What We Believe

What we believe is well described in this age-old Creed:

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and in Jesus Christ, his only Son our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. He descended into hell; the third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Ghost; the global church, the communion of saints; the forgiveness of sins; the resurrection of the body, and the life everlasting. Amen.

We believe in God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

Salvation through faith in Jesus Christ.

The Bible as the Word of God

Your view of God determines how well you live

God is Life
We believe that all things, both seen and unseen, are creatively designed by God. All has come to exist through His infinite power and thus intrinsically reflects His glory and nature to the broad world.
God is Love
We believe that love is central to His character and His relationship with us. His love reached its pinnacle through the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus bore the weight of sin so each of us could be found righteous and in relationship with our Creator.
God is Light
We believe that the divine purpose for every person is illuminated by God. The Spirit is an intimate rendering of heavenly wisdom, empowerment, and presence to fulfill the purposes and plans of God.
