Churches of God South Wales

About Us

Christianity

As Christians, we believe that life has always been about loving God and loving others but, to begin a relationship with God, and to receive his help to love others, we need to deal with a problem. None of us is perfect. We all commit wrongs which form a barrier between us and God. We need God’s forgiveness.

Christianity is unique in believing that God himself came to earth to provide forgiveness for us. As Jesus, He died to take the punishment for all humanity’s sin. All God asks is that we acknowledge our sin, repent of it, and put our faith in Jesus, His Son, then forgiveness will be ours for ever.

The Churches of God

Churches of God can be found on every continent, operating as an interlinked global fellowship following one doctrine. We firmly believe that God has one way of doing things, which He sets out for us in the Bible. Therefore we “guard the good deposit” (2 Tim 1:14) by maintaining first century Bible convictions while aiming to keep pace with modern society. The Churches of God in South Wales, UK, form one of 9 Districts in the UK, and many worldwide. A summary of our beliefs can be found below.
