The Bible is the Word of God

The ultimate authority for the Christian faith and the Christian life.

God exists

Eternally in three persons: Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

God the Father

Has revealed Himself to be perfect love, holiness and justice. He is the creator of all things.

God the Son

Jesus Christ is the eternal unique Son of God. As true God and true man He was born of a virgin. He was without sin and was raised bodily from the dead and was seen by many witnesses after His resurrection. He has returned to heaven to prepare a place for us in the house of the Father.

God the Holy Spirit

Who indwells every Christian. The indwelling Holy Spirit is the great comforter who leads the believer into all truth. The Holy Spirit is the one who imparts both Gifts and Fruit to all believers.

Men and Women

Created in the image of God, were tempted by Satan and have rebelled against God. Men and women are now fallen in nature and evidence their sinful nature by committing sinful acts.

The New Covenant

Fully established between the Father and the Son. Jesus Christ is the fulfilment of the entire Law and imparts Grace and pardon to all who trust in Him.


By repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, we are justified by God and reconciled to Him. We experience forgiveness of our sins, spiritual rebirth, our adoption as God’s children and the gift of the Holy Spirit as a guarantee of our future resurrection and inheritance with Christ.


The Christian has, through Christ, authority over the powers of darkness directed by Satan, the prince of this world. We can exercise this power immediately through the indwelling Holy Spirit.


In the Biblical understanding of marriage. The Bible declares marriage as the joining together of one man and one woman. With Christ at the center of the union it can last a lifetime.

The church

Is the living body of Christ on earth. Jesus Christ is supreme ruler and the source of life for the church. This body is made up of all those who have received Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

Jesus Christ will return

To earth to resurrect the dead, judge the world and consummate His heavenly kingdom. This is the hope of the church and its encouragement for its ministry. All who are spiritually reborn shall live forever with Him.
