To love and worship God and be a caring family. A family where all are growing into Christ-like maturity, being equipped for lives of ministry. A family committed to seeing all people reconciled to God through Jesus Christ.
The Essentials we Believe:
The Bible is God’s Word to us. It is divinely inspired and is the supreme source for Christian’s belief and living.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe, eternally existing in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God who lived a sinless life. He offered Himself as a perfect sacrifice for all sin, rose from the dead and is now exalted as Lord.
All people are sinful and fall short of God’s glory, so we are victims of God’s wrath and are in need of salvation.
To obtain salvation, repentance from sin and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and a dependence on His finished work is required. This cannot be obtained through any deeds of our own.
The Holy Spirit brings new life to the believer, uniting and sealing them in the body of Christ – the Church. It is this ongoing presence within that enables the believer to grow in Christian maturity.
The resurrection of both the saved and the lost is a final judgement. The saved to eternal life and the lost to eternal damnation.
And to follow the two ordinances of the Lord Jesus Christ – Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Baptism being the immersion of believers in commitment and obedience to the Lord; the Lord’s Supper being an ongoing ceremony for believers to remember the Lord’s sacrifice, until He comes again.
