What We Believe

The Gospel changes everything.

We believe that the Gospel,
the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ,
fundamentally changes every facet of our lives.

Read below about the sacraments we partake in and the doctrine we believe.



In baptism, God claims us as His own. We believe that baptism, of both infants and adults, is the expression of God’s active reach into our lives and a sign and seal of His grace. To learn more about baptism, please reach out to our office to be in touch with a pastor.


Communion, also known as the Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper, is truly that: communion with God. When we partake in the bread and wine of Communion, we are not only remembering Christ’s body pierced for us and blood spilled for us, but we are acknowledging that we only share in His Resurrection if we share in His death. Communion is open to all who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord. We encourage families to discern when they feel that their children are ready to partake.



Genesis 1:26, 2 Corinthians 13:14
We believe in the one God, revealed in Scripture, eternally existing as one essence in three distinct Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


Genesis 1:27
We believe that all men and women, from conception until one’s very last breath, are created in the image of God and are of intrinsic value and worth.


2 Timothy 3:16
We believe that the Bible is not only written through the direct inspiration of God, but is also God’s revelation of Himself to humanity. Through the 39 books of the Old Testament and the 27 books of the New Testament, God details His creation of all things, the Fall of humankind, and the life, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, which is the hope of the world. We believe that the Bible is without error or fault in all that it teaches and is God’s primary mode of communication to us all.


Romans 7
We believe that all people are equally sinful in their disobedience of God and are equally in need of those sins to be forgiven.


Romans 8
We believe that Jesus was God in human flesh, whose death on the cross atoned for the sins of the world. Salvation, an eternity spent in the loving, joyous presence of God Himself, is granted to any who believe that on the third day after Jesus died, He rose from the dead and subsequently ascended to Heaven.


Matthew 28:19, Acts 2
We believe that the Christian Church is the body of Christ, made up by His people around the world. Regardless of geography, language, or culture, to believe in Jesus is to belong to His people, the Church.


Hebrews 9:28
We believe that, just as Jesus Christ came into the world once, so He will come again. When He does, He will judge the living and the dead and make all things right.
