What Do We Believe?
We believe that everyone has a unique relationship with God, that everyone has the unfettered freedom of individual conscience, and that we can respect many different beliefs and understandings of God. Having said that, we can generally agree on several things.
If you have more questions after reading this, feel free to email, call or visit our Pastor.
One True and Living God
God is love! God wants us to fall in love with the Lord. God longs for us to have a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. God seeks right relationships with everyone—whoever you are, whatever you are, however you are becoming—and encourages us to have life-sustaining relationships. God created the universe and everything in it, and God is still at work in our lives today. No darkness is so great that God's Light is not greater. Jesus Christ came to open up a way "home" to God, and dying on the cross demonstrated God's sacrificial love for us. By rising again, Jesus gives us hope and power to live life for God.
God's Custom Relationship
There's no one like you! God knows that and wants to be our "life-coach." God coaches each of us to become the person we are meant to be in Jesus Christ. No one can come between us and God. Congregationalists have always strongly advocated following Jesus Christ as our individual consciences dictate.
The Bible — Our Guide for Life
Inspired by God, the Bible captures the essence of all Truth. While God can (and often does) reveal Himself directly, the Bible is the most authoritative witness we have, not only about the history of God's people but about who God is, how God works, and how we should live in light of all God does for us.
CARING COMMUNITY IS NECESSARY FOR GROWTH
Community gives faith purpose and focus. Being a part of our church family means being surrounded by a group of caring people who help us up when we fall and give us opportunities to serve God. As we serve others are are served in return, we continually grow in Christ who came to serve others.
United by Our Covenant
Diversity is a primary strength of Congregationalism. We combine our different gifts and understandings of God as we walk and work together. Our covenant unites us and directs our efforts. This is our covenant:
We are united in striving to know the will of God as taught in the Holy Scriptures and in our purpose to walk in the ways of the Lord, made known or to be made known to us. We hold it to be the mission of the Church of Christ to proclaim the gospel to all humankind, exalting the worship of the one true God and laboring for all progress of knowledge, the promotion of justice, the reign of peace, and the realization of human community. Depending, as did our parents upon the continued guidance of the Holy Spirit to lead us into all truth, we work and pray for the transformation of the world into the Kingdom of God; and we look with faith for the triumph of righteousness and the life everlasting.
