Our Beliefs

BASICS:
We believe in God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit who together have showered love on humankind since the world was created. 

We believe the Bible is God’s letter to us telling the cosmic love story of how God reaches out to us to bring us into his home. 

We believe Jesus Christ is God in the flesh. The historical records of his life in the Bible are a reliable witness to the truth of his death and resurrection.

We believe God speaks to you. We are not after mere facts or ideas, we are here for relationship with the Creator of heaven and earth.
 
We believe whoever you are, whatever you’ve done, wherever you’re from, if you let God lead you He will heal you and make the world a much better place through you. We want to help that happen.
 

EXPANDED (Theological):
We believe in one God, the Creator of all things, who lives forever as three persons: the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit. 
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to all humanity speaking to us with authority and without error. The Scriptures, rightly interpreted, are the final authority in determining all doctrinal truth.
We believe in Jesus Christ’s virgin birth, His sinless life, His witness and miracles, His substitutionary death for us on a cross that atones for the sin of the world, His resurrection from the dead, His ascension to heaven, and His physical return to rule over the earth.
We believe all of humanity has become separated from God through sin and rebellion, and must turn back to God through repentance and faith in Jesus’ death and resurrection. Believers are re-born to new life by the power of the Holy Spirit. 
We believe water baptism, the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and the “Lord’s Supper” (Communion) are an integral part of this new birth.
We believe the Holy Spirit indwells each of us as believers, bringing good fruit in our lives. He works in us and through us with His charismatic gifts and anointings. God spreads his kingdom on earth through us.
We believe in the resurrection of every person, to eternal life for the believer and judgment for the unsaved.
We believe that God’s not finished with Israel. Christians have not replaced Israel, they have been adopted into Israel’s covenant. We believe the promises of God in the Old Testament for Israel are true and active today including their rights to the land.
We believe that God instituted marriage as a covenant between one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others. Anything outside of that is not marriage in God’s eyes.   
We believe the Biblical principle of tithing honours God and is a continuing and practical expression of worship and faith. We encourage one another to be faithful in offerings too, being generous with our financial resources as the Lord leads.
We are still growing in understanding, but these beliefs seem clear when reading God’s word. If you have any questions or concerns about these beliefs, please come and talk with us...and bring your Bible.
