What We Believe
We worship the one God, who exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
We know God through the Lord Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, who was fully God and fully human. His death on the cross is how people have been reconciled to God, bringing forgiveness of sins. His resurrection in the body conquered death. We are made right with God, and have eternal life, through Jesus Christ alone.
Human beings are created in the image of God, but have become lost through sin.
We are made right with God through grace as we accept this gift through faith.
The Holy Spirit dwells in all believers to make the life of Christ a reality in us.
The Bible is the authoritative and inspired Word of God.
The church is the body of Christ, and includes all those who confess Jesus Christ as Lord. We are a local expression of the universal church. Every believer is called to be a faithful member of a church and in covenant with God and others.
Baptism recognizes God’s gracious claim on our lives, and is a sign of our faith in him. The Lord’s Supper, or Communion, is the bread and the cup with which we give thanks for Christ’s living, dying and rising.
To be a Christian is more than merely believing the right things. It requires living a life that loves God and loves others. We seek to “walk the talk” by living lives that glorify Christ in what we do.
