What We Believe


The Bible is God’s completely true story about who He is, what He has done, what He is doing, and what He will do. It was given by God to human writers and reflects their backgrounds, styles, and use of language. The Bible is the final authority on all matters to which it speaks.


There is one God, who exists as three persons living in perfect community − Father, Son, and Spirit. God created everything and sustains everything by His life. He is holy, all-powerful, all-knowing, unchanging, and full of mercy and grace.


Jesus Christ, God’s Son, became fully human when He was born to the Virgin Mary. He was fully human and fully God. He lived a perfect life in place of our imperfect lives. He died, as our substitute, the death we deserved to die because of our selfishness. He physically rose from the dead and offers us full life by the promise of His own resurrection. Jesus ascended into heaven and today is our representative, intercessor, and advocate with God the Father.


We experience the full life and presence of God through the Spirit, who convicts us of sin, points us to Christ, and applies Christ’s work to our lives. He gives gifts and power to the church, and He is the one who creates Biblical community in the church. He reveals truth and guides our lives, individually and corporately.


We are connected to God in only one way − by choosing to accept the forgiveness and reconciliation offered to us by Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. If we ask Him to, God treats us as if we were Christ because He treated Christ as if He were us. God’s gift of grace makes us His adopted sons and daughters. There is nothing we can do to deserve this life − it is all a gift of God and our job is simply to receive it. When we do, God begins the process of changing our hearts and minds from the inside-out and making our character more and more like Jesus’. And as we are reconciled to God, we also have hope of being more fully reconciled to other people.


In His own time and in His own way, God will bring the world to an end. According to His promise, Christ will return personally and visibly to judge the living and the dead. This will begin a new era of God’s universally visible reign which will last forever.


If we are in relationship with Christ, we are part of the church. The church is universal but is always expressed locally. The church is the visible and local demonstration of the new community Christ came to create. The Spirit leads our community life as we are devoted to worshiping God, understanding and applying the Bible to our lives, offering connection to others, living life together, serving our community, and using our Spirit-given gifts to serve Christ and others. The church is made up of imperfect people who are responding day-by-day to God’s stunning grace.

The main responsibility of the church is to connect with people who are outside of a relationship with Christ. The church then helps those who respond to become whole-hearted Christ-followers.
