Beliefs are important – what you believe determines how you live.
One God as Three Persons
We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Bible is God’s Word
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error.
The Divinity of Jesus
We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love.
All Men are Lost in Sin
We believe that all mankind is lost in sin and need to turn from it and trust personally in the Savior, Jesus Christ. All need to be born anew by the Holy Spirit’s power into God’s family.
The Holy Spirit Lives in Us
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He gives us spiritual gifts which are still valid and relevant for today including speaking of tongues, prophesying, and healing among others as well as apostolic ministry, women in ministry, renewal in the Holy Spirit and worldwide revival.
We believe in the resurrection of every person; to eternal life for the believer and eternal judgment for the lost.
We believe in the sacraments as directed by our Lord Jesus are still to be practiced by the Church today including water baptism, as a public demonstration of faith and holy communion.
Unity for All Believers
We believe in unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together: we want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us.
Sanctitiy of Marriage
We believe the Scriptures teach that marriage is the covenanting together of one man and one woman in a union to the exclusion of all others. This union is established by an authorised ceremony under God. Marriage is a unique reflection of God’s faithful love for all humankind. The relationship of husband and wife, as family, reflects the covenanting self-giving love between Christ and His Bride, the Church. The pledge of mutual faithfulness is not tentative or conditional. The permanent nature of the marriage bond gives security and promotes the development of a trusting relationship. The Church has a responsibility to care for, nurture and prayerfully support the marriage relationship and the children of the union.
