At the Fig Tree we believe that God is sovereign in creation, revelation,
redemption and in final judgement. We believe in the trinity of God, that
God the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are united in the Godhead
and that the complete, unaltered Holy Bible is divine revelation and is
supreme in authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We also believe that mankind is fundamentally sinful and
therefore out of relationship with a holy God, in the full deity of Jesus
Christ, His virgin birth, His real sinless humanity whilst on earth, His death
on a cross, His bodily resurrection and His present reign in heaven. We believe
that redemption from the guilt, penalty and power of sin is only possible
through the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ and that through acceptance by
faith of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ we are accepted as righteous in
Godís sight and we receive eternal life as a gift of Godís grace.
We believe that as the Holy Spirit is allowed to work in our
lives so that we grow in Christís likeness, in character and behaviour. We
are part of one worldwide, universal church acknowledging Jesus Christ as Lord.
We believe in the future personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will
judge all people and receive those redeemed in Jesus Christ to eternal glory.
