What We Believe

  • We believe that there is one God in three distinct beings: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, all working together to bring all things into unity with God.
  • We believe that the Father sent the Son into the world, in the human form of Jesus, to love, teach, sacrifice and to bring all into a redemptive relationship with God.
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is given as a Comforter, Guide, Encourager, Teacher, and Advocate.
  • We believe the Bible, a compilation of prose, poetry, wisdom narratives and history is God-inspired and authoritative.
  • We believe that salvation is a gift God provided through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross and our acceptance of that gift defines our Christian faith.
  • We believe that every person has worth as a creation of God.
