about God, Jesus and the Spirit

about God, Jesus, and the Spirit


We believe in one God,  infinite in wisdom, power, and love.  We believe that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ give us a clear, full, and true revelation of God. God is love.  “If we love one another, God abides in us” (1 John 4:7-21). Through prayer, and in fellowship with God, we grow in our understanding of the divine purpose and will for our lives.
JESUS CHRIST
We believe in Jesus, the Christ – the promised Messiah and Deliverer,  truly human and truly divine, our Savior and the Savior of the world. The unmatched depth of God’s love is revealed in Jesus’ preaching, teaching, and healing, and in His suffering, death, and resurrection. We believe the living Christ is present with us and that through faith in Christ we experience the joy of salvation.
THE HOLY SPIRIT
We believe in the Holy Spirit as God present with us for guidance, comfort, and strength.  We affirm the Holy Spirit’s presence in our lives, inspiring those qualities known in the New Testament as the “fruits of the Spirit” – “love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control” (Galatians 5:22-23).  The Holy Spirit inspires gifts that are to be used for our mutual upbuilding: “To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good” (1 Corinthians 12:4-7).
