What we believe

Christ Church has been part of the Crouch End community for over 150 years and seen many changes but the God we believe in has stayed the same forever.

We are loved by God

We believe in one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe God wants to have a relationship with the people that He created. However, after creation, people turned against God by taking charge of their own lives and resisting His authority, which had terrible consequences. But in God’s mercy and grace he sent his Son Jesus to earth on a rescue mission.

We believe that Jesus died to take the punishment for the rebellion of all humankind so that those who trust in Jesus are free to enjoy a relationship with God forever.

We believe that Jesus overcame death by rising again and is now in heaven with God and He will one day return to judge the earth.

We listen to God through the Bible

We believe in the authority of the Bible as God’s word and seek to know God better through it. We believe the Holy Spirit helps us to do this by applying God's word into our lives and helping us to live for Jesus day by day.  

We believe that when God's word is taught, people can come to life by trusting in Jesus and be equipped for living in His world, His way.

We live to glorify God as His church

We believe that God’s church is His family of believers worldwide with Jesus as King. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by building each other up in unity in the faith, loving and serving each other and sharing the good news of Jesus with those who don’t yet know him.

We believe that God welcomes everyone who trusts Jesus as their Lord and Saviour into His church.

We believe the good news of the Gospel is just as relevant, necessary and true today as it has always been.

If you’re not sure you’d go that far, why not come along, ask questions and consider for yourself whether the claims of Jesus are true?

We believe it’s the single most important thing you’ll ever do.
