Our Belief


God, who is one, is revealed in three distinct persons.

LORD Jesus Christ

We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death, and resurrection demonstrate God’s redeeming love.

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst. When we sense God’s leading, God’s challenge, or God’s support or comfort, it’s the Holy Spirit at work.

The Church

The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ’s life and ministry in the world today. 

The Sacred Scripture

We believe that the Bible is the primary authority for our faith and practice.

God’s Reign

The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
