WHAT WE BELIEVE
God exists as Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. He is the only one, true God, and has revealed himself to us through creation, the Bible, and Jesus Christ.
The Bible is God’s Word, inspired by God and without error. All Scripture is a testimony to Christ, who is Himself the focus of divine revelation.
The only way a person can be right with God is by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Salvation is offered by God freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by his own death took the punishment for our sin. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
God’s grace means that we cannot earn or deserve a right standing with God and a place in heaven. It also means that our lives are inspired by the life of Christ within us. God’s acceptance and pleasure are on the basis of our identification with Christ, not on our moral or religious performance.
The Church is a local community of baptized believers, whose head is Jesus. It cooperates with other churches to accomplish the Lord’s purposes in our world. Every member of the church is gifted by the Holy Spirit for building up the body.
