What we believe

Beliefs:                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Our core beliefs are that Jesus Christ is Lord. He was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered and died as an atonement for our sins, and resurrected in the glory of God. We believe the scriptures are truth and a guide to our lives. We also believe in eternal life after death. As Christians, we recognize two sacraments in which Christ himself participated: baptism and the Lord’s Supper (Communion).

Mission:  To make followers of Jesus Christ to transform the world.

Statement of Faith:
APOSTLE’S CREED
We believe in God, the Father Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth;

And in Jesus Christ his only Son, our Lord;
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, dead, and buried;
the third day he rose from the dead;
he ascended into heaven,
and sitteth at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
from thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic* church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.
