We are a group of quite ordinary human beings who have experienced the transforming power of Jesus Christ in our lives, and believe that if God can do that for the sort of people we were, He can do it for anyone!
We believe God’s promises in the Bible are all genuine, and that when Jesus says, “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”, He is able to deliver! We have found that all God’s promises in the Bible in some way find their fulfilment in Jesus Christ, Who is the person God has appointed as Head of the Church. He is the person we worship, and the Head of our local church.
We believe that each one of us has been placed into this particular church in Exmouth for a reason. We want to grow together in our knowledge of God and our obedience to Him, as we learn from Him in the Holy Scriptures and put into practise what we learn. We want to become a community where God’s command to love each other is shown more and more clearly as we grow in faith!
We also want to be a community that reaches out to others, to share the tremendous riches that God has given us. The Bible says that God wants everyone to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth, so we want to do our utmost to help people to turn away from going their own way and to come to know Him for themselves.
None of this would be possible without God’s help, and we believe that He gives us this through a very special gift – His own Holy Spirit, poured into the lives of believers to bring a real experience of life, of joy, of hope and of faith to everyone who confesses his or her sin and turns in faith to Christ. The Holy Spirit makes the Christian life an exciting journey of faith in God’s service!
