Believe

What someone believes defines who they are. Here is a brief summary of what we believe.

We believe…

  • in a God who made the universe, who is in control of all things, and who is working out his plan to reconcile all things to himself.
  • God created people in his image, but people rejected God and fell into sin.
  • that God speaks to us through His word, the Bible.
  • that God came down into our world in the person of Jesus Christ, to take the punishment for our sin on the cross and reconcile sinners with God.
  • people can only have a relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
  • that God is present with His people through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, who not only helps us understand God’s word, but who enables us to become more like Jesus.
  • that what we believe isn’t just information, rather our faith draws us deeper into a personal relationship with God. What we believe is meant to transform our lives.
  • that the gospel is the hope of the world, and that God calls us to proclaim the Good News of salvation in Jesus Christ in both word and deed.
  • that our children belong to God’s covenantal community, the church, and ought to be baptised as a sign of God’s promise to love them.
