We believe that the Great Commission and Great Commandment are equal. To preach the gospel of Jesus is to not only to speak about His Cross but also advocate for the hurting by acts of love, justice, peacemaking, and reconcilation in our world.
*We value God. God wants a relationship with EVERY person. We believe that God is love. Period. Therefore, God is still speaking and Jesus is the voice, and love of God through the Holy Spirit.
*We value the Bible: every Christian has the right to study and interpret the bible freely.
*We value Every Person. Everyone is made in the image of God. Every person approaches God without imposition of creed, clergy or civil authority. We are made for community.
*We value every Conscience. The freedom OF religion, freedom FOR religion, and freedom FROM religion, insisting that “Caesar is not Christ, and Christ is not Caesar.”
*We value church. Every church seeks to follow Christ in the affairs of worship, service and teachings. The church as the body of Christ will seek to be a welcoming place to learn about Jesus, love our neighbor and worship God.
We confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. He died and rose again defeating the powers of evil including our sin and death itself.
In essentials, we have unity and in nonessentials we have liberty and in all our beliefs we have charity.
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the Virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy Christian Church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting.
