What we believe

As a church it is our aim to give Glory to God, through His eternal Son the Lord Jesus Christ, by the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. Our message is the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. Christ alone saves people from sin and death. By the grace of God, we put our faith in Him alone. We regard the Bible to be the inspired Word of God. We seek to be holistic in our Sunday worship, by giving glory and praise to God in our singing, our prayers of thanks and intercession, in our offering, in fellowship with one another and through the encouragement we receive from the preaching, which is based on the Bible.

We serve God with gladness and joy in hearts as we rejoice in the One who has set us on an eternal journey to be with Him.
