Our Core Beliefs
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that men were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of scripture.
We believe in One God who exists in three distinct persons; The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ is the second member in the trinity(the Son of God) who became flesh to reveal God to humanity and to become the savior to the lost world.
We believe that all people were created in the image of God to have fellowship with him, but became alienated in that relationship through sinful disobedience. As a result, people are incapable of regaining a right relationship with God through their own efforts.
We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. Therefore, God freely offers salvation to those who place their faith in the death and resurrection of Christ as sufficient payment for their sin.
We believe all Christians should live for Christ and not for themselves. By obedience to the word of God and daily yielding to the spirit of God. Every believer should mature and be conformed to the image of Christ.
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ, of which Jesus is the head. We believe in the local Church and that its members are those who have trusted by faith the finished work of Christ. The purpose of the Church is to glorify God by loving him and making him known to the lost world.
The Gospel
The first two chapters of the Bible (Genesis 1 & 2) show us what life was supposed to be.  The last two chapters in the Bible (Revelation 21 & 22) show us what life will be again.  Everything in between is the story of God sending His son, Jesus, to come and restore us back to the life He created us for.  This story of restoration is about the living God. For His glory, God created this world good and peaceful and offered us the opportunity of unbroken fellowship with Himself. However, as Genesis 3 tells us, things went wrong. Through one man’s disobedience, we fell from this incredible state of fellowship. Sin entered our hearts, and with that sin, the world became twisted and fractured.
The harmony and peace that creation once enjoyed was now damaged and broken by sin. Since that time, God has patiently and purposefully continued the story of redemption. God sent His only Son, Jesus, who came and lived a perfect, sinless life and offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sin on the cross. Jesus endured God’s wrath on behalf of sin. In a dark and horrendous moment of suffering and death, peace and beauty and hope burst forth as Christ rose three days later from the grave. What was once broken God restored through His Son. Through Christ we have been offered restoration and reconciliation. God takes that which is broken and makes it new. God’s offer to us is a new life, the life we were created for.  We urge you to explore this story further, and we pray that you to might be woven into this incredible narrative of restoration.
