What We Believe

Does God exist?
What happens when I die?
Why am I here?
Is this all there is to life?
Is there a heaven and a hell?
Who is Jesus?

These are the most important questions we will ever face in life, and the good news is God loves us so much he has given us answers!

Our church family has many people from very different backgrounds who have found answers to these questions. We have found that there is more to life than working, eating, sleeping and watching TV. We have had our lives changed for the better by Jesus. Feel free to come along and meet with men, women and young people who have found real life, real joy, real peace in Jesus.

What’s Christianity all about? Christianity is all about Jesus Christ!

Sounds simple, but lots of people think that Christianity is actually about trying to live a good moral life. In-fact the Bible says that none of us can ever live a good enough life for God. We have all fallen short, we have all treated God badly by the way we have lived our lives.

This has caused us a very serious problem. God will not sweep our sin under the carpet, he will not pretend everything’s Ok. He is Holy and Just, and the Bible makes clear that sin leads to life without peace and death without God.

The Good News is that God has chosen to reach down into our messy sin-full world and lift people out of the filth. None of us deserve to know the joy of God’s love and the wonder of His presence, yet now we can.

Jesus came to earth as a man with a mission from God the Father. He lived the perfect life that none of us have, and he died the death that each of us deserve. When he rose again he showed that death need not have the final word.

What does this mean for me?

What this means is that those who are trusting in Jesus, need not be separated from God, from his joy and peace, from the wonder of his presence and from his victory over death.

On the cross he died not to pay the price for his wrongdoing, but for ours. The Bible says:

“he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.”

Now we don’t need to face the punishment for our sinful lives. Jesus faced that punishment on the cross in our place. The bible says “he who knew no sin (Jesus) became sin for us”. Jesus became dirty in God’s eyes, that’s the real horror of the cross. Jesus was willing to take our guilt, our shame, our sin on his own shoulders. He suffered and died for us.

Now you no longer need to live a godless empty life, you no longer need to face the reality of hell when you die.

Christians are people who have made Jesus the King of their lives, people who trust in him and say yes to his free gift of forgiveness, life and friendship with God. It’s great to know the purpose, meaning, hope, peace and joy that come from trusting in Jesus and living for him.
