What we Believe

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God as originally given. We believe it is the complete revelation of His will for salvation and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.

The Trinity

We believe in the unity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit in the Godhead. We believe there is only one God, who is sovereign in creation, revelation, redemption and final judgment.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ; His virgin birth; His sinless life; His substitutionary death on a cross; His bodily resurrection; His ascension to the right hand of the Father; and His personal return.

Grace by Faith

We believe the Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins and that all who believe in Him are declared righteous because of His sacrificial death and are, therefore, in right relationship with God. We believe the justification of the sinner is by the grace of God through faith alone.

The Holy Spirit

We believe in the personal presence and power of the Holy Spirit in the work of regeneration. We believe the indwelling, work and gifts of the Holy Spirit in all believers and in the church.

Universal Sin

We believe that man was created by and for God; that the universal sinfulness and guilt of all people since the fall, has rendered them subject to God’s wrath and condemnation.

Core Values

Bible-saturated

We are a contemporary Reformed Charismatic church with a passion for God’s Word. We believe that the Bible is the divinely inspired Word of God and our supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct. The proclaimed Word of God is central to everything we are and do at Sonlife Church.

Gospel-centred

We believe the Gospel of Jesus is the centrepiece of God’s redemptive plan for his beloved humanity. We preach the Gospel uncompromisingly to everyone for it leads to transformed, Christ-like lives. Our church will be culturally relevant so that our gospel-ministry engages and connects with our context and setting.

Spirit-led

We want the Holy Spirit to lead us in all aspects of life. This means waiting upon the Spirit for guidance and depending on him live a life that glorifies Jesus. We seek to use the gifts of the Holy Spirit for the benefit of others in our community.

Passionate in Worship

We worship Jesus with our all – our time, abilities, thought-life, actions and resources. We seek to worship and pray to Jesus with the passion he deserves, while remaining true to our God-given personalities. Our goal is to see Jesus glorified and exalted through joyful praises and intimate personal worship.

Authentic in our Relationships

We are a Church that enjoys doing life together in authentic relationships. We aim to love each other in ways that are genuine and practical, knowing it is more blessed to give than to receive. We want to be far more than a friendly church; we want be people that are warm, kind friends.

Intentional in Discipleship

We want to make and mature Christ-followers. Jesus called us to know him, to love him and follow him – and he then commissioned us to tell the world about him. We will challenge all to actively pursuing a deep and intimate relationship with Jesus, where we mature in many areas of our lives. We will all be discipled and then in turn pour out our lives into other believers in the Lord.
