What We Believe
We believe that God has revealed Himself & all that is necessary pertaining to life and godliness. God has made Himself known through creation (General Revelation) (Psalm 19, Romans 1) & more specifically (Special Revelation) through His Word (Hebrews 1, John 1, 2 Timothy 3:16). Due to God’s self revelation we believe that the Bible is without error and is the ultimate authority for life.
We believe that humans are born, as a result of Adam & Eve’s choice in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3), sinners. As such, we are separated from God & are, in all actuality, His enemies.
We believe that God, in His infinite sovereignty, wisdom, and grace has made a way for humans to be reconciled to Him – by having our sins paid for & receiving a righteousness that is not our own. That payment and the resulting righteousness are available because Jesus lived a perfect life, satisfying God’s righteous requirements & then gave Himself up for our sake. That great exchange, as highlighted in 2 Corinthians 5:21, is only available by grace through faith & is not something that we can earn by our own efforts (Ephesians 2:8-9).
We believe, that God has called Christ followers to be ministers of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:16-21) & that He has chosen to use the Church to spread the Good News of Jesus (Matthew 28:18-20, Romans 10, etc).
