Joining together with ordinary men and women to express and witness to the power of the Kingdom of God, we are local Christians from different churches who have come together to do the will and work of our Lord Jesus Christ in reaching out into our community with the Gospel of reconciliation to God through forgiveness and redemption. Recognising that we are only one small part of a wonderful expression of God’s people here in Holt and District, we work to empower Christians in the local area to be exploring and expressing  different ways of being church.   This often means thinking outside of the box and joining together with other Christians and non-Christians (well, not yet!) in new initiatives to restore relationships and to unify our local community in the love of God.  Often taking risks, we seek to bring  the full Gospel of Christ into places that have lost sight of the wonders of God's love, His creation and workings of the Holy Spirit.  Whilst there will always be healthy differences in belief and practices amongst our brother and sister Christians, we uphold the one church as a missional community and we seek to work with each expression of His church to fulfill the great commission of Jesus.

We are Disciples of our Lord Jesus Christ.
.............that's it folks!

What we believe
We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God. It was delivered by God through men, but breathed by His Spirit into their hearts and minds, it was delivered to the original human authors, without error, in all it declares.
We believe that God is One. There is only one God. As the New Testament of the Bible has fully revealed - He is Spirit (John 4:24), and has eternally existed in God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah of God, Saviour of the world. Jesus is the one and only unique Son of the Father. Through God, He became flesh and lived among men to save us from our sins. He was fully God, and fully man.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is more than a force or field coming from God. He is God, the third person of the Trinity or Godhead. The Comforter that Jesus Himself promised. The Spirit has a unique role in this Christian age in that He inhabits believers (1 Corinthians 6:19) and washes them in the water of regeneration and renewal (Titus 3:5). At the time of water baptism (Acts 2:38, Colossians 2:11). Christians have supernatural power to return love to God, and live a life of righteousness (though not yet perfect).
We believe that Jesus died for the sins of all humankind. As He died on the cross, He took the place of each and every one of us (1 Timothy 2:4-6; 1 John 2:2), that we might have life in Him by faith (1 Peter 1:18 & 19; 2:24; and 3:18).
We believe that Jesus died and on the third day He rose again to the glory of God. We believe in the soon and sure coming of Jesus from heaven where even now he reigns with the Father (Revelation 5). The second coming of Jesus will be literal, visible, and historic (in time). A wide diversity of positions about the millennium and the end times are held by different members of the homegroups. No millennial position is considered binding to belong to a group.
We believe that all people are lost in their sin (Romans 3:23) and lost people may be saved by the grace of God ( it is a free gift, John 3:16; Romans 6:23), through faith in Jesus and His death in our place(Ephesians 2:8 & 9; 2 Corinthians 5:21), in the waters of baptism (Acts 2:38; 22:16; Galatians 3:26 & 27), for the purpose of good works (Ephesians 2:10). All people will be judged in the end. The unrighteous will be condemned for their lack of faith. The redeemed, who have professed and lived a life of faith, will be further judged according to their works to receive a crown of righteousness (2 Timothy 4:8); great treasure stored up in heaven (Matthew 6:19-21; Philippians 3:12-14).
We believe that fellowship and service to one another and the community in general are essential to Christian growth (Acts 2:42; 5:13).
We believe that it is our opportunity and responsibility to share the good news that God has loved us so much he gave the gift of Jesus to the entire world, so that all people have the opportunity to repent and be reconciled back to God (Matthew 28:18-20).
We believe that the earliest church existed in local groups, first meeting from house to house. We endorse maintaining this.  (Acts 2:46; 5:42).

Although not wishing to be labelled as a Pentecostal or a Charismatic Fellowship or anything else, but just as Christians; we believe that the Holy Spirit inhabits believers (1 Corinthians 6:19), and gives them real power for righteous living; spirit filled praise and freedom of worship. We accept that all have a different way of worshipping our God in spirit and in truth and we encourage all to worship God in the freedom of the Spirit and in a manner which they are comfortable with and without judgement from others.
Our homegroups follow an Independent Congregational pattern with the emphasis on the five fold ministry as specified in Ephesians Ch 4. Whilst we accept that the early church had it's problems (read Paul's letters!) we do believe that the only way forward for the 21st Century is for the church to go back to it's roots and start behaving and operating as the early Christians did, in unity together.  Praising and worshipping God in spirit and in truth.  Reaching out into the community and exercising the command to preach the Gospel through love, peace and reconciliation.
We acknowledge that the earliest church existed in local groups, first meeting from house to house (Acts 2:46; 5:42). These individual churches shared much rich fellowship and maintained themselves in the power of God.  We further believe that the church leadership is  also a shared leadership of the five fold ministry of pastors, apostles, prophets, teachers, evangelists as described in the New Testament and active within our homegroups. 
One Church, One Lord, One Baptism, One Faith.
