What We Believe

About God

God is the Creator who made the universe and us. The Westminster Shorter Catechism says that “God is a Spirit, infinite, eternal, and unchangeable, in His being, wisdom, power, holiness, justice, goodness, and truth.”

About Ourselves

God has given all human beings worth and dignity by creating us in His image. But because of sin we fall short of who we want to be and who God desires us to be. God, however, does not abandon us. We are forgiven, redeemed and made whole by Jesus Christ, God’s Son.

About Jesus

Jesus Christ is our Lord and the world’s only Savior. Through his life, death, resurrection, and ascension, God offers us forgiveness and the opportunity to renew our relationship with Him now and forever. Following Jesus means learning to put God first and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

About the Bible

Scripture is more than a set of guidelines or ideals. It reveals God’s truth. It is the written Word of God and our authority in faith and life. The Bible points us to Jesus Christ, who is the living Word of God.

About You

Jesus died for you. Because He loves you and values you, you matter.

About the Church

Jesus never intended for his followers to go it alone. He calls us into community. Christ’s followers are called to live out our faith within His Church. Our congregation is in the Presbyterian branch of Christianity, and specifically the PC(USA). We are guided by the PC(USA) Book of Order and Book of Confessions. Being Presbyterian shapes our church, but does not limit it.
