Our Beliefs

Our Beliefs

We Believe that God loves us; that God loves and lives in passionate pursuit of the whole world, including you. God is the ruler of our lives, and that binds us together in powerful relationships with each other, with Christ Jesus, and with you!

We Believe that God calls us to be disciples. Jesus told those who walked with him after his death and resurrection, to go make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. You will find us to be a people who place a high value on teaching and baptizing. Our goal is to be all that God has in mind for his people.

We Believe that we encounter God in our worship. God is enthroned upon the praise of his People (Psalm 22:3). We gather to encourage each other, to love one another, and to glorify God who reigns.

We Believe there is One God, eternally existing as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We Believe that the Bible is God’s inspired Word and is therefore our guide in faith, in practice of life and worship.

We Believe that the gospel is epitomized in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. Jesus died for sins, once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring us to God ( 1 Peter 3:18). We are saved by our faith in the work of Jesus on the cross. This is God’s plan of salvation.

We Believe that the church is made up of those people who choose by faith to give their whole lives to God, allowing God to rule their lives. We believe that this covenant commitment is declared by repentance, by confession, and in baptism (which is immersion).

We Believe that the church is the temple of the Holy Spirit of God and that each baptized Christian is a vessel of that Holy Spirit of God.

We Believe that God is enthroned in heaven, ruling the cosmos. When Judgment Day comes, Christ will come and draw all things to a close. Everyone will be required to stand before the judgment seat of Christ and given an account of the deeds done in the body. Those who walk in faith and faithfulness will be received into the happiness of the Lord.

We are not a part of any denominational structure.
