Bransgore Community Church


Values and Culture

Our beliefs and aspirations can be summed up by the following three acronyms:

 

We Believe in 'CHRIST'*

CreationThe one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who created and sustains everything.

HumansWe were made in the image of God but rebelled and became separated from him.

RescueFaith in Jesus Christ restores that relationship through his death and resurrection.

Indwelling SpiritThe Holy Spirit is our internal guide, who helps us follow God’s ways.

ScriptureThe Bible is divinely inspired and the primary way in which we know God.

Triumphant return: Jesus will return as judge and establish a new heaven and new earth.

(*Note - This is a summary of the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith that we adhere to)

 

We Behave with 'GRACE'
