What We Believe

We agree fully with the statement of faith expressed by the Evangelical Alliance, of which we are member. In our own words, this means we believe:

• In the one true God, who lives in three persons – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit (The Trinity)
• That God created and sustains the world
• That the Bible is the inspired Word of God and can be fully trusted
• That men and women are made in the image of God, created to know Him, but all of us sin and fall short of God’s standards
• That God’s eternal son, Jesus Christ, came and lived on earth, born of the Virgin Mary. He was both fully human and fully divine, and committed no sin.
• That Jesus died on the cross to pay the price for our sins and to defeat evil and death, making it possible for us to be reconciled with God
• That Jesus rose from the dead, not just as a Spirit but in bodily form, and later ascended to heaven where he still sits with God the Father
• That we are saved and reconciled to God by the grace of God through faith in Christ
• That the Holy Spirit works in us to bring us to repentance, and gives us new life
• That the Church is the Body of Christ on earth, and that all believers have a part to play, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to worship God, tell others the Good News about Jesus, and promote justice and love.
• That one day Jesus Christ will return to earth in a way that all can see, judge all people and establish a new heaven and a new earth.
