What we believe

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word for today, to be proclaimed to all people everywhere. In the Bible is revealed God’s salvation plan: all who trust in the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ will enjoy life both now and in the new creation. For a summary of the gospel click here.

We are fully committed to the classic Christian creeds and confessions concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ and the Trinity: one God in three persons, Father, Son and Spirit. We stand in line with historic Biblical Christianity, and we delight in the Reformation declarations that salvation is by Scripture alone, by faith alone, by grace alone, through Christ alone, and glory be to God alone.

We believe that our statement of beliefs are an essential summary of biblical Christianity. Those who have committed themselves to membership of Church by the Bay joyfully affirm their commitment to these beliefs.
