Statement of faith

We believe in:

  1. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons -the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  2. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the World.

  3. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God -fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

  4. 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.

  5. The incarnation of God's eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ-born of the Virgin Mary, truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

  6. 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.

  7. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruitof our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the World.

  8. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

  12. We worship the only God who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit, whose creative, outgoing love overflowed from the divine community to create the universe and who calls us to share in eternal life and love and to participate in the fulfilment of divine purposes.
