What we Believe

We share these basic beliefs* as disciples of Jesus Christ:

  • God seeks to restore fallen humanity by calling a people to be faithful in all of life. 
  • Jesus is the son of God who taught how to be faithful.  Through his cross and resurrection, he redeemed the world.  
  • The church is a community of those the Spirit calls to turn from sin, acknowledge Jesus as Lord, receive baptism and follow Christ in life. 
  • The Bible is interpreted in light of Jesus by the faith community, under the Holy Spirit’s guidance. 
  • The Holy Spirit empowers us to become peacemakers who renounce violence, love our enemies, seek justice and share possessions with those in need.
  • The faith community gathers regularly to worship, celebrate the Lord’s Supper and to hear the Word of God in a spirit of mutual accountability.
  • We seek to live in the world without conforming to the powers of evil.  We witness to God’s grace by serving others, caring for creation and inviting others to know Jesus.
