What We Believe

 

Our personal statement of faith,
 

We believe in one God and that we belong to Him in life and in death. We believe that in grace, God has given His son Jesus Christ, fully human and fully God, to redeem mankind; We believe that the Lord God Jesus Christ died to save us from our sin, and we believe that on the third day He rose from the dead with all power.

 

We accept Jesus as Lord of our life. We also call God our Father. We believe God is just and merciful; and at His initiative, He has called us to be His. We believe God loves us; that He has personal knowledge of us; and that He has a personal agenda for us.

 

Our personal faith also involves our personal responsibility to God to know His will in and for our lives. We believe and trust in Jesus Christ. Our personal faith is made effective through the Holy Spirit, the third person in the Godhead, working in our lives as we believe and trust in God.

 

His Spirit justifies us by grace through faith and sets us free to accept ourselves and to love God and our fellow man.
