Our Beliefs

Because God loves us, even in our sinfulness, and He desires all people to be saved:

  • He gives us true faith, to trust in the work of Jesus, Who at the cross set us free from the powers of sin, death, and the devil, by which we were bound and could not free ourselves.

  • He exposes our false faith, as we are tempted to put our trust in our own understanding and works, which cannot help us. We are saved by faith alone, grace alone, the Word alone, Christ alone.

  • Jesus welcomes us into this blessed exchange of grace -- He receives all our sins, and we receive all His righteousness!

"For it is by grace you have been saved through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God!" -Ephesians 2:8

The Christian life is growing in love:

  • Being bold to confess our sins, for those who are forgiven much, are loved much.

  • Rejoicing that the Holy Spirit lives in us, making us His saints and growing His fruit of love in us, so that others may receive the kindness and compassion of Jesus through us.

  • Praying for each other and speaking the truth in love.

  • Serving all in need, all who suffer, and all who do not know God's saving love.
