WHAT DO WE BELIEVE?

We don't have all the answers.  Questions about faith and God's Word are never easy.  And within our congregation there is a wide variety of ideas and beliefs.  However, we do hold to these foundational truths, which guide us in our lives and in our ministries:

1) We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired Word of God and is to be our only guide in faith and practice.  (II Timothy 3:16-17)

 2) We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  (Matthew 28:19, II Corinthians 13:14)

 3) We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, and sinless life  (Matthew 1:22-23; John 14:6-11;  II Corinthians 5:21)

 4) We believe that Christ died for our sins, arose from the dead and is coming again.  (Romans 5:6-8;  I Corinthians 15:3-4;  Acts 1:11)

 5) We believe that all people are sinners and are lost apart from Jesus Christ.  (Romans 3:23;  Romans 6:23)

 6) We believe that salvation and eternal life are available to anyone through Jesus Christ.  (John 3:16-18;  John 1:12;  Ephesians 2:8-9)

 7) We believe in a living ministry of evangelism and discipleship conducted in Christian love.  (Matthew 28:19-20;  I Corinthians 13)
