Firstly we believe that God wants us to enjoy life and live it to the full. He has created us to have fun, laughter, play and relationships. He has given us skills and abilities to work, be creative and use our unique personalities to add to his wonderful world. We believe that life works a lot better when God is included in every aspect.
We also believe that things unfortunately go wrong; people let us down, our friends and families become ill and even die. We lose our jobs, or get into trouble but God is caring and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love who can help us and radically transform and turns around any situation.
Below is a statement of faith which we as a church hold to:
We believe in one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who loves us and wants a relationship with each one of us.
We believe that God is creator of this universe and at the pinnacle of creation he made human beings. Unfortunately sin came into the world and separated human beings from God. However, to restore the broken relationship the Son of God, Jesus, came to earth as a human, lived the perfect life and died on a cross so that we could receive forgiveness. God the Father also raised him from the dead, defeating death, bringing hope to us all and offering eternal life to all who believe and turn away from their sin. He is now in heaven seated at the right hand of God high and lifted up.
We believe that the Holy Spirit impacts and transforms lives equipping us to try and live the life that God wants us to.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God, is alive and can impact the lives of anyone who reads it with an open heart.
We believe that one day the Lord Jesus will return! Are you ready?
