About the Universe:
We believe, confess and teach that God, by the power of His almighty word, created the universe out of nothing, and continually sustains all things by the power of that same word. While this world is corrupted by the sin that man brought into it, Jesus promises to one day return and restore all things to the glorious state in which God originally intended.
We believe in one God, who eternally exists in three distinct persons. The three persons of the Trinity are equal and eternally-one God.
- The Father: Creator of all things.
- The Son, Jesus Christ : Became human to suffer and die for the sins of all human beings, and to rise again in the ultimate victory over death and Satan.
- The Holy Spirit: The Lord and giver of life, who creates faith in us, through God’s Word.
We believe, confess and teach that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord, and that through faith in Him we are given the forgiveness of sins, eternal life, and salvation. There is no other way to heaven apart from Jesus, and all who die without faith in Him are eternally damned. While we were yet sinners, Jesus freely died for us.
About the Bible:
We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice. See Our Bible
We hold to the historic views of Christianity as summarized by the Westminster Confession of Faith together with the Larger and Shorter Catechisms as the best explanation of the system of doctrine taught in the Scriptures, and the fulfillment of the Great Commission in obedience to Christ’s command, and to the Lord’s Prayer and the Apostles’ Creed confessional.
About the church:
We affirm that the Church is a family of believers- made up of those who have been saved by Jesus Christ. The Church is drawn together and sustained by the gracious power of God- united as one body under Jesus Christ, our head. The Church serves our Lord by worshiping Him regularly, by teaching and confessing the doctrines He gave us, by proclaiming His Gospel of grace- our means of life, hope and salvation, and by the fellowship and care for one another, as brothers and sisters in Christ. We minister to those outside the Church, that they may hear the Gospel and receive the gifts of repentance and Faith in Jesus Christ.
In the words of John Calvin: “To those to whom He (God) is a Father, the Church must also be a mother.”
Our statements of faith do not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God speaks with final authority concerning truth, morality, and the proper conduct of mankind, is the sole and final source of all that we believe.
