OUR MISSION

To worship God in our everyday lives, bringing the good news of Jesus to people who live in darkness, are slaves to sin, and without hope. We aim to do this by meeting people where they are, going to those who need the gospel, not waiting for them to come to us. We want to see the Church grow, both by people becoming disciples of Jesus and by disciples growing deeper in their relationship with Jesus.

LOVING GOD. LOVING PEOPLE.

OUR BELIEFS

The best summary of what we believe the Scriptures teach is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith (WCF), one of the several great summaries of doctrine that emerged out of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th and 17th centuries.

Key elements in this Confession are the sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption, the centrality of the life, death and resurrection of the God-Man Jesus Christ in God’s purposes, and the necessity of the Holy Spirit in the application of all aspects of salvation. It also highlights the nature and purpose of the Church, and the need to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in every area of life.

The WCF is many pages long, if you don’t feel like reading the whole lot here are 9 core things we believe the Bible teaches and therefore every Christian aught to accept.

The divine inspiration and infallibility of Holy Scripture as originally given and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
The unity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit in the Godhead.
The universal sinfulness and guilt of humanity since the fall, rendering men and women subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.
The conception of Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit and his birth by the Virgin Mary.
Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only though the sacrificial death, as our representative and substitute, of Jesus Christ, the incarnate Son of God.
The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.
The necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting him or her repentance towards God, and faith in Jesus Christ.
The indwelling and work of the Holy Spirit in the believer.
The expectation of the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ.
