What we believe

We believe in...

We believe that everything revolves around Jesus Christ – who he is and what he’s done. We believe that the whole of history hangs on his claims about himself, his actions, his death and his resurrection. We’d love to chat with you about why we believe this and what that looks like in action in the lives of real people – so please get in touch if you want to question, explore or even disagree!

 

More specifically, we here at Tile Kiln Church believe:

In the one true Creator God who lives eternally in three persons — the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

That this God has given us the Bible, which is entirely trustworthy and which constitutes our supreme authority in matters of belief and conduct.

In 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 separates us from God and brings his judgement.

That the eternal Son came into the world in the person of Jesus Christ, born of the virgin Mary; truly divine and truly human, yet without sin.

That Jesus died on the cross in our place, paying the price of sin and defeating evil, so reconciling us with God.

That Jesus physically rose from the dead, giving us new life and ensuring our future resurrection, that he returned to the Father, and reigns as the only Saviour of the world.

That sinful people are put right with God by the grace of God through faith in Jesus Christ.

That God the Holy Spirit brings us to the point of faith, unites us to Christ, and enables us to live as God requires.

That when we put our trust in Jesus we are united to him and become part of his Church, both local and universal and are given gifts by the Holy Spirit enabling us to worship God, share the good news of Jesus, and promote justice and love.

That Jesus Christ will return to fulfil the purposes of God establishing a new heaven and new earth, bringing all people to judgement, giving eternal life to those in Christ.
