What We Believe

Vision Statement

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations baptising them in the name of the Father and of The Son and of The Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you and surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Mission Statement

We are followers of Jesus Christ, a faith and multicultural church reaching people with the message of the gospel and the love of Jesus, with a passion of seeing lives transformed in Stratford upon Avon, Warwickshire and the Nations.

Statement of Faith

We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God, the infallible, all sufficient rule for faith and conduct.

We believe in the unity of the One True and Living God who is the Eternal, Self-Existent “I AM”, who has also revealed Himself as One being co-existing in the three persons — Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Virgin Birth, Sinless Life, Miraculous Ministry, Atoning Death, Bodily Resurrection,Triumphant Ascension and Abiding Intercession of the Lord Jesus Christ and in His personal, visible, bodily return in power and glory as the blessed hope of all believers.

We believe in the fall of man, who was created pure and upright but fell by voluntary transgression.

We believe in salvation through faith in Christ, who, according to the Scriptures, died for our sins, was buried and was raised from the dead on the third day, and that through His blood we have redemption. This experience is also known as the new birth, and is an instantaneous and complete operation of the Holy Spirit upon initial faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who have truly repented and believed in Christ as Lord and Saviour are commanded to be baptised by immersion in water.

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit as an endowment of the believer with power for service, the essential biblical evidence of which is speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.

We believe in the operation of the gifts of the Holy Spirit and the gifts of Christ (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastor-teachers) in the church today.

We believe in holiness of life and conduct in obedience to the command of God.

We believe that deliverance from sickness by Divine Healing is provided for in the atonement.

We believe that all who have truly repented and believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour should regularly participate in Breaking of Bread (Communion).

We believe that all, regardless of denomination or background, are loved and valued by God.

We believe that God created male and female in His image to join together in marriage in which the two become one physically.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of all men, the everlasting conscious bliss of all who truly believe in our Lord Jesus Christ and the everlasting penalty of all whose names are not written in the Book of Life.
