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 that good news of Jesus, equip people in their faith journey and see them live their faith out, in the world. At CBC we believe in the one true God who lives eternally in three persons – the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


God the Father

We believe in God the Father, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He infallibly foreknows all that shall come to pass, that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of each person, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.

We believe in the love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
 

Jesus Christ

We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, perpetual intercession for His people and personal visible return to earth.
 
We believe in the atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil so reconciling those who repent and forsake sin and trust in Jesus Christ with God. The justification of sinners is solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
 

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgement and to regenerate, sanctify and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ, and that he is an abiding helper, teacher and guide.
 

The Word of God

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, fully inspired and without error, written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit; and that it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
 

The Church

We believe in the universal Church, the living spiritual body of which Christ is head and all regenerated persons are members. We believe in the local church, consisting of a company of believers in Jesus Christ, baptised on a credible profession of faith and associated as a priesthood of believers for worship, work and fellowship.
 

The last things

We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord 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 a new earth.

Some key information about the church...

 

Where & when does the church meet?

Our Church usually meets every Sunday at 10.30am and 7pm for our Sunday Services. Aim to arrive 10 minutes early to ensure you get a parking spot and seat in time for the service to start. You can park in either the car park behind the Church or the Hunter House car park next door to the Church.

We meet at:

What should I expect when I visit the church?

You will receive a very warm welcome particularly from our Welcome Team who will be able to answer your questions and direct you to where you need to go.

In our morning service, there will be around 45 minutes of worship with the whole Church family when there will be singing, prayer, and a children's message. At this point, the children will leave for their own Sunday Club. The Bible will then be read and one of our Pastors or leaders will preach from God's word. The service usually finishes around 12noon.

In our evening service, we usually spend about 20 minutes singing and praying before the Bible is read and preached. Our evening service usually finishes around 8pm.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are served after all of our services where there is plenty of time to meet new people and ask more questions.
 

What happens to the kids at church?

We have a fantastic programme for the kids at our Church. Children stay with their parents at the start of the service as we worship together for the first part of the morning. Someone will announce when the children need to go to their programme.

We have a very gifted team of Sunday Club teachers who lead a great curriculum for all ages. We have the following Sunday Club classes:

0-3 years:     Creche
3-5 years:     Pre-School Sunday Club 
P1 - P7:        Sunday Club
S1 - S3:        Bible Class
 
For more information about our Sunday Club please visit our Sunday Club page.
 

Is there a dress code?

No! Please just be yourself and come dressed in your 'normal' clothes.
 

Will I have to join in?

Not at all!
You are free to simply observe or participate as much as feels comfortable for you.
