OUR BELIEFS

We know there are a lot of things we believe and we can go on and on about it.  Instead, we wanted to share with you the main things we cling to, understanding there is so much we have yet to learn.  Ultimately, we find our unity in Jesus and in Him alone.


GOD - FATHER




We believe that there is one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons – Father, Son (Jesus), and Holy Spirit. 
We believe that God the Father is both the creator and sustainer of the heavens and the earth. All of creation was made to give glory to God. God sovereignly rules all things according to His own eternal wisdom and for the ultimate purpose to glorify Himself. 


(Genesis 1:1-31, Psalm 145:8-9, Romans 1:20, Ephesians 3:9, 
Revelation 4:11)




GOD - JESUS




We believe Jesus was virgin born, fully human and fully God. Living a sinless life, He died on the cross for our sins, rose from the dead, and will return again, as predicted, to claim each of us who believes in Him, as His own.  


(Romans 3:24-25, John 1:1-14, 1 Corinthians 15:12-23) 




GOD - HOLY SPIRIT

We believe that the Holy Spirit works progressively in every believer to transform us into the image of Christ. The Holy Spirit acts as our helper, empowering believers for worship, witness, and service. In addition, the Holy Spirit equips us with gifts for the building up of others for the effective witness of the Gospel to the world.


(John 16:8-15, 2 Corinthians 3:18, Ephesians 2:22, 1 Corinthians 12:4-11)




THE BIBLE






We believe the bible is the word of God, written by man through God breathed inspiration.  The bible communicates the story of God to the world, revealing His character and love for humanity.

(2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 19:7-11, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 3:16-17)

HUMANITY

We believe all humans are created as the image bearers of God and to be in relationship with Him.  However, our reliance on ourselves rather than God led us to our brokenness and our walking away from Him.  We have ALL SINNED and fallen short of the glory of God.  Yet, God calls us back to a relationship with Him.  He does not force Himself upon anyone, but instead, allows us to choose Him as He demonstrated His great love for us through Jesus.  His greatest desire is to redeem all of His children to Himself so we can experience full and meaningful lives in the present and for eternity with Him.

(John 3:16, Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, 2 Peter 3:19, 1 Timothy 2:3-6, Luke 15:11-32)
