Our Beliefs

Our Essential Beliefs

The Trinity

We believe in one God who exists eternally as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

 

The Bible

The Bible is the Word of God and is our final authority in doctrine and practice.

 

Humanity

All people are created in the image of God and, therefore, have intrinsic worth.

 

Sin

Humanity, as whole, has chosen to reject God and must be saved.

 

Salvation

Jesus Christ is the Savior of all people through his life, death for our sins, and resurrection.

 

Faith

Any individual who places their faith in Jesus Christ will be saved apart from any righteousness of their own.

 

The Church

The universal Church consists of all people who believe in Jesus Christ, and their mission, as the body of Christ, is to tell the good news about Jesus by their words and by their acts of love to all people.

 

The Sacraments

Christ commanded us to baptize in water all those who believe in him.  He instituted the Lord’s Supper to be practiced by the church in remembrance of his death.

 

Christ's Second Coming

Christ will come again physically to establish his kingdom on earth, and this will be accompanied by the resurrection of the dead and judgment of all people.
