What we Believe
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world.
(See Genesis 1:26; Matthew 28:19; and 1 Corinthians 8:6)
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with Him but because of sin that relationship has been broken. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
(See Genesis Chapters 2 and 3)
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. God freely offers salvation to all, nothing that we can do, contributes to our salvation, it is a free gift from God.
(See Ephesians 2: 8-9; Romans 3: 23-24, 5: 8-9, and 10:9;1 Peter 1:3-5; Acts 4:12; John 3:16; and 1 John 3:8)
About the Christian Life
We believe all Christian should live for Christ and not for themselves. We believe in spending time in the Word of God, and letting the Holy Spirit guide and nurture our relationship, as we strive to reach beyond ourselves and into our community.
(See John 20:31; 2 Timothy 3:16; 1 Peter 2:9 and 3:15; 2 Peter 1:21; and Ephesians 2:19-21)
About the Church
We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who the Holy Spirit has given the gift of faith, who cling to the work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving him and by making him known to the lost world.
(See 1 Corinthians 12:12-13; and Ephesians 2:19-22, 4:4-6, and 5:25-27)
