What We Believe
The Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
There is one living, sovereign God, who eternally exists in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each having different functions in creation, providence, and redemption.
God the Father is perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. He hears and answers prayer, and saves those who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
Jesus was sent by the Father to live on earth and demonstrate the kind of life He intended for humanity to live. He was fully God and fully human, yet had no sin. Jesus willingly laid down his life and, after three days, rose from the grave. In doing this, Jesus fulfilled the payment for the world’s debt of sin.
Luke 1:31, 35, 1 Corinthians 15:3, 1 John 1:14, Hebrews 1:2-3
The Holy Spirit was sent by the Father and Son to convict the world of sin and to empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. He lives in every believer and is a constant helper, teacher, and guide.
John 14:16-17, 26, John 16:7-15, Romans 8:14-17, Ephesians 1:13-14
All people are sinners and need God’s forgiveness. Those who confess and turn from their sin, trusting in Jesus Christ, will be saved by grace and become children of God, with the promise of eternal life.
John 3:16-18, Galatians 3:26, Titus 3:5
Jesus Christ is the head of the church and all believing people are members of His body. Our primary task is reaching out to the world with the message of God’s love and redemption.
Ephesians 2:19-22, 4:15-16
Believers should strive to live and love like Jesus by spending time with God, connecting in community, serving others, living generously and reaching the lost.
Colossians 3:17-23; 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Baptism is the immersion of the believer in water as a symbol of their commitment to new life.
The Lord’s Supper (Communion) was given to the church by Christ as a way to remember his sacrificial death for us.
Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 2:41-42, 1 Corinthians 11:23-32
Jesus Christ will return to earth one day and establish His kingdom.
