What We Believe

We embrace the Evangelical Alliance statement of Faith:

We believe in:

  1. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world
  2. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
  3. The dignity of all people, made male and female in God's image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
  4. The incarnation of God's eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
  5. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
  6. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
  7. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
  8. The ministry of God the Holy Spirit*, who leads us to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, empowers our discipleship and enables our witness.
  9. The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
  10. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.

* The Lord Jesus Christ baptizes regenerated believers in the Holy Spirit. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit is an empowering work of the Spirit which is distinct from the regenerating work of the Spirit, and is offered to every Christian. All gifts of the Spirit as listed in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12 and Ephesians 4, continue to be expressed in the Church today and are subject to the order prescribed in Scripture.
