Our Beliefs

Our beliefs are best presented in the words of the Apostles' Creed;

 

"I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth;

 

And in Jesus Christ His only Son our Lord; Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost; Born of the Virgin Mary; Suffered under Pontius Pilate; Was crucified, dead, and buried; He descended into hell; The third day He rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven; And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence He shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

 

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy catholic Church; The Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body; And the Life everlasting.  Amen."

 

Our mission:  Proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ.  Forgiven and freed by God in Jesus Christ we commit ourselves to nurturing our faith through prayer and study. We endeavor to share and teach our faith to others so believers may be equipped to reach out to the community and the world so that: the lost may be found, people in need may be saved, and the lonely be enfolded into community, all being done to the glory of God.  In short, "To know Christ and make Christ known."

Our vision:  Remaining faithful to Jesus Christ with the in-errant Word of God, the Holy Bible, as our guide, we will continue the process of making Disciples of Christ seeking those who do not know Him.
