About the Church"WHAT WE BELIEVE
A CONFESSION OF FAITH
- We trust in the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.
- We trust in Jesus as our Savior and Lord. We believe that he came down from heaven and that by the power of the Holy Spirit he became incarnate from the Virgin Mary. He preached Good News to the poor and release to the captives. Through Jesus' ministry the Kingdom of God was coming into the world. He welcomed women and men as his disciples, blessed children, healed the sick, dined with outcasts, and extended divine mercy to sinners. For the salvation of the world he suffered, was crucified, died, was buried, and was raised from the dead. He ascended into heaven and will come again to complete the work he has begun.
- We trust in God whom Jesus called Abba, Father. We believe that God created the world and that it is a good world. God made all the people of the world in God's own image and crowned them with glory and honor. God continues to love the world even though the world often chooses to resist God. God broke the power of evil by raising Jesus from the dead.
- We trust in the Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of God and of Jesus. We believe that the Spirit helps us to pray to God and continually reminds us of Jesus. The Spirit gives new life to all who trust in Jesus, incorporates them into the church, and produces in them fruit such as love, joy, and peace. The Spirit protects the church and binds its members together with cords of love. The Spirit guides and empowers the church on its mission to the world. The Spirit gives to all Christian women and men spiritual gifts which equip them to carry out every kind of ministry, thereby enriching the life of the church and helping the church to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world."
