We meet together weekly to remember the Lord Jesus, and we do so in the way described by Paul in his first letter to the Corinthian Believers, where they (and we) are reminded that “ ... the Lord Jesus, in the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread: and when he had given thanks, he broke it, and said: ‘Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.’  After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying: ‘This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.’ ”


The letter then continues with these words: “For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he come” (1. Corinthians 11:23. - 26).


We baptise, by full immersion in water, people who have repented of their sins and have put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.  It is normal for someone who has experienced the forgiveness of God to have a desire to obey him, and since the Lord Jesus commands that all believers be baptised in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, obedience to this command is an excellent first step.


Baptism identifies believers with the death, burial and resurrection of Christ and indicates their willing acceptance of the fact that God has called them to walk “in newness of life” (Romans 6:4). The Bible defines baptism with great clarity as “the answer of a good conscience toward God” (1. Peter 3:21).

Things we believe and teach

God


There is one God, the living God, who is the Creator, Sustainer,

and Ruler of all things (Deuteronomy 6:4).  He is infinite, eternal, unchanging, and is revealed to us as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 2. Corinthians 13:14).  When the Bible uses the term “the Godhead,” it refers to the eternal co-existence and unity of these three distinct persons.


In John 4:23-24, Christ speaks of worshipping the Father, and states: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”


In John chapter 1. and verse 1, we read: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

Then, in verse 14. of the same chapter, we read: “.. the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us …”  “The Word” is one of the names by which Christ is known.  See also Revelation 19:13.


In Acts 5, verses 3. and 4, Ananias, who was guilty of lying to the Holy Spirit, was told in no uncertain terms that he had lied to God.
