Statement of Faith

What We Believe

God
We believe God is one. God is the one holy and loving God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit eternally. God is Truth; He is holy; He is sovereign; and He is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. He is self-sufficient. God is the creator of everything seen and unseen. God created humankind, male and female, in His image. God is just and perfect. God is love, and He desires for us to know Him on a personal level. (Genesis 1, Deuteronomy 6, 1 John 4:16-21, Jeremiah 31:31-34, Psalm 99, Psalm 116)
Jesus
We believe that Jesus is God's one and only son who was both man and God. Jesus was born of a virgin and was both God and man. He came to earth to show us how to live, and we seek to follow His example in everyday life. Jesus was the perfect sacrifice who died upon a cross to pay the price for our sins and rose on the third day conquering death offering salvation to all. He is the head of the church and creator of things. (John 3:16-17, John 1:1-18, 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, Colossians 1:15-20, 1 Peter 1:13-21)
Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit was given to us at Pentecost so that God could live within us. The Holy Spirit is our guide, our nurturer, and comforter. The Holy Spirit gives us spiritual gifts to help us carry out the call God has given us and when the Holy Spirit lives within us we exhibit the fruits of the spirit. The spiritual gifts are for the common good of the church. (Acts 2, John 14:15-31, Galatians 5:16-26, 1 Corinthians 12)
Scriptures
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God and is the all-sufficient basis of doctrine and practice. The scriptures are the absolute truth that guide and direct us in our everyday lives. It is God breathed through human writers, and we are called to be obedient to what God has written for us. We believe that God inspired both the New and Old Testament. (Hebrews 5:11-6:2, Hebrews 4:12-13, 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:14-21)
