what we believe
We believe in one God who is the Creator of all things. He is all knowing and all powerful. He is unconditionally loving, relentlessly merciful, and absolutely just. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe Jesus Christ was fully human and fully God. He lived a sinless life. He died for our sins according to the scriptures. And he was raised from the dead on the third day. We believe that humankind was created in the image of God. We believe that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.
We believe unconditional love, unlimited forgiveness and undying hope are found in Jesus Christ-the one and only mediator between God and man. We believe God is beyond human reason and imagination, but He has revealed Himself through His Word. The Bible is our source of divine inspiration and timeless wisdom. We believe the Bible is inspired, authoritative and infallible. We believe the Holy Spirit of God indwells every believer.
The fruits of the Spirit are a by-product of a spirit-filled life and evidence of spiritual maturity. The gifts of the Spirit should be earnestly sought and used to serve others and glorify God.

Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’ The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself. There is no commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:30-31
