What we believe
Our aim is to love God and love people. In doing so, we believe we are following the example of living that Jesus modeled for us. The following beliefs are never forced upon anyone but we believe to be true based on a full evaluation of the Bible.
In an act of ultimate love, God sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to pay the penalty for our sin. Jesus willingly gave himself to die on the cross as an atonement for our sins. His resurrection proves his divine Sonship and all who repent of their sin and put their faith and trust in Christ alone (not in their own good deeds) for salvation will be saved from an eternity separate from Him.
The church is not a building, but a people. God's desire for every believer is to gather together with a local church and that gathering is a gift from Him to us. Through being together we grow in our relationship with Him and we find the fulfillment of community we were created to have. The mission of the church is to share with the world the great lengths to which God has gone in order to save mankind.
God is the definition of goodness and love. He revealed His unchanging character and nature through scripture and eternally exists as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit- three equal, unified, and yet distinct persons.
The Bible is God's perfect and complete Word to all people at all times. In His infinite love and goodness, through it, He has given us everything we need to know about Himself and our life's purpose. Within its pages we find truth, understanding, and hope. It is divinely inspired, without error, and fully sufficient to equip God's people for every good work.
God created man and woman uniquely in His image for the primary purpose of divine fellowship, yet through our sin we have each separated ourselves from Him.
