Our Beliefs

We welcome all who desire to worship Jesus with us. As we come together for worship, discipleship and community, here are a set of beliefs that form the essence of our faith and practice.

Scripture

We believe the Scripture, both Old and New Testaments, to be the inspired Word of God, without error in the original autographs, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of all people, the divine and final authority for the Christian life and faith.

Godhead

We believe in the triune God, one substance, eternally existing in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God the father

We believe in God the Father, Creator of all things visible and invisible, who is true holiness, all powerful, infinite love and absolute truth.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity and humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, atoning death, bodily resurrection and ascension. We eagerly await His bodily return.

Holy Spirit

We believe that all people are created in the image of God. Through the fall of Adam and Eve, we were separated from God. We remain in that state until the moment of regeneration by the Holy Spirit. Only through the work of the Holy Spirit can this eternal life be received.

Salvation

We believe that God, in His great love for all people provided the ultimate sacrifice for sin in His Son, Jesus Christ. Only through His shed blood and resurrection are there any grounds for justification and reconciliation to God. Salvation is, therefore, received as a free gift by faith.

In essential beliefs -- We have unity

There is one body and one spirit…one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all… (Ephesians 4:4-6)

In non-essential beliefs -- We have liberty

Accept him whose faith is weak; without passing judgement on disputable matters…Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To his own master he stands or falls…So then each of us will give an account of himself to God…So whatever you believe about these things keep them between yourself and God. (Romans 14: 1, 4, 12, 22)

In all our beliefs -- We show Clarity

"And hold in my mind not only all human knowledge but the very secrets of God, and if I have the absolute faith which can move mountains – but have no love, I amount to nothing at all." (I Corinthians 13:2)
