As a non-denominational church, in essential beliefs we have unity; in non-essential beliefs we have liberty.
OUR ESSENTIAL BELIEFS
We affirm the Apostles' Creed:
I [We] believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
I [We] believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son,
He was conceived by the power
of the Holy Spirit
and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven,
and is seated at the right hand of the
He will come again to judge the living and
I [We] believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy world-wide Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
Doctrine of God
We believe in one God eternally existing as one divine essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Doctrine of Christ
We believe Jesus Christ is God the Son whose death for our sins and resurrection secure salvation for all who believe in Him.
Doctrine of the Holy Spirit
We believe the Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity, co-equal with God the Father and God the Son.
Doctrine of Revelation
We believe God has made Himself known to the world in Jesus Christ, the Scriptures, and creation.
Doctrine of Scripture
We believe the Bible is the infallible and inerrant Word of God. To say the Bible is ‘infallible’ means that its authors are neither misleading nor being misled. To say the Bible is ‘inerrant’ means that it does not assert any errors in the truths it espouses.
Doctrine of Creation and Providence
We believe that God created the world from nothing and governs all things at all times in all places.
Doctrine of Humanity
We believe that all humanity is created in the image of God and possesses intrinsic dignity and worth.
Doctrine of Sin
We define sin as willful rebellion against God. We believe sin has fractured all things, leaving the entire world in desperate need of salvation.
Doctrine of Salvation
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
Doctrine of the Church
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, united in His blood, and sent into the world to spread His gospel.
Doctrine of Resurrection and Consummation of the Kingdom of God
We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world in the future and that He is bringing heaven with Him to create a New Heavens and a New Earth.
