What We Believe

Sola Gratia – Grace Alone

We believe that salvation is a free gift from a gracious God and we can do nothing to earn our salvation. (Ephesians 2:8-9)

Sola Fide – Faith Alone

We believe the gift of eternal life and salvation is based entirely on God’s grace, through faith in Jesus Christ. (John 14:6 and 1 Corinthians 12:3)

Sola Scriptura – Scripture Alone

We believe the Bible is the completely trustworthy Word of God written in human language and thought forms, but with God’s very Breath of Truth, providing us with what we need for life today, and life forever. (Romans 10:17, 2 Timothy 3:14-16, and Hebrews 4:12)

Sola Christus – Christ Alone

We celebrate two Sacraments – Holy Baptism and Holy Communion – as the means by which Christ connects us to Himself and to others. These Sacraments provide the gifts of forgiveness, faith, and eternal life through Jesus Christ. (Romans 6:3-11, Titus 3:5-6, and 1 Corinthians 10:16-17)

We believe that we are saved by Grace through Faith, not from ourselves, but as a gift from God. In that, we as God’s own people, exist to yield unto the Lord God with “all our heart, with all our soul, and with all our mind” as He calls us to come to Him, to be built into a spiritual House of God, to be a Holy Priesthood of believers, to offer spiritual worship acceptable to God through Jesus Christ, to proclaim the wonderful acts of God. (1 Peter 2:4-5, Ephesians 2:8)
