Basic Beliefs

 

  • We believe in the triune God, consisting of Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).

 

  • We believe that the Bible is the authoritative guide for Christian faith and living, and truly reveals God's purpose in the world: to free us from sin through faith in Jesus Christ.

 

  • Each person is free to explore and interpret the Scriptures according to his or her own experience and to express one's worship within a covenant community of other Christians, the church.

 

  • We strive for unity of all Christians in the love of Christ. Doctrines and human differences should not be allowed to divide believers from each other.

 

  • We believe in public confession of faith in Christ and repenting of sins, and acceptance of Jesus into our lives.

 

  • We observe the Lord's Supper every Sunday and baptize by immersion. Those practices are based on a sincere desire to follow Jesus and the apostolic examples found in the New Testament.

 

  • We practice inclusive ministry in the life and work of the church. All members are "ministers" -- entitled to interpret the Scriptures and perform church functions.
