Bethany Church

What we believe

We believe:

* That the Bible is the inspired Word of God
* In one God in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit equal and eternal
* God, in the person of the Lord Jesus Christ, has revealed Himself to man
* In Jesus' virgin birth, sinless life and character, His voluntary death on the cross as a perfect sacrifice for sin
* In His bodily resurrection, followed by His ascension to heaven in glory
* In His personal return to earth to take all true believers to Himself for ever, and to establish His kingdom
* That the Holy Spirit works in man to fulfil God's purpose
* That forgiveness and eternal life are God's gifts to those who, in repentance and faith, receive Christ as Saviour and confess Him as Lord; but that those who refuse Him will experience eternal banishment from God's presence. Therefore that real hope and peace can only come from a personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

We practice baptism of true believers by total immersion.

Each Lord's day we share the Lord's supper (or breaking of bread), simply as instituted by Jesus Himself.
