WHAT WE BELIEVE

You don't need to be a Christian to join us in worship.

We welcome you whatever you might believe or have done. If you have questions or just want to see what we’re about - know you are welcome here.

We believe in Grace.

We can’t do it on our own and no matter how hard we try we’re never going be quite good enough to earn our way into God’s presence. However, God has made a way through Jesus Christ that we can have both hope and freedom. We believe that God has opened the door to life anew through faith in Him.

We believe in infant baptism as a view of God’s grace extended in His covenant.

However, let there be no mistake we believe in baptizing adults too! Pastor Ben would love nothing more than to talk with you about your interest in baptism.

We believe that Jesus is Lord.

We believe that Jesus is God’s son who came to free the world from the bondage of sin and is God dwelling in the presence of His people.

We believe in prayer.

We trust that God not only hears the prayers we offer but also responds. We would love to pray with you even if you aren’t sure that you believe it!

We celebrate communion.

We celebrate communion on the first Sunday of every month as a way to allow our senses to remind our heads of what God has done for us. Every baptized person coming with a repentant heart and proclaims faith in Christ is welcome.

We believe that the church isn’t perfect.

We are not a place for people to come once they have it all together but acknowledge that we are a community of broken and hurting people who have been brought together by Grace in Christ so that He might begin the hard work of fixing and transforming us.

We believe in caring for the poor, the hungry, the homeless, and those pushed to the margins.

God has given us to one another that we may love and provide as able. We are intentional about serving those who God has called us love.

We believe that being a Christian is not a ‘one day a week’ venture that happens on Sunday.

But rather a radical way of life that leads us to worshipping God in every aspect of our lives. How we treat our family, coworkers, neighbors, and even those we disagree with is shaped by the Grace and love God has first given us. Our worship on Sunday morning is our time when we come together to sing, pray, and study as a church body but our life as people living for God is ongoing.

We are a Presbyterian Church.

This means we are reformed in our theology. We affirm that scripture is God’s Word profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the people of God may be complete, equipped for every good work. We affirm the Apostles Creed and the other documents found in our book of confessions.
