WE BELIEVE there is only one God, who exists eternally as a Trinity of three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Each member of the trinity is fully God, yet each is personally distinct from the other.

WE BELIEVE the Bible (both Old and New Testaments) is the Word of God, written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write down exactly what God wanted to communicate to us.

WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ (second person of the Trinity) was crucified and died on the cross, was resurrected from the dead, and ascended to heaven.  Someday, he will return to Earth to conclude history and fulfill God’s plan.

WE BELIEVE the Holy Spirit (third person of the Trinity) comes to live within a person once they cross the line of faith.  He gives us power to live as God wants us to live, and gives us spiritual gifts to serve the church and change the world.

WE BELIEVE men and women were created by God to live in relationship with him.  But the first two humans, Adam and Eve, chose to rebel against God, bringing sin into the world.  Sin spread like a virus to all humans, separating us from God.

WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ died on the cross to pay for our sins.  It is only through faith in Jesus Christ – not by being a good person or doing good deeds – that a person can be restored to a right relationship with God.

WE BELIEVE the kingdom of God, through Jesus, is available for ordinary human beings to live in, right here, right now!
