What we believe:


We believe there is only one true God who is eternal, all-powerful, all-knowing, just and loving. We believe that God purposefully created the world and is personally engaged in the lives of human beings.


We believe that every person is uniquely created in the image of God but, through sinful disobedience, is broken and alienated themselves from God, others, and the creation. The result is that every person is in need of healing and reconciliation.

Jesus Christ:

We believe that God entered the world in human form in the person of Jesus Christ; Jesus Christ is both fully human and completely God. Jesus alone reconciled us with God, revealed God’s character, and inaugurated God’s Kingdom.


We believe that through faith in Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection our sinful disobedience is forgiven and that through repentance and surrender to God we are reconciled to Him for this life and eternity.

Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s indwelling presence: the source of power, guidance, and conviction in the life of a follower of Christ.


We believe the Church is the Body of Christ on Earth and is the universal community of all Christ-followers. The Church finds its best expression in unique, local communities of Christ-followers united for the purpose of spreading the values of the Kingdom of God in the world.


We believe that the Bible was written by human authors under the supernatural inspiration of God and is our authority for all matters of faith and practice.
