What We Believe

 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible

  • Is God’s Word to all people and is entirely trustworthy
  • It is God-inspired, our supreme authority, and applicable to our everyday lives

God

We believe in God our Creator

  • He is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
  • He is holy, loving, good, just, all-knowing, ever-present and eternal.
  • God created us to enjoy a relationship with Him, however our selfishness (sin) separated us from Him.

Jesus

We believe that Jesus:-

  • Is God’s only Son, sent into the world proving His love for us
  • Is God in human form: fully God and fully human
  • Loved, healed, showed God’s power, spoke truth, served, and ultimately gave His life for us on the cross, so we could be completely forgiven.
  • Was raised by God from the dead.
  • Died for the sins of the world, and He promises that whoever believes in Him will have eternal life.
  • Will one day return in all His glory!

The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit

  • Draws us to Jesus
  • Guides us in truth through the Bible
  • Comforts and strengthens us
  • Equips us to love and serve in our church and our world
  • Transforms us to be more like Jesus
  • Empowers us to share the Good News of Jesus
  • Is given to all true believers

Becoming Part of God’s Family

We believe that becoming part of God’s family (salvation) is a gift from God to all people who put their faith in Him. We cannot earn this by good works.

The Church

We believe the church:

  • Is a family, a group of many different people
  • Exists to honour and worship God in community
  • Cares for and encourages believers and seekers to grow in their faith and relationship with God
  • Brings fresh hope to the community around them through loving, serving and sharing the Good News of Jesus
