We believe that the Bible is God’s unique way of communicating His truth from generation to generation. While the Bible has been translated from the original languages (Greek, Aramaic, and Hebrew) into our own and also into thousands of other languages, the word of God remains authoritative in its intent to convey through words, poetry, narrative, letters, history, gospel, and apocalypse the actions of God in history and most importantly in the life, ministry, death and resurrection of God’s son, Jesus.
There is only one God, creator of heaven and earth, who exists eternally as three persons – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each fully God yet each personally distinct from the other.
This is a mystery of our faith and is understood only through prayer and spiritual discernment. All people are created in God’s image and matter deeply to Him. Central to the message of the Bible is that God loves people, and invites them to live in communion with Himself and in life-giving community with each other.
Apart from Jesus Christ, all people are spiritually lost and, because of sin, experience pain, brokenness and despair. However, God gives hope and eternal life to anyone who trusts in Jesus Christ. This cannot be earned through personal goodness or human effort. It is a gift that must be received by humble repentance and faith in Christ and His finished work on the cross. Again, this is one of the deep and subtle mysteries of the Christian faith!
Through Jesus’ life we learn best how to live our own lives – in community, trusting God, in passionate love with each other, emptying ourselves so that others might experience LIFE! Christians await expectantly for Jesus to return at the end of history as God’s plan for the world is fulfilled.
The Holy Spirit draws people to Christ. He indwells all believers and is available to empower them to lead Christ-like lives, and gives them spiritual gifts with which to serve the church and reach out to a lost and needy world.
All followers (disciples) of Jesus are members of the body of Christ, the one true church universal. Spiritual unity is to be expressed among Christians by acceptance and love of one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national, generational, gender, and denominational lines.
The local church is a FAMILY of believers who gather for worship, prayer, instruction, encouragement, mutual accountability, and community with each other. Through it, believers invest time, energy, and resources to fulfill the Great Commission — serving all people in life-giving mission
