Mark believes in…

 

  • The full inspiration of the Holy Scriptures; their infallibility, authority and sufficiency as not only containing, but as being in themselves the Word of God; the need of the Holy Spirit’s revelation and teaching to bring a true and spiritual understanding of the whole
  • The eternal existence of one true God who is King, Creator, Redeemer and Judge; the love, grace and sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption; the unity of the Godhead and the divine co-equality of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
  • The Deity of the 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 for the atonement of sinners by His vicarious suffering and death; His bodily resurrection and His ascension into Heaven; His present priestly intercession for His people
  • The perfection of the original creation and the inherent dignity and worth of all people as image bearers of God; the depravity of their human nature and the entry of sin, sickness, death and judgement into the created order as a consequence of the Fall; the necessity for regeneration, repentance, faith, justification and reconciliation as the only means to enter God’s Kingdom and attain to His original design and destiny for humanity
  • The justification of the sinner solely by grace, through faith in the person and complete atoning work of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; the positioning of the justified as ‘sons’ by the adoption of the Holy Spirit
  • The absolute necessity of the work and leading of the Holy Spirit in regeneration, repentance, faith, justification, adoption, sanctification, discipleship, ministry and worship
  • The unique placement of Christ’s body, the Church, as His primary instrument for establishing, manifesting and expressing the Kingdom of God in this age;  the declaration and demonstration of His good news to all people through the proclamation of the Kingdom, the healing of the sick, the raising of the dead, the cleansing of the unclean and the driving out of demonic beings
  • The observance of baptism by immersion of the believer as a divinely ordained institution; and the observance of the Lord’s Supper as a commemoration of the Lord’s death and a prophetic declaration of His coming return
  • The resurrection of the body; the judgment of the world by the Lord Jesus Christ; with the eternal blessedness of the righteous in Christ and the eternal punishment of the unrighteous
  • The increase of God’s government and the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in glory.
