Faith.

What we believe.

Bible

We believe that God inspired the words of the Bible to be written. The Bible is the supreme authority to which we refer in all matters of faith and practice.
Psalm 119:1052 Timothy 3:162 Peter 1:19-21

God

We believe in the three-fold revelation of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, given in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. We believe that God is sovereign: in creation, in sustaining the universe, in the revelation of Himself, in saving mankind and in the final judgement of all people. He works out everything in accordance with his will.
Genesis 1:1Psalm 90:2Matthew 28:191 Peter 1:2Colossians 1:15-17

Jesus

We believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God. He is both fully God and fully man. He lived a sinless human life, and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on the cross. He rose from the dead and is now at God’s right hand, interceding for his people and ruling as Lord over all.
Colossians 2:91 Corinthians 15:3-4Philippians 2:6-11Romans 8:34

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and the Son as God. It is He who makes people aware of their sin and their need of God and He lives in the hearts of all Christians. He reveals spiritual truth to us, gives us power for living and changes us to be more like Jesus.
Genesis 1:22 Corinthians 3:7-8John 14:16-17John 16:8Acts 1:8

 

Humanity
We believe that God made man – male and female – in His own image, as the crown of creation, to have fellowship with Him. However, because of sin, we are all guilty before God and subject to His wrath and condemnation.
Genesis 1:27Psalm 8:4Romans 14:10Ephesians 2:3

 

Salvation
We believe that salvation is a gift of God to man. God has had an eternal plan to rescue people from sin, death and hell and to bring them into a relationship with Himself that they will enjoy both in this life and in eternity. We are saved when we turn from our sin and put our trust in the crucified and risen Lord Jesus; this is solely by God’s grace, and not because of anything good we have done. Those who believe are to be baptised in water as a demonstration of death to sin and new life in Jesus.
Romans 1:17Ephesians 2:81 Thessalonians 1:102 Timothy 1:9

 

The church
We believe in one universal church, made up of all true followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that all Christians need to be committed to a local church, where they can join with other believers in worshipping God and showing his love to others.

1 Corinthians 1:2Hebrews 10:25Ephesians 2:19-22Ephesians 3:10-11

 

The return of Jesus
We believe in a future, personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus to the earth in power and glory.
Matthew 16:27Matthew 26:64Acts 1:11Revelation 22:12
