The congregation is made up of ordinary people from different backgrounds - young and old, single people and families. But what bonds us together as a Christian community is our common, personal relationship with God, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.
Acting as our substitute, Christ suffered and died in our place. In His love for us, He bore in Himself the punishment for our sin. So now we can know God’s forgiveness, and enjoy our inclusion in His family.
We meet together, not to earn our forgiveness, but to thank God for the forgiveness we already have through faith in Jesus Christ. His death and resurrection is enough to save even the worst of sinners from an eternity in hell. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done; rather, it is only by God’s grace that anyone is saved.
The Bible is our sole authority. We look to it, under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit, to see how we should live as Christians in the 21st Century.
