What We Believe
In essential beliefs ~ we have unity
"There is one body and one Spirit...one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all".
In non-essential beliefs ~ we have liberty
"Accept the one whose faith is weak, without passing judgment over disputable matters... Who are you to judge someone else's servant? To their own master, servants stand or fall. So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God...So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God."
In all our beliefs ~ we show charity
"...If I hold in my mind only all human knowledge but also the very secrets of God, and if I have the faith that can move mountains-but have no love, I amount to nothing at all."
I Corinthians 13:2(ph)
The Essentials We Believe

God created the universe as outlined in the Bible and He remains in charge of all things.
(Genesis1:1-25; Colossians 1:15-17)
God eternally exists as ONE GOD, revealed to be Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Both three and one, As one touches the corner of a triangle, one has touched but one shape so then as we come in contact with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, we have come in contact with God.
