OUR FOCUS FOR 2022
UNITED IN THE GOSPEL
Jesus has changed our lives forever through the gospel, which tells the good news of Jesus. We want the good news of Jesus to be the foundation of everything we do and say, as a church and as individuals.
PASSIONate IN PRAYER
God hears and answers prayers. As we seek God's direction for our lives and our church, we long to be more prayerful, looking for opportunities to pray together for each other, our town and our world.
EXCITED ABOUT MINISTRY
God gives spiritual gifts to every believer, to provide opportunities to make Jesus known. As we look to serve our town, we want to become more excited about making Jesus known to our community.
REINVIGORATE OUR VISION
To be a people with a passion for Jesus, seeking to experience the fullness of life in Jesus, and share the good news of Jesus in our community.
WHAT WE BELIEVE
We believe in one eternal God who is Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
GOD THE FATHER
God the Father is totally loving and completely holy. We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives. We cannot have a relationship with Him as we are, but God has made a way through Jesus.
THE WORD OF GOD
We believe that the Bible is God's Word and God has made Himself known to us through His word. It is without error, authoritative and applicable to our everyday lives.
GOD THE SON
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ, as both God and man, is the only One who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, who died on the cross in our place and rose again to prove His victory over death, and empower us for life.
We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and everlasting life, we must repent of our sins, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and submit to His will for our lives.
As followers of Jesus, we become part of God's family, where everyone is welcome. We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer and the 'breaking of bread'.
We believe that God has individually equipped us, so that we can successfully achieve His purpose for our lives, which is to worship God, fulfil our role in the Church and the community in which we live.
GOD THE SPIRIT
We believe that the Holy Spirit works to convict us of sin and reveal Jesus to us. The Holy Spirit lives within each believer and enables us to live holy and fruitful lives, and to use our spiritual gifts to make Jesus known.
THE LAST THINGS
We believe that our eternal destination of either Heaven or Hell, is determined by our response to the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again, as He promised.
