Our Beliefs

The three are equal in power and glory. God created all things, upholds all things and governs all things. (Matthew 28:19Isaiah 46:8-11)

There is one true God...

We believe that there is one true God who has been and always will be existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The three are equal in power and glory. God created all things, upholds all things and governs all things. (Matthew 28:19Isaiah 46:8-11)

The scripture is the inspired Word of God...

We believe that all scripture is the inspired Word of God. There is power in the scriptures which provides truth that instructs and guides us. Understanding their meaning and purpose points us to God’s love and power. Reading God’s word and hearing teaching based on God’s Word is an act of worship. (2 Timothy 3:16 &17Romans 15:4James 1:22)

God the Father is personal and perfect...

We believe in God the Father, who is personal and perfect in all of His ways. He is a present God who is among us. He hears us in our prayers and he saves us from spiritual death through His Son, Jesus Christ. (Matthew 6:9Isaiah 6:3Romans 11:33-36Matthew 7:11-12, Isaiah 55:6-7)

Jesus Christ is the only son of God...

We believe Jesus Christ is the only son of God and He himself in the flesh. Jesus was made through the Holy Spirit and was born of a virgin. He lived a sinless life.  He was fully man while he lived on this earth and showed us how to live fully connected to the Father.  God reconciled the world through the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus. He has fulfilled the plan of God the Father to bring His Kingdom to earth. (John 10:14-18Hebrews 4:15,Romans 5:81 Corinthians 15:1-8Ephesians 1:201 Thessalonians 4:16)

The Spirit lives in all who believe...

We believe in the Holy Spirit, left by Jesus and sent by God. THE SPIRIT LIVES in all who believe and gifts each believer with unique abilities that are to be used to point people to the greatness and goodness of the Father.  We’re called to live according to the Spirit and exercise our gifts to honor and glorify God.  We believe that loving God and loving others can only happen through the power of the Holy Spirit inside of us.  Using our gifts is an act of worship. (John 15:26, Titus 3:4 – 7Acts 1:8Romans 8:9Ephesians 1:13John 14:161 Corinthians 12:4-11)

God is willing and able to forgive us...

We believe that all people have fallen short of perfection, but yet are loved by God. He redeems us through Jesus Christ and gives us the Holy Spirit.  We believe that a relationship with Jesus fueled by the Holy Spirit changes the way we love ourselves and others.  We believe that God loves to forgive us when we miss the mark and is willing and able to forgive us over and over again. (Ephesians 2:1-10Acts 2:38Ezekiel 36:26John 1:12-13John 10:9)

God's heart is for everyone to know and love Him...

We believe in the returning of Christ to claim those who accept Him as Savior. We believe that God’s heart is for everyone to know and love Him forever. Those who choose to not give their lives to Jesus will live eternally apart from Him. (Acts 1:11Matthew 25:311 Corinthians 15:20-24Revelation 20:11Revelation 21:8)

Jesus is the head of one church...

We believe in one church. Jesus is the Head and all who accept Him are members. (1 Corinthians 12:12-13Ephesians 2:19-221 Peter 2:4-5)

Baptism is an outward declaration to follow Jesus...

We believe in water baptism as an outward declaration of a personal decision to follow Jesus and live empowered by the Holy Spirit.  We remember Jesus’ decision to die for us by taking symbols of his body and his blood called communion.  All believers are invited to share in communion services with us. (Acts 2:38 & 39, 1 Corinthians 11:23- 26Luke 3:3)
