We are, first and foremost, a Christian congregation. We, therefore, subscribe to the beliefs expressed in the Nicene and Apostles’Creeds, which we regularly affirm as part of our worship services.
We believe in one God, who exists in three persons, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the full deity and humanity of God the Son, Jesus Christ, who lived, died, and rose again. We practice the Lord’s Supper and Baptism, as Christ commanded us to do.
We are also a part of the “Reformed” tradition, a particular variety of Christian faith which emphasizes God’s sovereignty, the centrality of Jesus Christ, the inspiration, sufficiency, and reliability of God’s Word written, and our “covenant” relationship with God. This faith traces its roots back to the reformer John Calvin. As a part of this tradition, we emphasize the scriptures of the Hebrew Bible and New Testament to be the Word of God written, inspired by the Holy Spirit, fully authoritative, sufficient, complete, and reliable as God’s written word to us.
The scriptures point us to, and reveal to us, the Living Word, Jesus Christ, who came to live among us as one of us, fully divine and fully human, “God with us,” to model for us and teach us God’s intent for humanity, and to rescue us from sin and reconcile us with God. God accepts us as we are if we will only welcome him as Savior and submit to him as Lord. But he does not leave us as we are found: he takes us on a journey of inward and outward transformation, and we become witnesses to his love and grace.
We are all fallible human beings relying on God’s grace, trusting in our Savior for our past, present, future, and eternity. We invite you to visit our community and observe how we share our journeys and pursue God together.
