Our Beliefs

 



 

Jesus is our Center

Jesus is our shared treasure, the destination and path of our pilgrimage. Our spirituality is the one he forged in communion with the Father through the Holy Spirit. Jesus offers intimacy with God to all people and we are eager to make safe spaces for this to occur. We believe that all of life is spiritual, and that our brokenness can be restored and made whole through Him. We celebrate God's presence, love, and truth, pursuing lives of faith, hope, gratitude, and worship. God invites everyone everywhere into this way of life, and we believe it is the best possible way to live.     top

 

The Gospel is our message

We embrace the salvation Jesus offers as the hope for the healing of our relationships with God, each other, ourselves, and creation. Our spirituality is active because Jesus is in the process of restoring the world at all levels by bringing his kingdom to earth through his body, the church. We seek to effectively express and communicate the message of Jesus in word and deed. Led by the Spirit of God, we are passionate about relieving suffering and fighting injustice, joining the God of the oppressed in living out the transforming message of the risen Jesus. Jesus calls his church to be a compelling force for good in the world. We were created to live for something larger than ourselves.     top

 

The Bible is our book

We believe the Bible to be a living Word, comprised of the God-breathed voices of many who have come before us, and trustworthy for revealing God and His ways. Our spirituality is biblical because the Bible is the story of Jesus, our Father and His will for us. We are determined to preach, speak, and live according to the words of His Book the Bible. Everything we say, everything we do will be based upon what God’s Word says about that subject or activity! We are a Word Church and His Word will guide us in all we endeavor to do and be.    top

 

Love is our aim

The fundamental revelation of God in Jesus is love, because everything about God is relational. Our spirituality is communal because Jesus called us to love each other and the whole church, which we honor in all its varied expressions, locally and globally. The way of Jesus cannot be lived alone. We value the image of God in all people, everywhere. We believe that we were created to live deeply with one another, carrying each other’s burdens, sharing our possessions, to pray for and confess our sins to each other, to suffer and celebrate together. It’s in these honest, loving relationships with one another that God transforms us and truth becomes a reality.     top
