Our Beliefs 

why

open table

church

Jesus spent time with all kinds of people around the table--Pharisees, sinners, and tax collectors. Then and now he welcomes all to come and to follow him into fullness of life.


who

is The

Trinity

We believe in the one true God, the source of all life, who eternally rules over all creation and exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1Genesis 2:7Deuteronomy 6:4Psalm 47:28Matthew 28:18-192 Corinthians 13:13-14Hebrews 1:3Revelation 4:11)


what

is

the Bible

We believe God has made Himself known to all people beginning with creation and culminating in Jesus Christ. God continues to reveal Himself in the 66 books of the Old and New Testaments which are divinely inspired and trustworthy, and through the Holy Spirit whose promptings and revelation are always consistent with Scripture (Psalm 19:1-11John 17:17Romans 1:18-202 Timothy 3:16-172 Peter 3:15-16Hebrews 1:1-2)


who

is

jesus

We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, God manifest in the flesh, His virgin birth, His sinless human life, His divine miracles, His substitutionary and atoning death, His bodily resurrection, His ascension, His mediating work, and His future return in power and glory. (Isaiah 53:4-6Luke 1:26-35John 1:11411:38-44Acts 1:9-101 Corinthians 15:3-8Colossians 1:152:92 Thessalonians 1:5-10Hebrews 1:1-34:157:25-27)


Sin

&

Humanity

We believe God created the heavens and the earth. Humanity is God’s unique, image-bearing creation and crowning act. Sin has alienated humanity from the Creator and creation, but God offers redemption and reconciliation through faith alone in Jesus Christ alone. (Genesis 1-2; Psalm 8:3-8Isaiah 59:1-2John 14:6Acts 4:12Romans 3:23Ephesians 1:7Colossians 1:21-22Revelation 5:9-10)


Salvation

&

The Holy Spirit

We believe God saves all people who put their faith in Jesus Christ. By His obedient life, sacrificial death, and victorious resurrection, Christ delivers people from the grip of sin and death and redeems them for eternal life in the age to come. We believe the Holy Spirit regenerates and indwells the people of God, enabling them to live holy lives. (John 3:16Acts 16:30-31Romans 6:1-118:9-10Ephesians 2:8-101 John 2:293:94:75:1)


We believe the Church is the community of God, called by God through Jesus Christ and signified by baptism and the Lord’s Supper. The local church gathers regularly for worship and fellowship, and engages the culture with a life of discipleship and witness as empowered by the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 5:1616:1828:19Luke 9:23-26Acts 1:82:38421 Corinthians 1:26-3111:23-26Hebrews 10:19-251 Peter 2:9)

What

is the

Church


We believe the Lord Jesus Christ will return triumphantly at the end of this age to destroy all evil powers, resurrect all humanity, condemn all who reject Him to eternal punishment, and unite all believers to live and reign with God forever. (Matthew 24:29-3125:31-46John 5:25-292 Thessalonians 1:5-10Revelation 5:9-1019:1121:8)
