Our Statement of Faith

What we believe in



We affirm the faith as set forth in the historic creeds of the church, namely, the Apostles’ Creed and the Nicene Creed.

We believe in:

  1.  The Bible as the inspired, the only infallible, supreme Word of God.

  2. The one true God, eternally existent in three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  3. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.

  4. The biblical mandate to mankind to care, preserve, enhance, and faithfully steward God’s creation.

  5. The biblical mandate to mankind to care, preserve, enhance, and faithfully steward God’s creation.

  6. The atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so saving us from eternal death and reconciling all things with God.

  7. The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ, His ascension to be seated at the right hand of the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.

  8. The salvation of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit.

  9. The ministry of the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.

  10. The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers – given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts.

  11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfill the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

Creation Care

We subscribe to the Cape Town Commitment (Lausanne Movement, 2011).

We believe in:

  1. Creation care as the stewardship of God’s creation, a biblical command and an integral part of Christian discipleship.

  2. The love and care of all creation not as mere sentimental affection, pantheistic worship or a result of looming environmental threats – but a logical outworking of our love for God to whom it belongs.

  3. The duty and power of the Church to disciple its members to love and responsibly steward all of creation.

  4. The broken relationship between mankind and the rest of creation as a result of our sin.

  5. The need for repentance of our failure to be good stewards and our role in the continued destruction, waste and pollution of the world that God has entrusted to us.

  6. The environmental crisis as a direct and pressing threat to the lives and wellbeing of God’s creation, including humans.

  7. The need for the Church to act urgently and boldly to respond to the environmental crisis in order to alleviate suffering, halt destruction and loss of life, and bring healing to the land.

  8. The hope that we have in the renewal and perfection of all creation upon the return of Jesus Christ.
