SUMMARY OF BELIEFS
We believe that the answers to life's questions are found in God's Word, the Bible. The Bible is our only infallible rule for faith and behavior. We believe the Bible is God-breathed, authoritative, and without error in the original manuscripts.
We believe that God has eternally existed in three Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We also believe that the second Person of the Trinity became man, was born of the virgin Mary, lived a perfect life, died on the cross, rose again, and ascended into heaven, where he now reigns at the Father's right hand, awaiting the day when he will return and judge the earth in righteousness.
The Bible teaches that Adam and Eve were created in the image of God, but rebelled against God by breaking His law. Because Adam represented the whole of the human race, each of us is sinful and guilty from birth. As a consequence, our relationship with God and other human beings is broken.
God is a just and holy God who cannot let sin go unpunished. However, because he is also loving and gracious, God chose to send His Son, Jesus Christ, to suffer the punishment due our sin.
By turning from your sins and placing your trust in Jesus, you can be justified - that is, forgiven and counted as righteous by God - not because of what you do for God, but because of what he has done for you on the cross. The moment you put your faith in Jesus, the Holy Spirit fills you and empowers you to live a new kind of life - a life of real joy, meaning, and purpose.
