Our core theological convictions as a church are centered around five areas: the image of God in human beings, the person of Jesus, the good news of God's kingdom, the authority of scripture, and the presence of the Holy Spirit in our lives.
Humans Are Made In The Image of God
God created a good and ordered world, and placed humans in it to rule and reign it on His behalf. From the beginning of the Biblical narrative, God’s intention has been that we would live up to the image He’s given us and embody His creative goodness wherever we go. This image provides us a daily reminder of the value that God places on every human life, each of which he intentionally formed for a specific purpose.
(Genesis 1:1-2:4; Psalm 8)
Jesus Is At The Center Of Human History
Though we are meant to be God’s image in the world, we cannot seem to live up to that purpose. God solved this sin problem by becoming human in the person of Jesus and being what we could not be. Jesus performed the upside-down act of giving himself over to death on a Roman cross so that we might truly live, so when we repent from our sin and make Him our Lord, we join in on His new creation project.
(John 1:1-18; Ephesians 1:3-10; Revelation 22)
The Gospel Must Be Preached
We are deeply committed to sharing the Gospel, the good news that Jesus has defeated sin and that His kingdom is coming on earth, with others. This story is available to all, and is something that cannot be kept to ourselves because Jesus has transformed our lives. God invites each of us to personally partner in the mission of bringing His kingdom here on earth through the message and lifestyle of Jesus.
(Matthew 28:16-20; Galatians 3:26-29)
The Biblical Story Is Authoritative
We believe the library of Christian scripture has been canonized through the Holy Spirit’s work in the Church throughout history, and is one unified story that leads to Jesus. Scripture is inspired by God, and in it we find wisdom and instruction that leads us to become who we are meant to be as God’s image-bearers.
(2 Timothy 3:14-17; Psalm 1)
The Holy Spirit Is Active In Our Lives
We believe that the Holy Spirit empowers us to be God’s faithful representatives to the world. We all have a part to play in bringing God’s kingdom on earth, and we do this through the gifts of the Holy Spirit that are expressed in each of us differently, but are all designed to lead people to Jesus.
(Acts 2; 1 Corinthains 12)
