In a nutshell, we believe that Jesus Christ, second person of the Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), came to earth and died on the cross to save us from our sins (our rebellion against God). Three days later, he rose to new life and is in heaven now.
We believe that the sacrifice Jesus made for us is complete, and freely given to us. And we believe that Jesus has called us all to respond to Him by repenting of our sinfulness and putting our faith in Him as our Lord and Saviour. If we do that, we are saved. The only alternative is our eternal punishment.
We believe that one day Jesus Christ is coming again, and when he does he will judge the living and the dead, and those who have believed in him and placed their trust in him by faith will go to be with him for eternity.
So we do our best to live our lives in a way that honours God – not because being good will save us, but because we’re grateful that God has already saved us.
Hopefully you can see why we think this is important! We call it the gospel (literally the ‘good news’ – that Jesus has made a way for us to be set free to be with him).
There’s lots more we believe, but that’s the most important bits.
Alternatively – an even better way to find out more is to join a Christianity Explored course. We run these from time to time, so if you’re interested, let us know.
