The Bible is the infallible word of God and is the authority for all that we believe.

There is one God: Father, Son & Holy Spirit who created all things, including man within six days. (Genesis chapter 1)

God created man for His own honour and glory in His own holy image, sinless, but man disobeyed God and sinned: as a result all humans are born sinners.

God is pure, holy and just and must punish sin but He is also merciful and loving. Entirely of His free grace He sent  his only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, into the world to provide a way whereby sinners can be saved.

The Lord Jesus suffered and died on the cross (St. John 19 v 30) to bear the punishment for the sins of all those who are brought to believe and trust in Him.

The Lord Jesus rose from the dead (St. Luke 24 v 6) and now lives for ever to bring to heaven His people for whom He died and it is they who will be with Him in Heaven for eternity.

Those who do not believe and trust in the Lord Jesus' death and resurrection will themselves have to bear Gods's eternal punishment for their sins.
