What We Believe
The Bible is the Word of God and our final authority for faith and Christian living.
The universe is the purposeful creation of a personal, loving, almighty God.
All humanity is made in the image of the Creator and is of infinite worth.
The world is cursed by sin as a result of human rebellion against God. Suffering, death,
and separation from God is the common experience of humanity. Without God's grace, this is humanity's fate for eternity. Jesus Christ offers new and eternal life to everyone who believes that He was:- The Son of God in the flesh
- Born from a virgin
- Sinless in the life He lived
- Sacrificed on the cross
- Resurrected the third day and ascended into heaven
The Holy Spirit lives in believers and enables us to live our lives (publicly and privately) according to the principles taught in God's Word.
The Christian faith is lived in the community of the church. We express our faith in our worship of God and our witness to others using the spiritual gifts God has given us.
Jesus Christ will return to our world, ending history as we know it, beginning the final judgment, and welcoming believers into his eternal kingdom.
