What We Believe

God is a self-revealer, existing eternally in the three persons of the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

God created the world of nothing, and has made us in his image, that we might have fellowship with him.

God, who discloses himself through his creation, has spoken in the words and events of redemptive history. This history is fulfilled in Jesus Christ, the incarnate word, who is made known to us by the Holy Spirit in sacred Scripture.

Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and humanity. Jesus Christ our Lord, God’s eternal Son,was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, full shared and fulfilled our humanity in a life of perfect obedience. By his death on a cross he died for our sins, removing our guilt and reconciling us to God. Having redeemed us from sin, on the third day he rose bodily from the grave, victorious over death and the powers of evil. He ascended into heaven where, at God’s right hand, he intercedes for us and rules as Lord over all.

The Holy Spirit, through the proclamation of the Gospel, renews our hearts, persuading us to repent of our sins and confess Jesus as Lord.

Scripture is an essential part and trustworthy record of God self-disclosure. We believe the Hebrew (Old Testament) and New Testament scriptures are divinely inspirited and are the rule of faith and practice for the church.

The church is commanded by Jesus Christ to offer worship to God, preach the gospel, administer the sacraments, make disciples, work for social justice, and strive against the works of evil whereever it is found.

We believe God’s redemptive purpose will be fulfilled someday by the return of Christ and He will establish his glorious kingdom. Then shall the eager expectation of creation be fulfilled and the whole earth shall proclaim the glory of God who makes all things new.

We are determined to keep human’s words from ever becoming our rule of faith or practice by always giving primacy to Scripture. Scripture is the standard by which all other words are judged.
