WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • There is one God who has revealed Himself in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • The Bible is given by full inspiration revealing God to us and showing how to live in His saving grace.

  • Humankind has fallen from the Creator's original design and is in desperate need of the gift of Jesus Christ--His ministry, death, and resurrection.

  • We are reconciled to God by grace through faith when we receive His gift of life and Jesus himself as Lord of our lives.

  • Believers are to be set apart to belong to God, experiencing deep cleansing and healing, as well as equipped with love and power by the Holy Spirit.

  • The Church is the visible community that confesses Jesus Christ as Lord, the covenant people of God, to be the Body of Christ on mission for the sake of the world, anticipating the return of Jesus for the completion of all things.
