What we believe

The Basis of Faith of St Luke’s Church shall be the fundamental truths of Christianity as revealed in The Bible including:

  1. The unity of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit
  2. The sovereignty of God
  3. The divine inspiration and infallibility of The Bible and its supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct
  4. The universal guilt of human nature since Adam and Eve first sinned
  5. Jesus Christ is God made man.  Fully human and fully God. The virgin birth; his death on the cross, his bodily resurrection and his present reign in heaven and earth
  6. Redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of our representative and substitute Jesus Christ, the only mediator between God and man
  7. Justification as God’s act of undeserved mercy in which the sinner is pardoned all his sins  this is received by faith alone
  8. The need for the Holy Spirit to make the work of Christ effective to the individual Christian
  9. The indwelling of the Holy Spirit in all those who accept Jesus as their Lord, producing in them an increasing likeness to Christ in character and behaviour, and empowering them for their witness in the world
  10. The only holy universal Church which is the Body of Christ to which all true believers belong
  11. The personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ who will judge all men and women
