Our Beliefs

We Are a Christian People

We join with all true believers in proclaiming the Lordship of Jesus Christ and in embracing the historic statements of Christian faith. We value our Wesleyan-Holiness heritage and believe it to be a way of understanding the faith that is true to Scripture, reason, tradition, and experience. 

We Are a Holiness People

God, who is holy, calls us to a life of holiness. We believe that the Holy Spirit seeks to fill us with His Spirit enabling us to live as God has called us. The Spirit empowers us to love God with our whole heart, soul, mind, and strength, and our neighbors as ourselves and producing in us the character of Christ.  

We Are a Missional People

We are a sent people, responding to the call of Christ to go into all the world, witnessing to the Lordship of Christ, and participating with God in the building of the Church and the extension of His kingdom (Matthew 28:19-20). Our mission (a) begins in worship, (b) ministers to the world in evangelism and compassion, (c) and encourages believers toward Christian maturity through discipleship.

 

What We Believe

We believe in one God-the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in Jesus Christ, who is fully God and fully man at the same time, who became like us to help us understand who God is and how much He loves us.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is active in the world, leading all mankind towards God.

We believe that the Bible is the Word of God, giving us all we need to know about how to become disciples of Jesus Christ, and how to live to please God.

We believe that we are all sinners by both nature and deed and we need God’s forgiveness and cleansing.

We believe that Jesus Christ died on the Cross and that, by trusting in His promises, we can be restored to a right relationship with God, which leads to eternal life.

We believe that God has enabled us to turn to Him from sin but that He has not forced us to do so.

We believe that each person must repent and turn away from their sins, in order to know the forgiveness of God.

We believe that when we turn from sin and trust in Christ, the old record of sin is wiped clean, and we are born anew, thus becoming part of the family of God.
