GOD'S LOVE STORY FOR US

Nobody’s “love story” can be confined to a handful of principles; how much less can we confine the love story of God for us? God has a story, and so do you.

BASIC BELIEFS

We believe what historic Christianity has believed for the last 2000 years.

We believe in one God, manifest in three Persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit

We believe in justification by faith in Christ and His saving work

We believe in the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit

We believe in the authority of the Bible as inerrant God’s Word

We regularly recite the historic Apostle’s Creed written in the 4th century as well as one we call the Gospel Confession which articulates the gospel and its benefits.

THEOLOGICAL DISTINCTIVES

In areas that have been debated by Christians, we believe.

We Believe in congregational government by elders who are leaders doing the work of the ministry, not simply policymakers (Acts 20:28; 1 Tim. 5:17).

We Believe that man and woman were each created in the image of God to reflect His glory through their masculinity and femininity, respectively. This has ramifications for relationships in the home and in the church (Gen. 1:27; 2:18; Eph. 5:22-33; 1 Tim. 2:12-15).

We Believe in the perpetuity of all the spiritual gifts (1 Cor. 1:7; 13:8-12; Eph. 4:11-13).

We Believe in believer’s baptism by immersion (Acts 8:38).

We Believe that the filling of the Holy Spirit is the repeatable empowering of the believer by the Holy Spirit to give prophetic testimony to Jesus (Acts 4:8, 31).

We Believe in the real presence in Communion (1 Corinthians 10:16) 

We do not have an exhaustive doctrinal statement because we believe everyone should have freedom to believe what seems right to him or her in nonessential areas.
