THE KINGDOM

We believe that at Christ’s resurrection He inaugurated His Kingdom on this earth. At His second coming, His kingdom will be fully realized and experienced: a redeemed humanity will enjoy immortal resurrection bodies as they celebrate God’s presence and grace forever in the new heaven and new earth, a world purged of all suffering, injustice, sin and death. The church is to live in joyful anticipation of this certain future. We do this through proclaiming the gospel, living counter –cul...

JUDGEMENT

We believe God is grieved and angered by sin, unbelief and rebellion. He promises to judge everything and everyone that contradicts his character and defies his will. Everyone lives once, and then faces God on Judgment Day, an event that will follow the return of Christ. Depending on whether we spurn or embrace Christ and his grace in this life, we will either suffer eternal condemnation without him, or be received into eternal communion with him.

This calling is only possible through continual reliance on the Spirit’s presence, power and leadership. The Spirit reveals the Father and the Son to us, pouring out th...

He lived a sinless life that was marked by casting out demons, miracles and preaching the Kingdom of God. He related to the Father with perfect obedience and intimacy.
