What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

Our core beliefs are rooted in and guided by Scripture and Scripture alone, as we believe this is the way in which God intended to communicate with His people after Christ returned to Heaven. The summary of our beliefs could be stated by what is commonly called the "Sola's of the Protestant Reformation" that began in the early 1500's. This was an effort to return to the plain teaching of God's Word, and escape the corruption of the Roman Catholic Church at the time. While some matters of theology and church life often leave us room to disagree or interpret differently, we believe the five 'Alone' statements are accurate reflections of God's intended meaning of scripture, therefore they are the solid foundation upon which our Ministry of His Word is based. 

Points of Doctrine

There is one eternally existing God who has three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the creator of all that exists, both visible and invisible, and is therefore worthy of all glory and praise.  God is perfect in love, power, holiness, goodness, knowledge, wisdom, justice, and mercy. He is unchangeable and therefore is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

God has revealed Himself to us through His Son, Jesus Christ, who is the visible image of the invisible God, the Holy Scriptures (66-Book Canon), and through all of creation itself.

Humans, both male and female, were created in God's image for His glory. The first humans, Adam and Eve, were created without sin and appointed as caretakers of the rest of God's creations.

The Fall
When Adam and Eve chose not to obey God, they ceased to be what they were made to be and became distorted images of God. This caused them to fall out of fellowship with God and fractured all of creation since that time.

Jesus Christ came to reconcile us with God. He lived a life without sin and willingly died on the cross to pay the penalty for our transgressions. God raised Him from the dead and now, by grace, offers as a free gift eternal life to all who follow Christ, by faith, as their Lord and Savior. That is why salvation can be found in Christ alone.

The Church
The Church is meant to be the visible body of Christ, sent into the world to glorify God and proclaim the Gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ.

Jesus Christ is returning one day to judge both the living and the dead and to usher in the fullness of God's kingdom on earth.
