What We Believe
All of the Bible is inspired by God (2 Tim 3:16) and is just as relevant for us today as it was when it was first written. God’s word not only foretells the future and teaches us how to live (Exodus 20:2-17) it also changes hearts.
Jesus is God’s only Son, and is fully divine Himself (Philippians 2:6). Jesus came to die to save us from our sins (Matthew 1:21) and right now He is just as active on our behalf as our faithful High Priest (Heb 4:14-16). In short, we believe that Jesus is enough, and is the answer for anyone who honestly seeks truth, love and life.
God uses His Church to do His work. Although not perfect, God’s church has been commissioned (Matthew 29:18-20), empowered (Acts 1:8) and grounded in Jesus (Colossians 2:7). God has given each of His believers a supernatural gifting to advance His work on this earth (1 Corinthians 12:4-7).
Jesus fulfills His promise and will return to take us home to be with Him forever (John 14:1-3). He delivers His people, brings an end to sin and recreates all things the way they were meant to be (Revelation 21:4).
