As members of the Christian Church, we confess that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, and proclaim him Lord and Savior of the world.
In Christ's name and by his grace we accept our mission of witness and service to all people.
We rejoice in God, maker of heaven and earth, and in God’s covenant of love which binds us to God and to one another.
Through baptism into Christ, we enter into newness of life and are made one with the whole people of God.
In the communion of the Holy Spirit, we are joined together in discipleship and in obedience to Christ.
At the table of the Lord, we celebrate with thanksgiving the saving acts and presence of Christ.
Within the universal church, we receive the gift of ministry and the light of scripture.
In the bonds of Christian faith, we yield ourselves to God that we may serve the One whose kingdom has no end.
Blessing, glory, and honor be to God forever. Amen.
In essential beliefs - we have unity
There is one body and one Spirit-just as you were called to one hope when you were called-one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all, (Ephesians 4:4-6).
In non-essential beliefs - we have liberty
Accept him whose faith is weak, without passing judgment on disputable matters… Who are you to judge someone else’s servant? …So then, each of us will give an account of himself to God… So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and God,(Romans 14:1, 4, 12, 22).
In all our beliefs - we have charity
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing, (1 Corinthians 13:2).
