What We Believe

We believe in living out our Christian faith as effectively
as possible, making an impact with those who do not
know the great news about Jesus Christ.

We believe we should share the good news of Jesus, equip people in their faith journey and see them live their faith out, in the world.

Coverdale Baptist Church Basis of Faith

We believe in …..

 1. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons
    the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

2. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining,

    ruling, redeeming and judging the world.

3. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New

    Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God

    —fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.

4. The dignity of all people, made male and female in God's image
     to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin,

     which incurs divine wrath and judgement.

5. The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ

     —born of the Virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

6. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place,

     paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

7. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection;

     His ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the

     only Saviour of the world.

8. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.

9. The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us to repentance,

     unites us with Christ through new birth, thereby bringing us into an intimate

     relationship with Father, Son and Holy Spirit that empowers our

     discipleship and enables our witness.

10. The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal,

       the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed

       with the Spirit's gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel,

       promoting justice and love.

11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God,

       who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed

       and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
