We believe there is only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal being, and is the creator, redeemer, preserver, and ruler of the universe. He is infinite in holiness and all other perfections; He is all powerful and all knowing; and His knowledge extends to all things: past, present, and future. To Him we owe the highest affection, the greatest reverence, and the fullest obedience. God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
By Scripture alone: The Bible is the ultimate source of authority for what we believe and how we live our lives.
We believe it is the inspired written record of God’s plan of redemption for humanity and without error. Though opinions and values change, the Bible remains the supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds and religious opinions should be tried.
By Faith Alone: The gospel is the grand narrative of God's intervening love that leads to the redemption of mankind through the death, resurrection and ascension of His Son Jesus Christ. His death satisfies the demands of God’s holy justice and appeases His holy wrath. His Gospel is received by faith alone in Christ alone. It is in light of this eternal mercy that we minister and live lives that glorify Him.
By Grace Alone: We believe that God as Father reigns with providential care over His universe, His creatures, and the flow of human history according to the purposes of His grace. We believe that no one can come to the Father on their own account, and it is an act of His grace that brings us to faith in the account of His Son Jesus Christ.
God the Son
By Christ Alone: We believe that Jesus Christ was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born to the virgin Mary. We believe He was fully God, who took upon himself human form, lived without sin, and paid for our sins through His death on the cross. We believe He has risen from the grave to secure for us the hope of heaven, and that He is the only means to salvation.
God the Holy Spirit
To the Glory of God Alone: The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God. He inspired men to write the thoughts that have been preserved in the Bible. He enables us to understand truth, and He exalts Christ. He convicts us of sin, He calls us to Jesus, and He effects regeneration. He cultivates Christian character, comforts believers, and gives gifts by which we serve God and our city. He lives in every believer and is the guarantee that God will bring him or her into the fullness of the stature of Christ. We believe God has created all of us on purpose and through the Holy Spirit we live lives for the glory of God alone.
