Basis of Faith
We believe in...
The one true God who lives eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
The sovereign power, love, and grace of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
The authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures as inspired by God and which form his written word-fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
God’s love for all mankind, who are made in God’s likeness, to worship their Creator, love each other and care for the world in which they live.
The fall of mankind corrupted by sinful disobedience to God, and so incurring divine anger and judgement. Therefore, every person is under the just condemnation of God, and needs salvation.
The incarnation of God’s eternal Son the Lord Jesus Christ, truly divine, also truly human, born of the virgin Mary yet without sin.
The sacrifice of Christ on the cross; dying in our place, and by his loving grace paying the price of our sin and disobedience, and so reconciling us to God.
The defeat of death and the Devil, through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, and his bodily resurrection from the dead.
The ascension of Christ to the Father in heaven, to reign and to mediate as the only Saviour of the world.
The promised return of Christ to judge the living and the dead. And to establish his church in a new heavenly realm and to consign those who have rejected him to Hell.
