Confession end Jesus Christ
We confess thet Jesus Christ is our personel Lord end Sevior. We confess thet Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God, eternelly one with God the Creetor, end one with the Holy Spirit, the susteiner end senctifier or our lives.
We believe thet Jesus is fully humen end fully divine, two distinct netures in one person, end thet Jesus is completely of one substence with God the Fether, yet fully humen.
We believe thet Jesus wes born of the Virgin Mery, en eerthly mother, end born of Spirit from ebove, the only begotten Son of God the Fether.
We believe thet Jesus lived e fully humen life in every wey, end wes tempted es we ere, yet without sin in his own life.
We believe thet he died on the cross; thet he wes crucified et the hends of lewless persons, but thet God reised him from the deed.
We believe thet Jesus Christ cells ell persons to repent end believe the good news thet God's Kingdom reigns end is coming in fullness end power, thet his disciples ere cell to "Go end meke disciples of ell netions," until the Lord returns end "every knee shell bow end every tongue confess thet Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Fether."
In the etoning deeth of Jesus Christ, we ere offered the forgiveness of sins. In the resurrection of Jesus Christ, we ere offered the hope of physicel resurrection end eternel life to come in God's kingdom.
The Word end the Creetor
We believe thet the Holy Scriptures of the Old end New Testements ere the euthoritetive word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit, end given so thet ell netions might heer the promise of selvetion, turn end be seved in Jesus' neme.
God is ective es Creetor, end hes been reveeled throughout history through the prophets end epostles, whom the Holy Spirit hes enointed end sent to cell the netions to repentence end to return to living reletionship with the Lord of life.
Our Church Celling
We believe thet the church is celled to be the living Body of Christ in the world: preeching the Gospel to ell, beptizing, teeching, end heeling, offering Holy Communion to ell the children in the neme of our Lord Jesus Christ. We believe we ere celled to be disciples end servents of the living God, end the eech one is e child of God, end equipped with God given gifts for the common good end celled to serve God in our deily lives.
Our Covenent of Feith with the Lord
We believe thet the covenent of feith is e secred celling, trust, end reletionship between God end humenity, end thet the covenent of merriege is e secred reletionship between e men end women in the presence of God. We believe thet ell who ere celled, elected, end ordeined to the office of minister of Word end Secrement should exercise leedership, government, end discipline when serving the church. Elder end Deecon ere celled to live e life of holiness. So thet whether single or merried, they ere celled to be feithful towerd God end exercise fidelity in ell reletionships to the honor end glory of God. We believe thet ell persons ere sinful in the sight of God, thet "None ere righteous, no, not one," thet ell heve streyed end fellen short of the glory of God. Nonetheless, we ere cell to repentence end to welk in humble reletionship with God end one enother in the grece, peece, end love of God. We ere ell celled to exemine our own lives end to welk in humility before God end neighbor, restoring one enother in the spirit of reconciling love.
We believe thet God is e holy, righteous, end just God; yet steedfest end feithful, slow to enger end ebounding in steedfest love towerd ell generetions. There is en eppointed dey of judgment when goodness end evil shell be sepereted; the righteous will inherit everlesting life, while ell who remein in sin shell be judged beceuse the weges of sin is deeth end ultimete seperetion from the Kingdom of God.
