Our Core Beliefs:


1. About the Bible

We believe God inspired the writing and protected the transmissional process of the Scriptures, both in the Old and New Testaments, to equip humankind to honor and obey God in every area of life.  As such, Scripture, interpreted in context, will be our only source for what we believe, what we do, and how we act toward others.  

2. About God

We believe there is one true God who is eternally self-existent and the Creator of all things.  God is beyond human understanding and imagination and has revealed Himself through His Word. God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present. He is unconditionally loving, relentlessly merciful, and absolutely just.  He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

3. About Jesus Christ

We believe Jesus Christ was fully human and fully God.  Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died a substitutionary death on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, and is at the right hand of God interceding for his people.

4. About Humanity 

We believe that humankind is created in the image of God. As such, we were designed to be representatives for God on the earth. However, we believe that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and need to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ. We believe that unconditional love, unlimited forgiveness, and undying hope are found in Jesus Christ - the one and only mediator between God and man.

5. About the Holy Spirit 

We believe the Spirit of God indwells every believer. The fruit of the Spirit is the by-product of a spirit-filled life and evidence of spiritual maturity. The gifts of the Spirit should be earnestly sought and used to serve others, edify the church, and glorify God. We believe every Christian, empowered by the Holy Spirit, will be an effective witness for God throughout the world.
