What to expect:

Great singing: "One of the things that impacted me from the start was the singing. You can hear that everyone's hearts are into it and that they truly enjoy worshipping God." ~ Mlu

Encouraging sermons: "The sermons are incredibly inspiring. From listening to the preacher and applying what is said to my life, I am able to change the parts of my character which are contrary to what God wants for me. The sermons encourage my spritual maturity and grow my faith" ~ Terry

Friendly people: "I've been to many different churches in the past and I've never seen a place where people are so eager to get to know one another. You can also see that people here are sincere and really have a heart to learn from one another." ~ Mlu

What is available for my kids: "Kids' Zone has the mission to make the time spent in each class the BEST hour and a half of a child’s week. This is done by instilling a knowledge and love for God that will lay the foundation for an intimate relationship with God: a relationship made to last deep into adulthood. Each class has lessons formulated to suit developmental ages and individual needs. Children’s Church is about having fun in a safe and God-focused environment." ~ Brenda

What we believe:

  1. There is only one true God who reveals himself to the world as the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19; Ephesians 4:4-6)
  2. The whole Bible is God’s message of love for all mankind. It was inspired by the Holy Spirit and is without error. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21; Psalm 119:160)
  3. Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is our one and only saviour. He was crucified for our sins and was physically resurrected from the dead on the third day. (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; 1 Corinthians 15)
  4. We are saved by the grace of God through the blood of Jesus. We must, through faith and obedience to God’s Word, accept this gift of salvation. (Ephesians 1:3-10; Matthew 7:21-23; James 2:14-26)
  5. As with the first Christians, when we repent and are baptised, our sins are forgiven and we receive the Holy Spirit to help us live a righteous life. (Acts 2:36-41; 1 Peter 3:21; Romans 6:3-7 and Romans 8:5-17)
  6. Every Christian has a mission to share this good news by teaching others to be disciples of Christ, by baptizing them and by continuing to help them mature in their faith. (Matthew 28:18-20; Colossians 3:16)
  7. All Church members must be encouraged to grow in their own conviction through personal Bible studies. (Acts 17:11; 2 Timothy 2:15)
  8. We must teach our children to love God and one another. We try hard to make our children's classes the highlight of their week. (Matthew 18:10-14; Mark 10:13-16; Ephesians 6:4)
  9. As disciples of Christ, we should all have a heart for the poor. We run a number of benevolent programs that allow every member to be involved. (Matthew 25:31-46; Proverbs 19:17; Galatians 2:10)
  10. We must love one another and serve one another, as Jesus did. (Matthew 20:25-28) “A new command I give you: love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35)
