what we believe
ONE GOD. We believe in one God, eternal and loving, who reveals himself in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
HUMANKIND. We believe God created men and women to live in loving relationship with him and with one another, and that he calls us to demonstrate our love by obeying his commands. But through Adam's disobedience, the original sin, the human race became alienated from God. We all have inherited a sinful nture and live in a state of separation from God, unable to remedy our lost condition on our own.
SALVATION. We believe that Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of God's plan – since the beginning – to reconcile a lost world to himself. Through acceptance of Jesus Christ as our personal Lord and Savior, confession of our sins, repentance and commitment to a new life in Christ, we are forgiven and forever restored in loving relationship with our Creator. Salvation is achieved not by anything we do – not by our works – but by faith in Christ. It is a gift from God, made possible by Christ's work on the cross.
THE CHURCH. We believe the Church is the living body of Christ, called to carry out his mission on the earth until he comes again. We are called to a life of sacrifice, manifesting his compassion and love to all who suffer. Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and so the Church is called to spread the good news of salvation, leading people to repent and accept him as Savior and Lord, and nurturing them in their faith.
CHRIST'S RETURN. We believe that Christ is coming again. We wait and watch for the day, assured that nothing in life or in death can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
