To make disciples who are Passionately Committed to Christ.
We accomplish this by showing others how to:
The original Scriptures are God’s Word without error. Human authors were inspired by the Holy Spirit to write God’s Word. Understanding the Bible requires the work of the Holy Spirit and accurately interpreting Scripture. We believe that the historical/grammatical method of interpretation is the most accurate way to interpret Scripture. This method utilizes the historical and textual context in which a particular passage was written, and analyzes the original language in order to accurately interpret the passage.
There is only one God, but there are three persons of God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God has always and will always exist. He is the author of all creation and His character defines everything that is good and holy.
Jesus is God’s only Son. Jesus is completely God and completely human and He is the only way to eternal life with God.
God created mankind as His crowning achievement of all creation. Humanity has chosen to rebel against God (sin), which separates every person from a perfect and holy God. Every person is damaged by that sin in this life and is doomed to spend an eternity in complete separation from God.
God loved humanity too much to leave people in their rebellion. God gave His only Son to live a perfect and holy life on Earth, but then to die a substitutionary death for all mankind on the cross. Jesus’s resurrection from the grave proved that Jesus is who He said He is and He can do what He said He can do. Those who put their faith in Christ are saved from the effects of their rebellion by the grace given through Jesus.
Since Jesus is now in heaven, it is the job of His church to represent Christ through obedience and to love the world that is still in rebellion to God just as Jesus did. The church is to tell the world about the good news of Jesus and to teach people how to follow Jesus.
