Doctrinal Statement of Belief

4. We believe that man was created in the image of God, that he sinned in Eden and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, the latter being a separation from God; and that all human beings inherit a sinful nature, being void of all spiritual life and subject to sin and Satan.
(Genesis 1:26; 3:1-6; John 3:3, 6; Romans 3:23; 5:12-19; Ephesians 2:1-3)

8. We believe that the true, universal church consists of all who are born again by the Holy Spirit, who unites us into one, regardless of tongue or nation; and that we should therefore meet together as a local church, keeping the unity of the Spirit in pure and peaceable love.
(Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Ephesians 4:1-6) 

9. We believe that the Christian is called upon to live, not according to the old nature, but according to the new nature born in him at his conversion, so that he should, by constant submission to the will of God, always witness in word and deed to the truth of the gospel.
