There’s only one true God who exists as a trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God is eternal, all powerful, all knowing and ever-present. He is in complete control of everything, absolutely pure, perfectly just, and abounding in love.
God lovingly and purposefully created the universe and everything in it. Above all He made human beings in His own image, which gives all people inherent dignity and value. We were made to know Him, to love Him and to give Him glory.
After being tempted by Satan, the very first humans chose to rebel against God and reject His loving rule. As a consequence of this one act of sin, the world is now subject to shame, pain, suffering and death. All people are now born in the grip of sin, and its tragic consequences.
God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, on a rescue mission to both serve and save the people that He loves. Jesus, being both fully God and fully man, was born to a virgin and lived a perfect life of humility, truth, justice and mercy.
Jesus willingly died on the cross in our place. He bore the full weight of God’s wrath for all our sin, redeeming us, reconciling us to God and providing for us forgiveness, freedom, healing and righteousness. The cross is the ultimate expression of God’s love for us.
Just as He promised, Jesus physically rose from the dead on the third day, conquering Satan, sin and death, and proving that He is the Son of God and Saviour of the world. His mission complete, Jesus then returned to heaven where He reigns forever.
The only way to be forgiven, made right with God and guaranteed a place with Him in heaven, is to believe that what Jesus did was for us, to turn to God in faith, confess our sins, and trust Him to save us by receiving the gift of His amazing grace.
God the Holy Spirit enables us to come to God through Jesus. He lives and works within every believer and is the seal of their salvation. He gives us the power to live new lives that glorify God, comforting, guiding, helping us in prayer and reassuring us that we belong to God.
The Bible is God’s perfect, living and inspired Word. It reveals the true nature of God and His great salvation plan, and is all we need to learn how to live lives that please, honour and glorify Him. The Bible is our standard in all matters of life and faith.
Jesus died to save and continues to build His body the church. All true believers belong to the global church, and are also called to be part of a local church. He has blessed us with specific roles and unique gifts in order to glorify God together, and to serve one another in love.
Jesus has commissioned His church to make disciples locally, nationally and globally. We all have a part to play in this mission. Through living and proclaiming the gospel we are called to reach the lost and to establish new believers in truth and love.
Jesus will one day return to renew all things and to judge the people of the earth in truth and righteousness. All those who trusted Him to save them will enjoy the bliss of His eternal presence. All those who rejected His grace will endure the reality of His eternal judgement.
