what we believe
Jesus is EVERYTHING
As Christians, we are called to lift Jesus high in all we say and do.
friends, not fears
Too few Christians know their neighbors of other faiths, and too few of our neighbors know a Christian. Yet, we are called to be the face of Christ in our communities.
Truth, in love
We are about real friendship with neighbors of all faiths. We do not shrink from genuinely living out our faith. Nor do we ask others to be anything other than themselves to be our friends.
God. God eternally exists in three persons: the Father, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was true God and true man, existing in one person and without sin. He rose from the dead, and ascended into heaven. All who receive the Lord Jesus Christ by faith are born again of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
Witness. In his "great commandment" (Matt 22:36-40) Jesus calls his followers to love all people, and in his "great commission" to share the good news of salvation with them (Matt 28:16-20).
Scripture. God has revealed Himself and His truth in the Scriptures, and supremely in Jesus Christ. The Old and New Testaments are verbally inspired by God and inerrant in the original writing. They are trustworthy and of supreme authority.
Salvation. Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures, triumphing over all evil; and that all who believe in Him are justified by His shed blood and forgiven of all their sins.
Sin. All have sinned by rebelling against God’s revealed will and thereby incurred both physical and spiritual death, and that as a result all human beings are born with a sinful nature that leads them to sin.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of the just and unjust, the everlasting punishment of the lost, and the everlasting blessedness of the saved.
