Our mission and our desire as a body of believers can be summed up in the following three statements.
Sharing the Gospel
As a congregation, we desire to grow closer to God by the study and application of His word, through prayer, and through worship. We desire to help each other grow in our faith through various acts of service towards one another. Finally, we desire to share the glorious gospel of God to those who do not yet know Him as Lord and Savior.
What We Believe
God is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. He has revealed Himself to us in three Personalities; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Each Personality of the Trinity is completely God and shares the same nature and attributes. God the Father is perfect in holiness, wisdom power and love. By grace, He saves from destruction the spiritual death of all those who come to Him through repentance of sin and faith in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the Son. He is both fully God and fully human. He came to earth and shared in our humanity to reconcile us to God by living a sinless life and becoming the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by His death on the cross. His death satisfied God's justice and made possible for all who believe in Him to be freed from the penalty of sin and made acceptable to God on the grounds of His sin-payment. Having died on the cross, Christ rose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven. He will return again to consummate history and the eternal plan of God, according to His promise.
The Holy Spirit was sent from God to apply to us the saving work of Christ: to enlighten our minds and make us aware of our need of a savior and to regenerate and permanently indwell each believer, becoming the source of assurance, knowledge, power, and wisdom for godly living. The Holy Spirit gives each believer spiritual gifts for the strengthening and proper functioning of the church. He also guides believers in their understanding and application of Scripture and truth.
The Bible is God's Word to us. It is written by human authors who were supernaturally guided by the Holy Spirit. Although the authors were not infallible because what they wrote was inspired of God we believe the Old and New Testament original writings are without error. The Bible is complete as a revelation of God's will for salvation and is the final authority for Christian faith and living.
People were created to exist forever. At the end of time, all people will be resurrected and will stand before God to be judged for what they have done in this life. While those who did not receive God's forgiveness and acceptance will be condemned to eternal separation from God, those who have been reconciled to God through faith will rejoice together in eternal communion with Him.
