Our Beliefs 

  • God’s Word is without error, inspired by Him, and authoritative for our lives.  It is the story of God’s redemption through Jesus and the way that this plays out through His people for His glory.
  • The Gospel is the story of the good creation of God, the sinfulness of man, God’s gracious provision of redemption, and the ultimate hope of restoration
    • God is eternal and in three persons (the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit) who are to be equally loved, honored, and adored.
    • Humanity is marked and broken by sin and in need of Redeemer. We are without hope if God does not intervene to provide salvation for us.
    • Jesus is the fully human and fully divine Son of God, promised Messiah, and only Redeemer of humanity.  He has provided for our salvation through His perfect life, sacrificial death, and resurrection.
    • Our salvation is all by grace, we can bring nothing to it nor do we contribute anything to it. Even our faith is a gracious gift of God.
  • The church is the modern day people of God.  God has one people that are set apart for Himself throughout Scripture. 
  • The purpose of the church is to fulfill God’s mission of bringing people from every tribe, tongue, and nation to Himself by making us agents of His reconciling power in the world.

Our Denomination and Confessions

 
Our church is a part of the Associate Reformed Presbyterian (ARP) denomination.  This means that our church is part of a larger group of the global church for accountability, encouragement, and connection.
 
It also means that there are certain confessions that we subscribe to because we believe they are good summaries of what the Bible teaches: The Westminster Confession of Faith and Larger and Shorter Catechisms.
