"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer
What we believe
The following are the core beliefs of Life Chapel based on the foundational truths taught in the Bible.
The one true God has revealed Himself as the eternally self-existent "I AM," the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of mankind. He has further revealed Himself as embodying the principles of relationship and association as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus, God's son, was both divine and human. He, perfect and sinless, came to save an imperfect, sinful world. He is hope to the hopeless and strength to the weak. He is God, He is our Redeemer and He is coming again for His church.
We believe the workings of the Holy Spirit, the third person in the trinity, is for today. His workings are evident as he convicts the world of sin, as he transforms and empowers the believer and His gifts, given to encourage the church, are at work.
The Inspired Scriptures
2 Timothy 3:15-17
The Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments, are verbally inspired by God and are the revelation of God to man, the infallible, authoritative rule of faith and conduct.
The Fall of Man
Man was created good and upright; for God said, "Let us make man in our own image, after our likeness." However, man by voluntary transgression fell and thereby incurred not only physical death but also spiritual death, which is separation from God.
The Salvation of Man
Man's only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ the Son of God.
Baptism in Water
Baptism by immersion is commanded by the Scriptures. All who repent and believe in Christ as Saviour and Lord are to be baptized. In doing so, they declare to the world that they have died with Christ and that they also have been raised with Him to walk in newness of life.
1 Corinthians 11.23-26
The Lord's Supper, bread and the fruit of the vine, is the symbol we use to express our sharing the divine nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, a memorial of his suffering and death, and a prophecy of His second coming.
Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
