What We Believe
There is one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each distinct from the other.
Jesus is true God and true man, conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary. As the willing sacrifice for our sins, He died on the cross. He rose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of God the Father, serving as our advocate. Someday He will return to fulfill God’s eternal plan.
Apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost because of sin. Death seals our eternal destiny. Salvation cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. However, God gives salvation and eternal life through the sacrificial work of Jesus Christ. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross.
The Holy Spirit convicts the world of sin and draws people to Christ. He dwells in all believers, empowering them to live Christ-like lives. He calls and enables Christians to reach out to a lost and needy world.
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the inspired Word of God and the final authority for Christian faith and life. No other writings are vested with such divine authority.
All people are created in God’s image and matter deeply to Him. Central to the message of the Bible is that God loves people, and invites them to live in communion with Himself and in community with each other.
