WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • One Holy God – Eternally existent in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  • Jesus Christ – Virgin born Son of God who was crucified to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of all mankind. He rose from the dead, thereby conquering sin, death and the grave. Jesus will personally return to the earth in power and glory.
  • The Holy Spirit – Indwells those who receive Christ and empowers believers to live righteous and holy lives. The Bapti sm of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit are available to believers today.
  • The Holy Bible – The inspired, infallible, authoritative source of Christi an belief and teaching.
  • The Church – The Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head, is comprised of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually changed by the personal work of the Holy Spirit. Believers are called to pursue God’s mission, both collectively and individually. For some it is a vocation (pastors, missionaries, etc), for all…..a passion.
  • Man was created in the image of God but has fallen, is lost and powerless to save himself. His only hope is to believe in Jesus Christ as his Saviour and Lord. When a life is changed by the love of Christ, we begin a journey of becoming like Christ. It is displayed inwardly with love, joy and peace. The outward display is in lives lived with integrity and the relational display is one of love and grace towards others. Consistent with His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ still offers healing for the physical, relati onal and emotional pain in our lives.
  • As Christians, we celebrate our hope in Jesus Christ with Water Baptism and Holy Communion.
  • Someday life, as we know it, will come to an end. Jesus will return and show Himself to be ‘King of Kings’. Everyone will be held accountable for the choices they have made in their lives. A permanent, personal relationship with God, without the influence of evil and pain will be established for all who chose Christ. This will be heaven….forever.
