What We Believe

The Bible is not a book primarily about us and what we have to do for God in order to be accepted and loved by Him, but rather the Bible is a book that is primarily about God and what he has done for us through Jesus Christ. Grace means that we are God’s people because of Jesus, period. Therefore, we believe the Bible, from beginning to end, is about grace.

Grace means that we are accepted and loved by God not because we are good, moral, or religious people, but because we know that we are unworthy of God’s Kingdom and we trust completely in what Jesus has done for us in His life, death and resurrection. Grace strips us of our phony religiosity. Therefore, we can be real. We can be honest with one another and ourselves. We can admit our flaws and brokenness and admit that we are a mess. But because of Jesus we know that we are God’s beautiful mess. This means we no longer need to put a spin on things, control what others think about us, or pretend to be someone else. Grace allows us to go through life with confidence and humility at the same time because our identity is no longer in ourselves, but in Jesus.

We believe that Jesus is God in human form who came to earth to create a new humanity by redeeming every aspect of our life.
We believe that the salvation Jesus offers the world is the only hope for bringing healing to our relationship with God, ourself, each other, and creation.
We believe that the Church is not a building, but the community of God’s people, a new humanity, called to reflect God’s ongoing presence in the world.
We believe that all of life is spiritual, and that all of our fears, failures, and brokenness can be restored and made whole through our relationship with Jesus.
We believe and affirm the central truths of the historic orthodox Christian faith, seeing ourselves in a long line of generations taking part in the endless conversation between God and people.
We believe the Bible to be the voices of those who have come before us, who were inspired by God to pass along their poems, stories, accounts, and letters to reveal His Story of His love and grace through Jesus Christ.
