We believe one God, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit. .
God the Father
We believe God the Father is full of love and rich in mercy. He is the eternal Father having authority over the Son and the Holy Spirit.
All glory and power and dominion are ultimately to the Father.
We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal Son, sent by the Father. The eternal Son became man and lived among mankind.
Through human sin and rebellion, Jesus was crucified as a voluntary sacrifice for the sins of the world.
Three days later, Jesus rose from the dead, showed Himself alive, then ascended to the Father in glory, and is now seated at His right hand.
The Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is personal and relational. The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus Christ and grants the faith to believe and also to live for Jesus. He makes God's presence personal in each believer and He empowers the church to share the good news and to be witnesses to the love of God in Christ.
We believe that eternal life, the forgiveness of sins, a righteous standing with God, and a secure relationship forefcer is freely given by God to whosoever trusts Jesus.
We commonly say, "Eternal salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone."
The believer is eternally secure in one's relationship with Jesus and guaranteed the free gift of everlasting life.
The Christian Life
God's first concern is for our trust in His Son, rather than good behavior. We believe the Christian life is a life of faith and love, and then obedience.
So it is important to learn to know and trust God and to experience His love that we may love Him and extend His love to others.
The Christian life is a marathon of trials and growth, hurts and healing, grief and celebration.
Mature Christian character is not automatic or linear; it is nurtured over time in community and it is best expressed in love.
We believe the Bible is God's Word, and the very words of life; it was written by men who were moved by the Holy Spirit.
The Bible is faithful and true in all it declares and it is the highest source of wisdom and authority for our church.
We believe the church is the body of Christ and the family of God comprised of born again believers who trust Jesus Christ for everlasting life.
The church exists to worship the Lord, to share the good news with those who are far from God, and to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
We believe Jesus is coming again to set up His kingdom of righteousness and peace over the whole world.
He will judge His enemies, reward His saints, and establish the New Jerusalem, New Heaven, and the New Earth forevermore. Amen.
