Statement of Faith and Christian Background
Please read our Statement of Faith below:
We believe that God is one being – infinitely just, wise, good, loving, and holy, and existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. He is the sovereign Creator of the universe and by His providence sustains and rules all that He has made.
We believe that Jesus Christ, Son of God, is fully divine and fully human, and that He saves His people from their sin by His life, death and resurrection, and is now ruling over His church and the world through His Word and Spirit.
We believe that the Holy Spirit regenerates sinners, resides in believers, and enables them to live a godly life and to use the spiritual gifts He has given them.
We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the inspired, infallible, and inerrant Word of God, our final authority in matters of faith, doctrine, and life.
We believe that God is calling all people to believe in, and be obedient to, His Son, Jesus Christ, and to become members of His Body, the Church.
We believe that man, male and female, were created in the image of God, but fell into sin through the disobedience of Adam and Eve. As a result of the fall, all people are born sinful and in need of salvation.
We believe that sinners are justified by grace through faith on the basis of the finished work of Christ (His death and resurrection) and live this life by the power of God.
We believe that marriage is a covenantal relationship created by God for a man and a woman. Sexual intimacy is a gift from God and has its proper place only within the context of marriage.
We believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will return to renew the whole creation and to judge the living and the dead.
We believe that God’s greatest commandments are to Love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, and mind and to Love our neighbors as ourselves.
