Core Beliefs

    TRIUNE GOD: We believe in one God eternal, the Creator of all things, revealed as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    JESUS CHRIST: We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who was born, lived, taught, died, and was raised back to life all to be the ransom for our sin.

    ATONEMENT: We believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and that, by trusting in His death, we can be restored to a right relation to God.

    HOLY SPIRIT: We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is ever present and always active in the world, guides us into salvation.

    THE BIBLE: We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to be saved.

    SINFUL NATURE: We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and act and need God’s forgiveness and cleansing.

    PREVENIENT GRACE: We believe that God has enabled us to turn to God and away from sin but that we are not forced to do so.

    SALVATION: We believe that each person must repent, turn away from sin, and trust Christ in order to be saved.

    SANCTIFICATION: We believe that after salvation, God desires each individual to be fully submitted in thoughts, attitudes, decisions, emotions, and lifestyle to the power and guidance of the Holy Spirit. When we make a complete commitment to God, God cleanses our spirit, fills us with God’s perfect love, and gives us the power to live victoriously.
