CORE BELIEFS

There is a God. We know Him as the Creator of the world and the One who made us. He deeply loves and cares for us and created us so that He might enjoy a relationship with us. God is perfect and although we are made in His image we are separated from Him because in our humanity, we are far from perfection. To bring us back to Him, He sent His Son to the world to live here with us. His Son's name is Jesus. 

Jesus lived a perfect life in relationship to God on earth and then He died a terrible death. The death that Jesus endured was actually the punishment that we deserve. Three days later, though, Jesus rose from the dead! He was alive again! Jesus paid our debt; He took our place, suffered our punishment, and now, through Him, we can be in a right relationship with God. By believing in Jesus and recognizing Him as the Savior and Lord in our lives, we can accept the gift God offers of eternal life. 


After accepting this gift, we become followers of Jesus. We follow the example Jesus set in being baptized and we regularly take communion. These practices, set up by God, help us remember Him and identify ourselves as followers of Jesus Christ, along with the steps we take in obeying His commands for our lives and the example He has set for us. 


We know all of this because it is the truth found in the Bible. The Bible is God's Word to people that teaches us how we can live in a right relationship with God and others and can participate in His purposes in the world. It is true and useful for all of us. We can read in the Bible the story of the life of Jesus and His sacrifice for us. We believe that being in relationship with Jesus is the most important decision you can ever make.
