Statement of Faith

We are a part of the historic Judeo-Christian Church and our foundational vision and beliefs seek to be rooted in scripture and the history of the Church. Therefore we hold to the most basic beliefs of the church found in the The Apostles’ Creed:

“We believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord.
He was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontias Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried.
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again.
He ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy catholic Church,
The communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins,
The resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting. Amen.”

 

On the Christian family tree we are a part of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and are committed to a Reformed perspective on all of life. One of the key tenets of the Reformed tradition is that our beliefs ought to be constantly reforming, changing, and developing in light of God’s continual revelation and the cultural context we find ourselves in. As a community we seek to follow after Jesus who is the Truth. Therefore Truth is known and discovered in community in and through the historic person of Jesus Christ.
