we believe . . .

. . . the Bible to be the inspired, infallible, and authoritative word of God.

. . . that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

. . . that the Father is the creator and sustainer of all things. He made humankind in his own image and relates to us as a loving, holy Father.

. . . in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in his virgin birth, in his bodily resurrection from the dead, in his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in his personal return to earth in power and glory.

. . . in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life and is gifted for effective service in the church and beyond.

. . . that Jesus Christ’s gracious offering of himself on the cross is the only grounds for salvation from sin. This salvation comes when an individual turns from sin, trusts fully in the saving work of Jesus Christ and invites Him to be their forgiver, leader and friend.

. . . in the resurrection from the dead; for those who are in relationship with Jesus Christ, into heaven and its eternal glory – and for those who are not in relationship with Jesus Christ, into hell and its everlasting separation from God

. . . that the Christian church is the entire universal body of believers in Jesus Christ. We believe that a local church is a body of believers organized together for the purposes of worship, fellowship, discipleship and outreach through loving witness.

. . . that water baptism and the Lord’s Supper (communion) are the sacraments of the church that have been instituted by Jesus Christ.
