At TBC we receive the scriptures as our authority in matters of faith and practice.
Our understanding of Christian truth is an essential accord with the belief of the New Testament church.
We believe that the Bible is written by men who were led by the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the salvation of sinners is wholly of God’s Grace through the work of God’s Son who took upon Himself our nature yet was without sin, and by His own obedience, even in death paid for our sins. He is the only saviour for men.
We believe that God is sovereign in the election and salvation of all who believe in His Son. He regenerates and saves sinners and sanctifies believers.
We believe that a local church is a congregation of Baptised believers, associated by covenant or agreement in faith and fellowship of the Gospel of Jesus Christ working to carry on God’s work and glorify His name.
We believe that baptism is the immersion (dipping) in water of a believer, in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. It is a picture of death to sin and rising to a new life in Christ. The Lord’s Supper is a memorial in which by use of bread and wine we remember the dying love of Christ. Any person who has accepted Christ as Lord and Saviour can take part.
We believe in the practical manifestations of all gifts of the Holy Spirit including the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the end of the world is coming; that in the last day Christ will descend from heaven, and raise the dead from the grave and that a separation will take place. The unbelievers will be given to everlasting punishment and the righteous to endless joy. This judgement will fix forever the final state of men in heaven and hell on the principles of God’s righteousness.
