What we believe
What we believe
We believe in the inspiration, authority, and power of the Scriptures in the Old and New Testaments. We affirm the mystery of the Trinity—one God in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We affirm the WEA statement of faith, as well as The Lausanne Covenant.
Things are not alright. Since Adam and Eve, all the world is broken and everyone except Jesus is separated from God. Everyone has the same need for food, freedom, and forgiveness, but our broken relationships with each other and with God restrict our access to these necessary things.
Jesus is the only hope for all the world. His words, works, and ways guide all we do. Our continual focus is to abide in him. Our path is not a new one. It’s both ancient and future. The way was inaugurated by Jesus who walks with us.
Out of love for all the world, Jesus provided the way for us to be restored to our intended relationship to God by taking our sins upon himself on the cross. In his death and resurrection, Jesus destroys the works of the evil one. Only Jesus provides eternal salvation and is the foundation of forgiveness. He is making all things new.
Only Jesus can transform lives and communities, but he invites us to join with him in his work. We will not separate mission and compassion, because Jesus doesn’t. Transformed lives lead to transformed communities, and transformed communities lead to transformed lives.
