There are three words that are very important to us - faith, family and fun!
Our faith is front and centre of all that we do. It is the lens through which we see everything. We are passionate about our faith and want to see it proclaimed to the whole world. Our heart is to see all the world acknowledge the one true God, as revealed in Holy Scripture.
We believe in God the Father who created all things; that He created a perfect world that has fallen through sin. Because of that sin, the Father sent His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord, to come to earth to show His love for all by His death and resurrection. That through His death and resurrection and on the confession of our sins, we are forgiven for all our wrongs. With the help of the Holy Spirit, and until Jesus returns, we are called to grow in faith, help others to know God and demonstrate His love to all people.
We believe that church should feel like a family. A family where all are welcome, whatever their age, status or background. A family where we care for each other and grow together. A family where, whatever our differences, we seek unity as we seek to grow closer to God. A family which is always growing, both in terms of people and love. A family where it is safe to laugh and safe to cry. A family that is marked by the love of God and changed because of His love for us.
We want to celebrate all that God has done for us by living lives marked by joy. In good times and bad times, we want to rejoice in all that the Lord has done. We take comfort in the fact that He is with us in all circumstances. We want to have fun as we grow in our knowledge of the love of God.

We believe that The Bible is the Word of God, and therefore it is the authority of our faith and our lives. As a church we are totally committed to preaching, teaching, and, through the power of the Holy Spirit, attempting to live The Bible and its commands.
The Nicene Creed contains a summary of our core beliefs as a church.
We believe in one God, the Father, the almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is, seen and unseen.
We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten, not made, of one Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us and for our salvation he came down from heaven; by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary, and was made man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. On the third day he rose again in accordance with the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son, who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who has spoken through the Prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins. We look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come.
