Our beliefs are summarized in our mission statement:
“Lead people to experience the full Life God intended, by Loving God and Loving People.”
We believe that God is the Creator of all that exists, and that He Himself has existed
eternally in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Deut 6:4; Isaiah 64:8; Matt 3:16-17; 28:19; John 16:7-15; Heb 1:2-3
We believe that God created us to worship Him and give Him glory.
Isaiah 43:7, 21; Psalms 96:9; Matt 4:10
We believe that sin has kept us from knowing God and worshipping Him, but that Jesus died on the cross to pay the penalty for our sin, was physically resurrected, and now offers a restored relationship with God to all who belive in Him.
John 3:16; Acts 2:22-39; Rom 3:21-24
We believe that salvation is a free gift given at God’s initiative, and must be received personally by faith.
John 5:24; Rom 10:9-10; Eph 2:8-9
We believe the Bible to be God’s Word, a true and fully accurate account of God’s love for us. Its purpose is to teach us how to have a relationship with Him, worship Him and bring Him glory.
Psalms 19:7-10; 2 Tim 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:19-21
We believe that Jesus established His Body on earth in the Church and that the church is a community that exists for the purpose of declaring the Gospel and glory of Jesus throughout the world.
1 Cor 12:12-31; Col 1:18-20; 1 Peter 2:9
We believe the church is a family and that every believer should be identified with a local body of believers for the purpose of mutual encouragement, spiritual growth and accountability.
Eph 4:11-16; Col 3:12-27; Heb 10:24-25
