About Us:

Our Beliefs & Doctrines

As Christians, we believe the following:


About God


We believe God will comfort, guide, and forgive every person, no matter who they are or what they’ve done. He does this through reconciliation with humans as the Trinity: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As the Father, God is the sovereign creator and ruler of the universe. Through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, who was both man and God’s Son, and without sin, humans are offered freely the gift of salvation and eternal life. After receiving salvation, the Holy Spirit is a “Counselor” and “Helper” in our faith journey.

 

About the Word of God


We share the conviction that Scripture is the primary source and criterion for Christian doctrine. Through Scripture, the living Christ meets us in the experience of redeeming grace. We are convinced that Jesus Christ is the living Word of God in our midst whom we trust in life and death.

 

About the Church


Our Church is made up of people who share faith in Jesus Christ. We, like many other Protestant denominations, affirm our beliefs through the sacred symbols of baptism and communion.

 

The Apostles’ Creed, an affirmation of faith, which we recite each Sunday, is a guide for our faith’s essentials.


I believe in God the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;
And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord:
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day He rose from the dead;

He ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.


Amen
