HOW
By making God’s presence known, experienced and celebrated!

 

 

GOD
We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. God came to earth in the human form of Jesus in order to restore the broken relationship between God and humanity.
THE BIBLE
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and the most authoritative source for faith and life. Scripture provides direction in our contemporary situation so we pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit for insight, teaching and comfort.
EVERYONE
We believe that all people were created in the image of God and were intended to enjoy the fullness of life that comes with a right relationship with God. Humanity became alienated from God through disobedience and we are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through our own efforts and therefore are in need of salvation through Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross.
SALVATION
We believe that salvation is the deliverance from the consequences of sinning against  a Holy God. The blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross as the perfect sacrifice provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Salvation is freely offered to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ.
DISCIPLES OF CHRIST
We start from we are and grow into the Way of Christ. There is no requirement to be educated, eloquent, or intellectual. We do not have to be perfect or well-spoken. Everyone can walk in the path of discipleship today which is obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God.   A true spirit of obedience flows from a heart full of gratitude for God’s amazing grace in our lives and is the true sign of our love for God.
THE CHURCH
We believe the church is the body of Christ and Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving God and making God known.  The church at worship provides an opportunity to praise, listen, and respond to God. As a community of believers, we seek to live out the Christian story for others to see.
LIVING FAITH
We believe that in every generation the church needs to confess its faith anew. That confession must at one and the same time be the ancient faith of the church and yet spoken into the mood and questions of its own time.
This is fitting in a faith which has as its central affirmation the great truth that “God in Christ is reconciling the world unto Himself.” The living God became the person of Christ and walked in our midst in a world that to an astonishing extent shared many of the same problems we do now. If God could get involved with the grim fabric of life, then so can God’s church! So too, must the faith we confess.
