Understanding God's Grace

Our Statement of Faith

What we believe about:-

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God and is our final authority for all matters of belief and conduct.

The Godhead

We believe that there is only one God, creator of all things, who exists as three distinct persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the Saviour of the world. Jesus lived a sinless life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world by dying on a cross, and that he rose from the dead, ascended to heaven and will return again to earth.

Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who makes people aware of their need for salvation. He also lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. He gives believers power for living, understanding of spiritual truth and guidance. He also empowers believers with spiritual gifts with which to serve the church and a lost, hurting and needy world.

People

We believe that all people are created in the image of God and matter deeply to him. Our sin separates us from God and there is nothing we can do to attain right standing with God without Jesus.

Salvation

We believe that salvation is a gift of God received by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. There is nothing we can do to make up for our sin through self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in God’s offer of forgiveness through Christ can people be saved from sin’s penalty.

Eternity

We believe that human beings were created to exist forever. Each individual will either exist eternally separated from God by sin in hell or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation in heaven.

Water Baptism

We believe in water baptism by immersion in the name of the Godhead in order to fulfil the command of the Lord Jesus Christ and is an important public declaration by a person of their faith in Jesus Christ.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an important experience available to every believer.
