We are a Christian Church

Whilst we have our own particular ‘flavour’, we are joined by faith to all who love the Lord in sincerity and truth. We subscribe to the historic Christian faith as found in the scriptures and the creeds of the great ecumenical councils.

Our core beliefs

Our core beliefs are summarised in the Apostle’s Creed, the oldest of all the statements of faith that the church has historically used to define its belief and practice.

We believe in God the Father, Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth:
And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord,
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, dead, and buried:
He descended into the grave;
The third day he rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven,
And sits on the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From there he shall come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit;
The Holy Worldwide Church;
The Communion of Saints;
The Forgiveness of sins;
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.
