We believe that the Old and New Testaments of the Bible represent the inspired written Word of God which is intended from start to finish to reveal Jesus, the Living Word made flesh (2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:19-21, John 5:39, Colossians 2:16-17)
We believe the only way that God has made provision for all of us to enjoy that kind of life is through a personal and intimate relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ (John 8:31-32, John 14:6, 1John 5:12)
We believe that the only means of clearly understanding the Truth of God, about ourselves, indeed about life in all of its dimensions is through the life, death, burial, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ (John 5:26, John 14:6, Hebrews 1:1-3)
We believe that the Cross of Jesus Christ reveals the following Truths:
God is a good God and that He is good all the time (Romans 5:8, James 1:17, 1 John 1:5) .
That God has given us the gift of righteousness and as a result He finds us totally acceptable, not because of anything we do or don't do but because of what Jesus did (Romans 5:17, 2 Corinthians 5:21, Ephesians 1:3-6)
That God gives us His Grace (i.e. His power, strength and ability) to live the abundant life, as we are incapable of experiencing it in our own ability. (Ephesians 2:8,2, 2Timothy 1:9, Romans 5:17, 2 Corinthians 12:9)
