  • what we believe

                                  Our WORSHIP:  We believe in ONE GOD, Father, Son & Holy Spirit.

    We believe in one God who created all things.  He has revealed Himself as our Father, His Son Jesus Christ and as the Holy Spirit.  He is love, full of mercy and grace, and is worthy of our worship and praise.  (Colossians 1:16-17; Matthew 28:19; Psalm 145:3)   Our RESPONSE:  We are Christ-centered and dedicated to loving God with all our hearts, minds and souls. We come humbly and joyfully to worship, praising God through song, coming together in prayer and hearing the Word preached.

    His WORD:  The unchanging and true Word of God.

    We believe the Bible to be trustworthy and true. It is the God-inspired, without error, unchanging Word of God. His Word is the only authority for salvation and Christian living. It is through the Bible that we know God.  (2 Timothy 3:16-17)  Our RESPONSE:   We learn God's Word and store it in our hearts because God speaks to us through His Word, the Bible. The Bible is useful for instruction, correction and encouragement to equip us for His good work.

    Our WITNESS:  Love God, love others.

    We believe in the work of the Holy Spirit to transform all believers to live more like Christ each day. We believe that God has given every Christian qualities to be used to make Him known to others. It is with these gifts that we are united as the body of Christ working together in service to share His love here on earth, all to His glory!  (2 Corinthians 3:18; 1 Corinthians 12:5-7)  Our RESPONSE:  Our witness is to recognize what God is doing for us and pass it on to others through words and actions. We do this freely, out of love and gratitude for all that God has done for us. We serve by caring for our Christ Our King family, our local community and for people around the world. We want to share the hope that we have in God with others.

    His WORKS:  This is all God's Work.  A free gift.

    We believe that God created Adam and Eve in His image to live with Him; but they sinned when tempted by Satan. Sin brought death and separation from God, so He sent His Son Jesus to take the punishment for our sin. Jesus died, was buried, and rose again for us, conquering sin and death.   Salvation comes by grace through faith in this sacrifice of Jesus for us. Only through God's saving grace and the work of Jesus Christ can we be rescued from sin, brought back to God, renewed, and live eternally with Him. In the person of the Holy Spirit, God works through repentance, baptism and communion. (Ephesians 2:8-9; Genesis 1:3; John 3:16)  OUR RESPONSE:  We love God with all our heart, soul and mind; we love our neighbors as ourselves.  (Matthew 22:37-39)
