Why We Gather - Our Faith

God is the source of all life and we gather together as a community of believers who have been baptised in the Holy Spirit, to sing songs of thanks and praise to God for the blessings of creation and for the gift of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ.

We attend church regularly to have fellowship with others who also worship Jesus as Lord and Saviour, and to learn more about the will of God and the teachings of Christ from the Holy Bible.

We also pray for one another and for the world, and we receive the inspiration, edification, and spiritual food we need to help us to be instruments of God's love and goodness in our daily lives.

By doing this we affirm that the truths handed down to us from ancient times by trustworthy witnesses continue to provide us with a positive, reasonable and relevant way of living in the world of the 21st century.


The Father

We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.

 


The Son

We believe in Jesus Christ,
his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.


The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
