Core Beliefs

    We believe that the Bible is God's true written word.  Our beliefs are based upon the truth revealed within it:

 

  • There is only one true God, creator of Heaven and Earth who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

  • Satan who was originally an angel in heaven, rebelled against God and was cast out of God’s presence establishing a counter-kingdom of evil on the earth.

 

  • Man is marred by disobedience toward God called "sin." which separates him from relationship  with God.

 

  • Jesus Christ who is the Son of God, lived a sinless life on the earth, died to pay the penalty for sin and physically rose from the dead overcoming the power of death.

 

  • If we acknowledge Jesus Christ as the Son of God, repent of our sin and surrender our lives to him, we can enter into a personal and intimate relationship with God.

 

  • There is no other way to receive salvation than through Jesus Christ.

 

  • Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we publicly declare our new life in Christ through water baptism as a      

         declaration of our new life in him to the watching world.

 

  • The kingdom of God occurs wherever God's will is done.  As followers of Christ we seek that he would rule in our personal lives  

         and in all our spheres of influence.  His Kingdom will be established, in fullness at the return of Jesus Christ.

 

  • The Holy Spirit equips Christ's followers with spiritual gifts and power to proclaim God's truth and share his love on the earth.   He also gives us an understanding of God's word and guides us personally in our everyday lives.

 

  • Our eternal destination of either Heaven or Hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ.

 

  • Jesus Christ will physically return, establishing a new heaven and a new earth.

 

  • We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for worship, fellowship, prayer and the ‘breaking of bread'.
