The gospel is the good news of God’s grace invading the darkness of this world. It is the grand narrative of creation, fall, redemption and consummation ordained by God and orchestrated through the life, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ. Jesus crucified is the heart of the gospel. His resurrection is the power of the gospel. His ascension is the glory of the gospel.
The following represents what we believe about the core elements of biblical teaching.
We believe in one God eternally existing as one essence and three distinct persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, each of whom is fully God, yet there is one God.
God has made Himself known to the world in Jesus Christ, the Scriptures and creation.
Creation and Providence
We believe that God created the world from nothing and governs all things at all times in all places.
We believe that all humanity is created in the image of God and possesses intrinsic dignity and worth.
We believe that sin has fractured all things, leaving the world in desperate need of salvation.
We believe that salvation is by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.
We believe that the Church is the body of Christ sent into the world to display the glory of God.
Resurrection and Consummation of the Kingdom of God
We believe that Jesus Christ is returning to the world in the future to judge the living and the dead.
