Bible

We believe that the Bible is God's Word. It is accurate, authoritative and applicable to our every day lives. (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matt 5:18)

Eternal God: Triune - Father, Son, Holy Spirit.

We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.
(Deut 6:4; Matt 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14).

Sin separates us from God

We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.
(Romans 3:10-19; Jeremiah 17:9; Gen 1:26-27; Rom 3:10-18; 23-24; 5:12; Eph 2:1-3; 12).

Jesus Christ

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ as both God and man is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life.
(John 1:1-2, 14; Luke 1:16-35; Romans 3:24; 14:9; 1 Peter 1:3-5; 2:24; 4:5; Eph 1:7; Acts 1:9-10; Heb 7:25; 9:24; Rom 8:34; 1 John 2:1-2 2 Tim 4:1).

Repentance

We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and the 'new birth' we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and submit to His will for our lives.
(Eph 2:8-10; John 1:12; Eph 1:7; 1 Peter 1:18-19; Romans 10:9-10; Heb 9:12; 12:23).

Security

We believe we are eternally secure in Jesus Christ as we continue to live by faith.
(John 10:24-30; Romans 8:1, 35-39; 1 Cor 1:4-8; Col 1:21-23; 1 Peter 1:5).

Baptism, Holy Spirit and Spiritual Gifts

We believe that in order to live the holy and fruitful lives that God intends for us, we need to be baptised in water and be filled with the power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit enables us to use spiritual gifts, including speaking in tongues.
(John 16:8-11; Rom 8:9; Eph 5:18; Acts 1:4-5; 8; 2:1-39; 10:46; 19:2-6; Matt 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38-39; 10:47-48; Rom 6:4-5; Col 2:12; 1 Cor 12:8-10).

Ministry and Church

We believe that God has individually equipped us so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and serve the community in which we live.
(Rom 12:3-8; 1 Cor 12:12-14; Eph 4:11-13)

Healing

We believe that God wants to heal and transform us so that we can live healthy and prosperous lives in order to help others more effectively. (James 5:14-15; 1 Thess 5:23).

Eternity

We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or hell is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe in the reality of spiritual warfare and eternal judgment in the lake of fire for the devil and his angels.             
(John 3:16, Gen 3:1-15; Luke 22:31; Matt 4:1-11; Luke 4:1-13; John 13:2; James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8; Rev 20:10).

Return of Jesus

We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.                       
(Matt 24:30; Mark 14:62).
