I believe in God, the Creator and Sustainer of everything seen and unseen. I believe God is eternally triune, one God in three distinct but equal persons: Father, Son, Holy Spirit.
I believe Jesus is the Son of God. I believe He came to Earth as fully God and fully man, was born of the virgin Mary, lived a perfectly sinless life, fulfilled the law and the prophecies, died on the cross and was buried, three days later rose from the dead, appeared to many people, and then ascended into heaven where He now sits at the right hand of the Father and intercedes for His followers.
I believe in the Holy Spirit. I believe He dwells in every believer, is at work sanctifying every believer, and is growing love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control in every believer as He gives power to persevere through life.
I believe Scripture is the Word of God and ultimate truth, revealing who God is and His plan of redemption. I believe that Truth is where freedom is found.
I believe all people are created in the image of God.
I believe sin entered the world through the first man and woman, Adam and Eve, and severed our relationship with God.
I believe the only way back to God is through the completed work of Jesus Christ and belief in that gospel. I believe salvation is by God's grace and comes through hearing the gospel, choosing to turn from sin, and choosing to trust in God.
I believe God desires all to accept His gracious gift of salvation, but I believe it is a choice to either accept it and spend a glorious eternity with Him or reject it and spend eternity separated from Him.
I believe all believers make up the Church. I believe the Church is the Bride of Christ. I believe Jesus will come again to redeem His Bride and restore all things. I believe the local church exists for community, encouragement, and engagement in the culture for the mission of Christ.
I believe all believers are called to share the gospel and have a responsibility to address the urgent spiritual and physical needs of the world.
I believe God is good and faithful in every season.
I believe God works all things for His glory and our good.
I believe God is a God of miracles and of redemption. I believe God makes beauty from ashes and brings renewal from rubble. I believe He redeems, restores, and rescues.
I believe in grace and in hope, in joy and in love.
