This Is Hope
Love Neighbours. Make Disciples. Plant Churches.
See how we view God, Jesus, the Bible, man, and many significant aspects of our faith.
Learn the values that anchor our missions to love neighbours, make disciples, and plant churches.
What We Believe
We believe in every word of the Old and New Testaments as originally given, and that God inspired humans to write it without error. The Bible is the Word of God.
We believe in the one true and eternal God, the Creator of everything. God is one but exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who was supernaturally conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God who convicts people of sin and leads them to repent of their sin and place their faith in Jesus for salvation.
Angels, Satan and God’s Plan
We believe God created angelic beings for His service. They are supernatural but not divine. The Bible teaches that Satan, together with the many angels that follow him
We believe that God created man in His likeness and without sin but they sinned wilfully. As a consequence, sin entered the world and all mankind
We believe that we can be saved from God’s wrath when we confess and repent from sin and place our trust in Jesus Christ. Salvation is given by the grace of God
We believe that the church is the community of God’s people and central to God’s plan of salvation. Once we become Christians, we are adopted into God’s family
We believe that the dead will be raised and everyone will have to give account before God. All those who have put their faith in God will receive their reward
Baptism and Communion
We believe that all Christians should be water baptised in obedience to Jesus’ command and as a public testimony of their commitment to follow Him.
We believe that Christians must worship the Lord in spirit and in truth. Worship is acknowledging the worthiness of God and opening our hearts to relate to Him.
We believe it is normally God’s will for all mankind to be whole and healthy both physically and spiritually. The Church is vested with the authority of Jesus Christ
