THE BIBLE & GOD

The sole basis of our belief is the Bible, which is uniquely God-inspired, without error, and the final authority on all matters to which it speaks. The Bible teaches that there is only one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each possessing all the attributes of Deity.

GOD & MAN

God created humans to have fellowship with Him, but they defied Him by sinfully going their own way. As a result, we need God's saving grace to end our alienation from God. Salvation comes only through God's saving grace, not human effort, and must be received personally by repentance and faith in Jesus Christ and His death and resurrection.

JESUS & HIS RETURN

Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, lived a sinless life on earth and voluntarily paid for our sin by dying on the cross as our substitute. This accomplishes salvation for all who receive grace by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead, achieving victory over sin and death, and is the only mediator between us and God.


He will return to earth to end suffering and sin and restore all creation to its intended state of perfection. At that time, everyone will experience bodily resurrection and the final judgment, when all who have accepted His free gift of grace will enjoy eternal fellowship with God.

THE HOLY SPIRIT & THE CHURCH

The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ and equips believers for personal growth and service to the church. The church's role is to glorify God and make disciples. We do that by pursuing God through His word and worship, connecting disciples in small groups, and unleashing compassion on the world around us through relationships and local and global missions.
