One God

... there is only one true God who is the eternal King, Creator and Redeemer of all that is. He is perfectly holy, just, loving and truthful and always good. He has revealed Himself to be eternally self-existent — One being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

Creation

... humankind was created in the image of God to know and enjoy Him, yet we wilfully rejected the Lordship and glory of God for which we were intended. Because of this, sickness, death and judgment entered the world and now creation experiences the effects and consequences of sin.

Bible

... the Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative Word of God.

Son of God

... the Lord Jesus Christ, the one and only Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin, Mary, and is God's Anointed One, who lived a perfect and sinless life empowered by the Holy Spirit to inaugurate God's Kingdom on Earth. He was crucified for our sins, died, was buried, resurrected and ascended into Heaven, and is now alive today, in the presence of God the Father and in His people. He is ‘true God’ and ‘true man’.

Salvation

... we are saved by God's grace alone, through faith alone in the person and completed work of Jesus Christ.

Restoration

... anyone can be restored to fellowship with God through repenting, believing and receiving Jesus as their Saviour and Lord. The Holy Spirit, convicts, regenerates, justifies, and adopts us as we enter the Kingdom of God as His sons and daughters.

Sanctification

... in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life and minister super-naturally. Baptism of the Holy Spirit is poured out on believers that they might have power to be witnesses.

Church

... the Church consists of all who put their faith in Messiah Jesus. He gave His church the ordinances of Baptism and Communion. It exists to carry on the ministry of Jesus and further advance His Kingdom by undoing the works of the enemy, speaking and living the good news of God's love, discipling nations, baptising and teaching all to love and follow God.

Reasons why people don't go to church

Church — What defines you?

Redemption

... in the victorious redemptive work of Messiah on the cross provides freedom from the power of the enemy; sin, lies, sickness and torment.

Return

... in the ever increasing government of God and in the Blessed Hope, which is the glorious visible and bodily return of our Lord Jesus Christ for His overcoming bride His Church.

Heaven

... Heaven and hell are real places. There will be a resurrection of the saved and the lost, both to everlasting life, the destination being determined through personally receiving Messiah Jesus as Saviour and Lord.
