Vision and Purpose

 

______________________________________________________________

 

 

1. DEFENDING TRADITIONAL CHRISTIAN PRACTICE AND BELIEF IN SUBMISSION TO THE SCRIPTURES

  • in doctrine and preaching

  • in worship and music

  • in the use of reliable and reverent translations of the Bible, in particular the Authorised Version in English and the early Luther translation in German.

 

2. EXPOSING THE DRIFT INTO RELIGIOUS AND CIVIL APOSTASY

  • within mainstream denominations

  • demonstrated by current trends among evangelicals

  • the destructive influence and false teaching of the Charismatic-Pentecostal movement

  • the rebellion against God by nations once guided by Christian and Reformation teaching.

 

3. FURTHERING UNITY IN CHRIST AMONG GENUINE BELIEVERS

  • discouraging divisive and sectarian thinking and practice.

 

4. ENCOURAGING THE APPLICATION OF THE TEACHING OF THE SCRIPTURES TO EVERY AREA OF LIFE

  • in education, actively promoting Christian schools and home schooling

  • in marriage and the family

  • in a business work ethic, and dealings with others

  • in all matters concerning our present life

"Contending for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints" (Jude 3)

 

5. PREACHING THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR

  • with paricular emphasis on justification by faith in Christ alone without our own works

  • works as evidence of believing faith

  • maintaining an understanding of the antipathy between godless culture around us with the Christian way of life

  • exposing and opposing godlessness wherever it manifests itself, whether in politics, economics, justice, environment, etc.

  • linking the disintegration of our national life with an increasing opposition to Christ and the Gospel

  • issuing a clear call of repentance towards God and faith in Christ Jesus.

 

6. WAITING FOR OUR SAVIOUR'S RETURN

  • preparing ourselves for the increasing opposition and persecution ahead

  • looking for the victorious reign of Christ.
