What we believe


Our statement of faith is based on the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith.

We believe in…

  1. The one true God who lives eternally in three persons—the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  2. The love, grace and sovereignty of God in creating, sustaining, ruling, redeeming and judging the world.
  3. The divine inspiration and supreme authority of the Old and New Testament Scriptures, which are the written Word of God—fully trustworthy for faith and conduct.
  4. The dignity of all people, made male and female in God’s image to love, be holy and care for creation, yet corrupted by sin, which incurs divine wrath and judgement.
  5. The incarnation of God’s eternal Son, the Lord Jesus Christ—born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.
  6. The atoning sacrifice of Christ on the cross: dying in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.
  7. The bodily resurrection of Christ, the first fruits of our resurrection; his ascension to the Father, and his reign and mediation as the only Saviour of the world.
  8. The justification of sinners solely by the grace of God through faith in Christ.
  9. The ministry of God the Holy Spirit, who leads us through faith to repentance, unites us with Christ through new birth, indwells us to empower our discipleship and makes us fruitful in service and holiness.
  10. The Church, the body of Christ both local and universal, the priesthood of all believers—given life by the Spirit and endowed with the Spirit’s gifts to worship God and proclaim the gospel, promoting justice and love.
  11. The personal and visible return of Jesus Christ to fulfil the purposes of God, who will raise all people to judgement, bring eternal life to the redeemed and eternal condemnation to the lost, and establish a new heaven and new earth.
  12. The practice of the baptism of believers by immersion upon request, but not essential to either salvation or communion.
  13. The practice of sharing communion among professing believers.

We at Queen Edith Chapel see no need to insist on more than this, although our flavour of worship is influenced particularly by the priesthood of all believers (point 10): Jesus’ spirit lives in us so we can all approach God. All can contribute to our worship on Sundays and in smaller groups, and we have no priest; communion may be led by any who love Jesus as their Lord.
