What We Believe


Commitment to Jesus Christ:  We believe that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone Who is the only begotten Son of the Living God.  Through Him, all who come to Him by faith and repent their sins, receive forgiveness through Christ’s death on the Cross and live in newness of life through the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.  This new life of faith is to be marked by a joyful obedience to Jesus Christ, to God’s Word and to the leading of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 16:15-16; Ephesians 2:4-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21; Galatians 5:22-25).

Authority of Scripture:  We believe that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments in their entirety are God’s Word, and is the standard by which we are to order our lives, express our faith and function as a community (2 Timothy 3:16-17).

Worship:  We are committed to worship in Word and Sacrament, through the power of the Holy Spirit.  Our worship—in glorifying God—is to be authentic to our cultural setting while remaining true to our ancient tradition (John 4:23-24; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26; Acts 17:22-24).

Ministry:  We will create a welcoming community that will encourage attendees to bring their friends, no matter where they stand with God (Matthew 9:12-13; Luke 15; 1 Timothy 4:1-5).

Sacrificial Giving:  We believe that we are to be generous with our time, talents, and money as we share with those in need, support the work of God among us, and spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 12; 1 Corinthians 12-13).

Expectant Prayer:   We believe that nothing of significance happens in God’s kingdom in the absence of prayer.  Therefore, we seek to make prayer a priority—inviting God to lead, restore, heal and transform our lives, our churches, our communities and the world (John 14:15-31; Luke 11:1-13).
