We believe God exists and that He can be known. This isn't accomplished through our own efforts to find God, but because God Himself has taken remarkable steps to reveal Himself and lead us to a relationship with Him. We learn about who He is and all that He has done through His Word to us, the Bible, and we enter into a relationship with Him through His Son, Jesus.
We believe God is real and personal.
We believe Jesus is our only Savior and the only hope for the world. We believe the Bible is true and relevant for life today. That’s the message we share.
We want people to know and love Jesus, and then to live out their faith by loving and serving their community. That’s what we try to do each and everyday.
We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible authoritative Word of God.
He inspired its writers as to what to record and as such it has supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit. These three are one in eternity, deity and purpose; everlasting, of infinite power, wisdom and goodness.
GOD, THE FATHER
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of people, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
JESUS, THE SON
God was himself in Jesus Christ to reconcile people to God.
Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, He joined together the deity of God and the humanity of humankind. Jesus of Nazareth was God in flesh, truly God and truly human. He came to save us. For us the Son of God suffered, was crucified, dead and buried. He poured out His life as a blameless sacrifice for our sin and transgressions. We gratefully acknowledge that He is our Savior, the one perfect mediator between God and us.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe the Holy Spirit is a divine Person, the third Person of the Trinity.
In the present age He convicts people of sin, of judgment, and of righteousness. He bears witness to the truth of the Gospel in preaching and testimony. He is the agent in the new birth, indwells all believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, baptizes them into the body of Christ, seals them unto the day of redemption, and every believer is commanded by God to be filled with the Holy Spirit, and He bestows gifts as He wills.
Christ offered once and for all the one perfect sacrifice for the sins of the whole world. No other satisfaction for sin is necessary; none other can atone. A new life and a right relationship with God are made possible through the redemptive acts of God in Jesus Christ. God, by His Spirit, acts to impart new life and put people into a relationship with Himself as they repent and their faith responds to His grace.
