Convictions

We live for God’s Glory because we are convinced…


  • that God exists, three persons, one God.
  • that God created time, the universe and every living thing.
  • that God is perfectly holy, just, wise and powerful, unlimited by time and the physical dimensions of our universe.
  • that God created humanity for relationship with Himself and placed in us an expression of Himself.
  • that love is defined in God, and is given and received in the context of relationship.
  • that humanity has been given the capacity to respond to God in an expression of love.
  • that with this capacity also comes the choice to reject Him and live in disobedience.
  • that when we choose disobedience, which we all do, death is all we deserve.
  • that Jesus Christ, God the Son, was born a human being, lived a life of perfect obedience to the Father's will and died on a cross.
  • that by dying, Jesus took the punishment we, because of our disobedience, deserve.
  • that because He died and rose again, we get to enjoy what His obedience earned, relationship with God.
  • that the only appropriate response to this Good News is that…
    • we believe (accept by faith) who Christ is and what He has done for us,
    • we turn our lives over to Him, our Lord.
  • that as we respond to God in this way, we are established as His sons and daughters and have the opportunity of relationship with Him.
  • that God has chosen to reveal Himself in several ways to humanity…
    • through creation,
    • in the Bible, the inerrant, authoritative word of God, recorded by man through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit,
    • by His Holy Spirit, our source of everything we need for life and our guide.
  • that human beings only experience true life as we mature in our love for God and love for others in obedience to the Father's will.
  • that Jesus has instructed us, His followers, to tell others about Him so that they might have the opportunity to become His followers too.
  • that the Church is a community established and built up by Christ, growing together in Unity, Maturity and Sacrificial Love.
