Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, who is good and perfect in all of His qualities and is the creator of all things. We believe that God is One Being, but is also eternally existent as three distinct persons; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
We believe that the Bible is the inspired and authoritative word of God, essential for all matters of spiritual truth and life.
We believe that all people are damaged by something God calls sin and need to be rescued from both the penalty and the consequences of sin. We believe that sin has been and is destroying every aspect of the human experience; spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, relational, environmental, etc.
We believe that God is the only one able to resolve the problem of sin and restore people to a condition of perfect life, love and truth. We believe that God’s restorative work of salvation from sin is entirely dependent upon the person and work of Jesus Christ.
We believe in the uniqueness of Jesus of Nazareth, that He is fully God and fully human at the same time. We believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His message, His miracles, His crucifixion and His physical resurrection. We believe that the execution of Jesus for sins makes forgiveness possible and is the basis for salvation from sin. We believe that He is now with the Father and has authority over all things both visible and invisible.
We believe that God loves all people, feels our pain and brokenness, offers salvation to all people and is eager to receive, heal and restore anyone who sincerely believes in Jesus, who wants to become a person of love rather than of a person of sin.
We believe that everyone who accepts God’s offer of salvation by depending upon Jesus for life and godliness is reconnected to God and is inwardly transformed by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. We believe the work of the Holy Spirit results in the ability to live an increasingly Christ-like life characterized by a sincere and practical love for God and for all people.
We believe that all people who are indwelt by the Holy Spirit are equal and vital members of the Church of Jesus Christ, which is the continued expression of His life on earth and of which He is the supreme leader.
We believe in the physical return of Jesus, in the physical resurrection of all people to stand in judgment before Him, and in the eternal separation of those who love Him from those who do not love Him.
