The Bible

We believe the Bible to be God's written revelation to mankind, completely true, without error in original form, instructive, and authoritative in all areas of faith and practice. (John 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21)

 

The Trinity

We believe God eternally exists as one God in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each person of the Trinity is fully and completely God, sharing all of the divine attributes in a perfect loving community. (Matthew 28:19; John 1:14; Acts 5:3-4; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Colossians 1:15-20; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 1:4-6)



Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. He is fully God and fully man. After voluntarily coming to earth and living a sinless life, He died on the cross as the substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death. (Matthew 1:18-2:12; John 1:1-18; Romans 3:21-26; 1 Corinthians 12; Philippians 2:5-8; Colossians 1:15-23; Hebrews 1:1-13; 1 Peter 3:18; 1 John 1:1-2:2)



The Holy Spirit

We believe the Holy Spirit permanently indwells within all believers at the time of salvation and guides them in the journey to become like Christ. (John 14:15-26; Acts 2:1-33; Romans 8:1-27; Galatians 5:16-23; 1 John 2:20-27)



Salvation by Grace

We believe God created humans, both male and female, in His perfect image. Because of it's rebellion, however, all humanity is alienated from God. As a result, humans are incapable of having a relationship with God based solely upon their effort or works. (Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:10-18; Ephesians 2:1-3)



Grace through Jesus Christ

We believe that all who trust in Jesus Christ alone as their Lord and Savior will receive the forgiveness of sins and the free gift of eternal life. (John 3:16, 6:35-40, 10:27-30; Romans 8:28-39; Ephesians 2:8-9; Philippians 1:6; 2 Timothy 2:13; 1 Peter 1:3-9; 1 John 5:11-13)



Growing Spiritually, Giving Generously, and Going Faithfully

We believe that Christians should develop in their faith and be committed to a life of personal devotion to God. Commitment is expressed through corporate and private worship, participation in small group Bible study, meaningful service in ministry, giving financially in a God-honoring way, and intentionally introducing others to a personal relationship with God. (2 Corinthians 9:7; Acts 2:42-47; Romans 12:4-8; Matthew 5:16; Matthew 28:19-20)
