We Believe as Christians…

  1. We believe in one God revealed in three persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
  2. We believe in God the Father as the creator of heaven and earth.
  3. We believe that humanity is bent toward sinning and therefore falls short of God’s glory. To put it bluntly…we all sin. But out of God’s great love for us while we were yet sinners,
  4. God sent his only Son, Jesus Christ, to come to earth to live, to teach, to heal, to offer hope, who died and rose again so that we might have life in Him.
  5. Jesus is the perfect example of God’s love.
  6. Through His teaching and example we can come to know a bit of who God is and how we might live in Christ.
  7. He is the way, the truth, and the life.
  8. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the counselor, and the advocate who sustains us in times of trouble an nudges us to rise to our greater selves.
  9. Jesus promised that we would never be alone, and that promise is fulfilled in the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives today.
  10. We believe that scripture is the inspired word of God as found in both the Old and New Testaments.
  11. The Bible contains all that is necessary for us to find salvation through Jesus Christ.
  12. We believe that God calls each of us to live in unity: One body, one mind, one spirit of Christ.
