What We Believe

 
  1. We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19)

  2. We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

  3. We believe in the divinity of Jesus the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love. (John 1:14-18; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)

  4. We believe that all mankind are lost in sin and need to turn from it and trust personally in the Saviour, King Jesus. All need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit’s power into God’s family. (Ephesians 2:1-10; John 3:5-7)

  5. We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He works in and through us with His good gifts. (Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:7-11)

  6. We believe in the resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and justice for all. This justice will result in saved lives, healed wounds, restored dignity and reconciled inequities. It will also result in evil being stopped and darkness being overcome by light therefore establishing God’s just society where everything is made right. (Matthew 25:31-46)

  7. We believe in unity for all believers in Jesus and seek community together: we want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13; Matthew 22:37-40)
