Whether you have a deep relationship with God or are curious, come experience a service and feel free to ask questions.
Our beliefs are rooted in Scripture and describe how we view God, Jesus, humanity, the Bible, and God’s redemptive work in the world.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to all people. It tells the true story of God, man, sin,
redemption, and reconciliation. Scripture is comprised of a total of sixty-six books: thirty-nine
books of the Old Testament and twenty-seven books of the New Testament. Since the Word of
God is inspired by God, the Bible is the supreme source of truth, without error, and completely
relevant for daily living.
We believe in one God, who exists in three equally divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Father is the Creator of heaven and earth. God the Father is great, all-powerful, all-knowing, ever-present, unchanging, completely worthy of our trust, and holy. He is loving, compassionate, and faithful to His people and His promises. God is sovereign, created all things for the praise of His glory, and intends for man to live in a right relationship with Him.
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was present with the Father at creation and had fellowship with the Father and Spirit before man was created. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people through His death on the cross. After three days, Jesus rose from the dead, defeating death so that we could have life. He is God’s plan for bringing those who are enemies of God back into a right relationship with Him. Through his substitutionary death, He revealed divine love and upheld divine justice, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God. He ascended to heaven and will return to earth one day to reign as King.
We believe the Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus. He unites believers to Jesus Christ through faith and dwells within them. He provides Christians with the power for righteous living, an understanding of spiritual truth, and the guidance for doing what is right. He convicts people of sin, comforts, gives spiritual gifts, and makes people more like Christ.
We believe God created human beings, male and female in His image. Adam and Eve, the first two human beings, were made to complement each other in a one-flesh union that establishes the only normative pattern of sexual relations for men and women. As the only part of the created order that is made in God’s image, human beings are to be like Him in character and person. From the moment of conception, human beings are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although each person has the potential for good, all are marred by sin against God. Sin separates humans from God and causes hardship in their lives. As a result of sin, people cannot attain a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed on the cross provides the only way to salvation – through forgiveness of sin. Salvation occurs when people place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin. Salvation is a gift from God and cannot be earned through a person’s efforts.
We believe that by His Word and by His Spirit, God created the Church, the body of all believers, calling sinful people into fellowship. The Church is not a religious institution or denomination. Rather, the Church, the body of Christ, is made up of those who have become followers of Jesus Christ. The Church exists to worship and serve God by doing His will. The Church has been called to preach the gospel and make disciples to transform the world. The Holy Spirit has gifted the Church for equipping people to mature and grow. All members of the body of Christ are to be a vital and committed part of the local church (the church). All members are to be equipped for ministry to one another and to the world.
We believe, that as revealed in His Word, God will bring this world to an end at His set time.Jesus Christ will fulfill His promise and physically return to the earth in glory. At this time, the dead will be raised, and Jesus will judge all people in righteousness. According to Scripture, each person will receive their reward. The righteous will dwell forever in heaven with the Lord in resurrected and glorified bodies based solely on their faith in the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The unrighteous will be consigned to hell, the place of everlasting punishment, for rejecting the provision of God for their sins.
