Our mission and beliefs
Knowing Jesus and making Him known.
We will do this by:
Developing our relationship with Jesus by learning to follow Him, obey Him and become more like Him.
Loving the church
Living as a part of the family of God, meeting together, loving and caring for each other and encouraging each other in our shared mission.
Loving the lost
Taking every opportunity to share the good news of the gospel with those around us, making disciples and teaching them to do the same.
What we believe
We believe in the one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in the love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
We believe in the ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
We believe in the incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ — born of the virgin Mary – truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
We believe in the divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures (the Bible), which are the written Word of God – they are fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
We believe in the Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the Gospel, promoting justice and love to all.
Created in God’s image
We believe in the dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
Salvation through Jesus alone
We believe in the atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
We believe in the justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
We believe in the personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
