"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16 NIV
We believe all people were created by God to be in relationship with Him. To this day it is His desire to walk with us because he loves us as sons and daughters.
However, we live in an imperfect world and God's standard of perfection is impossible to achieve without his grace.
God desires a relationship with us so much that he sent his only son, Jesus, to earth to show us how to live like him and to pay the price of our wrongdoing, by dying on a Roman cross. An innocent man, dying a criminals death.
Salvation is a free gift offered by our Father in Heaven to all. The thing is, it is our choice whether we want to live our lives with him. He has his arm extended to us, ready for us to take hold of as and when we choose.
We believe a relationship with God begins with a commitment to follow him and a desire to live more like Jesus. This relationship grows as we put our faith in him and connect with a church community to support us in our journey with Christ. You can read more about Jesus' life on earth in the Bible starting in the book of Matthew.
If you would like to talk to someone further about beginning a relationship with Jesus please get in touch with one of our pastors by calling the church office on (09) 271 1911 or by joining us at our church services on Sunday.
