We believe in the universal church. The church of Jesus Christ is a living spiritual body of which Christ is the head. All who believed in the atoning work of the cross and received the forgiveness offered by Christ are members of his church, regardless of denominational affiliation.
We believe the local church is a community of faith, believers in Jesus Christ, associated for worship, work, and fellowship. We believe that in and through the local church, God will continue to advance His kingdom, perform wonders and miraculous signs, and fulfill the great Commission as we live and minister in obedience to the Great Commandment.
We believe religious liberty, rooted in Scripture, is the inalienable right of all individuals to freedom of conscience with ultimate accountability to God. Church and state exist by the will of God. Each has distinctive concerns and responsibilities, free from control by the other.
We believe that, in essentials, we should have unity. In non-essentials, we should have liberty. In all our beliefs, we should demonstrate charity.
