Statement of Faith

We believe in:

The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things,
existing eternally in three persons
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit full of love and glory.

The unique divine inspiration,
entire trustworthiness
and authority of the Bible.

The value and dignity of all people:
created in God’s image to live in love and holiness,
but alienated from God and each other because of our sin and guilt,
and justly subject to God’s judgment.

Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine,
who lived as perfect example,
who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place,
and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.

Salvation is by God’s grace to all who put their faith in Jesus Christ alone.

The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit,
who gives to all believers a new life and calling to obedient service.

The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ,
manifest in worshiping and witnessing churches
making disciples throughout the world.

The victorious reign and future personal return of Jesus Christ,
who will judge the unrepentant and redeemed with justice and mercy,
receiving the redeemed into eternal life.

To God be glory forever.
