1 We believe in the One True God who created heaven and earth.
2 We believe He is alive and wants to have a personal relationship with us. He co-exists in three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
3 We believe the Bible is the Word of God. It is total truth and provides us with principles for every area of life.
4 We believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life. While He lived on earth He performed supernatural miracles. He died to take away the sins of the world. He was crucified on a cross, buried in a tomb, was resurrected from the dead and He ascended into heaven. We believe He will return to earth a second time in the future.
5 We believe man has sinned against God. Adam and Eve were the first humans and were created pure but wilfully broke God’s laws. As a result all of us have sinned and need forgiveness. There is salvation only through faith in Jesus Christ. He died on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. He was buried and after three days He was raised from the dead. Sin and death could not defeat Him.
6 We believe you must be born again to go to heaven. When you put your trust in Jesus and believe in what He did for you, the Holy Spirit changes you on the inside.
7 We believe in baptism by being fully immersed in water. In this way we follow Jesus’ example.
8 We believe the Holy Spirit gives special gifts – wisdom, knowledge, faith, healing, miracles, prophecy, discernment, tongues and interpretation of tongues. He empowers us and gives us the ability to do what Jesus did here on earth.
9 We believe our lives should reflect the fruits of the Holy Spirit – Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self-control.
10 We believe we should live holy lives. Through obedience to the principles and teachings in the Bible we can live lives that please God.
11 We believe in healing power of the Holy Spirit. We pray for the sick because we believe God still works miracles today.
12 We believe that everyone who has become a Christian should remember Him by regularly participating in communion.
13 We believe in eternal life and judgement. Those who have committed their lives to following Jesus will spend eternity with Him in heaven.
