What We Believe

God is Creator, Sovereign, eternal, personal, and a Trinity.

Jesus is God’s Son. He lived a sinless life, was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. Jesus is coming again.

Holy Spirit is the Guide, Helper, Comforter. He convicts us of sin, and empowers us for spiritual growth.

The Bible is God’s Word. It was inspired by God and recorded by men. The Bible is true.

Men are created in God’s image. God’s purpose for man is to know God and make Him known. Men are sinful. Sin separates men from God.

Salvation is reconciliation to God. It is His gift to us and is available only through faith in Jesus.

Fellowship with other believers is crucial for spiritual development. We share and learn from each others’ stories.

Baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion) are symbolic acts that remind us of what God has done for us in Christ.

Every believer has a responsibility to share the Story of Jesus.
