What we believe

A full Statement of Belief is available on request, but in summary, this is what we as a Fellowship believe:

  •  We believe in one God who consists of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary.  He is true God and true Man.
  • We believe that God created man in His own image; that every man has sinned because he is born with a sinful nature; and that the penalty for this is spiritual and physical death.
  • We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins.  Jesus took the punishment we deserve, upon Himself.  We are therefore saved entirely by God’s grace and not by our own works or deeds.  However we believe that truly saved people will want to outwork their faith in various practical ways to glorify God, and out of gratitude to Him.
  • We believe that all who repent of their sin, believe in Jesus and receive Him into their lives by faith, are born again of the Holy Spirit.  They are washed clean by the blood of Jesus and become children of God.
  • We believe that Jesus rose from the dead, ascended into heaven and will return in person to the earth.
  • We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit who gives believers power to serve Jesus and to use supernatural gifts.  However these gifts of the Spirit need to be accompanied by the fruit of a changing Christ-like lifestyle. 
  • We believe in the resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.  Those who do not become children of God will be eternally separated from God. Those who do become children of God will be eternally blessed in heaven.
  • We believe that the one true church consists of all those people, from whatever denomination, who have been truly saved by Jesus Christ and have been reborn by the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ gave two sacraments to be observed by the Christian church.  These are to be administered by an ordained pastor or minister and are Baptism and The Lord’s Supper (Holy Communion). 
  • We believe that as God healed in biblical times, so He heals today.  He has not changed.
  • We believe that once we become a Christian, the Holy Spirit begins to change our lives so that we become more and more like Jesus.  This process takes time and we must obey Him as He works in us to be witnesses for Him to the end of the world.
