Our Belief

What do we Believe?

  • We believe the Bible is the Word of God, and believe its message is true and relevant for daily life.
  • We believe in the ONE true God as revealed in the Bible, a God in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that we were created to be in a perfect relationship with God.
  • We believe everybody is guilty of sin whether intentionally done or not. Sin destroys our relationship with God.
  • We believe Jesus died on the cross in our place, forgiving our sins, and restoring a relationship with God. Through this relationship we receive "eternal life."
  • We believe the gift of eternal life cannot be earned or deserved in any way. It is a free gift from God through believing and trusting in His Son Jesus Christ, our LORD and Saviour.
  • We believe the result of trusting in Jesus Christ alone for eternal life is peace with God.
  • We believe in the astonishing claim that Jesus, who died on the cross, is risen and alive.
  • We believe the Holy Spirit was sent to this world to convince us of the truth. He also comes to live powerfully within us, to change us, and to help us grow in our relationship with God.
  • We believe that Jesus is coming back AGAIN.
