What We Believe

  • There is only one eternal, sovereign God who exists in three persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

  • God created the heavens and the earth and declared His creation to be good. 

  • All humans have sinned and live with a sin nature, which prevents them from rendering pleasing obedience to God on their own.

  • All humans, though marred by sin, bear God's image and are therefore worthy of dignity and honor.

  • Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin and was both fully God and fully man.

  • Jesus lived a sinless life, taught about the kingdom of God and how God wants us to live in this life.  He died on the cross for the sins of the world, was raised from the dead by the power of the Spirit and lives today at the right hand of the Father.

  • If anyone desires the forgiveness of their sins, they must repent of their sins, believe that Jesus is the Son of God, and they will be forgiven.

  • All those who are truly born again will seek to live out the teachings of Jesus, summarized by the two greatest commands:  "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind" and "Love your neighbor as yourself."

 

  • The Bible is inspired by God and is therefore our ultimate and final authority for all matters of faith and practice.

 

  • We believe that the spiritual gifts mentioned in the New Testament are available to the Church today. These gifts (charismata) are manifestations of the Holy Spirit, given to strengthen, comfort, and encourage the Church. These manifestations are mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:1-31, 1 Peter 4:10-11, and Romans 12:6-8. These lists are not exhaustive, meaning the Holy Spirit’s manifest presence is not limited to them.

  • Baptism is the outward sign of what God had already done in the individual’s life and is a testimony to all that the person now belongs to Jesus. It is identification with Jesus and is affected in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

  • Communion is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again; it is a sign of our participation in Him.

  • Jesus is coming one day to usher in His final and perfect kingdom on earth. On that day He will judge the living and the dead.  All those who believe and obey Jesus will live forever with him in the new creation.

  • According to God's design and intent, sex difference (male and female) is an intrinsic part of what marriage is.  While same-sex marriage is legal in some countries, it does not represent a historical, Christian view of marriage.

  • God designed sexual relations to take place within the covenant bond of marriage.

  • The Fall has corrupted God's original intent for human sexuality in all persons; therefore, all people - straight or non-straight - experience corruption in their sexuality.

  • Simply experiencing attraction to the same sex (or being gay) is not in itself a morally culpable sin. 

  • God desires all people to embrace their biological sex as part of their human identity. 

  • All forms of abuse, slander, dehumanization, or oppression toward fellow humans is an affront against God's sacred image, which has been stamped upon all people.​
