What do we believe?

The Nature of God

God eternally exists as three Persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit) and is the sovereign Creator of all things (Genesis 1:1). We affirm the mystery of the Trinity and seek to do life in community as modeled by God Himself.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; 2 Corinithians 13:14)

The Bible

We believe the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testament to be the verbally inspired, perfect, trustworthy and sufficient word of God, the final authority for faith and life.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17)

The Purpose of God

Everyone and everything has been made by God and for God and therefore all glory belongs to Him.
(Colossians 1:15-20)

Human Nature

God made man – male and female – in His own image, as the crown of creation so that man might glorify Him through enjoying fellowship with Him.
(Genesis 1:27)

Sin

The world is fallen, and all humanity is separated from God because of sin.
(Genesis 3; Romans 3:23)

The Nature of Jesus

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human and absolutely sinless and perfect.
(John 1:1-2; Luke 1:35)

Jesus’ Death and Resurrection

Jesus Christ died on the cross, rose from the dead, appeared to many and ascended to heaven.
(1 Corinthians 15:1-8)

Salvation

Salvation comes through faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross plus nothing on the part of humanity.
(Ephesians 2:1-10)

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit convicts of sin, seals at conversion, gifts, guides and empowers the believer and the church.
(John 16:5-15; Ephesians 1:13; Acts 1:8)

The Church

The church is the body of Christ, with Christ as the Head, and functions to fulfill the mission of God.
(1 Corinthians 12)

Jesus’ Second Coming

Jesus will one day physically return, and there will be a final judgment.
(Matthew 24,25)

The Eternal State of Humanity

All people who have faith in Jesus Christ will spend eternity with God in His Kingdom, and all people who do not have faith in Jesus Christ will spend eternity separated from God in hell.
(Matthew 25; John 5:24; Revelation 20:11-15)
