- We believe the Bible to be the only infallible word of God.

- We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.

- We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
- We believe in the sanctity of human life as set forth in the scriptures:
- “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother‘s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” (Psalm 139.13-16)
- “Yet you brought me out of the womb; you made me trust in you even at my mother‘s breast. From birth I was cast upon you; from my mother‘s womb you have been my God.” (Psalm 22:9-10).
