Just as our CORE VALUES give an insight into what we do, why we do it and how we do it, our Statement of Faith provides the firm foundation on which all our members (i.e. cross-cultural workers, trustees and support staff) stand.
WE BELIEVE in the full inspiration of the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments; their authority, sufficiency, and inerrancy, not only as containing, but as being in themselves the Word of God; and the need of the teaching of the Holy Spirit for a true and spiritual understanding of the whole.
WE BELIEVE in the unity of the Godhead and the divine co-equality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE in the utter depravity of human nature in consequence of the fall, and the necessity for regeneration.
WE BELIEVE in the absolute Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; His real and perfect manhood; the authority of His teaching, and the infallibility of all His utterances; His work of atonement for the sin of mankind by His vicarious suffering and death; His bodily resurrection and His ascension into Heaven; His present high-priestly intercession for His people; and His lordship over His Church as its supreme Head.
WE BELIEVE in the justification of the sinner, solely by faith, on the ground of the merits and vicarious sufferings, death, and bodily resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
WE BELIEVE in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in conviction of sin, regeneration, and sanctification, as well as in ministry and worship.
WE BELIEVE in the resurrection of the body, the judgement of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ; the eternal blessedness of the righteous, and the eternal punishment of the wicked.
WE BELIEVE in the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.
