If you want to learn the basics of Christianity, we encourage you to watch the Two Ways to Live presentation:
What We Believe About The Bible
God clearly teaches us about Himself through the Bible. In this divine book, God explains to us how we can live in a good relationship with Him. The Bible is wholly correct, and we accept this Word of God as a pattern for our daily lives.
“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17
What We Believe About The Message Of The Bible
Our first parents, Adam and Eve, rebelled against God. They chose not to obey Him by eating fruit of the forbidden tree in the Garden of Eden. In His mercy, He promised to look after them forever and therefore made a covenant with them.
We, too, share in this rebellion. The Bible says that each one of us is corrupt; we are unable to seek God or please Him on our own.
“As it is written: There is no one righteous, not even one; there is no one who understands, no one who seeks God.” Romans 3:10-11
But God did not abandon His people.
The good news is that God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, into the world. He was able to obey God perfectly and He fulfilled all of God’s requirements. If we confess to God our rebellion and sin and believe in Him, we can look forward to a renewed relationship with God, one that will last forever.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
If you don’t believe in Christ as Lord and Saviour…
In thankfulness to God, we are to live lives that are pleasing to Him, according to the instructions found in His Word, the Bible. Our purpose is to honour and glorify God, not only through our worship services, but through the way we live our lives each day. God has given us the Holy Spirit, who lives inside all believers, to help us know how to live for Him.
“Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–this is your spiritual act of worship. Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is–his good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:1-2
Summaries of our faith
A more extensive summary of our faith is expressed in the Three Ecumenical Creeds (the Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed) and the Three Forms of Unity (Belgic Confession, Heidelberg Catechism, and Canons of Dort).
