What We Believe

We believe Jesus is more important than anything else! Because of this we don’t get bogged down on interpretations of scripture that typically divide genuine Christ followers. We believe there are a few core beliefs within the Christian tradition basic to our faith.  The rest – we simply agree to disagree on so our ability to collectively take part in the mission of Christ isn’t compromised. We say it this way: We have unity in the essentials (Ephesians 4:4–6; Romans 15:5), freedom in the non-essentials (Romans 14:1–23; Galatians 5:1), and in all things love (1 Corinthians 13:13). 

As such, our sole statement of faith is the Apostles’ Creed which has been in existence within the church since the late 300’s AD. It has served as an enduring and unifying statement for churches everywhere, while also allowing for a variety of differences within each church to still exist:

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, who was crucified, died, was buried, and descended to the dead. On the third day He rose again and ascended into heaven. He is seated at the right hand of the Father and he will come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church, the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.
