We believe, teach and confess that there is only one true God, the Triune God; who exists in three separate but equal persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God, the Father, is our maker and the creator of all things. By the Father’s word, all things were made, and we are His most beloved creation. We are closest to His heart. The Son is Jesus Christ, who came to earth in human form as the perfect go-between between God and humanity. By His suffering, death on a cross and His resurrection, He has redeemed us and is the voice to the Father on our behalf. The Holy Spirit calls us to believe in Jesus Christ as our Savior, instills faith in our hearts, keeps us in the one true faith, and equips us for living out our faith. He is the whisper in our heart’s ear.
Sola Scriptura (Scripture Alone) – The Bible is the inspired Word of
God and the final judge of all doctrine and practice in the Church and in the lives of Christians. The law shows us our sin and the Gospel shows us our Savior.
Sola Gratia (Grace Alone) – Grace is a gift to us from the Father. Jesus takes our sin and damnation as we repent and we receive His grace, forgiveness, life and salvation through faith of what He has done. There is nothing we can do to earn this grace. “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast.”. (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Sola Fide (Faith Alone) – Faith is a gift worked in us by the power of the
Holy Spirit. It doesn’t come to us through anything we are capable of. We can’t buy it or earn it on our own. It comes only through what God does for us. We simply receive what is being offered out of God’s great love.
