What We Believe

We believe it is possible to simply be a Christian, not a particular kind of Christian but merely a follower of Jesus Christ.

We are interdenominational and deliberately seek to focus on what unites, namely Jesus Christ, rather than on what could separate.

While we have much in common with evangelical churches, we believe that qualifying terms such as "Bible Believing", "Conservative" or "Evangelical" serve to cause division within the body of Christ and so we choose not to use any of these phrases to describe ourselves. We acknowledge the work of the great reformers like Luther, Calvin, Knox and others, but do not imitate any single denomination but rather rely solely on New Testament teachings as a model for Christian worship.

Our only creed is that Jesus Christ is the son of the living God and He alone is Lord and Savior. We believe that the Church belongs to Christ and that we have no authority to change the teaching, rewrite the rules or alter the membership requirements. As much as possible we imitate the New Testament precedents. While we seek to apply biblical truth intelligently our approach to God is not dry and solely intellectual, we rejoice, praise, pray, love and serve from the heart.
