Our faith
  • The Bible ~ both Old and New Testaments, is the only source of knowledge about God and his purpose with mankind. It is inspired by God and is a true account, apart from errors of translation and transcription.
  • God ~ is the only, all-powerful, all-knowing and invisible but everywhere-present Creator of the Universe. He is wholly good, true, loving and compassionate, but will not tolerate any challenge to his authority.
  • The Holy Spirit ~ is the power by which God works.
  • Jesus Christ ~ is the only son of God, born of the virgin Mary by the Holy Spirit. He was a human being, subject to all the same sufferings and temptations as others. But he was the only one who overcame his human nature by submitting completely to his Father’s will, and never sinned. He reflected the character of his Father, showing his glory. He willingly allowed himself to be crucified; God raised him bodily from the dead, and he is now immortal, free from the temptation to sin, the first of God’s new creation. He ascended to heaven, where he is now the only mediator between human beings and God, when they pray for help and forgiveness. He will return to the earth to raise the dead and judge all whom God considers to be responsible to judgment. Those rejected will be destroyed, and those accepted will be blessed with immortality like the Lord Jesus. He will then set up the Kingdom of God in which he will be king, ruling the whole world from Jerusalem, until God’s purpose is fulfilled, all evil destroyed and the earth is at peace, full of the glory of God.
  • Human beings ~ were created in the image of God, very good, but given free will to choose whether to obey him. They chose to disobey, thereby bringing on themselves and their descendants the punishment of death. But God, in his mercy, provided a way of escape from eternal death through faith in Christ Jesus.
  • Baptism ~ is the way for people to show that they understand their need to be saved from sin and death, and that they believe their sins will be forgiven through Jesus. It is a symbol of death and resurrection, being a complete immersion in water, and the start of a new life.
  • The Christian life ~ is one in which believers, as brothers and sisters in Christ, try to show their love for God and the Lord Jesus by loving each other, praying, and sharing bread and wine together in celebration of Christ’s death and resurrection. It involves trying to reflect the character of the Lord Jesus in words and actions to other people so that they too will believe.
