What we Believe
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, was raised from the dead and is at the right hand of the Father as true God & true Man [Matthew 1:18-25, Romans 9:5, Hebrews 12:2].
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired, infallible, authoritative Word of God and should be the supreme and final authority in our lives [2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21].
We believe in one God who exists and reveals himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit [Deuteronomy 6:4, 2 Corinthians 13:4, Matthew 28:19].
We believe in the necessity of the work of the Holy Spirit to make the death of Christ effective in the individual sinner, granting them repentance towards God and faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that all mankind was created in the image of God. But all have fallen, are guilty and subject to His wrath and condemnation. Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin is found only through the sacrificial death of Jesus, the incarnate Son of God, who died as our representative and substitute [Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23; 5:1; 6:23. Ephesians 1:7].
We believe in the personal return of our Lord Jesus Christ and the subsequent bodily resurrection of the just and the unjust. The saved to everlasting joy and the lost to everlasting punishment [Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17, 2 Corinthians 5:10, Revelation 20:4-6].
We believe that the church is comprised of those who acknowledge Jesus as Lord and Saviour and that Scripture instructs believers to identify and regularly assemble with other believers to devote themselves to prayer, teaching of the Bible, fellowship and works of service [Hebrews 10:24-25, Acts 2:42-47, 16:5].
WHO IS JESUS?
Understanding who Jesus Christ is and what He has done is a life changing event for everyone. This is because it relates to the decision that we have to make to either listen to God or ignore Him and His word.
But who is Jesus? What sort of man is He?
We believe that Jesus Christ was born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, was raised from the dead and is at the right hand of the Father as true God and true Man.
[Matthew 1:18-25, Romans 9:5, Hebrews 12:2]
“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15)
At Pitt Town Church we believe that Jesus' death and resurrection gives us the opportunity to be in a relationship with God. On the cross Jesus paid the price for our sin so that we could come to know our God.
