Our Statement of Faith (What We Believe)

Bible

The sole basis of our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, without error, and is the final authority on all matters of faith and practice. The criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ. As the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God 

God the Father created us to have fellowship with Him, but we defied Him by sinfully going our own way. As a result, we need God's saving grace to end our alienation from Him. Salvation comes only through God's saving grace - not human effort or achievement - and must be received personally by repentance and faith.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute. Salvation is for all who receive His gift by trusting in Him alone as Lord and Savior. He rose from the dead and is the only mediator between us and God. He will return to earth to fulfill His mission. When He comes again, He will judge everyone. Those forgiven through Christ will enjoy eternal fellowship with God. Those who have refused Christ will forever be separated from God.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service in the church. The church's purpose is to glorify God in all things.
