What we believe and do is based simply and directly on the Bible.
The Bible is the Word of God. The people who wrote it were specially inspired by God and it is completely reliable and true. It tells us all we ever need to know about God and how to please him.
There is one God but God has never been solitary. Three distinct persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, are mysteriously united in this one God.
Jesus Christ is the only Son of God. He became a real, perfect man while remaining at the same time fully God. When he gave his life, he died for our sins and in the place of all who trust in him. He rose again from the dead to give new life to those same believers.
We are all made by God in his likeness but have failed. We break God’s law and are selfish in our hearts. We deserve his punishment. We need to be reconciled to him. We cannot help or save ourselves.
The Holy Spirit shows us what we are by nature through the Word of God, and that only Christ can save us. He gives us a new heart to be truly sorry for our sins, to trust Christ to save us and to begin to love God and our neighbours as we should.
He gives us strength to live lives that please God. This includes joining with other Christians in a local church to worship and serve God, and to share this good news with others. And that is not the end…
Jesus Christ will return to judge all people and take those who have trusted him to be with him in a renewed world for ever.
