We believe in embracing all God’s children. God’s heart is for all people.
All people matter to God, so he sent the church to bring people into His kingdom. Everybody’s welcome, nobody’s perfect, and through Jesus all things are possible.
We believe in the significance of the Church family and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together for fellowship, prayer, and ‘breaking of bread’.
We believe faith, hope, and love characterize the Christian life. We agree to differ, unite to serve, and resolve to love.
We believe that Christ is recognized as the head of the church, not any person, group, or religious organization.
While there is value in cooperation across groups of Christians; the local church should be self-governing and independent from any denominational control.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God and equips us for good works.
We take the bible seriously, not literally finding more grace in the search for meaning than absolute certainty. People were moved by the Spirit of God to write the words of scripture and through the sharing of ideas; we can come to a fuller understanding of what the Bible teaches.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We believe there is one God, who exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is loving and holy.
Jesus is with us through His Spirit.
2 Corinthians 13:14 ~ Matthew 28:19a
We believe that Jesus Christ was God in the flesh.
He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins. He arose from the dead and ascended into Heaven. He will return again to judge the living and the dead; and reign over all the Earth.
We believe Jesus commands us to show/ tell others the Good News and make them disciples.
We experience this through knowing God’s grace, love, and fellowship.
Matthew 28:19-20 The Message
We believe God’s laws can be reduced to two simple principles: love God and love others.
These two commandments summarize all God’s law and prophecy.
Matthew 22:37/39 ~ Mark 12:28b-31
We believe that God intends for us to be of freewill and to employ ourselves to serve one another in acts of love.
We glorify God through loving service to others. The Bible speaks of love as an action and attitude, not just an emotion.
We believe in tithing of our time, talents, and treasures to sustain the ministry and mission of Christ in our community.
A giving attitude is more important than the amount given.
2 Corinthians 9:7
We believe baptism is an outward sign of entering into a new covenant with Christ.
Baptism is a sign of faith shared amongst the community of faith.
Acts 2:38 The Message
We believe that the Lord’s Supper was Jesus’s last meal with His disciples and is to be observed in commemoration of the Lord’s death until He comes again.
Further, we believe the celebration of communion is to confirm the faith and other graces of Christians; and to be a bond, pledge, and renewal of their communion with Him, and of their church fellowship. All are welcome at His table.
We believe in Jesus’ teachings of:
Loving God; loving your neighbor as yourself; forgiving others who have wronged you; loving your enemies; asking God for forgiveness of your sins; Jesus is the Messiah and was given the authority to forgive others; repentance of your sins is essential; don’t be hypocritical.
Mark 12:30-31 ~ John 14:6 ~ Matthew 6:14-15
We believe the Holy Spirit gives gifts to every follower to be used for the building up of the body of Christ.
Each believer has the responsibility to discover their gifts in the life of the Church and to be faithful in their ministry.
1 Corinthians 12:7 ~ 1 Peter 4:10
We believe that while we are sinners, Christ died for our sins.
Sin separates us from God; God forgives sinners, as that is part of His loving nature. Salvation is freely given through grace by faith, so that we may become personally reconciled with Christ and God’s word to work in our lives.
Psalm 32:1~John 3:16 ~ Ephesians 2:8-9~Luke 17:20-21
We believe that heaven is the glorious home of God and our eternal home.
The gift of eternal life is promised to by Jesus to all who believe in Him.
We believe the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
