Statement of Faith
We believe there is one God who lives forever in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is God's Word to the world, speaking to us with authority and without error.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe in the divinity of Jesus Christ the Son, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His death for us on the cross, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the Father, and His personal, physical return to rule the earth in power and love.
John 1:14-18 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18
We believe that all mankind needs to trust personally in the Saviour Jesus Christ.
We believe the Holy Spirit lives in us as believers and brings love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, humility, and self-control into our lives. He works in and through us with His charismatic gifts.
Galatians 5:22-23 1 Corinthians 12:7-11
We believe in the resurrection of every person; and at that time; it is our relationship with Christ that will determine our eternal destiny.
We believe in the unity for all believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and seek community together. We want to become more like Him in every way, who is the head of His body, the Church. We are called to love Him and one another and are enabled to do this only as His life flows through us.
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 Matthew 22:37-40
We believe the Scriptures teach that marriage is the covenanting union established by an authorized ceremony under God. Marriage is a unique reflection of God's faithful love for all humankind. The relations of husband and wife, as family, reflects the covenanting self-giving love between Christ and His bride, the Church. The pledge of mutual faithfulness is not tentative or conditional. The permanent nature of the marriage bond gives security and promotes the development of a trusting relationship. The Church has a responsibility to care for, nurture, and prayerfully support the marriage relationship and the children of the union.
