We believe that the Bible was uniquely God inspired without error and is the final authority on all matters of what we believe, teach, confess and how we live as Christians. It teaches us that there is only one triune God who has revealed Himself as three persons in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
We believe that God the Father is creator of the universe and maker of everything in Heaven and on Earth.
We believe that Jesus Christ is God’s perfect Son, who through His birth from the Virgin Mary lived a sinless life on earth 2,000 years ago. He voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross for us. His death gained salvation for all who receive it as a gift by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only Mediator between God and us. He will return to Earth to conclude all things and reign forever.
We believe that the Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ, creates faith in our hearts and equips believers for personal growth and service to God.
We believe that God created humans to have a relationship with Him. We also believe that we need His saving grace, which is offered to everyone and received by faith in Jesus Christ.
