What we believe

Simply put, we are followers of Jesus. We have no longer live to please ourselves, but we live to love and obey Him.

Through the Holy Spirit we live in the love of our heavenly Father because we believe and trust in Jesus Christ, who died for our sins.

We are Christians from across the full range of denominations.

We are united in our desire to spend time with God and to pray for Southampton and beyond.

We believe certain things about God, as revealed in His book, the bible. We believe and trust in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. This is summarised in what is called the Nicene Creed. Here it is:

We believe in one God,
      the Father almighty,
      maker of heaven and earth,
      of all things visible and invisible.
And in one Lord Jesus Christ,
      the only Son of God,
      begotten from the Father before all ages,
           God from God,
           Light from Light,
           true God from true God,
      begotten, not made;
      of the same essence as the Father.
      Through him all things were made.
      For us and for our salvation
           he came down from heaven;
           he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit
           and the virgin Mary,
           and was made human.
           He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
           he suffered and was buried.
           The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
           He ascended to heaven
           and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
           He will come again with glory
           to judge the living and the dead.
           His kingdom will never end.
And we believe in the Holy Spirit,
      the Lord, the giver of life.
      He proceeds from the Father and the Son,
      and with the Father and the Son is worshiped and glorified.
      He spoke through the prophets.
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic church.
We affirm one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
We look forward to the resurrection of the dead,
      and to life in the world to come.
