what we believe

  • We believe that the Bible is God's Word, and that it is complete, accurate, and authoritative. 
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who has always existed as God but who came to earth as a man, born of a virgin.
  • We believe that, being fully God and fully human, Jesus was the only one whose death could pay for the sins of all humanity.  When he died on the cross, Christ provided redemption from our sinful state and reconciliation with God the Father for all who will place their faith in him.
  • We believe that, just as he predicted, Jesus was raised back to life on the third day after his crucifixion, defeating death and offering eternal life to all who believe.  We believe that, following this, he ascended into heaven, where he sits at the right hand of the Father and acts as our mediator and high priest.
  • We believe that Jesus will return to judge the earth and take his followers home.
  • We believe that those who place their faith in Christ are filled with God's Holy Spirit, who enables us to live a life of communion with God and victory over sin.  The Holy Spirit guides us, teaches us, gifts us, corrects us, and empowers us to live the lives God intends us to live.
