There is room for diversity of ideas within the body of Christ, and we do not expect that every person will believe the same on secondary issues. However, on these essentials of the faith we agree.
THE BIBLE – We believe that the Bible was not only written by men, but also the very Word of God and is the final authority on what we believe and how we live.
THE TRINITY – We believe that there is only one God, who eternally exists in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST – We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son, is the perfect expression of God and the only way to Him. He was begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin, true God and true man, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, rose from the dead, and now sits at God’s right hand.
HOLY SPIRIT – We believe that the Holy Spirit is a real Person and is alive and active today, bringing the power and presence of God into our lives and the world.
MANKIND – We believe that all men and women are created in the image of God, yet have sinned and fallen short of His expectations. They are therefore separated from Him and completely unable, on their own, to return to God, the source of their life.
SALVATION – We believe that Jesus Christ so loved the world that He lived a perfect life for us and died as a sacrifice for our sins. For all who believe and follow him, he agrees to substitute his life for ours so that we can experience restoration with God, forgiveness without exception, and freedom to walk in wholeness and health.
GODLINESS – We believe that God empowers us to respond to this new life of grace by continually striving to grow in obedience, repentance, and healing, being daily transformed into His likeness.
THE CHURCH – We believe that there is one, true, universal Church, composed of all genuine believers in Jesus Christ regardless of their religious traditions. Local churches are reflections of the larger body of Christ, where believers are called to gather and worship together in smaller congregations.
FUTURE THINGS – We believe that Jesus Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead. Those living in relationship with Him will enjoy eternity in His presence, while those without true faith will be separated forever.
