What We Believe

Central to who we are as a church is not a building or a set of routines or rituals, but rather a person – The Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God – God’s special revelation of Himself to mankind. Speaking into the darkness of a sinful world, the Bible offers the most profound, life-changing message of hope and light – a message that is summed up so powerfully by the words of John 3:16:

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’

We believe that in response to God’s goodness and mercy, we are called as the church to serve Him faithfully in every area of life. We believe that spending time with God in His Word, in prayer, in worship and in fellowship with other believers helps us reflect something of the love of Jesus Christ back into the community in which we live and serve.
