The Gospel

The word “gospel” means “good news.” The message of the Christian faith is gospel; it is good news. It is a message that brings hope, forgiveness, newness, love and life. The gospel is grounded in the historical reality of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, which brought about the spiritual salvation that we can enjoy in Him.


Statement of Faith

A Statement of Faith is a declaration of truths, as we understand them, in regard to the Gospel. This does not exhaust the extent of our beliefs. The Bible itself, as the inspired and infallible Word of God, speaks with final authority and is the sole and final source of all that we believe.


Core Commitments

We’ve listed our Core Commitments to outline what we as a church strive for in our walk with God. These include the specific scripture references that affirm these important commitments.
