Jesus said, “I will build my church“
Matthew 16:18

Statement of Faith and Purpose

WE BELIEVE IN
The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement;


WE BELIEVE IN
The Divine inspiration of the Bible and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct;
THEREFORE WE WILL Through personal reading and collective study seek to understand the teaching of the Bible and its application to both our personal and church life.

WE BELIEVE IN
The universal sinfulness of fallen man, making him subject to God's wrath and condemnation;


WE BELIEVE IN
The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole and all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin, and from its eternal consequences;

WE BELIEVE IN
The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead;
THEREFORE WE WILL Commit ourselves to the proclamation of his Gospel throughout the world both by personal witness and church evangelism, and encourage believers to profess their faith by being baptised by immersion and regularly taking Communion.

WE BELIEVE IN
The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit;
THEREFORE WE WILL Seek to live our lives in such a way as to bring honour and glory to God and have a beneficial effect upon our world. We acknowledge the mutual accountability we have towards each other and will lovingly give and willingly receive correction, rebuke, discipline and encouragement.


WE BELIEVE IN
The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal church, the body of which Christ is the Head;
THEREFORE WE WILL Support our church as much as our personal circumstances allow by:-
prayer - both personal and corporate;
attendance of church meetings - for prayer, Bible Study, worship, evangelism and the conduct of business;
financial giving - proportionately, thoughtfully and willingly - for the work of God in our own locality and throughout the world;
service - using the practical and spiritual gifts the Lord has given us for the building up of the church in love.


WE BELIEVE IN
The future, personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory, and in the resurrection of the dead.
THEREFORE WE WILL Set our hearts and minds on spiritual things.
