WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe that the Bible, is divinely inspired, and is the final authority in all matters of faith and conduct. It teaches and trains Christ’s followers how to grow in relationship with God and others.
We believe in the one true God who is eternally existent as a trinity of three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. These persons are distinct but inseparable, one in essence, power, and glory. God is the Creator, Sustainer and Ruler of all things visible and invisible.
-We believe that the Father is the author of salvation, and now the Father of all who are born again into new life through faith in Christ.
-We believe in Jesus Christ in who is truly God and truly man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin, Mary. He came to reveal the Father, announce the arrival of God’s Kingdom and to demonstrate a life of victory over sin. Jesus offered Himself up as a sinless atoning sacrifice for the sins of the world.
-We believe in the Holy Spirit who gives the believer understanding and guidance in all truth, and power to live out the Christian life.
We believe that God created all humankind both male and female, to enjoy a loving relationship with Him and with one another. Through human rebellion against God we have fallen and have come to be marred by a sinful nature. Humanity now cannot do what is pleasing and acceptable to God or bring glory to Him as we were designed to do.
We believe that God still loves all of humanity and has extended His grace toward us. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection, people who believe in Him are forgiven of sin and declared righteous, are made spiritually alive, and are invited into a never-ending relationship with Him. True belief will be evidenced by heartfelt repentance from sin, complete trust in Jesus Christ as Saviour, and surrender to him as Lord. This life will result in spiritual fruit and a life increasingly marked by love for God and others.
We believe that the true Church consists of all people everywhere who have been reborn through personal participation, by faith, in the death and resurrection of Christ,
We believe the promise of Scripture that God will create a new heaven and a new earth which will be the eternal dwelling place of those who have been made righteous through Christ. We believe in the bodily resurrection of all humanity to stand before God for final judgment. Those who have not accepted His life-giving grace will be raised to experience eternal punishment which is being separated from God.
