Sundays, 10.30am, 5th October - 7th December 


What are the non negotiables of our faith?  How do they impact what we think, say and do?  How do they impact how we relate to each other?  How do they impact our life priorities?

This 10 week series unpacks FBC's Statement of Faith and looks at the key beliefs of the Christian faith.
Week 1
Date: 5th October 2014
Theme: Three and One
Speaker: Chris Simpkins

We believe that God is one and exists in 3 distinct persons at the same time.

God is three and one, not three in one: Jesus, Holy Spirit and Father make up the one true God.  God is beyond our understanding and comprehension and, although we'll never fully grasp the fullness of who God is, we can still give him our worship and adoration.
Week 2
Date: 12th October 2014
Theme: The Word
Speaker: Neil Bidston

We believe that the Bible is the inspired word of God.  It's a relevant resource to help draw us closer to God and know how to live.
Week 3
Date: 19th October 2014
Theme: Faulty Goods?
Speaker: Paul Valler

We believe that God created us in his image.  This gives us an inherent value that impacts how we see ourselves and those around us.  
Week 4
Date: 26th October 2014
Theme: Moving into the Neighbourhood
Speaker: Chris Simpkins

We believe that Jesus, God’s son, came to live among us.  God isn’t distant but fully involved in our lives.

Week 5
Date: 9th November 2014
Theme: The Price of Freedom
Speaker: Chris Simpkins

We believe that Jesus made it possible for us to be made right with God.  Only through him is it possible for us to be reconciled with God.
 
Week 6
Date: 16th November 2014
Theme: Back to the Future
Speaker: Chris Simpkins

We believe that Jesus died, came back to life and is alive today.  Jesus is still at work, not twiddling his thumbs!  He is building his church and mediating on our behalf.
Week 7
Date: 23rd November 2014
Theme: It's Not Fair!
Speaker: Nick Cuthbert 

We believe that we can be forgiven only because Jesus was punished in our place.  That's amazing grace! 
 
Week 8
Date: 30th November 2014
Theme: The Power Inside
Speaker:  Chris Simpkins

We believe that God’s Spirit lives within those who follow him.   God’s Spirit gives us power and encouragement.
 
Week 9
Date: 7th December 2014
Theme: We are Family
Speaker: Chris Simpkins

We believe that the Church acts as the body of Jesus on earth, carrying on what he started.   We are only family because God is our father.
 
Week 10
Date: 14th December 2014
Theme: I'll be back!
Speaker: Paul Valler

We believe that Jesus is coming back to bring everything to completion.  There is hope for everyone if they choose to believe in him!
