We believe the Bible is the inspired, infallible Word of God, and it serves as our rule for faith and life.
We believe God is one God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God the Son, while remaining fully God,
took on our human nature and became one of us, though without sin.
We believe God created the heavens and the earth, and humankind was created in the image and likeness of God.
Because of Adam's sin, humankind is separated from God and unable on its own to be reconciled to God.
We believe the sacrificial death and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ has provided the only way of
reconciliation with God, which is why we call Him Savior.
We believe Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, lived a sinless life,
and now reigns at God's right hand, which is why we call him Lord.
We believe through Jesus' redemption, all of creation can be claimed and restored through the Spirit.
Therefore, we are ambassadors of Christ's Kingdom in all of society.
We believe salvation is God's free gift based upon the atoning work of Christ, and this gift is effected
by the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of people and received by faith in the Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead. The righteous - those who are
justified by faith in Christ - will inherit eternal life, and the wicked - those who remain in their
wickedness because they reject Christ - will be condemned eternally.
We believe that the local church plays the central role in the fulfillment of the Great Commission
and that the spiritual unity of believers comprises the one body of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe that people who are apart from God matter to God, and therefore matter to the church.
For this reason, it is the individual Christian's and the church's responsibility to proclaim the
Gospel in word and deed, by every means possible, through a life of holiness, service, and love.
