What We Believe

Doctrinal Statement

God the Trinity
We believe there is one true, holy and personal God. He is an infinite Spirit that has revealed Himself as a Trinity of persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Each of these is a separate person and at the same time one God. They are co-eternal and co-equal.

God the Father
We believe in God the Father who is all-powerful, all-present and of infinite knowledge. He is the creator and sustainer of the universe and worthy of all glory and honour.

God the Son
We believe in God the Son (Jesus Christ) who is fully God and fully human. He was born of a virgin, led a sinless life and died a substitutionary death on the cross for our sins. He rose from the grave and ascended to the right hand of the Father, where He makes intercession for all believers.

God the Holy Spirit
We believe in God the Holy Spirit who is the third person of the Trinity. He was sent to indwell believers and provides them with gifts for their place of ministry in the body of Christ.

The Scriptures
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God; that it is the only complete and final revelation of God’s will to humankind, and is the only perfect standard of faith and practice.

State of Humanity
We believe God made humans in His own image and they were sinless. Through the disobedience of Adam and Eve, sin entered into the nature of the entire race.

Salvation
We believe humans are unable to save themselves. Because of sin, we are separated from God, but because of God’s grace and love, He has provided a way for us to be saved through Christ.

Baptism
We believe in baptism by the immersion of believers in water in the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Lord’s Supper
We believe in regularly celebrating the Lord’s Supper, which represents the sacrificed body and shed blood of our Lord Jesus.

The Church
We believe in the local body of believers who acknowledge the lordship of Christ by personal faith and baptism. Together we seek to be obedient to God, love each other and declare the good news of Christ.
