Our Faith

God created the universe and everything in it and has a great purpose for the world.

1In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

2 The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.

Genesis 1 verses 1-2

The Bible is God’s inspired word written down for us.

16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for correction, instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

2 Timothy 3 verses 16-17

Jesus is the son of God. He was born, lived a perfect life and died for our sins. He was raised from the dead and ascended to heaven.

16 This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.

1 Timothy 1 verse 16

Jesus will return to the Earth and set up God’s kingdom.

6 The wolf also shall lie down with the lamb, the leopard shall lie down with the young goat, the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.

Isaiah 11 verse 6

Israel has a special place in God’s plan and the kingdom of God will be centred on Jerusalem.

1 Now the LORD had said to Abram: "Get out of your country, from your family and from your father's house, to a land that I will show you.

2 "I will make you a great nation; I will bless you and make your name great; and you shall be a blessing.

3 "I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed."

Genesis 12 verses 1-3

We choose to lead a life which follows the teachings and example of Jesus.

5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.

Deuteronomy 6 verse 5

We bear witness to our belief in God’s promises and our repentance through baptism. We look forward to life everlasting in God’s kingdom.

1 What shall we say then?  Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?  2 Certainly not!  How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?  3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death?  4 Therefore we were buried with him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

Romans 6 verses 1-4
