What We Believe
There are the core convictions by which we as disciples live
There is one body of Christ called to be his image bearers (2 Corinthians 3:18) and united in the mission of gathering the nations (Matthew 28:19). Accordingly, we believe that it is God’s ideal that every church congregation strives to be intentionally diverse in ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, gender, etc.
There is one Spirit who dwells within the community of his people (1 Corinthians 3:16) and works to guide his people and bring us together in unity and family fellowship (2 Corinthians 13:14).
There is one hope for God’s people: the resurrection of those in Christ (1 Corinthians 15). The hope of resurrection is the substance of our faith and life in Christ (Hebrews 11:1) as we anticipate the time of the renewal of all things (Matthew 19:28), when those in Christ will be transformed to be like Him (Philippians 3:21) and dwell with the Lord in the new creation forever (Revelation 21:1-5).
There is one Lord and we are called to respond to him in allegiance as our King (Acts 2:36) as we strive to recognize the reality of his kingdom and kingship in every area of our lives, collectively and individually, secularly and otherwise.
There is one faith in the life of Jesus Christ as the light of the world (John 1:1-4). We are unashamed in proclaiming that He is the only way to be brought to reconciliation with God (John 14:6) and renewed in the created purpose for human beings to reflect God’s image (Colossians 3:10).
There is one baptism into Christ (Romans 6:1-10). Only by believing in His life, repenting from sin and self-determination, confessing him as the true Lord and King, and being baptized into the life of Christ can we find salvation and restoration.
There is one God and Father whom we serve and seek to do His will here on Earth as it is done in heaven (Matthew 6:10).
