What We Believe

Our Church is committed to these core values:

BIBLICAL – We believe that our beliefs and behavior should conform to the character of Jesus Christ and the teaching of God’s Word. As God’s Word written, the Bible contains all things necessary to our salvation. Faithfully proclaiming the truth of God’s Word is essential to the life of the Church.

HISTORICAL – We believe that the Church has a great heritage of teaching and tradition rooting us in the Apostle’s teaching and keeping us faithful to the Holy Spirit’s presence and power in our lives. We affirm the three historical Creeds of the Church: The Apostles’ Creed, the Nicene Creed, and the Athanasian Creed and the 39 Articles of Religion of the Anglican Communion.

WORSHIPFUL – We believe that the highest calling for every Christian is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Worship is a holy encounter with the living God, filling us with peace and promise.

SACRAMENTAL – We believe the Risen Lord meets us in grace-filled moments throughout our lives. Christ has ordained these sacred-moments for health and growth as a Christian, especially in Holy Baptism and Holy Communion.

TEACHABLE – We believe the posture of every Christian is to follow Jesus as a disciple . . . listening, learning, and applying God’s Word to our lives, our homes, our ministry, and our mission.

MISSIONAL – We believe the Good News of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is for sharing with our neighbor and with our world. We are ambassadors, helping people to know Him, to love Him and to live for Him.

CHARITABLE – We believe we express our love for God by loving one another. We are committed to living in fellowship with other Christians, extending hospitality to the stranger, and sharing generously with the poor and needy.
