BELIEFS

Bible Based • Christ Centered • Mission Minded


    Bible Based

    Scriptural authority is the foundation for what we know and believe. The Bible is the Word of God and completely true. It contains the message of God's plan of salvation, mercy, grace, and love for humankind. Consequently, we encourage all people to KNOW the Word and apply the Bible so that they can live transformed lives that honor God.

    The gospel is a story about a person. Jesus Christ lived, died, and was resurrected to rescue us from our sin. We don’t deserve God’s kindness, but because of Christ we can have peace with God. We never go beyond Christ and his story; we only become more aware of the grace He offers.

    Mission Minded

    All followers of Jesus Christ are to be on a mission. The mission is to tell the gospel story about Jesus so that others can find life in him. The story is to be told everywhere- across the street and across the world. When we are aware of all that Christ became for us in the gospel, we joyfully explain the grace of God shown to us through Jesus.


    we believe that

    • God is
      There is one God, who is infinitely perfect, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that God the Father is the first person of the eternal, triune, God
    • God Comes

      We believe that Jesus Christ is the second person of the eternal, triune God who became a man, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, was buried, and physically rose from the grave to redeem sinful humanity.
      He will come again to establish His Kingdom of righteousness and peace.
    • God Draws

      We believe that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the the eternal, triune God; that the Holy Spirit is the supernatural agent in salvation, birthing all christians into the kingdom of God at conversion, thereby indwelling and sealing them until the day of Jesus' return.
    • God Speaks

      The Old and New Testaments, inerrant as originally given, were verbally inspired by God and are a complete revelation of His will for the salvation of men. They constitute the divine and only rule of Christian faith and practice.
    • God's creation

      We believe that God created all humans in his image; He created them uniquely, male and female.
    • Man's Need

      We believe that all humans are sinful and in need of salvation. Salvation is the gift of God, brought to humanity by grace alone, and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Christians are kept by God's power, forever.
    • God's Church

      We believe that the church is a spiritual organism made up of all believers everywhere for all time.
    • History has an end point

      We believe that Jesus is returning to earth to judge all people and to rule and reign with His saints forever.
