> We believe in God the Father, in Jesus Christ our Saviour and in Holy Spirit.


> We believe in this Trinity we find our King, Creator, and Redeemer; just, merciful, faithful, loving, true, good and holy.


> We believe that God’s presence is enough; that in His presence we have access to everything we need and everything He wants to give us.


> We believe in The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.


> We believe people are created in the image of God with an ability and a destiny to know and enjoy relationship with Him. That even though we have rejected this and chosen a lifestyle that excludes Him, He still wants to know us. We can all be restored into relationship with Him.


> We believe that in His relentless mercy God the Father sent Jesus, His Son, to earth. He was crucified for our sins, died and was buried, but on the third day was raised back to life. Through this He gave us access to a life fully connected to Him, then He ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of the Father making intercession for us.


> We believe that after Jesus ascended God sent the Holy Spirit to lead, empower, convict, inspire and encourage us. With Holy Spirit living in and working through us we will see the world changed, one relationship at a time.


> We believe the Bible is the truth, God-breathed and a vital part of our relationship with Him. We believe in the divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God – fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.


> We believe in the Church, a beautiful multi-faceted family made up of individuals of every age, race, colour, and language joined through love for and faith in Jesus Christ.


> We believe that the church in all its forms, filled with the love and power of God is the hope for the world.


> We believe Jesus loves His church so much that He’s returning for her 

We believe that the atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God and the bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.


> We believe in the final mandate of Jesus, to go and make disciples of all nations, baptising in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


> We believe we are to be rooted in the word of God, and united in sharing the good news to the nations. Psalm 104:16
