THE VISION FOR OUR CHURCH
The vision for our church can be summed up in three words: Worship, Service and Evangelism. We are committed to growing in quality and quantity. Our great desire is to win people for Christ, disciple them and incorporate them into our fellowship.
We set our face towards our Lord and obey his command to love him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength and our neighbours as ourselves. We are a Biblical people who desire to live righteous lives, grow in grace and exercise the Gifts of the Spirit. We are a Church where worship is free, joyous, biblical and Spiritual. We desire that everyone is involved in ministry.
We believe The Bible to be inspired by God, without error, and the final authority regarding the Christian faith.
We believe in one true God, existing in three persons, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who by His sovereign power, created and sustains the world. We believe that mankind was originally created to enjoy relationship with God, but through the rebellion of man at the beginning of human history, is now alienated from Him by sin. This divide renders mankind unable to please God, and as such, separates all individuals from relationship with Him. We believe that the salvation of mankind is wholly a work of God's free grace, and that it is not possible to earn God's favour by human works or goodness. Only by personal repentance and faith in the sacrifice of Jesus Christ that Jesus made in our place on the cross can we be reconciled to God.
We believe Jesus Christ to be the second Person of the Trinity, who by his miraculous conception and virgin birth, experienced and identified himself with our humanity. He lived a life of total obedience to God the Father, and voluntarily atoned for the sins of all, by dying on the cross as our substitute.
By this act, he satisfied divine justice and accomplished salvation for all who trust in Him alone.
We believe that He rose from the dead and ascended into Heaven, where He sat down at the right hand of God the Father having completed His work. He is the only mediator between God and man, continually making intercession for all who call him Lord. He will come again to earth, personally and visibly, to all.
We believe that a genuine saving relationship with Jesus Christ should be accompanied by evidence of holiness and obedience to the ways of God, and as believers we submit to the ongoing work of the Holy Spirit. We believe The Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Trinity, who indwells every believer, as a source of assurance, strength and wisdom. consummate history and the eternal plan of God.
