These beliefs are central to our community, faith, worship, and ministry.

God

We believe in the one true and holy God, eternally existing in three separate persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. By his power, God created the world displaying his wisdom, goodness, and creativity. God continues to work throughout history by sustaining his creation and fulfilling his redemptive plan.

Genesis 1:26-27 And 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Corinthians 13:14

Jesus

Jesus Christ is eternally equal with, and the same as, God the Father. He became a man through a miraculous conception and a virgin birth. He lived a perfect life, committing no sin. He voluntarily died on the cross for our sins, bodily rose from the dead on the third day, and ascended into heaven. Jesus will return at God’s appointed time to judge all of mankind according to God’s plan.

John 1:1-5; Hebrews 4:14-15; Colossians 1:15-20; Matthew 16:16; Colossians 2:9

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, coexisting and coequal with God the Father and God the Son. The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and righteousness. The Holy Spirit comes to live within every Christian at the point of salvation to empower them for spiritual growth and to build up the church, the body of Christ, through the use of spiritual gifts.

1 Corinthians 12; Ephesians 2:10; John 14:12-27; John 16:4-15

The Bible

We believe the Bible to be inspired by God and written down by people of his choosing. It speaks with God’s authority through the individual styles and personalities of those who wrote it down. It teaches us how to live God-honoring lives, points out when we disobey God, shows us how to correct our ways, and how to continue on God’s path. The Bible is the trustworthy final authority on what is believed, taught, and practiced by this church. There are no other writings thus inspired by God.

2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 119:105:160; Proverbs 30:5

Salvation

Man was created in the image of God to have fellowship with, and glorify him. Man, however, sinned against God by choosing his own way. Everyone who has ever lived, except Jesus Christ, has sinned against God and is therefore separated from him. Salvation, which reconciles man to God, is available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ. Anyone can receive God’s extended offer of salvation by freely choosing to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ. This salvation is a free gift from God and is not earned in any way.

Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5, Romans 6:23

The Church

All those who experience union with Christ through salvation are united with his body, the Church. The Bible instructs believers to gather together in devotion to fellowship, worship, prayer, teaching of the Word, observance of the ordinances, service to the body, and outreach to the world. Wherever Christians meet regularly in obedience to this command, there is the local expression of the Church. Under the watch, care, and guidance of Elders and other supportive leadership, its members are to work together in love and unity to extend the Kingdom of God on the earth.

Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:1-13; 1 Corinthians 12:12-13:13
