What We Believe

Articles of Faith:  These things we believe

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, inerrant Word of God from which we learn and believe that there is One God, eternally existing in three Persons (Father, Son and Holy Spirit). We believe that God created man in His own image, but that man chose to disobey, causing a separation between God and man due to sin. We believe that God loved and cared for mankind, even though fallen and rebellious. In order to save, we believe that the eternal Son of God became Son of Man through the virgin birth and was tempted in all points as we are yet without sin. We believe that He offered Himself on the cross paying for our debt and rose again. We believe that a person can be saved by faith, trusting that Christ died for our sins and rose again from the dead. We believe Jesus is preparing a place for all who trust in Him and that He is in the process of preparing us for that place with Him. We look forward to Him coming to take us home.

Because we believe these things we are called

We are called to build relationships with those around us, demonstrating the difference that Jesus makes in our lives and inviting them to consider the claims of Christ on their lives. We understand that it is both a privilege and a responsibility to represent Jesus Christ to our friends, neighbors and relatives.
