What We Believe
The disciples followed Jesus for 3 years and observed Jesus’ miracles as he demonstrated his power over nature and disease. To the horror of the disciples they witnessed Jesus’ death on the cross. It was enough to convince them that those 3 years of their lives had been a waste. But these same disciples eventually gave up everything and often their lives, to spread the truth about Jesus. So, why the change? They saw Jesus and because of the evidence they were convinced that he had risen from the dead. God became a man and died on the cross for our sins, and has risen again. This is the basis of what we believe.
The universe and everything in it was made by God. But it was messed up by the disobedience of our ancestors, Adam and Eve. Jesus came to correct their mistakes and the wrongness that we inherited from them. Through his miracles and resurrection Jesus proved he was God in the flesh therefore we can rely on what he taught.
Jesus now offers us a way to be forgiven and to be changed from the inside. When we believe on Him we receive forgiveness a new life that will last forever. Through this new life we have real hope and purpose that helps us through each day. Jesus has promised to come back to this planet to make things right again. He has promised a new eternal kingdom that will be peaceful and will have perfect justice.
Statement of Faith
We believe that there is one God who is uncreated. He is the creator and sustainer of the universe. He exists as a fellowship of three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
2. The Bible
We believe that God has revealed his truth to humanity through the bible. The bible speaks without error of man’s origin and condition, his need of salvation and God’s programme of rescue and restoration. Christians must submit to its authority in all matters.
3. The Human Race
We believe that every human being is created in the image of God and is loved and valued by God. Sin has separated us from God, and we are unable to get right with him.
4. The Lord Jesus Christ
We believe that the Son, Jesus Christ is fully God and man. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. On the cross he died as a perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people. He rose from the dead, demonstrating his power over death and sin, and ascended into heaven. He will return to this earth to set up his kingdom.
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, through his atoning and sacrificial death.
6. The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is equal with God the Father and Son, he convicts men and women of sin. Every believer is baptised into him and as a result, the Holy Spirit lives in every believer and provides enablement to live a Christ-like life.
7. The Church
We believe that all believers of this present age are members of the church of which Christ is the head. Local churches are an expression of the universal church.
8. The Future
We believe that Jesus will return to the earth to receive the church and to set up his eternal kingdom. There will be a resurrection of the dead: those who are in Christ to a life forever with God and those who are outside of Christ to final judgement. God will finally make all things new and will be glorified forever.
We believe that regular remembrance of the death and resurrection of Jesus until he comes by eating bread and drinking the fruit of the vine is a biblically mandated part of our formal worship. In the tradition of Baptist churches, we accept water baptism (normally by full immersion) as a public declaration of faith.
