We lovingly invite people into a relationship with Jesus Christ, equip them with a faith in Him that works in real life, and send them into the world for service in Jesus’ name.
Encouraging people of all ages and backgrounds to nurture an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ through our focus on relationships, creative arts, youth programming, small groups, and community engagement.
The God of the Bible is the only true God, infinite in power, wisdom and goodness. God reveals himself as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, three equal, distinct but inseparable persons.
The Father is the creator, ruler and sustainer of all things. God is infinite in power, wisdom, justice, goodness and love. He has provided the means by which people may enjoy a relationship with him and freedom, with all of creation, from evil.
Jesus Christ is truly God and truly man, the perfect and inseparable union of the divine and human natures. He is the Son of God made flesh, born of the Virgin Mary by the power of the Holy Spirit. For those who believe, Jesus’ sinless life, suffering, death, resurrection and ascension provide the only way to the Father. Now he intercedes for us before the Father, awaiting the day when he will return to judge every person and to hold every person accountable.
The Holy Spirit is equal with the Father and Son as God. He is present in the world to make people aware of sin, righteousness and judgment. He leads people through faithful response to the gospel, and lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He empowers the Church to carry out Christ’s mission in the world, enables believers to live a fruitful Christian life, and endows each believer with spiritual gifts according to His will. He guides the faithful into all truth, which is always in harmony with the truth given in the Scriptures.
The Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is the only written Word of God. Inspired by God, the Bible was written by human authors under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the primary resource for knowing God’s will, salvation, and Christian growth. It is the guide and final authority for faith and conduct of individuals and the teaching and purpose of the church.
God made people in his image and they are the supreme object of God’s creation. Only through the work of God can people be saved from the corruption of sin and restored to the relationships, which God has intended for us.
God offers people forgiveness through Jesus Christ’s death on the cross, the perfect sacrifice for sins of the whole world. Forgiveness cannot be earned through good works, self-improvement, or religious ceremony. It is a gift for all people who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness. As a result, they are:
- Forgiven of their sins,
- Declared right in God’s sight,
- Made a new person by the Holy Spirit, and
- Adopted into the family of God.
These benefits are known as salvation, and this salvation is complete and secure upon the return of Jesus Christ.
