What we Believe


  • We believe the Bible to be the inspired, perfect, authoritative Word of God.
  • We believe that there is one God, forever existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, the son of God, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, that His death atoned for our sin through his blood being shed, that He rose from the grave, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and that He is coming again.
  • We believe that for sinful and lost people to be saved we must ask forgiveness for our sin and accept Jesus Christ into our life and allow the Holy Spirit to restore us.
  • We believe in the present work of the Holy Spirit who lives in us giving us power, guiding us and enabling us to live a Godly life.
  • We believe in a personal relationship with God, through his son Jesus Christ.
