Our Mission: To connect people with Jesus and each other.
We Believe: the Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments, are the inspired Word of God without error in the original writings, the complete revelation of His will for the salvation of people, and the divine and final authority for all Christian faith & life.
There is one God, Creator of all things, infinitely perfect & eternally existing in three persons Father, Son & Holy Spirit.
Jesus Christ is true God and true man, having been conceived of the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins according to the Scriptures. Further, He arose bodily from the dead and ascended into heaven, where, at the right hand of the Majesty on High, He is now our High Priest and Advocate.
The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, grant faith to the unbeliever, and during this age to convict people of sin; regenerate the repentant sinner; and dwell within, guide, instruct, and empower the believer for godly living and service.
Humans were created in the image of God but fell into sin and are therefore lost. Only through regeneration by the Holy Spirit can salvation and eternal life be obtained.
The shed blood of Jesus Christ and His resurrection provide the only ground for the justification and salvation for all who believe, and only such as receive Jesus Christ by faith are born of the Holy Spirit and thus become the children of God.
The Holy Spirit works today through God’s Word and the Church to lead people to repentance and deliver His grace. The Holy Spirit leads people to baptism and to holy communion to receive God’s amazing grace and become Christ’s disciples.
The personal and imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ is our “blessed hope” and has a vital bearing on the personal life and service of the believer.
There will be a bodily resurrection of all the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, and the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting, conscious punishment.
The true Church is composed of all such persons, who, through saving faith in Jesus Christ, have been regenerated by the Holy Spirit and are united together in the body of Christ of which He is the Head.
The chief goal, objective, and motivation for every Christian is to glorify God, and help others come to saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.
