What We Believe
 
God
We believe in the one true and living God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son,
and the Holy Spirit.  We believe that He is holy and worthy of our worship.
 
Man
We believe that humanity was created to have fellowship with God, that fellowship has been broken (due to our sin). 
No matter what we try to do, no matter how "good" we try to be, we cannot restore that fellowship on our own.
 
Salvation
We believe that salvation comes through faith alone in the work of Jesus Christ on the cross and His resurrection. 
All those who surrender themselves in faith to the sacrifice of Jesus are justified by the grace of God based
on the sacrifice of Jesus.  We believe that as believers grow, their salvation becomes evident in their lifestyles.
 
Scriptures
We believe that the writings of the Old and New Testaments are the holy and inspired Word of God.  We believe
that the Word is the standard for our lives as it reveals what it means to live a God-honoring, Christ-like life.
 
The Church
We believe that the church is the redeemed people of God.  We believe that the church is a body and functions
best when all the parts work together in unity.  The glory of God is its goal and love is its motivation.
 
Our Mission
We believe our mission as believers, both individually and as a body, is to advance God's kingdom for His glory. 
We believe that this occurs through the empowering of the Holy Spirit for God's people to live transformed lives that
seek to love and serve others in the name of Jesus.  We believe that it is the calling of all believers to invest themselves
in the expansion of God's kingdom both in their local communities and across the world.
