What We Believe
We believe that the Bible is the foundation for both our faith and practice. In addition to affirming the historic creeds of the Church, such as the Apostles’ Creed, we believe:
The Bible is God’s unique revelation to people. It is the inspired Word of God, providing an authoritative and trustworthy rule of faith and practice.
There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is God’s Son, born of the Virgin Mary, lived a sinless life, willingly took upon Himself all of our sins, died and rose again bodily, and is at the right hand of the Father. He will return to consummate history and to fulfill the eternal plan of God.
All people are created in God’s image having an innate value and dignity but alienated from God by sin and justly subject to God’s wrath.
Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.
The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, Who gives to all believers a new life and a new calling to obedient service.
All believers are members of the Body of Christ, the one true Church universal.
