What We Belive
We believe that Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, became man, without ceasing to be God. He died on a cross for our sins so that we may have a way to spend eternity with Him.
We believe everyone is a sinner and in need of a Savior. Jesus took the penalty of our sins upon Himself and His finished work on the cross has enough power to save anyone who believes. We believe once you have accepted Him, nothing or no one can separate you from Him.
We do not believe that baptism has saving power, as saving power rests in Christ alone. However, we do believe that baptism is an ordinance that all believers should follow in, and that it is a public declaration of their faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe the Church exists to love people and reach the world with the Gospel. Our Church is full of beautifully broken people who are loved deeply by God, and strive to push each other to be more like Christ.
We believe the Bible is the inspired Word of God that He chose to supernaturally write through man. The Bible is our ultimate guide for what we believe and do.
