What we believe

Our Church statement is To know Christ and to make Him known

Statement of Faith

As a church we have come from a range of backgrounds, we have a wide range of ages and we do a range of activities but what unites us is what we believe:-

  • God created the Universe and everything and everyone in it.
  • God is Love and His love for us is beyond our wildest imagining.
  • God created us to have a relationship with him but because he loves us he gave us the choice to obey him or not.
  • We have all disobeyed God and done things wrong (sin) and this sin ruins our relationship with God. Without him we cannot reach our full potential.
  • Because God loves us so much He sent His son Jesus to earth to die for us to give us the opportunity to get back into right relationship with God.
  • If we ask God for his forgiveness through Jesus' sacrifice, we can be put right with God.
  • Jesus rose from the dead and ascended and one day he will  return.
  • God has sent us the Holy Spirit to help us live on earth as His followers.

We don't believe ourselves to be perfect and we still make mistakes but the personal relationship that we can have with God, through Jesus' death and resurrection, gives us meaning in life now and certainty that we will be safe with Him when we die. We practise believers baptism by full immersion for new Christians.

If you are not yet a Christian and would like to know this meaning and hope then there are a number of things you can do now.
