Mattew 7:13-14

Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it  But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.
 

P1040131mmWe would describe ourselves as an Evangelical Church.

Evangelical means “Good News”. We believe and preach that God sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world, 1John 4:14.

Here are some of our basic beliefs. These would be commonly held by evangelicals world-wide.

  • We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, 2Timothy 3:16.
    It is different from every other book, Hebrews 4:12.
  • We preach the Gospel, good news, that Jesus Christ came into the world to save sinners like us, 1Timothy 1:15.
  • Man can be made right with God (Justified) only through faith in Jesus Christ, John 3:16; Romans 5:1. No amount of religious duties or moral behaviour can build us points with God, Galatians 2:16.
  • When a person repents of their sins and puts their trust in Jesus Christ, they will be baptised as Jesus commanded, Mathew 28:19.
  • After that they should be faithful in prayer and Bible reading and gather with the Christians in a local church, Colossians 4:2; 1Peter 2:2; 2Timothy 1:9; Hebrews 10:25.
  • We meet regularly for worship, Bible study, prayer and outreach, Acts 2:42.
  • We believe in the soon return of Jesus Christ to take all believers in Him to Heaven, John 14:3; 1Thessalonians 4:16-17.
  • There are elders (mature Christians) who are appointed to oversee the various activities and to provide pastoral care to the congregation, Acts 20:17; James 5:14.
