Church membership

Church membership is important. For us, belonging starts with being part of a mid-week Life Group. Community is an important part of being part of God’s family and membership ties in with that. Church membership is a covenant that you enter into, with God’s people to belong, to love, to encourage and to worship alongside others. Part of our covenant is trying to follow what Jesus sets out in the scriptures for us.

Living as a disciple of Jesus

A Christian is someone who repents of their sin and who trusts in Jesus’ work on the cross, to save them from God’s wrath for an eternity with God. A Christian believes in the Trinitarian nature of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and will be baptised in obedience to Jesus instruction. A Christian is a person who follows Jesus as they live for his glory.
