We believe God exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that God is a being who exhibits wonderful power, goodness, and love.
Genesis 1:1, John 1:1-3, Romans 1:19-20
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to live in a relationship with Him but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining the right relationship with God through their own efforts.
Genesis 1:26-27, Romans 3:23-25, Ephesians 2:8-10
We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who came to earth to show humanity what God was like, and through His physical death and resurrection to reconnect a lost world back to God.
John 1:1-4, John 3:16, John 14:6, 1 John 2:1-2
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, dwells within all believers. He fills and refills believers in response to their yielding to His Holy will. We believe the Holy Spirit was given for us to minister to needs both inside and outside of the church.
We believe that the death of Jesus Christ on the cross provides the sole basis by which humans can have a relationship with God restored. God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for and forgiveness of their sin.
John 1:12-13, John 3:16, John 11:25-26, Romans 6:23
We believe the Bible is God’s inspired written Word that uniquely reveals who He is, who we are, and how we are to live in relationship with Him. The Bible is the authoritative source by which God guides people as they go through their daily lives.
2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:105
We believe the Church is the community to which anyone who follows Jesus Christ belongs, and to whom God has entrusted His message of love, forgiveness, and reconciliation to the human race.
Ephesians 2:19-22, Romans 12:4-5, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27
We practice water baptism by immersion; a regular celebration of Communion, prayer, and anointing with oil for physical, mental, and spiritual needs; and public use of an altar for prayer and petition, as well as confessing needs to God.
