Our Beliefs


We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is God’s gift of love to the world. He died on the cross, 

rose from the dead and returned to his Father in heaven in order to free us from the addictive power of sin. 


We are made to have a fulfilling, personal relationship with our Creator. However, that

relationship is broken off by our independent attempts to live life in our own way.


Fortunately, our God, motivated by unending love, never stops looking for those of us

who have wandered away. He sent his only Son, Jesus, into the world in order to search for us. 

As a result, Jesus is the only Savior able to bring us back to God.


Jesus wants to give each of us the benefits of forgiveness, hope, a clear conscience, guidance and

eternal life when we accept his gift of love through faith and offer him control over our lives. 

There is nothing we can do to earn or to improve upon God’s free gift of salvation.


In order to make this new life a practical reality, God fills each of his children with the gift of his

own Holy Spirit. As we actively depend upon God’s Spirit to direct us in life’s decisions, 

He progressively heals our brokenness, making us whole and healthy.


One of the visible expressions of God’s new life is always seen in His children’s developing

desire and ability to build loving community relationships with one another.


One day Jesus is returning to this world in order to judge all evil and to share everything

he has with all of his people in a perfect world.


There is one God who exists eternally as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We learn these lessons from the Bible, the truthful Word of God that teaches us

how to honestly know both our Father and ourselves.
