What we believe

We believe the basics of the faith as taught by all Christian churches, namely:

•  God is Triune: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

•  God created the world, made it good, and continues to care for it.

•  Because of human sin, the Father sent the Son to bring forgiveness and eternal life.

•  Jesus, the eternal Son of God, was born of a virgin, died on the cross as a sacrifice of atonement, rose from the dead to defeat death, now rules creation, and will someday return.

•  God the Holy Spirit now works among us, revealing the truth, convicting of sin, and empowering God's people to share the good news about Jesus. 

•  God wants all humanity to find salvation and eternal life by believing the good news of Jesus. 

•  We know all of this because of the Bible, which is God's inspired and true message to us.

•  And then, along with all Protestants, we also believe that we are saved by grace through faith, not by works, and that Christ alone is our Savior.
