We believe that God is Trinity, that is, three distinct persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) existing eternally of one nature (God). We believe God is loving, gracious, and merciful, inviting all into an eternal relationship with Him. Jesus, the only Son of the Father, is both divine and human, who for our salvation was born, died, resurrected, ascended, and shall return again. The Holy Spirit is God, sent from the Father and Son, to indwell believers as a mark of our salvation and to gift and unite us in one body, the church.
Salvation is through faith alone in Christ alone. There is no other name than Jesus by which we are saved. We believe God's grace leads us to repentance and faith, whereby which we confess our sins and ask forgiveness and believe that Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Salvation is not just a future promise, but a present reality as well. We can experience even today the ever increasing fruits of God's kingdom as we abide in Him.
The church was instituted by Christ, of which He is the head and chief cornerstone, and given life by the Spirit. All the redeemed in Christ are united in one body, the church, by the Spirit. It is the hope of the world and an embassy of God's kingdom. Believers are gifted by the Spirit to be in ministry and mission within their community. There are two sacraments instituted by Christ: Baptism and the Lord's Supper. Through Baptism we receive a measure of God's grace that identifies the believer within the community of faith. It is the first step in being identified with Christ and His church. Through the Lord's Supper we receive grace to grow in the likeness of Christ and pursue a life of holiness and righteousness.
We believe the Bible is the inspired, authoritative Word of God, containing all things necessary for our salvation. We confess as canonical thirty nine books of the Old Testament and twenty seven books of the New Testament. Holy Scripture is the primary means by which we can know God and understand His will and purpose for our lives. Daily Scripture reading and Bible study are both important disciplines in faith development.
And now, just as you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord, you must continue to follow him. Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness.
