We believe that God existed before time, is all-powerful, and the Creator of all things. We believe that God is infinite, but we believe that God is also intimate and desires to know and be known by all people. God is not a disconnected deity, but a tangible reality that can be experienced in and through all creation.
The bible is a collection of books of different genres, written by human authors, over the course of thousands of years. It’s as mysterious as it is beautiful. It is God-inspired and a source of strength, direction, and wisdom for those who apply it to their lives. We believe that it is a story that captures God’s vision for humanity, the world he created, and the future he is inviting us into.
We believe in original human goodness. That in the beginning, God created humanity and declared them to be “good.” (Genesis 1) This does not diminish the reality of brokenness in the world (Genesis 3), but we do not believe that sin is the first word of the human story, and because of Jesus, it will not be the last word, either. We believe every human, no matter what race or gender, is created in the image of God and are equally loved and equally valued by God.
We believe Jesus Christ is the perfect revelation of God to humankind. After voluntarily coming to earth and living a sinless life, He died on the cross as the substitute for humanity’s sin. His resurrection from the grave affirms His victory over sin and death.
The Church is not an event you attend, it’s a family you belong to. It is a called-out assembly and It is a family of people in progress, who seek to practice the way of Jesus together. The Church is not an institution of conformity, but the epicenter of creativity and when the Church lives this out, it has the capacity to Change the world.
