About Us

Beliefs

As a member church of the Presbyterian Church in America, we subscribe to the Westminster Confession of Faith. Below is a very abbreviated statement of our core beliefs:

1) The Bible is God's Word. It reveals His immeasurable love for us and how simply to live in His grace. (2 Tim.3:16)

2) There is only one God, in three persons: the Father, Son & Holy Spirit. (Dt.6:4; Mt.28:19)

3) All humans are broken and cannot save themselves. We need a Savior. (Rom.3:10-12)

4) Jesus Christ, the God-man, lived the life we could not, died the death we deserved, and won new life for us in His resurrection from the grave. (2 Cor.5:21)

5) The cross tells us two things: a) I deserve that death. b) He was willing to die for me. In other words, I'm worse off than I dared to imagine, but... at the very same time, I am more loved than I ever dared to hope. (Rom.5:8)

6) Since we can't save ourselves, salvation is God's work alone. (Eph.2:8-9)

7) The Holy Spirit lives in God's people and leads them more & more toward Christ. (Jn.16:13; 1 Cor.3:15)

8) Everything we do is to be done for God's glory. (1 Cor.10:31)

9) God is faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families & communities according to His promises. (Dt.29:29; Ex.20:4-6)

10) Jesus will return to receive His people to Himself. (Acts 1:11)
