Where we areWhat we Believe
The Bible
We believe that the Bible (Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God. It is reliable and true.
2 Timothy 3:15-16; 2 Peter 1:21

Existence of God
We believe in one God, revealed as three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; Matthew 28:19

Fall of Man
We believe that mankind was created pure but chose to disobey God; and so became separated from Him.
Genesis 1:26-31, 3:1-7; Romans 5:12-21

Jesus
We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry and Substitutionary Death of Jesus Christ. We believe in His Bodily Resurrection, Ascension to Heaven and that He will come again.
Matthew 1:23; 1 Peter 2:22; Acts 2:22, 10:38; Revelation 20:1-6

Salvation through Christ
We believe an authentic Christian is someone who has received the gift of salvation through Christ, who died for our sins and rose again from the grave. Through His blood we have salvation and ‘new birth’.
Titus 2:11, 3:5-7; Romans 10:8-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Baptism
We believe a Christian should be baptised through full immersion in water.

Gifts of the Holy Spirit
We believe Christians can operate in the Gifts of the Spirit today.
1 Corinthians 12:4-11, 28; Ephesians 4:7-16

God centred Living
We believe that  as Christians we’re designed to strive to live a life that honours God in all we say, think and do.
1 Peter 1:14-16; Hebrews 12:14; 1 John 2:6

Healing
We believe God can and does heal the sick today.
Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; James 5:13-16

Breaking of Bread
We believe a committed Christian should regularly be involved in breaking bread with others.
Luke 22:14-20; 1 Corinthians 11:20-34

Eternal Life
We believe in both heaven and hell and that faith in Jesus Christ makes all the difference.
