What We Believe

  • Jesus Christ is the most influential person who has ever lived. He changed human history forever, some 2000 years ago and has influenced all that has followed.
  • God loves us and wants us to know Him. He took the initiative to reveal Himself to us through the Bible. We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It’s accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives. It explains who we are, why we’re here and what our purpose is.
  • We believe there is only ONE eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
  • We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
  • We believe that God came to earth in human form as Jesus Christ. He lived a sinless exemplary life and died on the cross for all people in order to rescue us from an eternal fate. He rose from the dead three days later, showing victory over death. He is the ONLY one that has ever come back from the grave. He offers forgiveness to everyone who accepts the gift of salvation.
  • Jesus said he was the only way. He said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can pay the price for our sin and reconcile us to God.
  • We believe we receive forgiveness and the ‘new birth’ when we repent of our sins and believe what Jesus did. It is by faith we submit our will to His will for our lives.
  • We believe that we need to be baptised with water as a practical demonstration of our obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ showing the spiritual reality that has already taken place.
  • We believe we need to be baptised in the Holy Spirit to be empowered to live the Christian life. In it we are immersed in the Spirit’s life and power.
  • We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, love others and make a difference by fulfilling our role in the Church and serving the community in which we live.
  • We believe that God wants to heal and transform us from the inside out so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively.
  • We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the free gift of salvation that the Lord Jesus Christ offers through the cross.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
