WHAT WE BELIEVE
As Christians, we believe that it is our responsibility to share the word of Christ with, and to the benefit of, the people of Northern Moor; we have outlined a number of our core values and our statement of faith below.
We are a Community Church wanting to share God's love with the people of Northern Moor; we seek to model, encourage, and develop community as God intends it.
We think church should be fun and we aim to share the joy and excitement of knowing Jesus when we meet together.
Our God is a creative God and our praise & worship should not be boring - we play a mixture of modern songs and classic hymns using guitars, keyboards, drums, and even a ukulele.
God Our Father invites each one of us to share our life experiences and we encourage those at our meetings to share how God has changed their lives for the better.
God is generous, and we look to give back what He has given us - food, resources, and skills.
We usually share lunch together on the first Sunday of each month - come and join us.
Prayer works! We meet weekly to pray for each other, for those we know in Northern Moor, and for the wider world.
Jesus told us " I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly" and we hope you see this in our Church.
Statement of Faith
Our statement of faith is the fundamentals of what we believe as Christians.
We believe ...
... In one true God, our Father, in Jesus His Son and in the Holy Spirit, separate yet the same.
... In one loving God who reigns in all the world.
... In God's living Word contained in the Old and New Testaments, powerful, true and essential for Christian living.
... That we are all made in God's image, unique and unconditionally loved, yet we often wander into disobedience and failure.
... In Jesus, born human and yet divine, perfect without any disobedience or failure
... That we are reunited with our Father God through the perfect sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, taking the punishment that we alone deserve for our disobedience and failure.
... That Jesus rose physically from the dead, was seen by many people and later ascended into heaven. He is the first to be resurrected with the promise that we will also follow.
... That all can be reunited to our Father God through faith in Jesus. It is all about His redeeming work and we alone can do nothing to make ourselves right with God.
We welcome the personal presence, power, and work of the Holy Spirit in our church, in our community and in our personal lives.
We recognise the Church, locally and worldwide, as the home for all believers to come together in worship and fellowship, to share the Good News of Jesus, and to bring God's justice and love to all.
We look to the return of Jesus to fulfill all our Father promised in His Word, including judgement for all, but also to the promise of eternal life for those who believe in his Son, to the coming of a new heaven and a new earth where we will live with Him for eternity.
