We are followers of Jesus Christ. We believe Jesus taught us, in his life and words, what it means to be part of the Kingdom of God. We believe he offered himself as the sacrifice for our sin, and he rose from the dead.
We accept the New Testament Gospels as accurate accounts of Jesus' life and teachings. Because Jesus held firmly to the Scriptures as the inspired Word of God, divinely authoritative and without error, so do we. We accept the Bible as the final and only infallible authority and standard of faith. We evaluate all ideas, traditions and actions according to the teaching of Scripture.
We believe that, as Scripture teaches, the God of the Bible is the one true God. We believe he created everything that exists. We believe he exists in three personally distinct ways: as Father, as Son and as Holy Spirit. We believe that, in Jesus, God became one of us so we could know him and come into relationship with him. We not only pattern our lives after Jesus, we worship him as God incarnate.
We believe the Spirit draws us to Jesus so we can experience new spiritual life through placing our faith in him. We believe God is spiritually renewing and transforming us, making us like Jesus. We believe God calls us to live lives of humble obedience to him, continual spiritual growth and maturity, and loving service to others. We believe he calls us to live out this new life in community with the church, our brothers and sisters in Christ. We believe he sends us out to tell others of his love and truth, so they also may become followers of Jesus Christ. We believe that one day Jesus will come again to bring all things to perfect renewal and completion in him.
