Live the Life Designed for You
We describe God in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The threefold nature of God is also expressed as Creator, Redeemer, and Sustainer.
We believe in one God, who created the world and all that is in it.
We believe that God is sovereign, that is, God is the ruler of the universe.
We believe that God is loving. We can experience God's love and grace.
We believe that Jesus was human. He lived as a man and died when he was crucified.
We believe that Jesus is divine. He is the Son of God.
We believe that God raised Jesus from the dead and that the risen Christ lives today.
We believe that Jesus is our Savior. In Christ we receive abundant life and forgiveness of sins.
We believe that Jesus is our Lord and that we are called to pattern our lives after his.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God with us.
We believe that the Holy Spirit comforts us when we are in need and convicts us when we stray from God.
We believe that the Holy Spirit awakens us to God's will and empowers us to live obediently.
Our Worship Celebration is Sunday at 10:30 a.m.
