Our Doctrinal Commitments Our Identity Who we are is centered on God’s evangel, the gospel of Jesus Christ, who died and rose again to give us eternal life. Our Beliefs We believe in the triune God (Father, Son, and Spirit), the Bible as the authoritative, inerrant Word of God, and in the power of the Holy Spirit to save sinners fully and finally for the glory of God.

Personal The gospel testifies to the love, mercy, and grace of God to sinners. Its saving power transforms sinners into the image of Christ. Corporate The gospel creates a new community (the church) and influences fallen culture as believers live out their faith in the public square for the glory of God. Cosmic The gospel guarantees that evil will be dealt with fully and finally, justice will be carried out, and the world will be made new in the return of Christ. The Implications of the Gospel
