What We Believe

  1. There is one God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
  2. God is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgement.
  3. The Bible, as originally given, is the inspired and infallible Word of God. It is the supreme authority in all matters of belief and behaviour.
  4. Since the fall, the whole of humankind is sinful and guilty, so that everyone is subject to God's wrath and condemnation.
  5. The Lord Jesus Christ, God's incarnate Son, is fully God; he was born of a virgin; his humanity is real and sinless; he died on the cross, was raised bodily from death and is now reigning over heaven and earth.
  6. Sinful human beings are redeemed from the guilt, penalty and power of sin only through the sacrificial death once and for all time of their representative and substitute, Jesus Christ, the only mediator between them and God.
  7. Those who believe in Christ are pardoned all their sins and accepted in God's sight only because of the righteousness of Christ credited to them; this justification is God's act of undeserved mercy, received solely by trust in him and not by their own efforts.
  8. The Holy Spirit alone makes the work of Christ effective to individual sinners, enabling them to turn to God from their sin and to trust in Jesus Christ.
  9. The Holy Spirit lives in all those he has regenerated.  He makes them increasingly Christlike in character and behaviour and gives them power for their witness in the world.
  10. The one holy universal church is the Body of Christ, to which all true believers belong.
  11. The Lord Jesus Christ will return in person, to judge everyone, to execute God's just condemnation on those who have not repented and to receive the redeemed to eternal glory.

The ethos of Waleswide emerges from its Statement of Faith and the following beliefs:

Waleswide believes that the Lord Jesus would see healthy, gospel focussed churches established in the areas of Wales where currently there are only scattered Christians or churches in serious decline.  We sense urgency from the Holy Spirit for this being felt across the various evangelical networks.

Waleswide believes that New Testament churches were started by missional leaders and teams moving to an area, or by believers in an area gathering together, to form a church.  In both cases the wider church actively supported the developing churches.

In response to this, Waleswide will prayerfully seek to identify the neediest areas (geographical, sociological and distinct languages), inform the churches across Wales of the challenges and seek to gather prayer, support, people and resources for these situations in order to plant new churches or strengthen existing ones, as appropriate.

Waleswide will always seek to respect and support evangelicals already living and working in an area, and to identify what God is already doing.
