Our doctrinal standards are in accord with the faith of the ancient church, the apostolic and orthodox creeds, and the evangelical spirit of John Wesley.

 

We Believe...

  • In the Holy Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • In Jesus Christ, the Word of God and Son of God; truly God and truly human.

  • In the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

  • In the sufficiency and authority of the Holy Scriptures, the Old and New Testaments, for knowledge of Salvation and Christian Faith and Practice.

  • In the forgiveness of sins and reconciliation to God by faith in the merit and sacrificial death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

  • In the convicting, comforting, sustaining, and empowering presence of the Holy Spirit.

  • The church is the redemptive fellowship of believers where the pure Word of God is preached and the Sacraments duly administered according to Christ's command.

  • In the Christian life as one of individual and communal discipleship.
