Our Beliefs

The following summary of Our Beliefs are from our church's Guiding Documents. Please refer to the complete Guiding Documents and Guiding Biblical References for further study and reflection. 

The Bible

We believe . . . the Bible is the inspired, inerrant and infallible Word of God. It is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

God

We believe . . . there is one true God, eternally co-existing in three persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit—otherwise known as the Trinity.

Jesus Christ

We believe . . . Jesus Christ is the perfect, sinless, all-sufficient sacrifice and sole mediator between God and man. He lived a sinless life and died on the cross in our place to take away our sins; and rose from the dead on the third day.

Humanity

We believe . . . Man was created in God’s image and enjoyed fellowship with his Creator. In willful (sinful) rebellion against God, Man fell into sin resulting in spiritual and physical death. As a result, people are incapable of achieving a right relationship with God through their own efforts.

Salvation

We believe . . . salvation comes to us by grace, through faith in Jesus Christ, which includes forgiveness of sin, the promise of eternal life with Him and the gift of the Holy Spirit.

The Church

We believe . . .  the Church is the Body of Christ, made up of all those who have placed their faith and trust in Him.

Human Destiny

We believe . . . our hope and the hope of the world rests solely in Jesus Christ and His finished work on the cross. Through Him alone there is victory over sin and death.
