We believe a story—a true story that God has been weaving for thousands of years. The Bible tells of a perfect creation, a tragic fall, a gracious redemption, and a glorious restoration. It all points to Jesus, the Savior who draws sinners to Himself and continually changes our lives.
There is one living and true God, who created all things and rules over all things. He is infinitely powerful, loving, good, and holy.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. Fully God and fully man, he was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died on the cross, resurrected from the dead, and ascended to heaven.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and dwells within believers, regenerating their hearts and empowering them to live a transformed life.
The three persons of the Trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are distinct. Each is fully divine and eternal.
All humanity was created in the image of God. By his free choice, man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race. Now each person is by birth and action a sinner, the deserved penalty for which is death.
Salvation is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer.
The Bible is the Word of God, God’s revelation of Himself to men. It is true, authoritative and sufficient.
Christ will one day physically return. Those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ will be raised to eternal punishment. Those who trust in Jesus Christ alone will be raised to eternal reward.
