Confession of faith

Like all C.E.R.B.I. churches we have adopted the Baptist Confession of Faith of 1689.

In brief we believe that :


  • all Scriptures are the inspired and unerring Word of God
  • there is only one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit
  • man rebelled and disobeyed God: as a sinner he is lost, blind, and without hope
  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth, died and rose again as a ransom for our sins
  • it is the Holy Spirit who enlightens each believer, regenerating and transforming him or her
  • all who, by faith believe in the Lord Jesus are justified and belong to the Universal Church of Christ
  • the Church of Christ has two ordinances, baptism and the Lord’s supper, which visibly celebrate the work of the Holy Spirit in the life of those who believe
  • Christ will return from heaven on the day of judgment: believers will rejoice in his presence, while sinners will be cast into eternal punishment
