What we believe

11. The Mosaic Ceremonial Law

We believe that God, through Moses, gave the people of Israel various statutes concerning the sacrificial system and ceremonies of the temple service. They illustrated the redemptive work of Christ and were a shadow and symbol of things to come. The validity of the ceremonial law ceased when on the [...]

12. Man’s Condition

We believe that after the fall man lost his exalted position before God. Since then, all mankind has been under sin with its results. Man is born with weakness and a tendency to evil and is subject to the power of death. “His nature became so weakened through transgression that [...]

13. God’s Offer of Grace

We believe God loved the world so much that He sent His Son to this world to save mankind. Even though corruption and rebellion prevailed everywhere, a way for man’s redemption had already been provided.  Ephesians 1:4; 2:8 – According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of [...]

14. Christ Our Righteousness

We believe that without the righteousness of Jesus Christ no mortal can stand before the holy God. The prophet Isaiah expressed this in the following way: “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags;.”  Isaiah 64:6 – But we are all as an [...]

15. Repentance

We believe that under the influence of the word of God and the work of the Holy Spirit man comes to a realization of his lost condition.  Psalms 32:1-5 – Blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth not [...]

16. Confession of Sin

We believe that all who confess their sin receive forgiveness and justification, for Jesus pleads His blood for everyone who repents.  1 John 1:9; 2:1 – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness… My little children, [...]

17. The New Birth

We believe that a person who gives his life to Jesus Christ and accepts Him as his personal Saviour will experience the new birth.  John 1:12, 13 – But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on [...]

18. Biblical Baptism

We believe that baptism is the covenant of a good conscience with God. Jesus’ commission to His church reads as follows: “.Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost..”  Matthew 28:18-20 – And Jesus came [...]

19. The Church of the Lord

We believe that the head of the church is Jesus Christ. The church is a body of believers who have accepted Christ as Saviour and Lord and live according to His teachings and commandments. Ephesians 5:23 – For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head [...]

20. Feet Washing

We believe the feet washing should precede the Lord’s Supper. It prepares the heart to serve one another in humility and love, and thus leads to a close communion. John 13:1-17 – Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart [...]
