What We Believe

+ We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.

+ We believe in and worship the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

+ We believe that, though human beings were created to know, enjoy and reflect the glory of God, the fall has deeply broken all aspects of our humanity. Therefore, all are sinners and are totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.

+ We believe that salvation is accomplished by God alone as He graciously chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is not based on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith, but on His grace alone.

+ We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.

+ We believe that Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead after being buried for three days and that He now reigns over all things at His Father’s right hand. He is now at work through the church to extend His Kingdom of grace and righteousness in the world.

+ We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the power and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.

+ We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.

+ We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

+ We believe that because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is grace and truth, it demands all of our allegiance, our affection and our action.
