What we believe

We are a church that is centred on the gospel of Jesus Christ. The word 'gospel' means 'good news' and we believe Jesus is our good news. 


In the Bible, we learn about how Jesus is 'good news'. He came to save us from our rebellion and separation from God. He is now risen as Lord and calls us to come and follow him. At our church, we long to grow in the knowledge of Jesus and see others come to saving faith in him and follow him.

Confession of faith

A longer version of what we believe is found in what is known as the 'Westminster Confession of Faith'. This confession is a summary of the bible's teaching. It comes out of the Protestant Reformation. 

 

Key elements in this Confession are:

- the sovereignty of God in creation

- providence and redemption

- the centrality of the Gospel - that is the life, death and resurrection of the God-Man Jesus Christ in God’s purposes, 

- and the necessity of the Holy Spirit in the application of all aspects of salvation. 


It also highlights the nature and purpose of the Church, and the need to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in every area of life.
