Beliefs & Aims

We are a local community of Jesus disciples, freely saved by God's grace and aiming to live in the power of the Holy Spirit.

We believe that:

  • God created us for a relationship with Himself; we spoiled this relationship by our sins and so must face God's judgement;
  • God entered human history as the man Jesus Christ to rescue us. He died on the cross in our place to pay the penalty for our sins;
  • Jesus overcame death, rose again and is alive today. He will come again as King over all creation;
  • Everyone who accepts by faith what Jesus has done becomes a Christian;
  • The Church is not a building but a people who have trusted Jesus Christ as their Saviour and follow him as Lord;
  • Our authority for believing all this is the Bible, God's Word, which his Holy Spirit makes meaningful to us today.

 

Our aims are:

  • to make the good news of Jesus known wherever we have opportunity;
  • to engage in worship and prayer with all our heart, soul, mind and strength;
  • to be filled with the Spirit, showing his fruit in our lives and using the spiritual gifts he gives us;
  • to be taught by God's word and to align our lives to it;
  • to care and support one another in meaningful relationships;
  • to be open to God transforming our lives;
  • to serve our neighbourhood by meeting practical needs.

We'd like to share the Good News of Jesus with you. Whatever your situation, we want you to know that we'd be glad to see you. We hope you will visit us soon!
