Our Belief

What We Believe

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

We believe, as the Bible teaches, that the man Jesus of Nazareth, who lived in Palestine over 2000 years ago, was indeed God in human form, sent to earth by His Father to live as a man amongst us.

Jesus was sent to teach the truth about God and, in the greatest ever act of selfless love, to die on the Cross to make salvation possible for those who truly believe. His death was totally unique in all of human history. Jesus was without sin and those who actively believe in Him, will be forgiven their own sin and be granted eternal life. This is all made possible because of His death on the Cross for us.

Although Jesus died, He rose again from the dead after three days and appeared to His disciples as testimony to the truth of His claims and His teaching. He has promised that all who genuinely believe in Him and accept His authority over their lives, will be raised again from the dead, just as He also rose.

Throughout His earthly life Jesus performed many miracles and healed many people, showed us what God is really like and demonstrated God's great love for us. Those who were actually there and were eyewitnesses to these events (the first disciples) recorded their experiences in writing. These documents were kept by the early church and over time became our New Testament. The Bible contains all necessary information to know the truth about God, His Son Jesus Christ and the way of salvation.

Belief in Christ means a life of active discipleship, and being a regular member of a local worshipping community. That community is the Church, the Christian family which all believers are called to be active members of and we welcome anyone in His name.
