What We Believe
Who Is Jesus?
Jesus Christ is God’s perfect Son, who through His birth from the Virgin Mary lived a sinless life on earth 2,000 years ago. He voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross for us. His death gained salvation for all who receive it as a gift by trusting in Him alone. He rose from the dead and is the only Mediator between God and us. He will return to Earth to conclude all things and reign forever.
Who is the Father?
God the Father is creator of the universe and maker of everything in Heaven and on Earth.
Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit draws sinners to Christ, creates faith in our hearts and equips believers for personal growth and service to God.
How do we learn about Jesus, the Father and the Holy Spirit?
God gave us His word in the Bible. We believe it to be the true inspired account of His plan for us. We are called to study His Word and apply the lessons we learn in our lives.
Why do we celebrate Holy Communion?
On the night before Jesus died on the cross, He shared the last supper with His disciples. This experience that happened many years ago, leads us to celebrate Holy Communion. Jesus invited us to share this gift until He returns, so that we may have forgiveness of sins, strengthening of faith, and the power to live God-pleasing lives.
God’s Word tells us that when we receive Communion, we are not merely receiving bread and wine, but the body and blood of Jesus Christ. Those who are Baptized and recognize Jesus’ presence in the sacrament are welcome at his table.
We ask that children experience our First Communion Classes before taking communion.
If you have questions about Communion we encourage you to talk with one of our pastors.
Jesus Transforms Lives
We acknowledge that we do not bring about any kind of transformation on our own; rather, it is all a work of God. When Jesus lives in us, He changes us from the inside out, forever. He places in our hearts the desire to know Him, love Him, and reach the world with His message of saving love. We are joining Him in His great work in the world, not venturing out on our own, so we look to the wisdom and power of God to start, sustain, and bring to fruition all that we do.
We understand that transformation never ends. From a person just beginning their journey with God to someone who has been sharing life with God for a long time, we are all in a never-ending, always growing relationship with God and others. There is always more to learn and experience, and that excites us.
