What we believe

Our formal Statement of Faith can be read here.

We believe that the bible is God's Word and is absolutely true.

The Holy Spirit brings it alive to us here today, even though

parts of it were written over 3500 years ago. Hopefully you'll

see just what we mean if you come and visit us one Sunday.

We believe that God is a loving Father who wants us all to understand just how passionate he is about each and every one of us. We can all know him personally and experience his unfailing and unconditional love, no matter who we are, what we've done or what we've been through.

We believe that Jesus is God's son and the first in the largest family that's ever been. The bible tells us that he came to earth as a man and died for us, but that God raised him to life again. We can be saved only by believing and trusting in Jesus - there is no other way to know God as Father.

The Holy Spirit is the person through whom God reveals His power today. We accept that the Holy Spirit gives many different gifts as he sees fit to help build up the church and our personal walk with God, and we encourage their use in our meetings and in our personal lives.

Praise and worship is a very important part of our lives and it is therefore an important part of CBCF. We believe that God asks us to praise him, but find that it's something we want to do more and more as we get to know him. We do this in various ways, including singing, praying and reading the bible.

We believe in the power of prayer. We believe that God listens to us as we pray to him and that he always provides an answer to us, even if sometimes it's not quite what we expected to hear or see.
