Win people to Jesus Christ, make disciples, and meet the needs of people.

What We Believe

We believe that God is understood in three distinct forms. Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are commonly used to refer to the threefold nature of God. Sometimes we refer to the Holy Trinity in other terms such as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer.

We believe in one God, who created the world and all that is in it. We believe God is sovereign. We believe that God is loving and that we can experience God’s love and grace. We believe that God loves all humankind, no matter which religion we belong to, or if we belong to no religion at all.

We Believe that Jesus is the Son of God. He was human and is divine. He lived as a man and died when he was crucified. God raised Jesus from the dead and the risen Christ lives today. We believe Jesus is our Savior and in Christ we receive abundant life and forgiveness of sins. We believe Jesus is Lord and that we are called to pattern our lives after his.

We Believe that the Holy Spirit is God with us. We believe the Holy Spirit comforts us when we are in need and convicts us when we stray from God. We believe that the Holy Spirit awakens us to God’s grace and empowers us to live obediently.

We Believe the Bible is God’s divinely inspired Word and it is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

We believe God created human beings in God’s image and we all can choose to be in relationship with God.

We believe the church is the “communion of saints,” a community made up of all past, present and future disciples of Christ. We believe the church is called to worship God and to be and make disciples of Jesus Christ.

We believe as disciples of Christ we are to follow his example and meet the needs of people through feeding the hungry, welcoming the outcast, clothing the poor, and caring for the sick and hurting. We continue Christ’s work for human wholeness. We believe we are to serve in a variety of social justice ministries both local and global.
