Statement of Faith

This covers what we believe about God, Jesus, Holy Spirit and the church.


God We believe that there is only one God, and that He is the God described in the Bible, existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe the Bible is inspired by God, is authoritative and fully reliable in all it affirms. We believe that the wrong things we do are offensive to God, who created us and who has the right to judge us.


Jesus We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, born of a virgin named Mary. He lived a sinless life on earth and demonstrated God’s power and authority in what He did and said. We believe He died on a cross, rose from the dead on the third day, and is now seated at the right hand of God, having done all that was required to open a way for us to enter into Gods presence. We believe that the death of Jesus was necessary to restore our broken relationship with God. We can only be saved from separation from God by accepting that Jesus died in our place, asking Him to forgive us of all the wrong things we have done and surrendering our lives to Him. We believe that just as Jesus came the first time, one day He will come a second time taking all who belong to Him into eternal life.


Holy Spirit We believe the Holy Spirit causes us to recognise our wrongdoing and our need to surrender our lives to Jesus. We believe the Holy Spirit helps believers to live godly lives. We believe the Holy Spirit continuously fills God’s people every day with His gifts and power and is very much at work in the world today.


Church We believe that God’s church is made up of all those who believe in Jesus and surrender their lives to His leadership. We believe that the gifts described in the Bible, such as teaching, healing and prophecy, are still valid for and available to today’s local churches. We believe that local churches have a vital role to play in God’s plan for the world, and that we have a responsibility to tell others about Jesus and all that He has done.
