There are fundamental and essential tenets contained in the Bible which we hold as foundational for our Church. Because we are interdenominational, we desire to allow for freedom of conviction on non-essential doctrinal matters, provided that any interpretation and teaching is based on the Bible alone. We believe, further, that on non-essential matters, our members should not attempt to impose their interpretations on others who may understand these matters differently. The essential tenets we hold as a Church are:
The sole basis of our beliefs is the Holy Bible, God's infallible word, inerrant (in the original manuscripts), written by humans inspired by the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters on which it speaks. (Romans 15:4; Romans 16:25-27; 2 Timothy 3:14-17 and 2 Peter 1:19-21)
We believe that there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit - each of whom possess equally all the attributes of Deity and the characteristics of personality.
a. God the Father
We believe in God the Father, the creator of all things, an infinite, personal spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power and love. We believe that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of His children, He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ. (Genesis 1:1; John 3:16-17 and John 4:24)
b. God the Son
We believe in Jesus Christ, God's only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, sinless life, miracles, and teachings. We believe that through His death, burial and resurrection He fulfilled prophecy, atoned for the sins of mankind and established His divine church so that all who trust in Him may receive redemption and salvation. (Matthew 1:18; John 1:1-14; John 3:16-18 and Philippians 2:5-11)
c. God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the Holy Spirit who came forth from the Father and the Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness and judgment. It is His work to indwell, sanctify, empower for service and seal until redemption all who believe in Jesus Christ. We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Christ and that He is an abiding helper, teacher and guide. (John 4:24; John 14:16-17 and John 16:7-11)
The Human Race and Salvation
We believe that humans were created good and upright, but fell from divine favor by willful disobedience. Salvation is offered freely to all who believe in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice at the cross and acknowledge their need for Him as savior. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in, and obedience to, Jesus Christ as Lord (Genesis 1:26-31; Romans 3:21-26; Titus 2:11-14; 3:2-7 and Ephesians 2:8-9).
The New Testament speaks of the church as the Body of Christ, which includes the redeemed of all ages, believers from every tribe, language, people and nation. We believe in the acceptance of all Christians through love for one another across ethnic, cultural, socio-economic, national origin, generational, gender and denominational lines (Matthew 16:18 and 28:18-20; John 14:12; Ephesians 1:22-23 and 4:11-16; 1 Corinthians 3:9-11 and 12:12-30 and Colossians 1:18).
We believe in the Scriptural ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper as instituted by our Lord and Savior (Matthew 3:13 and 28:18-20; Acts 2:38; Mark 14:22-25; John 46:48-56 and 1 Corinthians 11:23-25).
We believe that Christians are called to a holy life of service and testimony based on Scripture and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We believe, as taught in the Holy Scriptures, that we are to proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ in faithful response to God's will and purposes; to serve the community of which this church family is a part; to work cooperatively with Christians in other communions; to seek the oneness of the body of Christ; and to make known the love of God and saving grace through faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 1:8 and 1 Peter 1:13-16).
We believe that according to Scripture, marriage is a lifelong, exclusive union, ordained by God, between one man and one woman and has the great divine purpose of illustrating the Gospel of Jesus Christ (Ex. 20:14, 17; Matt. 19:4-6, 9; I Cor. 6:15-17; Eph. 5:21-33; Heb. 13:4). The Bible teaches that any sexual activity outside of this Biblical definition of marriage constitutes sexual immorality. The Bible speaks directly against sexual immorality and admonishes Christians to flee from it because of its destructive effects. (I Cor. 6:18-20; I Tim. 1:8-11)
Final Judgment and Eternity
The present age of human history will culminate in the return of Jesus Christ. Those who die in sinful rebellion against God will be assigned to eternal punishment while believers will be received into God's loving presence to be with Him throughout eternity (John 14:1-3; Romans 2:2-16; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17 and Revelation 19:11-16).
