Our Beliefs

Declaration of Faith

We believe in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, who are three in one, the Trinity, the One and Only God.

We believe in the Virgin Birth, that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, that he was God in human form, God Incarnate.

We believe that Jesus died on the cross for the redemption of our sins, that He rose from the dead and went up into heaven to be with the Father. He lives today with us through the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe in salvation by repentance towards God, and the forgiveness of our sins through the blood of Jesus Christ. We believe that the only way to the Father is through Jesus Christ.

We believe the whole of the Holy Bible to be the inspired word of God and that it is the whole authority in matters of Christian doctrine and discipline.

Our vision for our church

C - Christ Centred

Jesus is the author and perfecter of our faith. (Heb 12:2) He is the head of the church (Eph 1:22). We are saved only by faith in him (Acts 4:12) and seek to live in love and obedience to him (John 14:15).

H - Holy Spirit Filled

The Holy Sprit is the gift Jesus left for all of us (Acts 2:38, 39). He is our counsellor and guide (John 14:26), who leads us into all truth (John 16: 13), convicts of sin (John 16:8) and lives in us as a guarantee of our belonging to Jesus (Rom 8:16).

U - Universal – For all

The Church is for all. Jesus came so that anyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. (John 3:16)
We are all learning and growing together and each one of us has a part to play as the Holy Spirit enables us. (1 Cor. 12:12 -27)

R - Real and Relevant

We are forgiven; we do not have to put on a show or pretend to be different than we really are. We have been set free to be honest and open without fear or guilt (Rom 8:1, 2). Jesus affects us in every part of our lives at home and at work as well as when we meet together (Rom 12:1, 2)

C - Compassionate

Jesus is motivated by love in everything he does (Matt. 9:36).
As we have benefited so much from that love we too should love others. (Matt 10:8 & John 15:12). We can bring love joy and peace to a hurting world (Matt 10:7, 8). We are called to share the salvation of Jesus with everyone (Matt: 28:19, 20)

H - Hope Filled

Our hope is not a vague wish it is the sure and certain knowledge that Jesus will return and put all wrongs right and bring peace and justice. This should inspire us to great effort and personal sacrifice to earn the reward of his pleasure when he returns. (Heb 12:2, 3)
