Who Are We?
We are a community of Christians who believe that the Bible is God's word. It has been fully inspired by God the Holy Spirit and contains all that people need to know for salvation and to rightly understand the world - God’s world - in which they live. By its very nature the Bible is infallible, and forms a perfect rule for both faith and life. We believe that as God's people we need to be immersed or "marinated" in the Bible to understand how to live for God in this world. In understanding the Bible as God's word we proclaim Jesus Christ as the only true Saviour of God's people and the rejoice in the glories of His Kingship.
What We Believe
The best summary of what we believe the Scriptures teach is found in the Westminster Confession of Faith, one of the several great summaries of doctrine that emerged out of the Protestant Reformation in the 16th and 17th centuries. Key elements in this Confession are the sovereignty of God in creation, providence and redemption, the centrality of the life, death and resurrection of the God-Man Jesus Christ in God’s purposes, and the necessity of the Holy Spirit in the application of all aspects of salvation. It also highlights the nature and purpose of the Church, and the need to acknowledge the Lordship of Christ in every area of life.
We adhere to the Bible as the supreme standard of life and faith. The Bible is the Word of God, and as such it is infallible and inerrant. Our understanding of the Bible is contained in the Westminster Confession of Faith.
