Liberty Church - Statement of Faith

We believe:
  • The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God
  • There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • In the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection
  • In His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal  future return in power and glory
  • The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the blood of Christ
  • Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation
  • That the Holy Spirit baptises the believer in to the Body of Christ
  • In believer’s baptism by total immersion in water, in obedience to the command of Christ
  • The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer
  • The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who seek it
  • In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life
  • In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation
  • That the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is a local expression of a body of believers who are led by recognised, delegated authorities; and who assemble to worship, carry forth the Great Commission, and to  minister as the Holy Spirit leads, to fulfil the Righteousness and Justice mandate of scripture
  • That the New Testament Church should be apostolic in nature and governed by delegated authorities as expressed in Ephesians 4
  • That God’s plan of finance for His work is by tithes and offerings and that it is a joy for His children to acknowledge His Lordship in this manner
