Our Beliefs & Values

We’re proud to have been birthed out of the Vineyard movement. And we share their values. You can read these in more detail here.

Faith in our Saviour and Lord, Jesus Christ, is the study of a lifetime. But we’re pretty sure you don’t have a lifetime to spend on a single web page. So we’ve summed up the core values of our faith here.

God

We believe God is our eternal King. Ancient, infinite Jehovah of the Old Testament is our living, reigning Father and King today. He is an infinite, unchangeable Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, goodness, justice, power and love. From all eternity He exists as the One living and true God in three persons of one substance: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are equal in power and glory.

The Kingdom

God’s Kingdom is everlasting. From His throne, through His Son, His eternal Word, God created, upholds and governs all that exists: the heavenly places, the angelic hosts, the universe, the earth, every living thing and mankind. God created all things very good.

Satan

Satan, originally a great, good angel, rebelled against God, taking a host of angels with him. He was cast out of God’s presence. As a usurper of God’s rule, he established a counter-kingdom of darkness and evil on the earth. Creation now experiences the consequences and effects of Adam’s original sin. Human beings are born in sin, subject to God’s judgement of death and captive to Satan’s kingdom of darkness.

Mankind

God created mankind in His own image, male and female, for relationship with Himself and to govern the earth. Under the temptation of Satan, our original parents fell from grace. This brought sin, sickness and God’s judgement of death to the earth. Through the fall, Satan and his demonic hosts gained access to God’s good creation. Creation now experiences the consequences and effects of Adam’s original sin. Human beings are born in sin, subject to God’s judgement of death, and captive to Satan’s kingdom of darkness.

Salvation

Every person ever born is in desperate need of a Saviour. We’re born sinful beings and only a perfect sacrifice can save us from the punishment we justly deserve. Jesus Christ is God – a member of the Trinity. He came to earth as a baby, perfect and sinless, and lived a fully human life, during which He taught us how to live godly lives. At the end of His life, He was crucified on a cross to pay the ultimate price for all mankind’s sin. On the third day after the crucifixion, Jesus was miraculously raised from death and now lives in heaven with God, interceding for us. Believing this truth changes our lives and frees us from the bondage of sin. This is the only way to be saved.
