What We Believe

  • In one Creator God, who reveals Himself as Father, Son and Spirit
  • In the deity and humanity of Jesus Christ
  • The Bible is the inspired and relevant Word of God
  • All people have sinned and need God’s grace and forgiveness which is free and available to all through Jesus’ death on the cross
  • God draws us to Himself but the decision to respond is ours
  • An individual must repent and trust Christ to receive forgiveness and eternal life
  • As Christians we need to offer our whole lives to God
  • When we give ourselves to God in this way, His Spirit can fully mold us into Christ-likeness; His perfect love is reflected in our attitudes and actions; and God empowers us to live more abundantly.
  • The church is the Body of Christ carrying on his purposes in the world
  • God can bring healing
  • Jesus Christ is coming again
