Who We Are
Statement of Faith
We believe in one God who alone is to be worshipped, who rules the universe and through Christ created everything. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the Father: Almighty, holy, loving, the source of goodness, truth and life.
We believe in the Son, one with the Father, our Lord Jesus Christ who was sent into the world by the Father in love, conceived by the Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He was crucified for our sins and raised from the dead by the power of God. This accomplishes salvation for all who believe receiving grace by trusting in Him alone. He is the only mediator between people and the Father. He now sits at the Father’s right hand praying and advocating for His Church and will return to judge the world. Then every knee will bow before Him in honor and every person will agree that Jesus always has been, is now and always will be Lord.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, one with the Father and Son, who inspired the Scriptures, who by His grace brings new spiritual birth to all who believe in Christ. The Holy Spirit indwells every believer as a guarantee of eternal life, empowers them for holy living and loving relationships and distributes gifts for service and ministry.
We believe that human beings were created in the image of God but we were alienated from God by sin and now live in a sin damaged world. We are unable to restore relationship with God ourselves. God in His love and mercy through Jesus’ finished work restores those who believe giving them a new birth, a new identity and a new nature.
We believe God brings all his newborn children into His family, the Church. This eternal body is revealed in the local church wherever His people gather for worship, relationship, teaching and service. As the Lord and Head of the Church, Jesus Christ directs us to tell everyone about Him so that they too might follow Him and be saved to experience abundant life and from eternal judgment. One day He will come and gather all His Church to be with Him in glory forever.
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ on earth. He utilizes His Spirit to lead each individual believer and each local church in unity, in the exercise of gifts and to mobilize believers. Christ followers will be lead by Him to fight against evil, demonic powers of darkness at work in our world and in heavenly places.
We believe the Bible is inspired by God, timeless and relevant for today. Scripture reveals truth which we believe and follow. Scripture is completely trustworthy, authoritative and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction and training in righteousness.
