The Members of Exwick Community Church believe:
1. In one God: the Father Almighty, Jesus Christ His Son our Saviour and Lord, and the Holy Spirit, our Guide and Helper (Matt 28:19, 1 Pet. 1:2)
2. That the Bible, the Word of God, is inspired by the Holy Spirit, tells the true story of God’s love for humanity, and is the rule and example for personal faith and lifestyle, and for church order (1 Tim. 3:16)
3. That all of humanity’s rebellion against God and failure to attain His perfect standards has resulted in a broken relationship with God (Rom. 3:23), and that separation from God, enslavement to sin and death are the primary consequences of this (Rom. 6:23)
4. That faith in Jesus Christ, who was put to death on a cross as the ultimate punishment for our wrongdoings, and came back to life again three days later (1 Cor. 3:22-24), is the only way of forgiveness and new birth (John 3:5-8; Rom. 3:22-23) and that those who are sincerely sorry for their rebellious actions, believe in Jesus as Saviour in their hearts and confess Him as Lord will be brought back into relationship with God (Acts 2:38).
5. That Jesus Christ will return to judge the world in righteousness and establish his eternal kingdom of peace and justice. (1 Thess 4:16-17. 2 Thess 1:7-9).
