Our Beliefs

The Holy Spirit: – He proceeds forth from both the Father and the Son and is eternal. [John 15:26]

Man, His Fall and Redemption:  – Man is a created being, made in the likeness and image of God, but through Adam’s transgression and fall, sin came into the world. [Rom. 5:14 & 3:23]

Salvation: – It is the gift of God to man, separate from works and the law, and is made operative by grace through faith in Jesus Christ, producing works acceptable to God. [Eph. 2:8]
