We are all ordinary people from different cultures and backgrounds who have been saved and brought together by an extraordinary God. Whilst we are all from different nations, we share the same story of hope and joy. Jesus came into the world to save us from our sins and give us a new life with Him. This good news has saved us, changed us and brought us together into this wonderful family of God. We are really keen to see people from all nations come to know Jesus and find new life with Him.
Our mission is to prepare people for Christ's return,
to the glory of God. We do this by:
We adore Christ as our Lord, worshiping Him as we place our whole life under His rule.
We build the body of Christ, speaking the truth in love so that we might all grow to be like Christ, our head.
We joyfully welcome people from all nations whom Christ is bringing to Himself, removing any divisions and accepting one another as brothers and sisters in Christ.
We send believers into the world as ambassadors & servants of Christ, spreading the life-giving message of Jesus & practically showing love to others.
Jesus teaches us that we lead by serving others. All of our leaders take this calling very seriously and always seek to follow Jesus' example by putting others before themselves.

We are keen to ensure that our church remains a loving and united family that seeks the welfare of one another. Our leaders take the responsibility they have to love and care for those they lead very seriously. If you ever have any questions, concerns or grievances regarding anyone in leadership in our church, we encourage you to seek resolution with this person over the issue.

We believe in one eternal God who exists in loving relationship as Father, Son and Holy Spirit - one God in three persons, as God has revealed through His word and as the church has confessed in the Nicene and Apostle's Creeds.
We believe that God is absolutely sovereign, and predestines all things in accordance with His will.
We believe that we are saved from sin and judgement by grace alone. Our salvation is a gift from God, not something that we have earned. Therefore, no one can boast about their salvation but rather receive it with humility and thanksgiving.
We believe that we are made right with God (justified) through faith in Jesus Christ. We are not made righteous through our own works, but only through trusting in what Jesus has done for us through His death and resurrection.
We believe that only Jesus Christ can save us from our sins and bring us back to God. Dying for us, he took the punishment for our sins; rising again, he gave new life to those who trust in Him. He is the way, the truth and the life, and no one can come to the Father, except through Him.
We believe that all of the Bible is God's living word for us and is sufficient in clearly teaching us how we can be saved through Jesus and how to live God's way. We believe that God speaks to us through the Bible and that any other claims of truth must always be tested against what the Bible says.
Glory to God Alone
We believe that God is worthy of all honour, glory and praise. God first created us so that we would worship Him. He has now called us out of darkness and back into His wonderful light so that we might worship Him again, declaring His praises, honouring His name and living for His glory.
