We believe in one all-powerful God, creator of all, who loves and desires a relationship with each of us. Every person is valued by God and made in God’s image, but our sin separates us from God and prevents us from leading the righteous lives God desires from us. So, God’s only son, Jesus Christ, came to Earth, died and rose again, defeating death and the power of sin to open the way for us to renew our relationship with God.

We can receive the benefits of Jesus’ death and resurrection as a gracious gift through faith, repentance, and baptism. Then, as Christians united with God and added to the body of Christ on earth, the church, we partner together to continue Jesus’ earthly ministry.

We are joined by our commitment to the Bible, by sharing in the Holy Spirit, and by the Lord’s Supper—a meal that establishes our identity as a people shaped by the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. This identity is characterized by our common journey towards Christ-likeness and by our mission to bring the entire world into a relationship with God.

Together, Christians look forward to the day when Jesus will return and reign forever as King of kings and Lord of lords.
