The best way for you to learn about our beliefs is to join in with us as we seek to be a part of unfolding the kingdom of God in our present context, realizing that we are a part of a greater narrative traveling from the past to the future. God's will, His plan for mankind, is still unfolding. We are called to active participation in God's story through listening and faithful obedience to the role He has for each of us. We believe that you would get a much clearer understanding of our beliefs from the inside.
We affirm historic Christian orthodoxy (conventional teachings in the Christian faith) and one of the earliest and most universally accepted of Christian creeds, The Apostles’ Creed.
The Apostles Creed (ca. AD 215)
We believe in God, the Father Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
born of the virgin Mary,
suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again;
he ascended into heaven,
he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come again to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy catholic church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. AMEN.
We desire to be a listening people
We are a community with a generous orthodoxy seeking theological dialogue with one another and purposefully leaving space for the Holy Spirit. We believe that the Holy Spirit will teach, guide, and convict us as we humbly seek. We come from various traditions and backgrounds but we are enamored by Jesus and long to follow Him more fully with our lives. (John 16:13-15)
We desire to be a thankful people
We realize that we are not deserving of restoration nor second chances but we believe in a God who forgives. We are thankful that this forgiveness does not depend on our faithfulness or our effort. We believe that forgiveness is offered through the work of Christ and He is the one who liberates and reconciles us back to Himself. (Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 4:1)
