The Triune God
We believe and celebrate that there is only one God who eternally exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We affirm the historic belief in the Trinity. We affirm the historic belief in the Trinity. God is the Father, Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of all things.
Jesus the Christ
We believe and celebrate that Jesus is the Christ (Anointed King) who is fully God and fully man. The Son has always existed, as all things were created through him. Jesus was born of the virgin Mary and is God the Son incarnate. He was crucified under Pontius Pilate and was resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit three days later.
We believe and celebrate that the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and is God’s Spirit within, among, and at work in the lives God’s people. The Holy Spirit draws people to salvation and when we respond in obedience to the gospel, the Spirit of God indwells us, makes us a new creation in Christ, and seeks to fill our whole being with His presence for worship, Christ-like character, freedom, power and gifts.
We believe and celebrate that there are sixty-six books located in the Bible that collectively bring together our Holy Scriptures. They are the infallible guide for faith, life, and practice. They are to be interpreted according to their context and purpose. God continues to speak to his people through his Word.
Image of God
We believe and celebrate that all humans are equally and uniquely created in the image of God.
Being made in the image of God means that all people should be treated with dignity, respect, and love.
Because of the Image of God in humanity, Christians should reject racism, hatred, injustice, abuse, assault, violence, etc.
We believe and celebrate that salvation is found in Christ alone and it is the free gift of God that must be received by faith alone. Scripture teaches that as a result of sin, all are totally lost in need of being found.
Because of Christ’s atoning work, Jesus heals our depravity; reconciles us back to God; gives us new eternal life and victory over death; and pays the debt of our sin.
Kingdom of God
We believe and celebrate that the Kingdom of God has been brought close by the first coming of Jesus and will be brought into complete reality when he returns. The Kingdom of God exists wherever God’s people are willingly living under the rule, reign, and sovereignty of God. God is sovereign over all, ruling over all, and reigning over all, but those who follow Jesus into his Kingdom will experience the wholeness, goodness, and life-giving nature of the Kingdom
We believe and celebrate that the Church is the chosen people of God who are called to reach the lost, make disciples, and expand the Kingdom, globally and locally. The Church is made up of all believers in all cultures throughout time and across the earth who are empowered by the Holy Spirit for the purposes and mission of God.
We believe and celebrate that Jesus will return in a glorious manner to bring completion to redemptive history. In a way, salvation and new creation have already been inaugurated, but not yet consummated. At Christ’s return, the Kingdom of God will be fully realized, and every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus is Lord.
At his return, all things will be made new.
