HUMANITY'S FALLEN NATURE AND NEED OF THE SAVIOUR
According to the Book of Genesis we believe the triune God created the universe without any evolutionary progression or process or pre-existing material means; we believe He laid the foundation of the earth; made the heaven, the heaven of heavens with all their host are the work of His hands, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them (Psalm 102:25; Acts 14:15; Nehemiah 9:6; Genesis 1-12).
We believe the human race was originally created by God, in His image, good and upright to have dominion over His creation (Gen 1:27; 3:6). However, with The Fall of humanity sin entered, that is man’s voluntary transgression through disobedience and rebellion. Humanity became separated from God and incapable of saving itself (Rom 5:12). All of mankind needs to turn from sin and trust personally in the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ, to receive redemption through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God (Rom 3:23.).
SALVATION OF MAN ONLY THROUGH FAITH IN JESUS CHRIST
We believe the power of sin and death was broken when Jesus bore our sin at the Cross and rose again, providing the only way of salvation for the whole person: spirit, soul, and body (Hebrews 4:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:23). Mankind can only be saved by grace through repentance and faith in Christ's perfect and sufficient work of the Cross. We receive remission of sins through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ, by Christ's substitutionary sacrifice for us, redemption through faith in His shed blood and regeneration by the Holy Spirit's power, (John 3:5), being justified by grace through faith man becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life (Luke 24:47; Romans 10:13-15; Ephesians 2:8).
