We are a vibrant Christian church based in Hertfordshire UK.
Our passion is to help people find Jesus – He is the answer to our “Why?” We want to encourage and inspire all to apply the foundational words of Jesus to our everyday lives, building strong and healthy relationships, communities and families and withstanding the inevitable storms of life.

“These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock.”
Matthew 7:24-25 MSG
“And now I’m going to tell you who you are, really are. You are Peter, a rock. This is the rock on which I will put together my church, a church so expansive with energy that not even the gates of hell will be able to keep it out.”
Matthew 16:17-18 MSG
WHAT WE BELIEVE
God is creator and ruler of the universe
He has eternally existed as the father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one God.
Genesis 1:1,26,27,3.22 / Psalm 90:2 / Matthew 28:19 / Peter 1:2 / 2 Corinthians 13:14
Jesus is the son of God
He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
Matthew 1:22, 23 / Isaiah 9:6 / John 1:1-5, 14:10-30 / Hebrews 4:14-15 / 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 / Romans 1:3-4 / Acts 1:9-11 / 1 Timothy 6:14-15 / Colossians 1:15 / Titus 2:13
