Our Beliefs

P1010297Like Christians of other communions we believe in the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We hold fast in the faith of Scripture. We believe the scriptures of both the Old and New Testaments are the inspired word of God. The Bible is God’s blueprint for living the Christian life and is our source for faith and practice.

We believe that salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ. We believe in the Redeeming love of God in Jesus’ life and teachings, his atoning death, his resurrection, his sovereign presence in history, his triumph over the powers of evil and death, and his promised return.

We believe the grace of the Christ gives us hope of eternal life.

We believe in the Sacraments of Baptism and Holy Communion.

We believe in the Church. We believe in the Church not as just a building but it is who we are. We believe the church is made up of all those in a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ, who are called to live in fellowship and worship together. We believe in the priesthood of all believers: everyone in relationship with Christ is gifted, empowered and called to serve within God’s mission to reach the world. We believe the church is to be the hands and feet of Christ on earth to bring about God’s justice and mercy for all people.

We believe our mission is stated in the Great Commission in Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV) “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
