Our Beliefs

The God who created us loves us more than we can comprehend.

There is only one God, the God of the Bible.

This God reveals his existence to us in nature. He reveals his character and his will to us in the Bible. The Bible is God-inspired and therefore without error, completely trustworthy and the absolute truth.

The Bible contains two main teachings, the law and the gospel. The law exposes our sin and the condemnation we deserve because of sin. Sin is every imperfection in our lives.

The gospel, which means good news, displays the forgiving love of God the Father. It explains how God has transferred our sin to his Son, Jesus, and has transferred the perfect record of Jesus' life to us.

The gospel explains how Jesus suffered the punishment our sins deserved when he died on the cross. His resurrection from the dead on Easter is the guarantee all our sin are forgiven and Jesus’ Father is our father.

God the Holy Spirit works to convince us that this is true. He leads us to understand that we cannot rescue ourselves from the punishment we deserve by the good we think we can do. God the Son, who became human being in Jesus of Nazareth, must do the rescuing.

God communicates with us through the Bible and in the Sacraments, Baptism and the Lord's Supper. These are his means of getting in touch with us and of staying in touch with us.

God establishes a connection between us and himself when he leads us to a faith that trusts that his Son has won his mercy and forgiveness for us.

In view of God's love and forgiveness, we seek to show gratitude to God and to show God’s love and consideration to the people in our lives. 

Staying connected to God’s Word empowers Christians to face the challenges of life and guides them to the blessings God provides. Consequently, regular worship and Bible study are essential to our spiritual health. In addition, they are ways to let God know how much he is worth to us.

Gratitude for Christ inspires us to conform our thinking to God's will for our lives. It also motivates Christians to support, care for, and stand by the members of their congregation.
