We believe God created the world and continues to watch over it. We trust in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, as our only Savior, and we depend on the Holy Spirit to guide and empower us in our lives.

We believe Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for our sin and arose victoriously from the dead. The purpose of Christ’s victory was that we may have abundant life – “life in all its fullness” (John 10:10).  We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and guides us in our faith and lives.

We believe God takes special joy in working through the words and deeds of the church in reaching out in love to all the world.

We believe that through committing ourselves in faith to the risen Jesus Christ we receive forgiveness of our sins and strength and purpose for daily life. We look forward to living with God for all eternity in a new heaven and on a new earth.

We believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God.

“All Scripture is God-breathed…”   2 Timothy 3:16

We believe that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with  you all.”   2 Corinthians 13:14

We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father and in His personal return in power and glory.
“For in Christ all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form.”   Colossians 2:9

“This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about:  His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit.” Matthew 1:18

“God made Him who had no sin to be sin for us…”   2 Corinthians 5:21
“He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins…”    1 John 2:2

 

 

“God has raised this Jesus to life…”   Acts 2: 32

“But from now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right hand of the mighty God.”   Luke 22: 69

“…This same Jesus… will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”   Acts 1:11

We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful humans, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.
“…no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.”   John 3:5

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
“Don’t you know that…God’s Spirit lives in you?”   1 Corinthians 3:16 “Now to each one the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.”   1 Corinthians 12:7
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and  self-control.”   Galatians 5: 22 & 23a
We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost:  they that are saved unto the resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
“…a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and come out—those who have  done good will rise to live, and those who have done evil will rise to be condemned.” John 5:28-29

“And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the  dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit, who lives in you.” Romans 8:11

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as  you follow Christ Jesus.”   Romans 15:5

We are in partnership with congregations of the Christian Reformed Denomination

CHRISTIAN:
To say that we are a Christian church means we believe that Jesus Christ is God’s perfect and
eternal Son, who was miraculously born to His mother Mary, 2,000 years ago.  Jesus was not only a terrific teacher and wonderful example, He was willing to accept all the guilt for everything that we have done wrong and was punished on our behalf when He was crucified on the cross.

But the grave couldn’t keep Him!  He was raised from the dead so that we can have a personal relationship with Him today.  So, today we serve Him and others, motivated by gratitude.

REFORMED:
To say that we are a Reformed church, simply means that our roots are in the Protestant Reformation of the 16th century.  We still hold to the principles promoted by the Reformation:

bullet The Bible alone is our authority because it is our source for knowing God’s will. 
bullet Grace alone, that is God’s free gift of his love and forgiveness, restores people to a right relationship with the Lord. 
bullet Faith alone, and not our best efforts at being good enough for God, is the way we become God’s own children.
