What we believe

The church holds to the following statement of belief:

We believe in one God who is known to us in three ways – Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Father created all things including us but through our disobedience there is a barrier between us and God.
We believe that God sent His only Son Jesus to live as a man to show us God’s great care.
We believe that Jesus’ perfect life and sacrificial death breaks down that barrier and makes it possible for us to relate to God personally.
We believe that as we ask for forgiveness for our disobedience that through Jesus’ death God forgives us.
We believe that Jesus rose up from death and now is with God the Father.
We believe that God has sent The Holy Spirit to live in and empower all those who believe, trust and follow Jesus.
We believe that Jesus will return again one day and all who trust in Him will then live with Him and the Father forever in Heaven.
This belief is based on trusting the word of God – the Bible as truth and also personal experience in trusting Jesus.

And as a Member of the Baptist Union the Church also subscribes to the Baptist Union Declaration of Principle:

That our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, is the sole and absolute authority in all matters pertaining to faith and practice, as revealed in the Holy Scriptures, and that each Church has liberty, under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to interpret and administer His laws.

That Christian Baptism is the immersion in water into the Name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, of those who have professed repentance towards God and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ who 'died for our sins according to the Scriptures; was buried, and rose again the third day'.

That it is the duty of every disciple to bear personal witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and to take part in the evangelization of the world.
