What We Believe

We Believe...


All things exist for the glory of God.

There is only one true God, creator of heaven and earth, who eternally exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the true, authoritative, and sufficient word of God.

All people, excluding Jesus himself, are sinners by nature and choice. Though we were created to love, glorify, worship, and enjoy God, our sin has cut us off from relationship with him and the just result is spiritual and physical death.

Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin and is both fully God and fully human. He lived the totally perfect life that we fail to live, and he died the death that we deserve as a sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for our sin.

Jesus Christ rose physically from death, he ascended into heaven, and will one day return to judge the living and the dead.

Only through faith in the person and work of Jesus Christ—that his sacrifice alone is sufficient to cover your sin and shame—can a person be reconciled with God, gain freedom from sin, obtain eternal life, and experience full life and joy.
