The beliefs that you hold most solidly form the structure for your worldview. They are the foundation stones upon which the building stands.
The Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe that it is both true and trustworthy. It is thereby ultimately authoritative in our lives. This belief affects all others. It informs what we believe about God, Jesus, Sin, Man, Life Love, Marriage, Money, etc.
We believe in one God, the sovereign Creator and Sustainer of all things, infinitely perfect and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son & Spirit.
We believe that God is both big and close....He is the powerful creator that is intimately knowable and involved in your life. We also believe that He is both Just and Loving.....He requires righteousness and punishes sin while simultaneously providing that which he requires.
You are created in the image of God. You were created to enjoy God and enjoy the world around you. Unfortunately we all have an intrinsic sinful nature that puts us at enmity with God. However, in an act of grace and love, God provided a way for our sins to be forgiven and for us to be declared righteous in His sight. We believe that Jesus died on the cross to make atonement for sins and that he was resurrected for the justification of His people.
Life is meant to be enjoyed and lived to the full. God intends for us to experience a deep, abiding peace. He provides a way for our deepest hopes to be realized. Unfortunately, sin separates us from God and robs us of the best that He intends....peace, security, joy & significance. Once God has restored you to himself, through faith in Jesus, the rest of life goes through a process of restoration. God restores all of life back to the way it was intended to be....life with a deep sense of security and significance....Life in community with other people..... Life lived with a purpose.
God is in the process of restoring all things back to the way they were intended to be. There will come a day when Jesus fulfills His promise of making all things new. The Bible speaks of a new heaven and a new earth that is free of sin and its effects. Until then, we enjoy the restoration of God in our own lives while looking forward to the restoration that is to come.
