What we believe
Because we all come from many different backgrounds and cultures and have all had our share of experiences, you might want to discuss the below with one of our elders for further clarity. We encourage questions so ask away! You can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Plus, check out our forthcoming foundations manual (ask the office for details) if you would like the below explained in more detail.
Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. He came to earth, was conceived of the virgin Mary and healed many who were afflicted with diseases, sin and by the devil. He was eventually crucified on a cross but rose again to life on the third day after his death. Through his death and resurrection he took the sin of mankind upon himself; paid the price for sin on behalf of mankind; broke the power of Satan over mankind; and reconciled God and mankind so that all of us – regardless of culture and background – may know God personally. Jesus opened the way for man to live eternally in God. And this is all the tip of the iceberg!

We believe that the Christian Bible is inspired by God and infallible. It is to be used to set all matters of doctrine and life for us today – as individuals and together as the Church.
God is one but in three persons. This doctrine is a mystery but is nevertheless true. We believe in God the Father, God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit, who are all one God.
We believe that mankind chose to go its own way and be out of relationship with God (Genesis 1:26,26; 3:1,24). This ‘fall’ resulted in sin and death entering the world. (Romans 5). Because God must uphold justice he must judge all of us for our own sins. But because God is also love, he has reconciled mankind to Himself through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Anyone who puts their trust (faith) in Jesus is judged as righteous and no longer as sinful. Those that reject God’s offer to be judged as righteous in Jesus, however, will face eternal destruction.
