OUR FAITH.

Here are the beliefs we hold firmly as vital to our health as a church.

JESUS

“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power.” - Hebrews 1:3a

Simply put, we believe that Jesus Christ is God Almighty, Everlasting, and Eternal.

He is the Creator of the world, revealed in the Mosaic Law and spoken of by the ancient prophets of Israel as recorded in the Old Testament.

He became a human being, being born of a virgin by the power of the Holy Spirit, as the only begotten Son of God.

He perfectly obeyed every aspect of God’s holy Law, perfectly pleasing God the Father by living as a man who never committed sin.

He performed miracles, taught the good news (gospel) of His kingdom, called many to believe, and offered His own life as a sacrifice for the sins of humanity.

Because humanity has sinned against God, He died to receive the punishment for sin on humanity’s behalf, enduring the righteous wrath of God on the cross and perfectly appeasing the Father by accepting the weight of this penalty.

He was resurrected by the power of the Holy Spirit, performing miracles and displaying Himself to many witnesses.

He ascended to heaven, where He now sits at the right hand of the Father—occupying the highest position of authority and majesty to become mankind’s perfect advocate.

Because His blood was spilled, we can be saved from the wrath of God by trusting in His finished work on the cross.

THE BIBLE

We believe the Bible both contains the Word of God and is the living Word of God.

We believe the scriptures were written through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

Though the people who wrote the scriptures were flawed, fallen human beings, we believe the words written were breathed out by God and preserved for our benefit.

We believe the Bible in totality reveals Jesus Christ as Lord, our everlasting hope.

We believe the Bible’s words are alive and constant despite changes to cultures and contexts.

We believe that to teach from the Bible informs and strengthens the Christian faith.
