Fundamentals of Our Faith

We offer you our faith. We are not perfect, but we are authentic in our belief that God is at work in our city, through his Spirit and his people. Here is a brief summary of our faith and unique practices.

God, Jesus & The Holy Spirit
Our faith is firmly planted in God who is three in one—Father, Son and Holy Spirit. God created us, provides for the eternal salvation of humanity through Jesus, and acts in the world through Christians filled with God’s Spirit.
Bible
We try to practice Christianity as revealed in the New Testament. We are Christians only, but not the only Christians. We read the Bible as God’s inspired word, the reliable map for our lives that does not evolve with the shifting currents of worldly values. The Bible is a sure guide for loving people of all races and nations, for marriage (a sacred covenant for life between a man and a woman), for loving God above all, and for knowing him through his son Jesus and his Holy Spirit. The Bible is not simply an information guide but transforms our lives.
Grace
God's grace justifies us. We are all sinners and without God’s grace we are lost (Romans 3:23-24).
Baptism
We practice believer’s immersion (baptism) for the remission of sins. God alone brought salvation to people through Jesus. In baptism we are connected with the saving death, burial and resurrection of Jesus (Titus 3:4-7).
Lord's Supper
We eat the Lord’s Supper each week to remember the life Jesus offers (Acts 20:7). The bread signifies Jesus’ body and the wine signifies Jesus’ blood. We eat together to proclaim we share in His eternal life.
Worship
We worship God through pure living, reading Scripture, preaching, prayer, the Lord’s Supper and the ancient practice of acapella singing (without accompaniment).
Ministry
We practice the “Priesthood of All Believers” (1 Peter 2:4-9). Every member is a minister and has gifts (1 Corinthians 12) to share with the congregation.
Church Leadership
We believe Scripture teaches that local churches are to be led by local elders and not by a national church hierarchy.
