We confess the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments to be the only written Word of God, the supreme and infallible rule of faith and life, indispensable and determinative for our knowledge of God, of ourselves and the rest of creation, and for the whole educational task.

 

On this basis we confess that:

  1. There is one God eternally existent in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, being the same in nature, equal in power and glory, and worthy of equal honour, obedience and worship.

  2. This one God is Creator of heaven and earth and of all things visible and invisible, and sustains and rules over all His creation, including people, in perfect wisdom and power.

  3. People were created in the image of God and were given authority and responsibility to rule over Creation for the praise and delight of their Maker.

  4. In the whole of their lives, people either serve God, or a substitute of their own imagination.

  5. People, through unbelief and disobedience, have fallen into sin and brought God’s wrath and curse upon themselves and the rest of Creation. They are therefore separated from God and blinded to the goodness of God, and to the source, meaning and purpose of life.

  6. Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God, is the Mediator whom the Father sent to redeem and to reconcile the world to Himself, and the Lord to whom the Father has given all power and authority to give light and life to people lost in sin and death.

  7. The substitutionary death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ are the only ground of forgiveness of sin, of regeneration and of fellowship with God. God’s purposes for their world will culminate with Christ’s certain return.

  8. The knowledge of God, of His Word and of Creation results from the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
