What We Believe

About God...


There is one God, eternally existing in three distinct persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  These three are co-equal and each possesses all of the atributes of God.  God is the Creator and Sustainer of the universe and everything in it.

About Jesus...

Jesus Christ is the Son of God.  He is one with God the Father and the Holy Spirit.  Jesus Christ is our Savior, who was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on a cross for all sin, and was raised from the grave after three days to demonstrate His defeat of sin and death.

About the Holy Spirit...


The Holy Spirit is one with God the Father and Jesus Christ.  Those who accept Christ as their Savior will receive the Holy Spirit to dwell inside them.  The Holy Spirit serves as our comforter, guide, and advocate.  The Holy Spirit is given to Christians and provides guidance in living, and understanding of the Bible, and prayerfully intercedes for them. 

About the Bible...


Our foundation is based firmly upon the Bible as our final authority on Christian beliefs and as a guide to living.  The bible is divinely inspired by God, inerantly revealing the will of God concerning us in all things necessary to our salvation, given to man so that we may know and understand the truth of God and His love.

About Humanity...


All people are made in the image of God and were created to live as a part of the story of God, participating in his mission throughout the world.  Although people have tremendous potential for good, we also have the freedom to walk away from God.  Our disobedience toward God is called "sin" and that separates all humanity from God.

About Salvation...


Salvation is not something that can be purchased or earned.  It is a free gift from God provided by Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and is received through faith.  It is available to everyone who accepts Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord.  That faith is expressed through repentance of sin and baptism.

About Eternity...


People were created to exist forever.  Every person will either exist eternally in union with God in heaven through faith in Jesus Christ or eternally separated from God in hell due to our refusal to follow Him.
