Our Beliefs

  • There exists one true, eternal, loving God, who is the creator of all things and the source of life.

  • Though God is one, he exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

  • We learn about God through His creation, the Bible, and Jesus.

  • The Bible is the story of the ultimate meaning, purpose, and direction of human history, inspired by God himself.

  • The centre of the story of God is his mission to have reconciliation with his creation.

  • Man and women were created by God in his own image, united in a perfect loving relationship with him.

  • They rebelled against God (sinned) and broke that relationship. The consequence of sin is separation from God, and as a result of this, death.

  • God sent Jesus into this world to make a way for the relationship to be restored.

  • Jesus was crucified and received the punishment of death and separation from God, in our place.

  • God raised Jesus back to life after three days. Through his resurrection Jesus defeated death.

  • Through his life, death, and resurrection, Jesus established his kingdom in the world. His kingdom is the rule of God in the hearts and lives of people.

  • Our sin is forgiven, we are made right with God, and our relationship with him is restored, when we decide to follow Jesus, and accept him as Lord and Saviour.

  • The core principle in following Jesus is placing God’s will above our own will in our lives and trusting Him. Jesus gave us the perfect example of this in his own life.

  • Satan is actively at work to entice us into doubting God and turning away from him.

  • When we decide to follow Jesus, the spirit of God (the Holy Spirit) is given to us as a gift, to have a living presence in each of us, helping us live our lives according to God’s will.

  • The church consists of those who follow Jesus, and collectively, continues the work of Jesus fulfilling the mission of God in the world today.

  • Jesus will return one day to complete God’s mission. All evil (opposition to God) will be defeated completely and forever, and all of his followers will be gathered to live eternally with God in a new heaven and a new earth. There will be no more pain, suffering or sorrow.
