OUR CORE BELIEFS

The Bible

We believe the Bible is the authoritative Word of God.

One God

We believe in One God as seen in God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

God the Father

  • God is eternal. He was in the beginning and will be for all eternity.

  • God created everything.

  • God created each person in His own image, therefore all human life has value.

  • God created each person to live in a relationship with Him, however, this relationship has been broken because of our sin

God the Son, Jesus Christ

  • Jesus Christ is God, the Son. 

  • Jesus Christ was sent from Heaven to Earth by God to share a message of forgiveness and restore our relationship with Him.

  • Jesus died to save all people from the eternal consequences of their sin.

  • Jesus rose again and is alive in Heaven today. He gives believers new life for today and for eternity.

  • Jesus is the only way to salvation.

  • Jesus gives salvation as a free gift to those who trust in Him alone.

God the Holy Spirit

  • The Holy Spirit draws us into living our relationship with Jesus.

  • The Holy Spirit empowers those who believe to tell others about salvation through Jesus Christ.

  • The Holy Spirit guides those who believe to live a life that pleases God and connects others to Christ.

OUR CORE VALUES

The Commandments

We value the two Great Commandments, to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength and to love others as ourselves.

The Great Commission

We value the Great Commission which commands us to teach others about God and to lead all people into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ.
