We are guided by certain foundational truths which shape our faith, values and strategies
We believe God exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
We believe God is a God of love. He is faithful, all powerful, all knowing, ever present, never changing, holy, and completely worthy of our trust. It is in Him that we live, move, and find our existence.
We believe Jesus is the Son of God. While still being completely God, He became human in order to become God’s only plan of salvation to a lost world. In dying on the cross, he defeated death, sin, and hell, and in His resurrection, He brought us into right relationship with God and brought life to all.
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit guides us in our life in Christ and assures us of our relationship with God. He convicts us of our sin, comforts us, gives us spiritual gifts to strengthen the Church, and helps us worship, serve, and exalt Christ.
We believe the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation and life to those who place their faith and trust in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ as payment for their sin and the basis for their life.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God for all people, written by men as they were led by the Holy Spirit. It is the truth without error and has the power to transform, making it completely relevant to our daily lives
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship, relationship, and full life with Him, but we became alienated from that life and relationship through our sin and rebellion. As a result, we are unable to attain salvation and a right relationship with God through our own efforts.
We believe every man will exist eternally, either separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. Both Heaven and Hell are eternal places; to be eternally separated from God is Hell, to be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven.
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, united under Jesus as its Head. The Church works together to glorify God and make Him known to the lost world.
