What We Believe

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,
that whoever believes in him should not perish
but have eternal life."
John 3:16




What We Believe is both a simple and a complex question. On this page we are listing some of the significant basic Christian truths.

We believe that there is a Creator, a God who is the force, purpose and direction behind everything we experience and know in the universe. The alternative view is that it is all a vast succession of accidents and coincidents without reason or purpose.

We believe that there is ONE God known in three persons, Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit.

We believe that the BIBLE is the divinely inspired and inerrant story of God gifted to us for teaching and inspiration.

We believe that Jesus is fully God and fully human, that in him we see the true nature of God and that through his sacrifice on the cross and resurrection comes the possibility of freedom and salvation for all who receive his promises. Jesus is The Way, The Truth and The Life.

We believe that because Jesus has gone through death and returned to heaven that the Holy Spirit has come that all Jesus followers might be annointed with his presence and receive his gift and power.

We believe that annointed by the Holy Spirit and trusting in the work of Christ we are adopted into God's family and are given the privilege of calling God the Father 'Abba' which means daddy, a sign of the intimacy and wonder of God's work and love for us.

We believe that even as God himself is eternal so we too as his children are called to the promise of new, abundant and eternal life.
