Statement of Faith

statement of faithGod

is, has been, and will always be. He created everything, and is still creating. God is over everything, and there is no other like Him. God loves you more than you can possibly imagine, no matter what “stuff” may be in your past, and there is nothing you can do to make God love you any more or any less.

Jesus

is God’s Son. He came to earth to model God’s love and grace, voluntarily die on a cross for the sins of every person, and be brought back to life so we could all be reunited with God now and forever. Our sins have been bought and paid for by Jesus’ sacrifice. When we believe that Jesus is who He says He is, we find a perfect Friend who welcomes us with open arms just the way we are.

The Holy Spirit

is God’s actual Spirit that lives in us when we choose to be a follower of Jesus. The Spirit gives us amazing power and gifts, and helps us grow to be more like Jesus.

The Bible

is God’s Word for us, His children. It’s true and reliable.

 

This statement of faith speaks to the absolutes we hold together. We recognize that as people of faith we understand and experience God in different ways. “In essentials, unity; in doubtful matters, liberty; in all things, charity.”
