Our Beliefs

At Petra Christian Centre, our beliefs are deeply rooted in the Bible and the teachings of Christ. They shape our worship, guide our relationships, and inform our service to others. We invite you to explore these foundational truths with us, and we welcome your insights as we collectively grow in our understanding of God.
