Our Beliefs

The Bible is the Word of God;

       The universe was created as described in the book of Genesis, with the over-riding truth that the days were not 24 hour days but were periods of time, of undefined length, similar to but not identical to Ezekiel 4:6: "... I have appointed thee each day for a year"; and 2 Peter 3:8: "But beloved be not ignorant of this one thing that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day";

 Adam deliberately erred and was sentenced to death (Genesis 2:16-17; 3:6);

      Adam's death sentence was inherited by all his progeny (Romans 5:12)

 JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD and came to earth and died on the Cross to release mankind from the death sentence ( Romans 5: 15-17;  1 Timothy 2:5-6).­

        The planet earth will be restored to its former glory (Isaiah 35);

   The whole world of mankind will be resurrected to enjoy eternal life on the restored earth, provided they are obedient to God's laws at that time (Acts 24:15);

Currently GOD is calling a small group who are His church, the groups of whom are known only by the name of the location where they live (Revelation 2:1 - 3:14);

The time when Jesus will set up His kingdom on the earth is "near" (Luke 21:31).  It will be the new heavens and  new earth as prophesied by Isaiah:
" For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind. But be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem a rejoicing, and her people a joy. And I will rejoice in Jerusalem, and joy in my people: and the voice of weeping shall be no more heard in her, nor the voice of crying. There shall be no more thence an infant of days, nor an old man that hath not filled his days: for the child shall die an hundred years old; but the sinner being an hundred years old shall be accursed. And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them. They shall not build, and another inhabit; they shall not plant, and another eat: for as the days of a tree are the days of my people, and mine elect shall long enjoy the work of their hands. They shall not labour in vain, nor bring forth for trouble; for they are the seed of the blessed of the LORD, and their offspring with them. And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear. The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in my entire holy mountain, saith the LORD" (Isaiah 65:17-25 KJV).
