We Believe

What Do We Believe?

Why be a Christian and attend church? Our answer would be because we worship a great God who loves us and shows us what he is like in Jesus.

For us some of the key points are:

  • God made the universe and sustains it.  He is present and active in the world today, and, as our heavenly Father, loves each of us personally.
     
  • Jesus is God's son, who lived, died, and rose from death.  In his life he showed us how to live as God wants. His death on the cross brings us back into a relationship with God, which we have broken by our sin (wrong thoughts, words, and deeds).
     
  • We respond personally to all God has done for us, admitting our need for him, and changing to live in the way he wants.
     
  • God gives his Holy Spirit to each of his followers to help us show God's love and power in our lives.
     
  • God wants his people to share together in prayer, worship, and learning, to encourage one another in the Christian life, and to grow together as his family. He tells us to love and serve one another as he loves us.
     
  • The Bible is God’s word which teaches us about him and shows us how to live as Christians.

God calls us to go out and tell others about Jesus so that they can know his love and forgiveness for themselves. He also calls us to work with him in the world so that his kingdom can spread as more people experience his love for themselves.
