What We Believe
We believe in one God, Creator of all things, holy, infinitely perfect, and eternally existing, who revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man. Jesus – Israel’s promised Messiah – was conceived through the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He lived a sinless life, was crucified under Pontius Pilate, arose bodily from the dead, ascended into heaven and sits at the right hand of God the Father as our High Priest, King and Advocate.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is one with the Father and the Son. He convicts the world, regenerates sinners, and in Him we are baptized into union with Christ and adopted as heirs to the kingdom of God. He indwells, illuminates, guides, equips and empowers believers for Christ-like living and service.
We believe the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the inspired word of God. It is timeless, relevant, authoritative, completely trustworthy, and it reveals the truth that shapes the faith and guides the paths of followers of Jesus Christ.
We believe humankind is created in God’s image, but we are alienated from God due to our broken nature as the result of sin. However, God, through the work of Jesus Christ, has begun the mission of redeeming humanity and all of creation. Our broken nature can be restored when we place our faith in Jesus and commit ourselves to a lifelong journey with Him.
We believe the church is a community of people on a faith journey together. God unites the church through the Holy Spirit and He empowers her with gifts to participate in the ongoing redemption of humankind and the world.
