The Christians who meet in the Arnot Gospel Hall acknowledge the Bible to be the word of God and it is the basis of their beliefs and teaching. Salvation is offered in the Scriptures to all who acknowledge that they are sinners and place their faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and on His death on the cross. To those who do so eternal life is given as a gift, and once given, it is never taken away.
We further believe that every Christian believer should obey the Scriptural injunction to be baptised by total immersion, as was practiced by the early church and recorded in the book of Acts in the New Testament.
We believe that contrary to the practice of "one man ministry" in the organised church, the scriptural order for church government is for chosen elders, divinely set apart, to oversee the various functions of the local church, with respect to worship and Christian service. Also we believe that elders should use the gifts given to them by the Holy Spirit to minister God's Word, in order to build up and edify the church.
We believe that as a local church we have a responsibility to reach out to the people in our town with the message of the Christian gospel and further, to promote the sending out of missionaries to evangelise in other parts of the world.
Every Sunday, the Lord’s Day, the Christians gather to remember the Lord Jesus in the breaking of bread and the drinking from a cup. This will be done until the Lord Jesus comes again.
The coming of the Lord Jesus is taught in Scripture and the Christians await that coming again.
