Our Core Values

What We Believe

...about God
God is the Creator and Ruler of everyone and everything. He is one God that exists in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

...about Man
Man is made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. He is the supreme object of God's creation. Although man has tremendous potential for good, every person has become separated from God by disobedience, which the Bible calls sin.

...about Eternity
Man was created to exist forever. He will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or in union with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is Hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.

...about Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for sin by dying on the cross. He arose from the dead after three days demonstrating His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again to reign as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

...about Salvation
Salvation is a gift from God. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus as our Savior can we receive forgiveness. Jesus is the perfection required by God that we could never be. We are saved as we place our faith in Him through repentance, confession,and baptism as directed by the Bible.

...about the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son as God. He is at work in the world helping all to become aware of their need for Jesus. He also lives with every believer providing them with power for godly living, understanding spiritual truth and equipping them to serve others.

...about the Bible
The Bible, both the Old and New Testament, is God's word to all men. Human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit recorded the words of Scripture, The Bible is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. It is the authoritative guide for our lives.
