What Do We Believe?

We believe in one eternal God (Father, Son, Holy Spirit), Creator and Ruler of all. Therefore, we will submit, as individuals and as a community, to God’s authority in all aspects of our lives.

We believe God created everything in perfect harmony, but humanity’s sin brought discord into the world and has broken our relationship with God. Therefore, we know we are sinful and fall short of God’s original design.

We believe God the Father is love, is just, and pursues a restored relationship with all people. Therefore, we will love, pursue justice and seek reconciliation.

We believe Jesus, God’s Son, through his life, death and resurrection provides forgiveness of our sins and restores people to the Father. Therefore, with grateful hearts, we will follow Jesus and share this good news with the world.

We believe the Holy Spirit points people to Jesus, empowering His followers to participate in God’s restoring work. Therefore, we will live courageous lives of surrender and dependence on the Holy Spirit’s power to transform lives and communities.

We believe the Bible, the true and reliable Word of God, reveals who God is, who we are, and His plan for life together. Therefore, we will study, teach and obey God’s Word.

We believe the church is a diverse community gathered by God and empowered by the Holy Spirit to live like Jesus, loving God and loving others. Therefore, we will be a multicultural, multigenerational community worshipping God and serving others.

We believe worship is the heart-felt response of God’s people to who He is and what He has done. Therefore, we will give Him praise in all circumstances and live lives that honor Him in all we say and do.

We believe prayer is an intimate and powerful encounter with God, in which we talk about all things, humbly yielding to His will. Therefore, we will pray regularly and often about all things.
