A closer look...
We are a Christ-centered congregation. We believe that God has revealed Himself in the person and life of Jesus Christ, who is both the divine Son of God and the human Son of Mary. He came from heaven to reconcile sinful creatures to our Creator. To do this He had to fulfill every promise made about Him in the Old Testament, including His death on a cross and His resurrection out of death.
In knowing Jesus, we know the Father (John 14:9). Jesus is the perfect representation of His Father (Hebrews 1:3). We believe the purpose of the Bible is to reveal Jesus to us so that we can trust in Him (John 20:31). Faith in Jesus reconciles us to the Father, delivers us from the devil’s hold on us, and will ultimately rescue us from death and all other consequences of our sin.
On Sunday mornings, we usually make a concise, yet profound, statement of our beliefs by reciting either the Apostles’ Creed or the Nicene Creed. These statements of faith have been spoken by centuries of Christians to help us voice the foundational, biblical beliefs that we share with millions of believers worldwide. These truths are discovered in the Holy Bible where God reveals Himself and reveals His plan to rescue and renew us for eternal life with Him.
We also use a Bible study tool called the Small Catechism to provide a more detailed study of the central teachings of the Bible. We use this to help our youth and new adults learn the contents of the Bible and learn more about what Jesus has done to save us.
