what we believe


Perhaps you are wondering what Christianity is all about.

Well here’s a brief summary: God is the loving ruler of the world and he made usto live in a special relationship with him. Everyone has rebelled against God our creator and has tried, and failed, to run their lives, and our world, by themselves. If we continue in our rebellion against God, he will exclude us from relationship with him now and forever.

Because of his love for us, God the Father sent Jesus, God the Son into the world so that we do not have to suffer the consequences of our rebellion. Jesus, God the Son, died on the cross and was cut off from God the Father in our place.

He rose from the dead to show that he had paid the full penalty for our rebellion. As a result of Jesus’ death, God offers us a new start in our relationship with him.

We can continue to reject him, OR, we can let God into our lives by receiving his Holy Spirit. This leads to forgiveness of all our sins and a new start in our relationship with God as our Father.

All Saints’ is committed to the truths of Christianity as contained in the CPAS Statement of Faith

Core convictions

In Autumn 2019 we had a short sermon series thinking about some of our core convictions in the context of growing a disciple making culture at All Saints. As a church we are not able to meet together in one place but are still very much the church and our calling is unchanged.

These underlying convictions continue to provide a foundation for informing what we do as a church even during lockdown and we are therefore making them available again online as we prayerfully determine what God is calling and using each of us as disciples during this period.  

If you want to explore some of these ideas further you might want to read either ‘The Trellis and the Vine’ by Colin Marshall and Tony Payne or one of LICC’s excellent resources.
