Armidale Fresh Hope Church

What We Believe

We affirm our faith in Jesus Christ as our personal Saviour and Lord. We believe that He died for our sake and that only through faith in Him can we obtain salvation from the eternal punishment of sin and be brought into a right relationship with God.

We believe in one God who is almighty, unchanging and eternal, exercising His sovereign power in creation, providence and redemption. He is just and holy, gracious and merciful, existing through all eternity as one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, eternally existing and of one Being with the Father.

This same Jesus came down from heaven by the power of the Holy Spirit. He was born of the virgin Mary and dwelt on the earth as man. He was crucified for the sins of mankind, suffered death and was buried. On the third day, He was raised from the dead by the power of God. He was ascended in power and glory to heaven, and is seated at the right hand of God, the Father, from whence He will return at the appointed time to judge the living and the dead.

We believe that God, through the Holy Spirit, who is one with the Father and the Son convicts mankind of sin and draws into His church all who truly repent of their sins and accept the Lordship of Christ.

We believe that the Holy Spirit is given to God's people to equip them with abilities and qualities which are for the accomplishment of His divine purpose and will in the world.

We acknowledge the authority of the Bible as the inspired word of God for the salvation of mankind and the guidance and edification of His people.
