What we believe

Little Hill Church: Basis of Faith

  • The full inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; their authority and sufficiency as not only containing, but being in themselves the Word of God; the reliability of the New Testament in its testimony to the character and authorship of the Old Testament; and the need of the teaching of the Holy Spirit to a true and spiritual understanding of the whole.
  • The unity of the Godhead, and the divine coequality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit; the Sovereignty of God in Creation, Providence and Redemption.
  • The total depravity of human nature in consequence of the fall, and the necessity for regeneration.
  • The true and proper deity of our Lord Jesus Christ; his virgin birth, his real and perfect manhood; the authority of his teaching and the infallibility of all his utterances; his work of atonement for sinners of mankind by his substitutionary sufferings and death; his bodily resurrection and his ascension into heaven; and his present priestly intercession for his people at the right hand of the Father.
  • The justification of the sinner solely by faith in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
  • The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, conversion and sanctification; also in ministry and worship.
  • The universal Church, the body of which Christ is the Head, embracing all the redeemed, called by God, through the Gospel, born of the Spirit and justified by faith; the local Church, comprising such believers as the expression of the universal Church; and fellowship between such Churches, manifesting the unity of the Body of Christ.
  • The ordinances of Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as being instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ; but not in Baptism as conveying regenerating grace, nor in the Lord’s Supper as being a sacrifice for sin, or involving any change in the substance of the bread and wine.
  • The personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.
  • The resurrection of the body; the judgement of the world by our Lord Jesus Christ, with the eternal blessedness of the righteous and the eternal punishment of the wicked.
