Mission Statement

Becoming Disciples to Make Disciples

 

What We Believe

We believe the Bible tells us the Truth about God and ourselves. The Bible, the Old and New Testament, are the authoritative Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine and conduct.

 

We believe it is necessary to choose to enter into a personal relationship with God. When a person puts their trust in God’s Son, Jesus Christ, they enter into a living relationship with God that brings forgiveness and gives new purpose to life.

 

We believe the church is made up of believers in Christ. The church is a community of believers in Christ whose common faith provides motivation to worship God and work towards bringing God’s Good News to people.

 

We believe God is at work in and through us. God, by His Holy Spirit, gathers the church into being, empowers witness, guides its mission, and supplies the talents and gifts that are needed to honor and serve Jesus Christ.

 

We believe Jesus Christ gives us freedom to be responsible with our lives. Jesus Christ, through His death and resurrection, has delivered us from the power of sin and death, and moves us into an entirely new experience of obedience and life. We use this freedom to live responsibly before God, allowing for differences of opinion and practice within biblical guidelines.

 

Our Denomination

We are a member church of both the Northwest Conference of Covenant Churches and the Evangelical Covenant Church of America, the denominational family to which we belong.
