WHAT WE BELIEVE 

God

We believe in one God eternally existing in three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God.

(Deuteronomy 6:4Jeremiah 32:27Acts 15:18Psalm 139:1-10John 1:1, 14Matthew 3:16-1728:18-201 John 5:20Acts 5:3-4)

 

 

 

Creation and Providence

We believe that God created the world from nothing and rules over all things at all times in all places.

(Genesis 1:126-273:1-7Matthew 19:4-624:37-39Romans 5:1218-193:236:23)

 

 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible was written by human authors under the authority of the Holy Spirit, and can be trusted as God's word in its entirety.

(2 Timothy 3:14-172 Peter 1:19-21Galatians 3:16Psalm 119:89, 160John 17:17Matthew 5:17-18Revelation 22:18-19)

 

 

 

Sin

We believe that we live in a broken world and it has left the world in desperate need of salvation.

(Genesis. 3, Romans. 3:9-20, Ephesians. 2:1-3)

 

 

 

Salvation

We believe that salvation is by grace through faith in Christ alone.Through faith we are united with the risen Christ, raised with Christ, and granted the same Holy Spirit power that raised Christ.

 (Ephesians 2:8-9Romans 10:9, 13John 3:1-710:27-301 Peter 1:3-5Romans 8:35-391 John 2:18-19)

 

 

 

The Church

We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world for the glory of God. It is committed to the teachings of Jesus and obeying all his commands.

 (Matthew 16:1822:34-4028:18-20Ephesians 1:22-233:20-214:11-161 Corinthians 11:23-26Acts 2:41-4711:19-30)

 

 

 

Resurrection and the Kingdom of God

We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world in the future to judge the living and the dead.

(Acts 1:9-112 Thessalonians 1:3-101 Thessalonians 4:13-5:11Matthew 24Daniel 9:27,12:1Revelation 20:1-6)
