WHAT WE BELIEVE. . .
GOD IS RELATIONAL
We believe that God is love, as revealed in the Bible. This one eternal God is relational, three distinct persons, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy
Spirit, existing together as a community of oneness; a unity in trinity and a trinity in unity. This One God is the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe.
HISTORY IS DIRECTIONAL
We believe that God has a plan "From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them
and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each
one of us." (Acts 17:26-27)
LIFE IS MEANINGFUL
We believe that the primary purpose of the human being is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. Jesus said: "Now this is eternal life: that they may know
you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent." (John 17:3) Jesus said: "I have come that they may have life and have it to the full." (John 10:
LOVE IS INTENTIONAL
We believe that God loves and acts redemptively. "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life." (John 3:16) "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8) "This is how
we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us." (1 John 3:16) "For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you
to God." (1 Peter 3:18) "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily
angered, it keeps no record of wrongs." (1 Corinthians 13:4-5)
SAINT PAUL IS AVAILABLE
"For salvation that comes from trusting Christ-which is what we preach-is already within easy reach of each of us; in fact, it is as near as our own hearts and
mouths. For if you tell others with your own mouth that Jesus Christ is your Lord and believe in your own heart that God has raised him from the dead, you
will be saved. For it is by believing in his heart that a man becomes right with God; and with his mouth he tells others of his faith, confirming his salvation. For
the Scriptures tell us that no one who believes in Christ will ever be disappointed." (Romans 10:8-11) "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the
old has gone, the new has come!" (2 Corinthians 5:17) "It's in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ
and got our hopes up, he had his eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose he is working out in everything and everyone."
