Our Beliefs

About God:
We believe in one God who exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God is all powerful, all knowing, ever present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and above all, Holy. God is good and unconditionally loving, and His heart is to heal all that is broken in this world He has created.

About Jesus:
God expressed himself fully in Jesus, who is fully God and fully human. He was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life, embodying God’s love for all people and his power to heal. He gave his life for us on the cross, freeing us to experience new life in Him. Now, He reigns at the right hand of the Father and intercedes for us.

About the Holy Spirit:
The Holy Spirit is given to every follower of Jesus to fill us and assures us of our relationship with Christ.  The Holy Spirit empowers us to be like Jesus. He transforms us in character by producing the fruit of the Spirit in us, and He gives us spiritual gifts to enable us to meet the needs of a hurting world.

About the Bible:
Comprised of 66 books, authored over thousands of years by dozens of authors, the Bible tells one seamless story: a passionate God on a relentless pursuit to redeem His creation. The Bible is the authoritative and inspired Word of God and is trustworthy and reliable for telling us who we are and how to live.

About Salvation:
We were created in the image of God to have community with Him and represent Him on earth. However, through a willful act of disobedience, we and the world were broken by sin. Jesus, as the full expression of God, came to bring us life in God through his death and resurrection. Jesus’ sacrifice is the only means of our rescue and new life with God is freely available for all who trust in Him.  Salvation is a gift from God, and it cannot be earned through our own efforts.

About The Church:
The Church is the community who has put their trust in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God, make disciples, make Jesus known to a lost world, and meet the needs of those near and far. We believe that Christians are to act in unity and love. We celebrate baptism as a public declaration of new life in Jesus, and communion as an ongoing remembrance of the sacrifice Jesus made for us on the cross.
