Church beliefs

Summer Hill Church is an Evangelical Anglican Church, which means that our Christian beliefs are strongly based on what God has told us from the Bibile. Here is a brief list of some of the things we believe:
 

What we believe about Jesus:

We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son our Lord (who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate) was crucified, died, and was buried.

He descended to the dead. On the third day he rose from the dead and he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. From there he will come to judge the living and the dead.

 

What we believe about the Bible:

The Bible is how God speaks to us today. By reading it, and through God's spirit- we can understand God and his plan for the world. We have the bible read and explained each Sunday at Church, and many of us also read the Bible personally at home.

 

What we believe about people:

God tells us in the Bible that we don't live up to his expectations, which is called Sin. Because of our sin we can't be in a relationship with God and we deserve punishment. However, Jesus took this punishment when he died on a cross, and so through trusting in him we can be freed of our Sin and be reunited with God.
