation. As a result, God declares them right in His sight. Each person must be born again of the Holy Spirit and can be assured of their salvation immediately upon trusting Christ as Saviour. The Word and the Spirit of God alone are the basis of this assurance.
THE CHURCH: The visible church is the gathering of God’s faithful saved people for the purpose of worship, edification, mission and use of gifts according to His word. Jesus Christ is the Head of his Church. God admonishes all His people to assemble together locally and regularly for worship, participation in Christ’s ordinances, and the ministry of the Word for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.
OUR COMMISSION: Jesus Christ commands all believers to be involved in the making of disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything Christ commanded. His purposes require that all worldly and personal ambitions be subservient to Him. This is true discipleship.
SECOND COMING: Jesus Christ will come again to the earth - personally, visibly and bodily - to complete and fulfil God’s plan.
