Where you’re welcome to BELONG before you BELIEVE. . . and you won’t BELIEVE who you’ll BECOME!

 The Holy Scriptures

We believe that the Bible was written by people under the guidance of God’s Holy Spirit and we affirm that it is what it says it is: authoritative, inspired, illumined by the Spirit and useful for teaching, correcting, and wisdom [Psalm 119:105-112; John 16:12-14; 17:17; 2 Timothy 3:16-17]

Creator God

We believe in the one true Creator God who reveals Himself through a loving, communal, sacrificial relationship of oneness displayed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. [Genesis 1; Matthew 3:16–17; Mark 1:10–11; Luke 1:35, 3:22; John 1:32; Hebrews 9:14; Acts 7:55; Romans 8]

Creation – Fall – Redemption

We believe that God created all things good and all people in His image for relationship with Himself, one another, creation, and ourselves. [Genesis 1-2; 1 Timothy 4:4]

We believe the rebellion of people against God broke our relationship with God and continues to perpetuate sin, death, brokenness, and destruction in our world. [Genesis 3:15; Romans 5:12; Colossians 1:21]

We believe God has not abandoned creation, but instead, in love, sent to earth God’s one and only Son, Jesus, fully God and fully human, born of a virgin and without sin, to redeem all creation. [Matthew 1:28-55; John 1; John 3:16-17; Romans 8:19-25; Colossians 1:15-20]

The Kingdom of God

We believe that Jesus came proclaiming the arrival of the Kingdom of God—a reality marked by love, grace, peace, and joy. Through His life, death, and resurrection, Jesus defeated sin and death, inaugurating a new creation that offers all people eternal LIFE now. Jesus is the only way to access this free gift of grace, renewed peace, and reconciliation with God. [John 1:29; Romans 3:22-26; 5:1-9; Mark 4:26; Romans 14:17; 1 Corinthians 4:20; 2 Corinthians 5:17; Hebrews 1:1-3; Revelation 21:5]

We believe Jesus Christ sends the Holy Spirit to dwell in the hearts of all believers, empowering us with gifts.  The Spirit convicts, guides, comforts, counsels, and leads us into truth through a communal life of worship and a missional expression of our faith. [John 14:26; 20:21-23; Ephesians 1:17-19; Acts 1:8]

We believe Jesus calls people to be his disciples in all areas of life, exhibiting our faith in Him by social and personal practices, which brings glory to God’s name. [Matthew 5:14-16; 22:36-40; Colossians 3:17; 1 Peter 4:11-12; 2 Peter 3:18]

The Church

We believe the Church is rooted and grounded in Jesus Christ, practicing spiritual disciplines, and celebrating baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The Church is the local and global community of Jesus followers who proclaim [through word and action] the good news of forgiveness, restoration, and reconciliation for all, living the Kingdom LIFE now. [Matthew 22:36-40; 28:19-20; John 20:21-23; 2 Corinthians 5:16-21]

The Restoration of All Things

We believe Jesus will return to judge the world, bringing an end to injustice and restoring all things to God’s original intent.  God will reclaim this world as His own and rule forever.  Our relationships with God, others, creation, and ourselves will be whole.  All will flourish as God intends.  This is what we long for.  This is what we hope for. [Isaiah 11:1-9; Isaiah 65:19-25; Matthew 19:28; Acts 3:21; Colossians 1:19-20; 2 Peter 3:13; Revelation 21]
