We’re inspired by the love of God and the example and teaching of the Lord Jesus Christ. God offers hope to all people!
God created the universe with a purpose and He reveals Himself to mankind:
- Broadly, through the wonder and beauty of the natural world He gave us to enjoy
- Specifically, through His Word, the Bible, offering wisdom for life’s important questions
- Personally, through the positive effect, He has on people’s daily lives when they trust in Him. The earth will be filled with God’s glory, peace and love when Jesus Christ returns
"For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea."
We believe that the Bible is God’s only revealed message to mankind, given to bring individuals to belief and faith in God and his Son. The Bible is our only authority and it should be read prayerfully and with care every day.
Romans 16:26; Acts 17:11; 2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21
There is only one eternal, immortal God. God is love. Jesus Christ is his only begotten son and the Holy Spirit is his power and presence. God is a Father to his spiritual children.
Isaiah: 45:5-7; 1 Timothy 1:17; 2:5; Luke 1:35; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 8:6
Man is mortal and a sinner before God. He has free will to obey God or not. To disobey God is sin, and the punishment for sin is death – the end of a person’s life.
Job 4:17; Romans 3:23; Jeremiah 17:9; Mark 7:21-21; James 1:13-15
About Jesus Christ
In his love, God sent his son, the man Jesus, into the world to save men from their sins. Those who believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus showed us what God is like.
Luke 1:35; Matthew 1:20-21; 3:17; Mark 12:29-31; John 3:16
Why Jesus died
Jesus was sinless. He died to show how bad mankind’s sin is, and provide a way for us to be saved by faith. God raised him from the dead, gave him immortality, granted him all authority in heaven and on earth, and set him as the mediator between God and man.
Ephesians 1:19-23; 1 Timothy 2:5-6; Hebrews 4:14-16; Romans 3:21-26
How to be saved
We believe we are saved by God’s grace through faith in Him and His son Jesus Christ. This involves belief in the Bible and obedience to its requirements that men and women confess their sins, repent, be baptised (fully immersed in water) and follow Jesus faithfully.
Ephesians 2:4-5; Hebrews 11:6; 2 Thessalonians 2:13; Timothy 3:15; Acts 2:37-38; 4:12; Mark 16:16; John 3:3-5; Matthew 16:24-27
Promises God made
The gospel (good news) is inseparable from the promises which God made to Abraham and David in Old Testament times. These promises find their fulfilment in Jesus Christ.
Galatians 3:6-9,16; 26-29; Genesis 13:14-17; 22:15-18; 2 Samuel 7:12-16; Luke 1:31-33
Jesus will return – we believe that Jesus will soon return to the earth. He will then raise many of the dead, judge them with the living and give his faithful followers everlasting life in the kingdom of God.
Acts 1:11; Revelation 22:12; Luke 21:20-32; John 5:28-29; Daniel 12:2; 2 Timothy 4:1; Matthew 25:31-34
The kingdom of God
The kingdom of God will be established on earth. Jesus will be king in Jerusalem; his authority worldwide and his government will bring eternal righteousness and peace.
Daniel 2:44; 7:27; 7:14; Acts 3:21; Jeremiah 3:17; Isaiah 2:2-4; 9:6-9; 11:1-9; 61:1-11; Psalm 72
Hope in living forever – the only hope of life after death is the resurrection of the body and everlasting life in God’s kingdom on earth.
Psalms 49:12-20; 1 Corinthians 15:12; Romans 8:22-39; Acts 24:15; John 11:25-26; Revelation 5:10; 20:4
