Our beliefs are based entirely on the truth of the Bible which we believe to be God given and the ultimate authority in all matters of faith and daily living. The Bible teaches:
That God is a Trinity, God the Father, God the Son (Jesus) and God the Holy Spirit.
That God created the heavens and the Earth and continues to uphold them.
That God’s creation, including man and woman, was perfect and that originally mankind enjoyed a close relationship with God.
That this relationship was spoilt by mankind’s disobedience and turning away from God (sin) which meant that mankind was no longer fit to live eternally with God in Heaven.
That in His great love for us God provided a way for the relationship to be restored through Jesus:
That by personally accepting the above truth about Jesus, asking that our sins be forgiven and trusting in Him as our Saviour, we are accepted by God, receive His indwelling Holy Spirit and are freed from the guilt, power and consequences of sin.
We believe one day Jesus will return to this earth to take those who trust in Him, both dead and alive, to live eternally with Him in heaven.
This statement of belief is based on the Evangelical Alliance basis of faith to which we subscribe. To find the full text visit go to the Evangelical Alliance website.
