Statement of Faith
We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, goodness and love, and in Jesus Christ, his Son, our Lord and Savior, who for us and our salvation lived and died and rose again and liveth forevermore, and in the Holy Spirit, who taketh of the things of Christ and revealeth them to us, renewing, comforting, and inspiring the souls of men.
We are united in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures, and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us.
We hold it to be the mission of the Church of Christ to proclaim the gospel to all mankind, exalting the worship of the one true God, and laboring for the progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace, and the realization of human brotherhood.
Depending, as did our fathers, upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the kingdom of God, and we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness, and the life everlasting.
Statement of Purpose: Love God, Grow Together, Reach the World
As a community of Christ followers, we endeavor to be a healthy, vital congregation, continually growing in three essential dynamics of spiritual life and relationship. These aspects of church life must be kept in a blended balance and flowing in a unifying stream.
- A vital relationship with God – growing in our worship of God and in our faith in Jesus Christ. Without God, we’re just another human organization.
- A close relationship with each other – growing into a deeper fellowship of faith and in a closer bond of love, in mutual belonging and partnership in the body of Christ’s church. Without this bond, we’re fragmented into individual pieces.
- A fruitful relationship with the world – growing in our outreach to the people and the needs of our immediate community and in mission to all peoples around the world. Without this incarnational presence in the world around us, we’re irrelevant.
