What We Believe
Put simply, as a church we want to love God with all our heart, soul and mind, and love our neighbour as ourselves. All of this is motivated by God’s love for us in Jesus. We know we do not naturally love God or others well, and we need Jesus to save us and help us. So each week we gather to encourage each other in the faith. Whether it’s taking the first step with Jesus or taking another step in a long journey.
But if you want some more details about our beliefs…
We believe that Jesus Christ was born just as we are but without sin, died for our sins, was raised from the dead and is at the right hand of the Father as true God and true Man.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God and should be the final authority in our lives.
We believe in one God who exists and reveals himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe we need the work of the Holy Spirit giving us new life to both turn from our old ways and trust in Jesus.
We believe that all humanity was created in the image of God. But all have turned away from God and are subject to His wrath and condemnation. But salvation from this condemnation and release from the bondage of sin is found only through the sacrificial death of Jesus, who died in our place for our sins.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return to judge all people and that at his return we will all rise again to stand before God.
We believe that the church is the regular gathering of people who confess the Lordship of Jesus. Scripture instructs believers to devote themselves to the teaching of the Bible, prayer, fellowship and works of service.
