We believe the local church is Jesus’ creation, toward a sane and stable world.

We believe the Bible is the divinely inspired record of humanity’s authentic spiritual experiences with God, and the primary authority in matters of faith and practice.

We believe Scripture, tradition, reason and experience are all part of determining our community’s direction and values.

We believe God’s Holy Spirit is available and active in our world, our church and our lives, leading us in unity and propelling us with divine power.

We believe Jesus Christ can bring real change in the human heart through grace and the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

We believe each Christ follower has spiritual gifts that give true meaning to living and strengthen our shared ministry.

We accept an openness in theological belief, acknowledging different points of view within the same community of believers.
