What We Believe
We embrace the basic truths of Christianity. In the Bible, God tells us who He is, and what he has done and will continue to do for His people. God offers eternal hope to all who believe in His Son, Jesus, who died in obedience to God so that others might live. Christianity is a living relationship with a real person, Jesus Christ, whose love for us shows us how to love others. Nothing of any spiritual value is possible in and of ourselves. Only through God's grace can we love and accept others regardless of our differences. To allow God to work in our lives, we must step back from ourselves and look to Him to guide us. Life is really not about you and about me. It's about God.
