Our Beliefs


God made everything and everyone. He rules the universe, and made us in His image. He is perfect and made us to know and serve Him.

The curse of sin entered the world through human disobedience and we were eternally destined for God’s wrath.

Two thousand years ago God sent His Son, Jesus Christ to earth. He lived a perfect and sinless life and was crucified in our place, taking on Himself the judgment we deserved. Three days after his death He rose from the dead, proving that He truly is the Son of God.

When we repent of our sin and accept the payment that he made on the cross for us, we receive the Holy Spirit and the security of eternal life with Him.

This is the gospel: the good news about Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Bible is inspired by God, true, without error, authoritative and sufficient (2 Tim. 3:16-17; 2 Pet. 1:21).
We believe there is only one true God (Deut. 6:4), creator of heaven and earth (Gen. 1:1), who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19; Luke 3:22).
We believe all human beings are made in the image of God (Gen.1:26-27), but due to the fall of humanity are sinful in nature and action (Rom. 5:12), marring but not destroying the original image (Gen. 9:6; Jam. 3:9).
We believe that sin is rebellion against God and disobedience to his law (Rom. 5:19; 1 John 3:4), falling short of his glory (Rom. 3:23) and that the deserved penalty for sin is physical and spiritual death (Gen. 2:17; Rom. 6:23) and final eternal separation from God in hell (Rev. 20:11-15).
We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God (Rom. 1:3-4; Heb. 1:8), was born of a virgin (Matt. 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38) and is both fully God (John 1:1, 14) and fully human (1 Tim. 2:5).
We believe that Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin (1 Pet. 3:18), He was buried and that He physically rose from the dead (1 Cor. 15:1-8), defeating sin, death and the devil (1 Cor. 15:56-57; Heb. 2:14-15).
We believe that only through repentance from sin (2 Cor. 7:10) and faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ (Acts 16:31; Rom. 10:9) can someone be reconciled to God (Rom. 5:6-11; 2 Cor. 5:18-20), receive forgiveness of sin (Acts 2:38; Eph. 1:7) and experience all the blessings of salvation, both now and in the age to come (Mark 10:29-30; Eph. 1:3).
We believe that Christians still struggle with sin, being part of this fallen world, but are declared at salvation to be new creations, righteous before God (2 Cor 5:17, 21). They then become more and more like Jesus – in thought, action, and relationships (Rom. 6:1-14; 1 Pet. 1:15-16) as they respond in obedience to God’s Word (Acts 20:32; Col. 3:16; 1 Pet. 1:22), walk by the Spirit (Gal. 5:16-25), and participate in their local church (Eph. 4:15-16; 1 Thess. 5:11; Heb. 10:24-25). Although never achieving perfection in this life, Christians are to pursue spiritual growth, realising in practice what God has provided in position (Rom. 6:1-14; 1 Thess. 4:1-8).
We believe that the Church is composed of all those who are joined to Jesus Christ through saving faith and are His body (1 Cor. 12:12-13). We believe that the local church is a gathering of professing Christians who commit themselves to one another to fulfill God’s purposes under God-ordained and biblically qualified leadership (1 Tim. 3:1-7; 8-13; Tit. 1:5-9), and practice the ordinances of believer’s baptism (Matt. 28:19-20) and the Lord’s Supper (1 Cor. 11:23-26).
We believe that marriage, as ordained by God and commanded in the Scriptures, is a life-long covenant between one man and one woman at the exclusion of all others. We do not recognize any other union as marriage (Gen 2:23-25; Heb. 13:4). Marriage is symbolic of the covenant between Christ and the church (Eph. 5:25-32).
We believe God created personal, angelic beings (some of whom rebelled against God under the leadership of Satan and wage war against God on the earth (Eph. 6:11-12; 2 Cor. 10:3-5, 13-15; 1 Pet. 5:8; Rev. 12:7-9), while the remaining loyal angels continue to obey God in ministering to believers (Heb 1:7, 14).
We believe that Jesus Christ ascended into heaven (Luke 24:50-53; Acts 1:9) and will one day return physically to the earth to reign as King of kings and Lord of lords (Rev. 19:11-21).
