What we believe about Jesus, the Bible, and the role of the Church

Our Beliefs


Jesus Christ is at the center of everything. We believe that Jesus is the only one who can reconcile us to God. He lived a sinless and exemplary life, died on the cross in our place, and rose again to prove His victory and empower us for life. We believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again as He promised.


We believe in one eternal God who is the Creator of all things. He exists in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. He is totally loving and completely holy.

The bible

We believe that the Bible is God’s Word. It is accurate, authoritative, and applicable to our everyday lives.


We believe that sin has separated each of us from God and His purpose for our lives.


We believe that in order to receive forgiveness and a fresh start with God, we must repent of our sins, believe in Jesus, and commit to His will for our lives.


We believe in the power and significance of the Church and the necessity of believers to meet regularly together.

The holy spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is present and active in the Church, doing the work of drawing us to Salvation, imparting to us the Spirit of Christ, and empowering Believers to perform the mission of the Church by giving us the Gifts of the Spirit to be used for God's Glory.
