What we believe
As followers of Jesus Christ, our faith is centred upon his death and resurrection, which brings us into restored fellowship with both our Heavenly Father and new brothers and sisters from across the globe. We are a church family who seek to walk by the Spirit as we:
- Trust in God's promises to build His kingdom
- Accept personally the salvation offered in the gospel of grace
- Pray for guidance in our missional activities
- Worship God with both joy and the creative use of tradition
- Devote ourselves to the scriptures in preaching, teaching and daily life
- Share our lives together in a reconciled community
- Work for justice & mercy to the widow, fatherless, immigrant and poor
- Boast in our weaknesses in order to glorify God
- Encourage Kingdom movements both locally and globally
Let's get even more specific:
Like all Christian churches, we hold to the ‘ecumenical creeds’: the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, the Chalcedonian Creed and the Athanasian Creed. These four creeds were written in the early centuries of the Christian church and are statements of essential Christian beliefs,
The church body we are part of is the ‘International Presbyterian Church’ (IPC), which includes churches in England, Scotland and continental Europe. A summary of what is distinctive about IPC churches can be found here. And like other Presbyterian churches, we subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith and the Three Forms of Unity.
