What we Believe
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God - God's complete revelation of Himself - His holiness and His love and His purpose for mankind: that the Bible was written by men inspired by the Holy Spirit; that the Bible is our final authority for faith and practice.
We believe that the Bible tells us about ....
God - He exists in Three Persons called Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is a Spirit, He is perfect, holy and righteous, loving, gracious and merciful. God is eternal, unchangeable and faithful. He is the Creator of all things. He has revealed Himself to mankind through His Son, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ the Son of God - His Deity, pre-existence and work in creation; His virgin birth, sinless life,
sacrificial death, bodily resurrection and ascension and His present Glory; His personal return to this earth for His church and His future reign as King of Kings.
God the Holy Spirit - the third Person in the Trinity - that He is at work in the world convincing mankind of sin, righteousness and judgement. He witnesses to and reveals the Person and the Work of the Lord Jesus Christ; He indwells, empowers and guides all those who are believers in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Men and Women - that we are sinners by birth and by practice; we are accountable to God for our lives - thoughts, words and deeds - and are incapable of meeting God's holy standards by our own efforts.
Salvation - through Jesus Christ's death for us on the Cross where He bore our sins, those who repent , believing God's Word about their sin and about Jesus Christ have their sins forgiven and cleansed; are given a new divine nature, eternal life and become members of God's family.
Fellowship with God - believers in the Lord Jesus Christ have through Him direct access to God the Father at all times through prayer; so the Christian has comfort, help and guidance in times of need - together with assurance, peace and joy.
