What We Believe


We value a personal relationship with Jesus Christ our savior and Lord, Biblical truth, authenticity, generosity, servanthood, acceptance, worship, prayer, those who do not know Jesus and those who do, and a dependency on the Holy Spirit.



Our Statement of Faith

GOD

is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He exists eternally in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

There is one God in three persons.

JESUS CHRIST

is the son of God who lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return to earth again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

is equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is present in the world to make us aware of our need for Jesus Christ. He lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation and provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. We seek to live under his control daily.

THE BIBLE

is God’s Word to all people, written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit.

It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living.

MANKIND

is made in the spiritual image of God to be like him in character. People are the supreme object of God’s creation. Although people have tremendous potential for good, they are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called sin. This attitude separates people from God.

SALVATION

is by grace, through faith. It is a gift from God to all people. We can never make up for our sins by self-improvement or good works. We are saved from sin’s penalty by trusting in Jesus Christ and his sacrifice as God’s offer of forgiveness. We show our faith publicly through baptism.

ETERNITY

is how long we were created to exist with God. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with him is heaven. Heaven and hell are places of eternal existence.

THE CHURCH

is the body of Christ on earth. It exists to communicate the good news of new life in Jesus Christ to the world, to teach his followers to obey his teachings, and to equip his followers for ministry. The church is made up of those who have placed their faith in Christ.

Resting in and Trusting God

Resting in and Trusting God

By Anna Fuqua |

I'm in a study of the book Elijah by Priscilla Schirer. I've been in church my whole life and I know Elijah's story - he's the guy that poured water all over the sacrifice to God and God burnt it all and the Baal worshipers - nada. But, what …

At a Crossroads

At a Crossroads

By Rev. Clint Reiff |

The body of Christ finds itself at a crossroads. The common reaction to crossroads is to look to the right and to the left, but this is no ordinary crossroads. We are living in a unique time, a time where people stand frozen in their uncertainty. They look right and …

Truth in the Flesh

Truth in the Flesh

By Rev. Clint Reiff |

Postmodern philosophers, for the most part, do not believe is absolute truth, but believe that truth is always contingent on historical and social contexts and therefore cannot be absolute or universal.

Truth is at best partial and uncertain, they say.

Paul Karl Feyerabend said “The only absolute truth is that …
