Statement of Faith

As disciples of Jesus Christ, we confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God.
We proclaim him risen Lord and Saviour of the world.
In Christ’s name and by his grace we accept the mission to proclaim the gospel to all the world and live in loving service to all people.
We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in the covenant of love that binds us to God and one another.
Through baptism into Christ we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God.
By the gift of the Holy Spirit we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience into Christ.
At the table of the Lord, each week, we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ
and proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.
Within the body of Christian faith we yield ourselves to God and one another, that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end.
Blessing, glory and honour be to God forever.
Amen

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.

Father , Son and Holy Spirit

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

We were dead but now we're Alive!

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives but our Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man, reconcile us to himself. Jesus lived a sinless and exemplary life, he triumphed over death by his resurrection so that in him, we can have new life, now and after this one.

We believe the Church is God's family

The Church is God's. It is made up of believers from all walks of life who are growing in the faith and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. We are called to love and build one another up into the fullness of Christ. As we grow together, we learn how to be the hands and feet of God sharing the good news with others.
