TRINITY

We believe God is Trinity, one God and three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 8:6 / John 1:14 / Ephesians 4:4-6

FATHER

We believe God is the creator of the whole universe but, even before He made the world, He was eternally Father, living in perfect harmony with the Son and the Holy Spirit.

Galatians 1:4 / Philippians 4:20 / 1 Peter 1:3

SON

We believe Jesus, as God’s eternal Son, has always existed. He became a man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Mary. He was, and still is, 100% man and God.
He died in our place on the Cross, taking our sins on Himself. We are made right with God through His death. On Easter Day He conquered death in literal bodily resurrection. We are rescued and brought into relationship with God through His death and resurrection.

Matthew 1:21 / 1 John 5:20 / Romans 1:4

HOLYSPIRIT

We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity. Forty days after Jesus rose again from the dead He ascended to Heaven and, shortly after, the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Church. The Holy Spirit is a person not an “it”, a vague force or an influence. He brings us into relationship with Jesus, lives inside of us and empowers us to live our Christian lives.

Acts 1:8 / Ephesians 1:13 / Matthew 28:19

THE BIBLE

We believe all 66 books of the Bible (the Old and New Testaments) are God’s inspired word and without error. Together they are our final authority for life as followers of Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:16 / Acts 1:16 / 1 Timothy 4:13

THE CHURCH

The Church is God’s vehicle, His blueprint, to bring hope to a broken world. Through the good news of Jesus local church communities become visible expressions of the life and light of Jesus. The Church is bigger than any one local expression. It is made up of all Christians throughout history and across the world.

Galatians 1:4 / 2 Peter 2:9

GOD'S RESCUE

Our salvation (rescue) is entirely of God. We bring nothing to “the table” except our sin and rebellion. Through faith and trust in Jesus we become God’s children, adopted into His family.

Ephesians 1:5 / Galatians 1:4 / 2 Peter 2:9

HUMAN BEINGS

We are created in the image of God but, because of our rebellion against God, we brought both physical and spiritual death into the world. We stand judged, condemned and in need of a rescuer.

Genesis 1:27

THE FUTURE

Jesus will one day return to planet Earth. He will establish His new creation and death, sickness and suffering will be abolished forever!

Revelation 21:4
