WHAT WE BELIEVE

  • What We Believe God is bigger and better and closer than we could ever imagine.
  • The Bible is God’s perfect guidebook for living.
  • Jesus is God showing Himself to us.
  • Through his Holy Spirit, God lives in and through us.
  • Nothing in creation “just happened.” God made it all.
  • Grace – Jesus’ gift of sacrificing His life to pay for our sin – is the only way to have a relationship with God.
  • Faith is the only way to grow in our relationship with God.
  • God has allowed evil to provide us with a choice; God can bring good even out of evil events and promises victory over evil to those who choose Him.
  • Heaven and hell are real places. Death is a beginning, not the end.
  • The church is to serve people, like Jesus served people.
  • Jesus is coming again.
