We believe that men and women are created in the image of God, enjoying a unique value and dignity, to live in a special relationship with God and his creation. Together man and woman (under God) have dominion over the created order.
This means that all people should be treated with love and respect.
(Genesis 1:26-28; Psalm 145:17; John 15:12)
But, tragically, human nature is universally sinful and all are guilty before God. This places us under the wrath and condemnation of God.
This means that people are not perfect, and in sin it is evident that there are broken relationships between humanity and God, others and our natural world. God will judge all people. Apart from Christ all people are unable to turn to God, earn favour, and are without hope.
(Romans 3:9-23, Isaiah 53:6; Romans 1:18-20; Ephesians 2:1-3)
