  • We believe in the Trinity, as the Bible teaches, there is one God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.   Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 12:4-6, 2 Corinthians 13:14, Genesis 1:1-2, 1 Peter 1:1-2 

  • We believe that God the Father created the universe by intentional design.  It was not an accident or fluke.  God is all knowing, all powerful and is loving, compassionate, just and kind.  He created humans to have fellowship with Him and wants them to be with him in heaven through eternity.  Genesis 1:1-5. Nehemiah 9:6, Isaiah 45:7, Revelation 4:11

  • We believe that Jesus is God’s answer to our sin problem.  God came to earth through Jesus to show us how much God loves us. Jesus was both fully man and fully God, and was blameless and sinless.  He offered Himself to pay the price of our sin and restore us to a right relationship with God.  He died, was buried, and rose again to show God's power in conquering death and sin.  He ascended to Heaven and will return again. Through Jesus, forgiveness is possible.  It is that forgiveness that restores fallen humanity's worth and connection back to God.  Romans 3:23, Isaiah 64:6, 1 John 1:7-9, 1 Corinthians 15:57, Romans 8:, John 3:16-17, 2 Corinthians 5:17

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is the presence of Jesus among us. The Holy Spirit guides us to a relationship with God, convicts us, and comforts us as we grow in Christ.   We believe in all the gifts of the Spirit and encourage their use for the building up of the Church.  John 3:5-8, John 15:2, 1 Corinthians 2:11-12, John 14:26, John 14:16-18, John 16:13

  • We believe that sin is a very real part of our human choice.  Our sin separates us from God and keeps us from experiencing God’s true joy for us.  Left to us we would be eternally separate from God because we cannot break our cycle of sin. We need the forgiveness from God in Jesus Christ.  We need the cross of Christ that pays the penalty of death for our sin.  We need the freedom that gives us to be in relationship with God forever no based on our goodness or badness, but rather on our belief in his love and sacrifice to cover our sin and reconnect our separation.

  • We believe that the Bible is the Authoritative Word of God and the norm and practice for the Christian life.  It was written by human authors under the divine guidance of the Holy Spirit.  In it, God reveals Himself to us and provides us with the perfect guide to life, relationships and eternity with him. 2 Timothy 3:16-1, Joshua 23:6, Isaiah 40:8, Matthew 5:17-19, 1 Thessalonians 2:3

  • We believe that Salvation is God's adoption plan for an orphaned humanity.  We removed ourselves from relationship with Him through our sin, yet He gives the gift of salvation freely to us.  We cannot earn salvation through our works or by good deeds.  We must trust God’s grace through His son Jesus and the forgiveness He offers to restore us as sons and daughters of His kingdom.  Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 8:31-39, Romans 3:23-28, Romans 5:1,8, Revelation 12:10, Galatians 4:5

  • We believe that The Church is not a building, a denomination, or a cultural gathering.  The Church is the fellowship of believers and the Body of Christ in the world.  God's design for the Church is the same as it was at its very inception.  We are to be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus to reach out to a broken and dying world, connecting people to Jesus and His Body – the Church, and together change the world around us.  1 Peter 2:9, Ephesians 4:11-13

  • We believe that Baptism is a sacrament (commanded by Christ) with promises through His word as his adopted children.    Through the waters of baptism, God establishes a relationship that establishes a way of forgiveness, new life and salvation through his son Jesus.  The Holy Spirit of God brings us to the fullness of this relationship as we accept God's claim on our lives and His grace to save us through Jesus.  This is when we become followers of Jesus.   In baptism, it is like we go into the water and die with Christ so that we also live with Christ.  We are a new creation.  We affirm baptism at any age as God’s movement and claim on our lives as was the practice in the New Testament. We also affirm the need of the baptized to grow in the care of the Christian community so that he/she will live as a follower of Jesus and affirm the covenant relationship God has established. Matthew 28:19-20, Galatians 3:26-27, Titus 3:4-7, Mark 16:16, Acts 22:16, Mark 10:13-16, Acts 2:38-39

  • We believe that the Lord’s Supper is a sacrament and commanded by God to do. Through the Lord's Supper, God comes to love us and forgive us.  It is a meal of renewal.  Jesus comes to us through these physical elements of bread & wine. 1 Corinthians 11:23-32, Matthew 26:26-29

  • We believe in the worth and value of the human being.  Created in God's image, humans have dignity.  Their worth is dependent not on accomplishments, but on God's love.  Because God sees humanity as worth dying for, we affirm and acknowledge the dignity of humans. Genesis 1:26, 1 Peter 1:18-19, Hebrews 2:6-7, Ephesians 3:17-18, Psalm 139:13-14

  • We believe eternity is not a fairy tale. It is the continuance of our life after this life.  Heaven and Hell are very real eternal places of existence.  We were created to spend eternity with God in heaven.  God wants nothing to separate you from him.  He loves you.  He sent Jesus to die for your sins.  Simply believe and follow Jesus and receive eternity in heaven with Him. John 3:16, Matthew 25:46, Luke 16:22-23, John 5:24-25, John 11:25, John 6:47-50, John 20:31, John 1:12

  • We believe in and anticipate the return of Jesus Christ.  Though we do not know the day or hour, we joyfully proclaim His return soon to inspire all people to make the most of life today by drawing people into a relationship with Jesus and living in His way. James 5:8, Matthew 24:37-39, Luke 21:34-36, Matthew 25:1-12, John 14:1-3
