What We Believe

About the Bible

The Bible is the infallible Word of God and the authority for salvation and Christian living (II Timothy 3:15-17).

About God

There is one God, who has revealed Himself as our Father, in His Son Jesus Christ, and as the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is God manifested in flesh. He is both God and man (Deuteronomy 6:4; Ephesians 4:4-6; Colossians 2:9; I Timothy 3:16).

About Sin and Salvation

Everyone needs salvation. Salvation comes by grace through faith, based on the sacrifice of Jesus Christ (Romans 3:23-25; 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-9). The Lord Jesus came “… to seek and to save that which was lost.” (Luke 19:10).

About the Gospel

The good news is that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and rose again. We obey the gospel by repentance (death to sin), water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ (burial), and receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit (resurrection), (I Corinthians 15:1-4; Acts 2:4, 37-39; Romans 6:3-4).

About Christian Living

As Christians we love God and others. We live a holy life inwardly and outwardly, and worship God joyfully. The supernatural gifts of the Spirit, including healing, are for the church today (Mark 12:28-31; II Corinthians 7:1; Hebrews 12:14; I Corinthians 12:8-10).

Rev. Cameron Butcher has been pastor at UPC Ballarat since January 2012, and leads an incredible ministry team, who are committed to serving God and others.
