Many people today do not know what is true or false and right or wrong. But the Bible is clear on what is right and how that gives glory to God; and what is wrong and how that is sinful.

Worship: We worship God the way He has told us in His Holy Word. It is popular today to introduce new things and make church more "exciting" but the Lord has laid down unchanging rules in the Bible. He does not approve of man-made inventions. This does not mean worship is to be boring. In fact, God says we are to worship Him with gladness and thanksgiving!

Christian Living: The Bible shows us how to live before God and with His grace we live as the Bible commands. But much of life is not dictated by a specific law of God. In these parts of life, we have freedom. This freedom, however, is always to be used in a way that glorifies God. Instead of being in bondage to "legalistic" and "extra-biblical" rules, we are free to do what is pleasing to God and in the best interests of our neighbour.

Creation: Evolution is a popular idea today, but we do not believe it. The Bible says God created the earth in six days and rested on the seventh. We are not ignorant of what scientists say, but God warns us to avoid science that is "falsely so called" (I Timothy 6:20). True science begins first with the Bible and not the other way around.

Sanctity of Life: Human life begins at conception (Psalm 51:5, Psalm 139:13-16). The Bible says that the Holy Spirit has even worked with some people before they were born (Luke 1:15, Jeremiah 1:5). Abortion, euthanasia and suicide are all murder and equally wrong. It is God who creates life in His image and it is God who protects it. Capital punishment is the only exception as it is designed to protect human life (Genesis 9:5-6 and Romans 13:1-4)

Man and Woman: The Bible says men and women are equally created in the image of God, but both do have differing roles. This does not degrade one sex below the other. The man is to lead, protect and support the woman physically and spiritually, while the woman is to be a helper for him and come under his leadership and protection. God has ordained marriage as the way man and woman are to serve each other. God has preordained sexual relations for the marriage state only, and thus forbids pre-marital sex and condemns all homosexual actions. Like all sinners, God calls such people to repent and plead for forgiveness in Christ Jesus, who promises cleansing and a new life.

We believe these truths not because they are our opinions or because the church has historically held to them. God has clearly spoken them in His Word.
