CHURCH

We believe the Church is the living body of Christ on earth with Jesus as its head and source of life. This body is composed of men, women, and children who have confessed in a personal faith in Jesus and serve as co-laborers on mission with God to make disciples throughout the world. As a people living in God’s Kingdom, we live as reconciled and unified people across gender, racial, ethnic, and class differences.

THE HOLY SPIRIT

We believe every follower of Jesus receives the Holy Spirit upon salvation to guide, comfort, convict, and adopt us into the family of God, transforming us into Christlikeness. Furthermore, we believe that we should enthusiastically expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father—the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With this baptism comes the empowerment for life, service and mission, including the spiritual gifts that reveal God’s Kingdom reality to a hurting world.

SALVATION

We believe that humanity’s only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus, the Son of God, on the Cross. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the resurrected Jesus.

ONE TRUE GOD

We believe in the one true God who has revealed himself as the Creator of heaven and earth and the Redeemer of all of creation and humankind, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
