We are a church community based

in the City of Sunderland

 

Our values below are what we believe and we are passionate that everyone we come into contact with has the opportunity to know who Jesus is

  • Our universe was created by an amazing God who loves us.

  • Human beings have rejected this God and messed up his creation and their own lives

  • God came to live on earth in the person of Jesus.Jesus lived a perfect life, but he told us that following him is not 'just for good people'

  • Jesus died on a cross so that our sins can be forgiven and he came back to life again to show that he has conquered death

  • Everyone who believes in Jesus receives forgiveness and new life. The Holy Spirit comes to live within us enabling us to become more like Jesus

  • We believe that the Bible is God’s word and that when we listen to what it says God speaks to us

  • Being a Christian is about living in friendship with God and modelling our lives on Jesus.This is how we find fulfilment and peace of mind in this life, and peace with God for ever when our life on earth has finished.

We are part of the Evangelical Alliance which connects 3500 churches nationally, informs and inspires Christians and represents the evangelical faith to the media.
