Full Statement of Faith
Summary Statement of Faith

We worship the one living God, our heavenly Father, who is revealed in the Bible and who is the source of all life, glory, goodness, and blessedness. The eternal Son of God uniquely entered human history in the person of Jesus of Nazareth, fully God and fully human. He is truly the Word of God - that is, the perfect culmination of God`s mind and heart, will and character - present in the intimate fellowship of the Holy Trinity fully engaged with the Father in the work of creation and redemption. The Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, is the power of God that makes faith real in our lives. The Holy Spirit illuminates God`s word, communicates His truth, convicts us of sin, enables us to repent, sanctifies us for God`s holy purposes, and anoints us for ministry and the proclamation of the Gospel. The Holy Spirit seals our faith and unites us with Christ and with the church, the Bride of Christ.

We believe the Scriptures of the Old and New Testament are God`s uniquely revealed and authoritative written word. They were inspired and interpreted by the Holy Spirit and are the church`s first and final authority in all area of faith and life for all people in every age.

We believe God created human beings good and in His own image. Humans were created to know, love, and obey God, and to be righteous stewards of creation.  However, mankind rebelled and brought sin and death upon us and all creation, 

We believe salvation is God`s gracious work through Jesus Christ to reclaim mankind and all creation from sin and its consequences. Salvation is the gift of God`s grace received by faith. The righteousness of Christ is accorded to those who believe in Him, resulting in their right standing before the Heavenly Father.

We believe Jesus Christ is Lord of every aspect of a believer`s life. Our spiritual life includes regular worship, prayer, study of the Scriptures, and fellowship with our fellow Christians. Our physical life includes our bodies, our possessions, our resources, and our money.

We believe marriage is between a man and a woman. We are to be worthy stewards of all things to manifest and extend the kingdom of God in the world, and to bring glory to Him. While our obedience in these things does not save us, when we turn to God in faith he transforms us, changes our hearts and sets us apart for his purposes.

We believe Jesus Christ, as the Lord of the church, declares its mission and equips it for work. The church`s mission is to proclaim and to teach the good news of salvation of grace through faith in Jesus Christ and to demonstrate the new reality God intends for mankind through our love for one another.
