The Authority of Scripture
We believe the Bible is the full revelation of Jesus Christ and seek to approve all things according to the Word of God. We are committed to believing God to fulfil every promise contained in Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16).
The Lordship of Jesus Christ
We believe that our relationship with the Father through Jesus Christ as our primary commitment and seek to serve Jesus as Lord through the whole of our lives (Acts 2:36).
The Power of the Holy Spirit
We believe in the empowering of the Holy Spirit as essential enablement for ministry that would bear witness to Jesus. We seek to develop in the operation of all the gifts and graces of the Spirit given by God as supernatural equipment for the ongoing ministry of Jesus (Acts 1:8).
The Uniqueness of the Local Church
We believe that every Christian needs to belong to a local church where they are able to express their faith and exercise a ministry by the power of the Spirit as part of that body (Ephesians 1:22,23; Acts 2:40-47).
The Unity of the Spirit
As a local church we seek the unity of the Spirit with every believer, and with all churches that confess faith in Jesus Christ. We desire to cooperate with the other churches in our region in order to proclaim the gospel to every person (John 17:21; Ephesians 4:3).
The Command of Jesus to Make Disciples
We believe that we are to be committed to fulfil the great commission given by Jesus to the church, to preach the gospel to every person, seeking to draw them to become His disciples (Matthew 28:18-20).
The Centrality of Worship
We believe that one of our primary responses as a Christian is to worship God. Therefore we place a high value on worship, as we seek to respond to God’s desire for a people who worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:23,24).
The Pursuit of Holiness
We are committed to becoming like Jesus. We desire that our personal lives and our relationships generally will reflect more and more of His character (1 Peter 1:16).
Care for the Poor
We want to fulfill the command of Christ to care for those special people in God’s sight whom the Bible refers to as "the poor" (Matthew 11:15).
Baptism and the Lord’s Supper
We believe that Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the Church:
