What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Core Beliefs

About the Scriptures

We believe the entire Bible is the written Word of God, the record of God’s self-revelation to humankind. The Scriptures were inspired by God to be written by human beings. We believe that the Bible is true and trustworthy, the final authority in the lives of Christ-followers and the life of the church.

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 the lost world.

About Humanity

We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him 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 the Christian Life

We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the Word of God and daily yielding to the Spirit of God, every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.

About The Church

We believe that the church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head. The members of the church are those who have been restored to a relationship with God by placing their faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of the church is to glorify God by loving God, loving our neighbors, and by making Jesus Christ known to the lost world.
