Statement of Faith


STATEMENT OF FAITH

GOD
We believe that one God, existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, is the loving Creator of all that is, eternal and good, knowing all things, having all power, and desiring and inviting covenant relationship with humanity (Heb. 1:1-3; 9:14).

SCRIPTURE
We claim the complete truth, authority and relevance of every promise, provision, right and responsibility revealed in the divinely-inspired, unchanging and infallible Word of God, Godís story of love and redemption (2 Pet. 1:19-21).

JESUS CHRIST
We confess the absolute lordship and leadership of the risen Jesus Christ, who is the Son of God and God the Son, and our soon returning King (Col. 1:15-20).

SALVATION
We accept the grace of God through faith alone the finished work of Jesus on the cross as victory for eternal and abundant life, and we maintain spiritual sonship and citizenship in the present and future Kingdom of God (Eph. 2:4-9).

THE HOLY SPIRIT
We receive the abiding presence, peace and power of the Holy Spirit in every believer as sufficient and necessary for normal Christian living (Rom. 8:9-30).

HUMANITY
We celebrate the sacredness and uniqueness of every person as wonderfully created in the image of God and according to Godís sovereign will, called to lives of Christlikeness through personal holiness, honor and humility (Heb. 2:6-12).

SIN AND EVIL
We acknowledge our sin and brokenness but refute anything that seeks to deny, discourage, or destroy the life that Jesus offers to all believers (2 Cor. 4:1-18).

MINISTRY
We value the fellowship of Christian believers in loving community, gifted service, mutual encouragement and with godly leadership as representative of the presence of Christ on earth to meet the real needs of people (Acts 2:41-47).

WORSHIP
We affirm that every person is called to glorify the living God completely, freely and passionately by giving their lives in authentic relationship, their resources in responsible stewardship and their devotion in faithful discipleship (Jn. 4:23-24).
