We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and that God has communicated His will and plan for man only through the Bible, comprising of 66 books (39 Old & 27 New Testament books).

2Ti 3:16-17: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The fundamental message of the Bible is the revelation of the eternal Son of God, incarnate in Jesus Christ for the salvation and eternal blessings of man, which is obtained only by personal faith in Jesus Christ the Lord (Rom 10:9-13).

As believers in the Lord Jesus, we wait for the imminent return of the Lord Jesus, just as He promised, when all believers will be raptured to be with Him eternally (I Thes 4:16-17).

We believe the doctrine and practices of this local church are in accordance to the Apostles teachings observed in the New Testament book of the Acts of the Apostles and epistles

For use as a guide to the Bexley Christian Assembly fellowship.
  1. All scripture is verbally inspired of God, as originally written, and therefore infallible and authoritative (II Tim 3:16-17; 2 Pet 1:21; Matt 5:18; I Cor 2:13).
  2. There is one living and true God who exists in three Persons-Father, Son, and Holy Ghost (Matt 28:19; II Cor 13:14). The Father is God (I Cor 8:6) the Son is God (Isa 9:6; John 1 vs1, 14; Heb 1:8-10) and the Holy Spirit is God (Acts 5:3-4).
  3. Through the fall of Adam, sin entered into the world and death by sin (Rom 5:12). All are sinners by nature and practice and are guilty before God (Rom 3:23).
  4. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh (I Tim 3:16). Conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary and as a man He was perfect and sinless (Lk 1:35, II Cor 5:21, I Joh 3:5, I Pet 2:22).
  5. The death of Christ on the cross was the atoning sacrifice unto God for the propitiation of our sins by which reconciliation of man to God is effected (II Cor 5:20-21, I Pet 2:24, 3:18, I Joh 4:10).
  6. The Lord Jesus rose bodily from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God (I Cor 15:4, Mar 16:19, Act 1: 9-11). He will return in person to take His people to be with Himself (Joh 14:2-3, I Thes 4:16-17).
  7. The Lord Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man (I Tim 2:5). The salvation from the guilt and consequences of sin, provided by His death and resurrection, is for ALL but must be personally accepted (Joh 3:16, Rom 10:9-13). It becomes effective to the individual as the Holy Spirit convicts of sin and leads to repentance and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
  8. Once saved we cannot be lost: we are eternally secure in Christ (Joh 3:16; Phil 1:6; Joh 10:27-29).
  9. The Holy Spirit indwells every true believer at conversion (Eph 1:13, I Joh 2:27), At conversion, believers enters into all the blessings and union of the Church by what took place on the day of Pentecost, when the Lord baptised the church in the Spirit into one body (1 Cor. 12:13).
  10. The New Testament believers will be raptured prior to the tribulation period which will be followed by the millennial reign of the Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor 15:51; Rev 3:10; 1 Thes 1:9-10; Rev 20:4-6).
  11. The dead will be raised either to life and immortality or to eternal condemnation (Joh 5:29).
  12. The Holy Scriptures is our unchangeable guide and supreme authority in matters of conduct and practice for believers and the local assembly. Some of the basic practices are listed here:
    1. The external observance of baptism is by immersion in water and only for believers on their personal confession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 8:37-38, Rom 6:3, Col 2:12).
    2. On the first day of the week, the Lord’s Supper is observed by those in fellowship with the local assembly (Acts 2:42, Acts 20:7, I Cor 11:20-29).
    3. As to the essential nature and status, all of us are equal before God. However within the assembly, there are diversities in spiritual gifts and distinctions in God designed roles (I Cor 12:4-30, I Cor 11:3-4, I Tim 2:11-15).
    4. Head covering as taught in I Cor 11:3-15 is practiced at all assembly meetings.
    5. The pastoral oversight of the local assembly is by plurality of spiritually qualified elders as guided by the Holy Spirit and responsible to the Lord (Acts 20:17, Tit 1:5, I Tim 3:1-13)
    6. Practice of using commendation letters when moving between assemblies (Rom 16:1-2)
