What do we believe?
So what makes us tick? What do we believe as a Church?
We believe in Jesus Christ. We want to put Jesus at the centre of everything we say, everything we do.
Through Jesus we can have a friendship with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.
The Bible. God has given us an instruction manual, we believe that both the Old and the New Testaments can teach us how to have life to the full.
The Holy Spirit. We are a spirit filled church, the Bible teaches us that God wishes to give us gifts to build one another up. Jesus sent his Holy Spirit to help us live a new life and to teach us about God.
Discipleship. We are encouraged to go deeper with God. We want to become mature in our walk with God and with other people as we make disciples.
Mission. As a church we are on a mission. We wish to make Jesus known and bring the hope and good news of the Christian message. 1 Samuel Chapter 22 v 2 sums it up:
And everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was bitter in soul, gathered to him.
Worship. We have a lot to be thankful to God for, we love to give him our praise.
Serving. Everyone has a part to play, everyone in the church is important, we each have been given gifts by God to help one another, to serve one another and to help us understand more about who God is.
Family. Family is important to us, we are called to love one another, build one another up. We have been created to be in relationship with each other. God is a relational God and is interested in everything we do and say.
