Statement Of Faith

Introduction

For those who like to know to the nitty gritty of the basics of what a church believes we've included our statement of faith below. This statement of faith covers the foundational elements of our faith. For the doctrinal details of our church you will need to see our 16 unit Bible study course which is available on Pastor Simon's TeachingPages.co.uk ministry web site.

Basics of what we believe

As Evangelical Christians we accept the revelation of the triune God given in the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and confess the historic faith of the Gospel set forth in those Scriptures.

We here assert doctrines which we regard as crucial to the understanding of the faith, and which should issue in mutual love, practical Christian service and evangelical concern.

  • The sovereignty and grace of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit in creation, providence, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  • The divine inspiration of the Holy Scripture and its consequent entire trustworthiness and supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
  • The universal sinfulness and guilt of fallen man, making him subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
  • The substitutionary sacrifice of the incarnate Son of God as the sole all-sufficient ground of redemption from the guilt and power of sin, and from its eternal consequences.
  • The justification of the sinner solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ crucified and risen from the dead.
  • The illuminating, regenerating, indwelling and sanctifying work of God the Holy Spirit.
  • The priesthood of all believers, who form the universal Church, the Body of which Christ is the Head and which is committed by His command to the proclamation of the Gospel throughout the world.
  • The expectation of the personal, visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ in power and glory.
