What we believe

About the Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that writers were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error.

About God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Saviour of a lost world.

About Humanity

We believe that all people were created by God to have fellowship with Him, but became separated from that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

About Salvation

We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.

About the Christian Life

We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily guidance by the Spirit of God, every believer should be growing and being transformed more into the image of Christ.

About the Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving Him and by making him known to the lost world.

We are a partnering church of Kingdom Faith.

Our Call

We are called to live by faith, to honour God and others, to live generously and serve gladly. We are to be bold, hard-working people, who seek to do God’s will. We are to live in one Spirit, one body, one heart and one vision, recognising this church is not being built by us, but by Jesus Christ, in line with His declaration: “I will build my Church”. We are to be a people who live in the fullness of life and joy that comes through salvation, seeing the light of Jesus go out and shine in a dark world. We are called to be a prophetic church, who speaks God’s Word, who declare and protect the true Word of God, as written in the Holy Bible. We are to be a people who are faithful and committed to a life of prayer. We are to proclaim the Good News of the salvation that is available by repentance, through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Our Purpose

To Make Jesus Known.
