To be a community where you can:
BELONG to something bigger
BECOME who you were meant to be
Statement of Faith
When it comes to theology and doctrine, we follow the motto: “In essentials unity; in non-essentials liberty, in all things love.” That means we want to agree as a community on the essentials of the Christian faith, and we want to allow room for disagreement on non-essentials. We believe that the essentials, the core of Christian belief found in Scripture, are as follows:
GOD – We believe in one God, Creator of all things, who exists eternally as a Trinity of persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS – We believe Jesus Christ our Lord is the eternal Son of God, truly human and truly God.
HOLY SPIRIT – We believe the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God and is fully divine. The Holy Spirit works to transform followers of Jesus into His likeness from the inside out. The Spirit empowers God’s people with various gifts that are used to strengthen the Church and serve the world.
BIBLE – We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are divinely inspired and are the supreme authority in all matters of faith and conduct.
HUMANITY – We believe God created humanity in His image. Because of sin, every person is in desperate need of God’s grace, forgiveness and transforming love.
SALVATION – We believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus reconciled humanity to God. We become new creations and enter into a right relationship with God by grace through faith in Jesus.
MISSION – We believe Jesus sends His followers on a mission to invite people to be reconciled to God. Included in this mission is partnering with God to see His Kingdom come on earth as it is in heaven.
ETERNITY – We believe that one day there will be an end to history where everyone will face the perfect love and perfect justice of God.
