What we believe

We believe:

 

  • There is one God who lives as three distinct persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.God created the universe and He made man in his own image.
  • The first man Adam disobeyed God. This resulted in the special relationship between God and man being broken, the entire human race becoming sinful and death entering the world.
  • God still loves the whole of mankind and he has put in place a plan of salvation to rescue man from sin.
  • Through his plan God sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, to live on earth as a human being. Jesus retained his divine nature and was free from sin, leading a perfect life in obedience to God.
  • It was God's will that Jesus died for our sins on the cross. Through His death, Jesus showed us God's love, satisfied God's justice and appeased God's wrath against mankind once and for all time.
  • Jesus was resurrected bodily on the third day after His death and He ascended into heaven.
  • After he went to heaven, Jesus sent a helper - the Holy Spirit, who helps and guides us today.
  • God will save from sin, and grant eternal life to, anyone who repents of their sins, who confesses that Jesus is Lord and who truly believes that God raised Jesus from the dead.
  • At the end of time Jesus will return in His glory and God will judge the earth and all the peoples that have ever lived on it.
  • The Bible is divinely inspired and is without error or failing. It is the Christian's guide to faith and practice.
