Doctrine

We are Evangelical. This means that we believe in the divine inspiration and truth of the Bible (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and in its message that everyone needs to be made right with God through personal faith in Jesus Christ. As a result, we place a high value on preaching and teaching the Word of God.

We are Charismatic. This means that we believe that the infilling of the Holy Spirit is for today (John 1:33). This distinctive Christ-given experience releases men and women in worship, gifts, and ministries that bring encouragement to others and help to build the Church. We also seek to cultivate the fruit of the Spirit in our lives and relationships.

We are Apostolic. This means that we believe that Christ-given ministries (Ephesians 4:11) are still needed today by the Church to bring her to maturity and unity. These serving ministries should be honoured and received as they equip and release believers to do the will of God.

We believe in the Priesthood of all believers. This means that we do not accept a division between the ‘clergy’ and the ‘laity’. We believe that God has commissioned every single Christian to serve, minister and proclaim the Gospel. God has called every single Christian to bring His presence and His power to all those around them.

We believe in the power of Prayer and devote ourselves to individual and corporate prayer and intercession. We recognise that our own effort can never build the Kingdom of God , so we do our very best for God but also ask for the very best from God.
