Statement Of Faith
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and infallible word of God, the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
We believe that God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and judgement.
We believe there is one God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God's judgement.
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, God's incarnate son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless.
We believe that redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin comes only through the sacrificial and substitutionary death of Jesus, the Son of God.
We believe that he was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth
We believe that the Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
We believe that the Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated. He makes them increasingly Christ-like in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.
We believe that the one holy, universal church is the Body of Christ over which he rules and to which all true believers belong and local churches are a special representation of that universal church
We believe that he Lord Jesus Christ will return in person to deliver God's judgement on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed into eternal glory.
