Our Beliefs & Practices

“For you are saved by grace through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift — not from works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

Cross

One True God

We believe in the Triune God (the Trinity): the Father, creator of all; Jesus Christ, the Son, who died for our sins and rose to life again; and the Holy Spirit, who guides all Christians spiritually.

Grace Alone

We believe that God loves all the people of the world, even though we are disobedient of Him and do not deserve His love. It is by God’s kindness alone that we can maintain our relationship with Him.

Faith Alone

We believe that by His suffering and death that substitutes for all people for all time, our Lord Jesus Christ won forgiveness and eternal life for all those who believe in Him. It is only by placing our trust in Christ that God gives people forgiveness. We cannot earn this forgiveness by our own efforts.

Scripture Alone

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and that it has final authority for all our Christian beliefs and practices. We give no weight to traditions that contradict our understanding of the Bible. We believe that God’s Word is always clear, even though our fallible human interpretation may not always be as clear. It is important for us to improve our understanding of the Scripture continuously.

Open to All

We believe that only God has the authority to pass judgement on people. We welcome people of all background who are respectful and are genuinely interested in learning about Jesus, regardless of their religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations or current life situations.


Sacraments

We practise the sacred acts of Baptism and Holy Communion.

Baptism

Baptism

We believe in one Baptism, that is Baptism physically by the water and spiritually by the Holy Spirit together at the same time. We recognise all Baptisms performed in the name of the Triune God.

We practise the Baptism of infants and young children. To us, Baptism is not a sign or a declaration of faith. Baptism is a means of Grace through which we receive the new birth in the Spirit. Baptism is the way by which both adults and children enter God’s Kingdom.

Holy Communion

We believe that Christ’s body and blood are truly present in the bread and the wine during Holy Communion. As we join in this meal together as Christians, we receive God’s blessing.

We practise open Communion. We welcome all who have been baptised and believe in Jesus Christ to take part in the Lord’s Supper.
