What We Believe
Consistent with our Uniting Church identity, Lifeworks holds to a reformed, evangelical and historically orthodox view of the Christian faith. We believe that:
God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit one God, known in three persons, and is defined by the dynamic and loving interaction between those three persons. God is Love. (1 John 4:8)
The Bible, including both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God.
On the Cross Jesus made an all-sufficient sacrifice for the sins of the world, and that when we confess him as Lord and believe God raised him from the dead, we are saved from eternal judgement and receive the promise of eternal life (new life) in him. (Romans 10:9)
The church is the Priesthood of all believers, where every member of the church has gifts given by the Holy Spirit and for which there is a corresponding service.
