We are a church that believes that God works incomprehensibly through baptism and Holy Communion. We let the Holy Spirit be the one who makes us grow in holiness and makes us all more Christ-like. We are agents of change in our society through social justice, and helping others in our community.
We believe that God is the creator, lover of all that exists, both seen and unseen. God exists as the Trinity, three persons, yet one God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Matthew 28:19
We believe that Jesus was fully human and fully divine. He lived a sinless life, was crucified for the sins of all of us, buried, and rose from the dead and ascended to heaven. One day he will come again to establish His kingdom of love as ruler of all that is. 1 Corinthians 15:3-8
We believe that the Holy Spirit was sent from God to the world, and is willing to live within all who surrender to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit teaches, comforts, and empowers us for ministry in the world, and support the body of Christ through the various gifts; promoting unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ’s character, and love among Christians. John 14:26
We believe in the Bible, God speaks to us through Scripture, and our privilege is to try to understand the message of God and reasonably apply it to our lives. The Bible is our authoritative guide in all matters of faith and practice. 2 Timothy 3:14-17
We believe that salvation comes to people by the grace of God through faith in Jesus only. People receive the gift of forgiveness and spiritually are reborn through the repentance of their sins and their faith in Jesus Christ. Even though good works and a holy life do not guarantee eternal life, but are natural products of a repentant believer who demonstrates their salvation through them. Ephesians 2:1-10
We believe in the church as the community that bears the work of Christ in the world after his departure. The church is the primary agent through which Jesus continues his mission in the world and consists of all believers under the Lordship of Jesus. Acts 6:1-6
