What We Believe
There is one God in three persons, eternally existent: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The 66 books of the Bible are divinely inspired and contain no errors. The Bible is the ultimate authority on everything it teaches. The final guide to the interpretation of Scripture is Scripture itself.
All people are sinners, inherently from Adam, and stand guilty before God who is perfect, holy, and just. Our sin separates us from God.
God, in his unfathomable love, sent His only Son, Jesus, to live the perfect life we cannot live, and to suffer and die for all our sins. Jesus rose bodily from the dead, ascended to heaven, and is currently seated at the right hand of God the Father.
Salvation is a gift received by faith alone in Jesus alone. No amount of good works can earn our salvation. The Bible says repent and believe in Jesus and our sins will be forgiven. Faith in Jesus as our Savior removes our separation from God, which sin brought, and grants us eternal life with Him in heaven.
It is only through the Holy Spirit that anyone can come to know Christ and understand God’s Word.
Believers have been commanded by Jesus to preach the good news of salvation to all the earth and make disciples of every nation.
The Holy Spirit lives and works in each believer, transforming and equipping them to produce fruits of faith. Together all believers are members of His body, the Church, where Jesus is the head.
On Judgment Day, Jesus will return in person to this earth as judge of the living and the dead.
the message of the Bible
God, who is just, could not leave our sin unpunished. Yet, God, who is also love, could not abandon his creation. This is where Jesus and the cross collide in his amazing plan of salvation.
Our salvation through faith in Jesus is just the beginning! The Holy Spirit transforms and equips us as we read the Bible and place its truths as the foundation of every area of our lives.
LIFE ON MISSION
Our salvation in Jesus and the Holy Spirit working through the Bible propels us into lives on mission. This is where our faith is more than head knowledge, but impacts how we live our lives.
