What We Believe

The Bible

We believe in the God-breathed truthfulness and authority of the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments that train us up to be faithful disciples engaged in effective ministry through the love of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Here we find our identity as God’s loved creation, and our purpose to love God, love ourselves, and love our neighbor well. (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:20-21; Matthew 22:36-40)

The Trinity

We believe in One True God who mysteriously exists as three equal and divine persons in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. In this eternal and forever-existing God is perfect life, perfect love, and the source of all creation. (Matthew 28:19-20; John 1:1-14)

God the Father

We believe in the eternal God the Father Who, although has full authority over His creation, is supremely all-knowing and all-powerful, is also fully loving and desires to have a personal relationship with each of us as His adopted children. (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3; John 1:12-13)

God the Son

We believe in Jesus Christ, fully and perfectly God Who chose to come to the world as a perfect human being, being born of the virgin Mary to live a sinless life, die on the cross, rise from the dead, so that His people would be fully forgiven of their sins and brought into a whole relationship with God. Only through believing Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth and Life can we, too, have eternal life. (John 14:6-12; John 14:19; 2 Corinthians 5:19)

God the Holy Spirit

We believe in God the Holy Spirit Who comforts, teaches, convinces the world of sin, leads people to respond in faith to the Gospel message, and is the source of God’s power. After being promised from Jesus, the Holy Spirit came in a new and mighty way on the day of Pentecost to fill Christians with the power of God. (Acts 2; John 16:7-11; Romans 8)

The Church

We believe the Church is the people of God from all different backgrounds, cultures, and life experiences who are united in being the Body of Jesus Christ, fully embracing and believing in Him as their only Lord and Savior. We believe the Church is called to live as daily disciples engaged in selfless and effective ministry, preaching the gospel, extending God’s love and grace, and making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world according to the command of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12-27; Matthew 28:16-20)
