We believe in the full deity and humanity of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died on a cross as the substitutionary atonement for sin, rose bodily from the dead, ascended to heaven and one day will physically return to earth in power and glory.
We believe God created human beings, male and female, in his own image. Men and women are sinful at birth but enjoy equal access to God by faith in Jesus Christ. Human beings exist to bring glory to God. Men and women are called to significant engagement in family, church, and civic life.
We believe the church is the body of Christ on earth. The church is distinguished by her gospel message, her ordinances, her great mission, and, above all, by her love for God, for one another, and for the world.
The gospel is the good news that while we were sinners, God sent his son Jesus to live, die, and be raised in our place. It is the good news that God accomplished our salvation in the finished work of Jesus Christ.
We believe that baptism and the Lord's Supper are ordained by Jesus himself. The former is a public confession of repentance and faith in Christ, and the latter is a symbolic remembrance of the atoning death of Jesus.
