It is a pleasure to welcome you to Kingston Alliance Church and to tell you about our church family. If you have more questions after looking through this web-site, please feel free to contact me, or the leadership team, through the church office.
Life takes many turns, and without exception there are times we face “fork-in-the-road” decisions. We believe that Christ is the best one to turn to when facing the twists and turns of life. At K.A.C. our desire is to “

help people navigate life with Christ at home, in community, and around the world.”

Navigation requires constant checks and adjustments, and our relationships with both God and others in the church are key in this navigating process. As we align ourselves closely with God and His people, He will help us through the passages of life. Our desire is to journey together with our Lord to experience fullness of life, as well as His guidance through the uncertain waters ahead.

If you are currently looking for a church and would like more information about Kingston Alliance Church, please do not hesitate to call or visit with us.

 

Sincerely,

Pastor Paul Silcock

What We Believe

The Scriptures:

 We believe the Bible to be inspired, the only infallible authoritative Word of God. Inspired by the Holy Spirit it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 5:18; John 16:12-13; Hebrews 4:12

The Trinity:

We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. These are equal in every divine perfection and that they execute distinct but harmonious offices in the work of creation, providence, and redemption.

Deuteronomy 6:4; II Corinthians 13:14; Mark 12:29; Matthew 28:19; Isaiah 43:10-11.

God, The Father:

 We believe in God, the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

Isaiah 48:12; Ps. 95:3,6; Is. 40:21-26; Ps. 139:1-12; Jn. 7:37,38

 

Jesus Christ: 

 

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return for His church and with His church in power and glory.

Philippians 2:6; Hebrews 1:8; Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:20; Romans 3:25; Titus 2:13; I Corinthians 15; I Thessalonians 4:13-18; John 20:31.

The Holy Spirit: 

 

We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, the third Person of the Trinity. In the present age He convicts of sin, of judgment, and of righteousness, He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony, He is the agent in the new birth, indwells all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, baptizes them into the body of Christ, seals them unto the day of redemption, and every believer is commanded by God to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and He bestows gifts as He wills.

Acts 1:8; Romans 8:9; I Corinthians 12:12-14; Ephesians 5:18-20; I Corinthians 3:16-17.

 

Salvation:

 

We believe in the depravity of man, that all men are sinners by nature and by choice and are therefore in need of salvation, divine redemption through personal regeneration. We believe that those who repent of their sins and believe in Jesus Christ as Savior are “saved”, “regenerated” by the Holy Spirit.

Acts 10:47-48.

 

Sanctification: 

 

We believe that all believers are indwelt with the person of the Holy Spirit at the time of regeneration, given every spiritual blessing, all things pertaining to life and godliness, and empowered with the resurrection power of the Holy Spirit , drawing upon the resources available through the resurrected Christ, to the end that our lives increasingly manifest the very life, character, and power of Christ.

Acts 2:38, II Peter 1:3, Ephesians 1:3, Ephesians 2:1-6, II Corinthians 3:16, Romans 12:1-3, Galatians 2:20.

Divine Healing: 

 

We believe God can bring deliverance to the sick and afflicted and that it is the privilege of all believers to pray for His healing virtue.

Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:18; John 5:14; Isaiah 5:14.

 

The Church: 

 

We believe in the universal church, a living spiritual body of which Christ is the Head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ who have a credible profession of faith, and have associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that the calling of the church is to be the very presence of Christ in the midst of the world, standing as a testimony of His life and character. We believe that the testimony of Christ?s life is seen most fully in the corporate expression of His life that is the church, and that when God calls people unto life with Himself He necessarily calls them into fellowship with other believers as well.

Ephesians 1:22-23; Ephesians 5:25-27; I Corinthians 12:12-14.

The Ordinances

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ has committed two ordinances to the local church: water baptism and the Lord’s supper. We believe that Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water into the name of the triune God. We believe that baptism signifies and symbolizes Christian life begun. We believe that the Lord’s supper was instituted by Christ for commemoration of His death and signifies Christian life continued. We believe that these two ordinances should be observed and administered until the return of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Matthew 28:19; Acts 10:47-48; Romans 6:4.

The Last Things: 

We believe the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal blessedness of those made righteous in and through Christ, and the endless suffering of the wicked.

Mark 9:43-48; John 5:28-29; John 11:25-26; Revelations 20:5-15.

Attitude:

Considering the many denominational backgrounds of our community church, we wish to stress the importance of the main fundamental doctrines as being absolutely necessary and to be understanding in minor differences that so often are merely differences in terminology or custom. “In essentials, Unity; in nonessentials, Liberty; in all things, Charity!”

Core Values

 
  1. We believe the church is called to make disciples of Christ because lost people matter to God.

  2. We believe that every believer should seek to influence his or her network of friends toward accepting Christ.

  3. We believe that every believer should be Spirit-filled and exercising their spiritual gifts.

  4. We belive that God will lead, grow and empower us as we submit and yield ourselves fully to Him.

  5. We believe that life-related Bible teaching is foundational for life change and spiritual growth.

  6. We belive that prayer and worship, both personal and corporate, are vital to the spiritual health of the believer and the church body.

  7. We believe Christ is the head of the church and had provided gifted godly leaders to guide, equip and empower people for ministry.

  8. We believe that authentic Christian community and life change happen best in small groups characterized by care, transparency and accountability.

  9. We believe that the church should be a unified, loving community of believers who are sensitive to the needs of others and committed to encouraging and supporting others.

  10. We believe that honouring God in the management of personal and Christ resources according to biblical principles is a priority.

  11. We believe that excellence honours God and therefore we will give Him our best.

  12. We believe that the Church should be culturally relevant while remaining doctrinally pure.
