What We Believe

 

 

God
We believe in one God, existing and expressed in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - the perfect expression of community. Being created in God’s image, we are created for relationship-with God and others. 

 

Jesus
We believe Jesus is the Son of God-fully God, fully human.  Through His life, death on the cross and resurrection, He gives life, hope and love to whoever turns from their former life and receives Him.  We believe that the grace, forgiveness and power of a personal relationship with Jesus transforms a person's life with new-found purpose, meaning and habits.

 

Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit makes it possible to know and experience God in a real way-through teaching, encouraging, convicting, empowering and being with us.

 

The Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us, revealing who God is, how to be in a relationship with God, and how to live our lives in a way that honors God’s ways of life.  We trust in the Bible's authority in and relevance to everyday life.

 

Relationship with God Through Jesus
We are accepted (saved) by God, now and for eternity, not because of anything we have done, but through the love and forgiveness of Jesus, demonstrated by dying on the cross.  This relationship is a gift (grace) that we receive through trust (faith) and repentance (turning away from our former ways).


 
Mission & Ministry
God's Spirit gives us each unique gifts through which we joyfully serve God and take part in God's mission of drawing people to Him and restoring a broken world. 

 

The Church
As Christ followers, we are called to be a unique community that practices and reflects the love and ways of God. Christ's Church is bigger than one denomination or group, made up of all who affirm Jesus as Lord and Savior.
