What We Believe
"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer
We believe in the authority of the Bible. As it says in 2 Timothy 3:16, “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.” We believe the Bible is God’s instruction for our lives.
We believe in the power of prayer. We believe through prayer God helps us with our spiritual and physical needs as we seek to live in obedience to Him. As it says in James 5:6, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” 2 Chronicles 7:14 says, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”
We believe that God loves us. Romans 5:8 says, “God demonstrates His love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Our mission is the fullness of loving God and loving others.
We believe there is one living and true God, the maker and preserver of all things. And in the unity of this Godhead there are three persons: the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit. These three are one in eternity, deity and purpose; everlasting, of infinite power, wisdom, and goodness.
God came in Jesus Christ to reconcile people to Himself. Conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, He joined together the deity of God and the humanity of mankind. Jesus of Nazareth was God in flesh, truly God and truly human. He came to save us. For us the Son of God suffered, was crucified, dead and buried. He poured out His life as a blameless sacrifice for our sin and transgressions. We gratefully acknowledge that He is our Savior, the one perfect mediator between God and us.
As Scripture foretold, Jesus arose from the grave concurring death. After Jesus' resurrection, He ascended into heaven. There He sits as our exalted Lord at the right hand of God the Father, where He intercedes for us until all His enemies shall be brought into complete subjection. He will return to judge all people. Every knee will bow and every tongue confess Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
A new life and a right relationship with God are made possible through the redemptive acts of God in Jesus Christ. God, by His Spirit, acts to impart new life and establish people in a true relationship with Himself as they repent and their faith responds to His grace.
