In Essential Beliefs

We have unity

"There is one body and one Spirit…there is one Lord, one
    faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all..."
    Eph. 4:4-6 (NLT)

in non- essential beliefs

we have liberty

"Accept other believers who are weak in faith, and don’t argue with them about what they think is right or wrong...Who are you to condemn someone else’s servants? Their own master will judge whether they stand or fall...So why do you condemn another believer? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God...Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God...You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right.” Rom. 14:1, 4, 10, 12, 22 (NLT)

in all our beliefs

we show charity

"...and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 1 Cor. 13:2 (NLT)

We affirm these essential beliefs:

  1. the Trinity

  2. the full deity and humanity of Christ

  3. the spiritual lostness of the human race

  4. the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ

  5. salvation by faith alone in Christ alone

  6. the physical return of Christ

  7. the authority and inerrancy of Scripture.
