Overview of Gospel Ministry




What we believe


Our Christian faith is at the heart of what we think, do and say. Here is a simple summary of what we believe.

Bible - The Bible is without error, and is the inspired Word of God. It is a message revealed by God, with God's authority, to which we must submit in all matters of faith and life.

Unity of the Godhead - There is a unity of the Godhead, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are one true, eternal God, equal in power and glory.

God - God is the Creator and Preserver of all things, who created humankind, male and female, in His own image, and gave them dominion over the earthly creation. 

Jesus Christ - Jesus is fully God and fully man. He has two natures that cannot be separated. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a perfect life among us, was crucified, was dead, and buried, rose on the third day and ascended to heaven.

Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit is one with the Father and the Son. He lives eternally within the hearts of each believer, empowering them to be more like Christ. 

Humankind - Since Adam and Eve, all humankind has sinned and so become subject to God’s judgement and wrath.

Salvation - Salvation from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only comes through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as our representative and substitute. This is extended to all who repent of their sin and trust in him alone for salvation to a new and eternal life. A person who is saved by God, based entirely on faith in Christ’s death on the cross, has assurance of salvation and all the rights and privileges of a child of God.

Christians - Every Christian has a responsibility, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to live in a way that brings glory to God and this is a life of holiness and good works, summed up by the law of love for God and neighbour.

Church - Christ has established a visible church, His people, who are called to live in the power of the Holy Spirit, preaching the gospel of Christ, in obedience to the Scriptures and in community, to encourage lives of discipleship.
