What We Believe

We believe there is one God and that the Bible contains his message of loving truth.  We believe that this one God has eternally existed in three persons: God the Father, God the Son (Jesus), and God, the Holy Spirit.  We believe Jesus, the Son of God, entered our broken world and lived a life that reveals God to us and tells us who we are: people created by God, in the image of God, passionately loved by God, yet separated and disconnected from God because of sin.  We believe that Jesus lived a life of perfect obedience to God, suffered and died on a cross, choosing to give up his life to pay for the consequences of sin which created a way for people to be reconnected in relationship to God, as we were created to be!  We believe that God raised Jesus from the dead, bringing him to life again, defeating the power of sin and death and that Jesus returned to his Father in heaven.  We believe that because Jesus lived, died and rose again, that we can live in the hope that sin can be forgiven and because we can be forgiven, we live in the hope of eternity with God.  We believe that in order to connect with this new life and hope we need to recognize that there are issues that only God can fix, accept the claims of Jesus to be the Son of God and the only Way to this life of forgiveness, hope and transformed purposes.  We believe that God will be faithful to lead us into a new relationship with him.
