What We Believe


Reformed

We are reformed in our theology. Our theological heritage dates back to the Protestant Reformation, a movement in the 16th century which sought to bring the church back to the scriptures alone as the source of religious authority, to salvation by grace through faith and in Christ alone, and to God’s glory as the central emphasis of all of life.


The Word of God

We believe the Bible is the written word of God, inspired by the Holy Spirit and without error in the original manuscripts. The Bible is the revelation of God’s truth and is infallible and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.


God

We believe in the Holy Trinity. There is one God, who exists eternally in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


Man

We believe that all are sinners and totally unable to save themselves from God’s displeasure, except by His mercy.


Sovereign Grace

We believe that salvation is by God alone as He sovereignly chooses those He will save. We believe His choice is based on His grace, not on any human individual merit, or foreseen faith.


Jesus Christ

We believe that Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, who through His perfect life and sacrificial death atoned for the sins of all who will trust in Him, alone, for salvation.


Covenant

We believe that God is gracious and faithful to His people not simply as individuals but as families in successive generations according to His Covenant promises.


Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells God’s people and gives them the strength and wisdom to trust Christ and follow Him.


Judgement

We believe that Jesus will return, bodily and visibly, to judge all mankind and to receive His people to Himself.

We believe that all aspects of our lives are to be lived to the glory of God under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

Upcoming Events

This Saturday some of our youth will embark on a 7 day mission trip to Costa Rica where they will team up with Rodney and Jana Davilla. They are MTW missionaries in Costa Rica whom we support. Please pray that God will prepare them to be intentional during their mission and guide their efforts as they minister to the people of Costa Rica.
