We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and the final authority for faith, doctrine and conduct. The transforming power of God’s Word guides the life of the church and each Christian.
We believe that there is one God, perfect and eternal, the Creator of all things, existing in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God demonstrated His power, wisdom, and goodness by creating the world and everything in it. Through His divine power and providence, God sustains His creation and fulfills His purposes.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s eternal Son, fully God and fully human, born of a virgin, crucified for our sins, and that He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven. Christ’s incarnation, life, death, and resurrection is the fullness of God’s reconciling work.
We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells and fills Christians with the desire to follow Christ. The Holy Spirit enables obedience to Christ and conforms Christians to Christ’s image. The Holy Spirit brings assurance of Christ’s permanent presence and love and gives spiritual gifts to serve Christ’s body.
We believe that humankind was created in God’s image, but was alienated from God because of sin, experienced spiritual death and lives in a sin-damaged world. We, therefore, are unable to restore the broken relationship ourselves. God, in His mercy and love, through Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, restores those who believe and repent, and gives a new birth, new identity, and new nature. Jesus Christ is the only Way to receive forgiveness and escape judgment for sin.
We believe that the Church is the living Body of Christ on earth, with Christ as its head and source of life. The Body is comprised of those who have entered into a personal relationship with Christ through faith, gathered locally and around the world for worship, community and service in Christ’s Name. We observe baptism and communion as visible signs of God’s invisible grace.
We believe that the resurrected Jesus will return bodily to earth to fulfill history and complete God’s eternal plan for His creation.
