Our Core Beliefs

About God

We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member of the Trinity (the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of a world that is lost. Jesus is the central figure of the Christian faith.

About Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with God but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

About Salvation

We believe that Jesus’ sacrificial death on the cross and his subsequent resurrection from the dead is the basis for salvation and the forgiveness of sin. Salvation is a free gift that God offers by his grace to anyone who trusts in what Jesus has done on their behalf as sufficient payment for their sin.

About the Christian Life

We believe that by trusting in Jesus, obeying the Bible, and daily yielding to the Holy Spirit, Christians over time become more and more like Jesus. This personal transformation reveals itself in our lives as a progressive maturing of faith, hope, and love. 

About the Church

We believe that the church is the family of God and is comprised of all people who by faith have trusted the finished work of Jesus. The church is expressed in local churches throughout the world. As the church represents the heart and mission of God, the church functions as the physical representation of Jesus in our age.

About the Bible

We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God written by human authors who were guided by the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we believe that the Bible has divine authority.
