What We Believe


WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the Son of God, the Saviour of all those who will turn to him in repentance and faith, and that he is the only way to God the Father. Jesus himself said,‘I am the way the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.’
(The Bible: John 14:6)

WE BELIEVE that real life is only found in Jesus. He said,‘I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.’
(The Bible: John 10:10)

WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the answer to the world’s problems. He said, ‘I am the light of the world.  Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.’ 
(The Bible: John 8:12)

WE BELIEVE that Jesus is the ultimate expression of God’s love to us. The apostle John, one of Jesus’ closest friends, said, ‘This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.’
(The Bible: 1 John 4:9)

‘For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.’ 
(The Bible: John 3:16)
