What We Believe
Centrality of the Word of God
We believe in the effective power of the Bible to change lives with dynamic, life-giving and life-shaping power and truth.
Necessity of the New Birth
New birth is necessary for a right relationship with God. It is the will of God that all should be redeemed (2 Peter 3:9), yet it is only through Christ that we can be saved (John 14:6). We share God’s concern for the salvation of all, but accept God’s Word that only those converted to Christ shall be saved (Acts 4:12).
Church as a Fellowship of Believers
The church is a group of believers, characterized by mutual participation and sharing of the new life in Christ. Worship is central in maintaining the quality and vitality of that new life. It is a gathered community set apart for involvement in Christ’s mission to the world.
Conscious Dependence on the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity. The Spirit is the prevenient actor in the drama of salvation, the creator of hunger for Christ’s life, and the fulfiller of that hunger. He is the indweller of every Christian, and the creator of the likeness of Christ in individual believers.
Freedom in Christ
Freedom is a gift of God in Christ to all who believe by delivering us from the power of sin to condemn, control, and destroy. It empowers us to serve God’s will through our lives, in and to the world.
Committment to the Whole Mission of the Church
We follow Christ’s two central calls: the Great Commandment and the Great Commission.
