Our vision is to be a church where people flourish, growing in the knowledge and love of God and reaching out in the spirit of generosity

WHAT WE BELIVE

As a member of the Elim Pentecostal movement, we have a set of beliefs known as our Foundational Truths.

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

THE TRINITY

We believe that the Godhead exists co-equally and co-eternally in three persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and that these three are one God, sovereign in creation, providence and redemption.

JESUS

We love Jesus and believe he was both God and human. We are thrilled he gave his life for us and believe we can only be right with God when we receive his gift of life and grace.

SALVATION

We believe every human being needs to be saved from sin and its consequence and no amount of good and charitable work can make us right before God. Acceptance of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the answer to sinfulness in human and believe we only be justified before God by faith in Jesus Christ.

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible, as originally given, to be without error, the fully inspired and infallible Word of God and the supreme and final authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

MANKIND

We believe in the universal sinfulness of all men since the Fall, rendering man subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We acknowledge that without the divine Holy Spirit we would never be drawn to Jesus Christ. We love his transforming work in our lives and believe his gifts are needed to build God’s church and fulfill the mission of the kingdom

THE CHURCH

We believe in the spiritual unity and the priesthood of all believers in Christ and that these comprise the universal Church, the Body of Christ.

THE MINISTRY

We believe in the ministries that Christ has set in His Church, namely, apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers and in the present operation of the manifold Gifts of the Holy Spirit according to the New Testament.

THE ORDINANCES

We believe in the baptism of believers in water in obedience to the command of Christ and the commemoration of Christ’s death by the observance of the Lord’s Supper until His return.

THE COMMISSION

We believe that the Gospel embraces the needs of the whole man and that the Church is therefore commissioned to preach the Gospel to the world and to fulfil a ministry of healing and deliverance to the spiritual and physical needs of mankind.

THE FUTURE STATE

We believe in the resurrection of the dead and in the final judgement of the world, the eternal conscious bliss of the righteous and the eternal conscious punishment of the wicked
