Core BeliefsThis we believe … “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
- We believe that there is one true God. He has revealed Himself to us as one Triune God made up of three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- We believe that God created the world in six days using his almighty Word. We are not accidents of nature, but the creation of a powerful, wise and loving God who continues to be in control of this world.
- The first man and woman sinned against God. Now all people are born as sinners, unworthy of heaven.
- Out of love, God promised to send a Savior to rescue us from sin. God repeated that promise throughout the Old Testament and fulfilled that promise by sending Jesus.
- Jesus is both God and Man.
- Jesus died for all our sins and rose from the dead on Easter morning. Because of his sacrifice, we are forgiven of our sins
- We live Christian lives to thank God for graciously giving us forgiveness and eternal life.
- The Bible was written by the hands of men, but the Holy Spirit gave those men the words to record. This means the Bible is inspired by God and without error.
- The Holy Spirit works through the Word of God to create and strengthen faith in Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit strengthens faith through the Sacraments of Holy Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
- Someday, Jesus will come to earth to judge everyone — the living and the dead. All who believe in Jesus can have the confidence that they will live forever with him in heaven.

Vision“By every possible means we bring every person in our area of influence closer to Christ.”
The world around is constantly changing. That’s why our approach to ministry and our communication methods will change. Yet our message remains the same: Jesus has given us freedom from our sins. Jesus has called us to live as a family of believers loving God and loving each other. We will do everything we can to help people grow closer to Jesus and the freedom he gives.
