Demographic: Multi-cultural
Statement Of Faith: Statement of Faith

God is the Creator, Ruler, and Sustainer of the universe. There is only one true, holy God; He exists eternally as three individuals: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Each is fully God yet personally distinct from the other. God has a profound love for humankind as the only creatures made in His image, wants the best for us, and has initiated a plan enabling us to live in a personal relationship with Him.

Jesus Christ is the eternal Son of God, fully God and fully man. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead on the third day to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven's glory and will return again to reign in ultimate supremacy forever.

The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are all equally God. The Holy Spirit is the agent of regeneration and renewal for believers in Jesus Christ, and lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with the ability to live a life that honors God, an understanding of spiritual truth, the power to be Christ's witness, and guidance in doing what is right. The Christian seeks to live under the Holy Spirit’s control daily.

Salvation is a gift from God to sinful humankind. We can never make up for our sin through self-improvement or good works, and even our best efforts leave us unable to earn God's favor. Salvation of humankind is therefore completely a work of God's free grace—not the result of human effort or goodness—and therefore must be personally appropriated by repentance and faith. Only by trusting in Jesus as our Savior and inviting Him to rule our lives can we be freed from sin's penalty and receive eternal life with God.
