We affirm the historic creeds and confessions of the Christian faith including the Apostles’ and the Nicene Creeds. Our faith, consistent with the broader Protestant tradition, is expressed with an evangelical assent. The following indicates elements of the faith we consider essential:
We believe in one holy, sovereign God, eternally existent in three persons, who is Lord of all, and worthy of all praise and honor.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, who was crucified, buried, and raised on the third day, triumphing over death for our sake. He ascended to the right hand of the Father, where he makes intercession for the saints.
We believe in the testimony of the apostles, whom Jesus sent to testify of him to all nations.
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who empowers the church for its witness to the apostles’ testimony. The Spirit indwells the believer for sanctification, and equips the believer for service to God.
We believe that God has called all to accept the gift of redemption offered through the Son, and that all are called to live a holy life. All are called to good works, but salvation is by grace, and not by human merit or work.
