While our different activities vary in style to be inclusive and relevant for everyone, central to them all is our firm belief in the authority of Scripture as the necessary pattern for daily living and pathway to assurance of eternity with God. Hence, the emphasis we place on Bible teaching and the encouragement of personal Bible study.
Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path. I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws. I have suffered much; preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word. Accept, O Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws. Though I constantly take my life in my hands, I will not forget your law. The wicked have set a snare for me, but I have not strayed from your precepts. Your statutes are my heritage forever; they are the joy of my heart. My heart is set on keeping your decrees to the very end.
Psalm 119: 105-112

God’s love is something beyond comprehension. To think he calls Jewish people and Gentile people to belong to his people. No wonder John Newton composed the hymn ‘Amazing Grace’. So what’s it all about?

At the beginning of 2017, we are consciously seeking to be nearer what a church should be and to help us we are seeking to understand and act upon what the Bible has to say about the Church.
