Our Beliefs

About God

God is the creator of all things, seen and unseen. God is eternal and honestly good, knowing all things and holding all power and majesty. God exists as the Trinity. He is three persons, yet one God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The creator of compassion, God seeks to love and be loved by us. God desperately desires a relationship with us. As we journey through life, God is constantly leading us into a relationship with him based on compassion, community and commitment.

Exodus 3:14 | Numbers 23:19 | Leviticus 11:44-45 ; 19:2 | Psalm 11:4-6 | Malachi 3:6 | John 3:16 ; 4:24 ; 5:26 ; 14:1 | Acts 17:28 | Romans 3:3-4

About Jesus Christ

God displayed himself in human form through his son, Jesus Christ. Jesus was born of the virgin, Mary, and lived a sinless life. Displaying his commitment to God and us, he died on the cross for our sins. Jesus Christ was then buried, resurrected from the dead, and ascended into heaven.

Isaiah 7:14 | Matthew 1:18-23 ; 3:17 ; 8:29 ; 14:33 ; 16:16 ;28:5-6 | Luke 22:70 ; 24:46-47 | John 1:1 ; 1:14 ; 10:30 ; 11:25-27 ; 17:1-5 | Acts 1:9 ; 2:22-24 ; 7:55-56 | Romans 1:3-4 ; 3:23-26 ; 8:1-3 ; 10:4 | 1 Corinthians 8:6 | 2 Corinthians 5:19-21 | Gal 4:4-5 | Philippians 2:5-11 | Colossians 1:15 ; 2:9 | 1 Timothy 2:5-6 ; 3:16 

About The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is sent from God to live inside all who believe in Jesus Christ. Exemplifying community, the Holy Spirit gives each follower diverse gifts, fostering unity, interdependence, productivity, Christ-like character and love among Christians. The Holy Spirit also teaches, comforts and empowers us. Genesis 1:2 | Psalm 51:11 ;139:7 | Isaiah 61:1-3 | Joel 2:28-32 | Mark 1:10 | Lk 1:35 ; 4:1 ; 11:13 ; 12:12 | John 15:26 ; 16:7-14 | Acts 1:8 ; 2:1-4 ; 13:2 | Romans 8:9-11 ; 14-16 ; 26-27 | 1 Corinthians 3:16 | Ephesians 1:13-14 | 2 Peter 1:21 | Revelation 22:17

About The Bible

We believe God speaks to us through the Bible.  The Bible is our standard in all we say and do. We believe that God’s unchangeable Biblical message ought to be presented in a relevant way portraying a real hope, to real people through a real God. It’s our desire that this message is free of religious jargon, and is understandable to our community. Deuteronomy 4:1-2 | Psalms 119:11 ; 89 ; 105 | Isaiah 40:8 | Matthew 22:29 | John 5:39 ; 16:13-15 ; 17:17 | Romans 15:4 | 2 Timothy 3:15-17 | Hebrews 1:1-2 ; 4:12 | 1 Peter 1:25 | 2 Peter 3:16
