WHAT WE BELIEVE

IN ESSENTIAL BELIEFS
In the essential beliefs, we strive for unity. “There is one Body and one Spirit… there is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and one God and Father of us all…” Ephesians 4:4-6
IN NON-ESSENTIAL BELIEFS
We strive for liberty. “Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge… Each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things, keep between yourself and God.” Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22
IN ALL BELIEFS
We strive for charity. “If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge, but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains – but have no love, I amount to nothing at all.” 1 Corinthians 13:2

Did you know one could be positionally right, but dispositionally wrong? Even though one might be correct about doctrine, he/she could still have an inappropriate attitude toward others. However, when believers dwell in unity, there is a place of commanded blessing. “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!…For there the Lord bestows His blessing, even life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1, 3b

THE BIBLE

The Bible is the divine revelation of God to mankind, our fixed source of authority for faith and conduct, without error and endurable for all generations and cultures.

GOD

God is eternal, having always existed outside of time and space and a single Being consisting of three Persons – Father, Son, & Holy Spirit.
