Our Beliefs

The Bible is God’s unique revelation to people.  It is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and the supreme and final authority on all matters upon which it teaches.  No other writings are vested with such divine authority.

There is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

All people are created in God’s image and matter deeply to him.  Central to the message of the Bible is that God loves people, and invites them to live in communion with himself and in community with each other.

Apart from trusting in the righteousness of Jesus Christ for salvation, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, experience separation from God.  Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort.  It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and his finished work on the cross.

Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless human life, willingly took upon himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father as our advocate and mediator.  Some day, he will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God.

The Holy Spirit, the Spirit of God, convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ.  He also indwells all believers in order to guide, convict, regenerate, instruct and empower them.

There is a final judgment which all men must face.  At the final judgment, unbelievers will be eternally separated from God. Believers will be received into God’s loving presence and rewarded for their faithfulness to him in this life.

All believers are members of the Body of Christ, the one true church universal which crosses ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines.
