We affirm the historic and orthodox Christian faith. We believe that God has revealed himself through the Holy and Inspired Scriptures. We believe that God has invited us to be rooted in Him and His desires to bring wholeness and peace towards others, towards the earth, towards Himself and within ourselves.
We affirm the necessity of practices that provide us with the eyes to see and the ears to hear God in the everyday moments of our lives. We believe in engaging in spiritual disciplines that allow us to see, listen, taste and touch the reality of God.
We affirm our role, as God’s people, to serve and bless others. The Church as the body of Jesus is to follow His example and share his heart for others in our broken and fragmented world. We believe in following Jesus towards those who are suffering and facing injustice and living out the redemptive and transformative message of hope that is found in Jesus.
We affirm that everyone bears God’s image. Through sharing in each other’s sufferings and celebrations, loving and forgiving one another, we can journey forward. We were made for community and within loving relationships, God’s truth takes on flesh and blood, and we are not alone. We believe that together through Jesus we can become more than we our by ourselves.
