We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, ultimately authored by the triune God, focused on Jesus Christ, written by men under the influence of the Holy Spirit, possessing supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that there is one living and true God, an eternal community of divine persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), who are equal in every way, operating in distinct and complementary ways throughout the history of creation, fall, redemption, and new creation.
God the Father
We believe in God, the Father, a personal being, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that his mission is to magnify the riches of his mercy by redeeming the brokenness and sin of all who trust in Jesus Christ and in renewing the whole world.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, sent by the Father and incarnated by the Holy Spirit. We believe in his sinless life, miracles and teachings. We believe in His substitutionary atoning death, bodily resurrection, ascension into heaven, continual prayer for his people, and personal visible return to earth.
The Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit, sent from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgement, and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and equips them with gifts to serve the church.
Man, Sin, and Salvation
We believe that all people are created in the glorious image of God, disfigured by Adam’s sin, which is inherited and reflected by all humanity. As a result, all humanity is under the just condemnation of the one, true, holy God. However, we joyfully believe that all who repent of their sin and trust Jesus Christ as their Redeemer are delivered from condemnation and renewed in the image of God.
We believe the Church is made up of all believers everywhere in the world, and locally the church is a group of believers who are organized to worship God, preach the Gospel among all nations, and demonstrate its commitment to Christ by compassionate service to the needs of human beings and by promoting righteousness and justice.
We believe Jesus gave the Church two sacraments: baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe baptism is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in Jesus, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. We believe the Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience and through partaking of the bread and the fruit of the vine, we memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
We believe that Christians should live for the glory of God and the good of others, that their conduct should be like Christ’s rendered possible by the gospel.
We believe in the personal and visible return of the Lord Jesus Christ to earth and the renewal of all things. We believe in the resurrection of the body, the final judgment, the eternal joy of the redeemed, and the endless suffering of the wicked.
