We Believe:

  • In one God, creator of all things. We believe that God is revealed in creation, through Holy Scripture and in the person of Jesus.
  • That Jesus is both fully God (divine) and human in a way that we cannot explain and that Jesus continues to work in us by God’s Holy Spirit. God exists, then, as the Trinity of God the Father, Jesus the Son and Holy Spirit.
  • That through Jesus death God offers us a close relationship with Him by forgiving our sins the barrier between us and God. God’s special love for us is evidenced in the sacrifice of Jesus the Christ on the cross. This forgiveness is granted simply through our faith.
  • That we need to acknowledge our sin, repent of that sin and ask for forgiveness. Through God’s grace we are given forgiveness. Eternal life with God in eternity is granted with love and mercy to those whose lives reflect faith in Jesus, and those who are unfaithful will suffer eternal separation from God.
  • That the Holy Spirit transforms lives of believers so that they reflect God’s love and mercy.
  • That God is revealed in both the Old and New Testaments as a God of love for all of creation and that God has given humankind a special place to glorify Him in how we care for that creation.
  • That Scripture is the inspired word of God, given to help us discern God’s purpose for our lives.
  • That there is a unity of all believers in Jesus Christ and that the universal church comprises all believers as the body of Christ and who are committed to worship, witnessing to their faith in word and deed and to making disciples throughout the world.
