We believe the Bible to be true and centered on the person and work of Jesus Christ. It is our final authority in doctrine and life. The preaching, teaching, and personal study of God’s Word leads to life transformation, and we build our lives and our church on this firm foundation.
As followers of Christ, who graciously loved all, we celebrate our rich diversity. We invite and welcome all those who seek to discover God’s Truth to join us on this journey of faith. We make every effort to display a warm, accepting, non-judgmental spirit toward all – to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
The heart of the Christian faith is restored relationships, with God and with others. Because we are one in Christ, we listen with open ears and compassionate hearts. We look for ways to strengthen one another. We rejoice with those who rejoice, mourn with those who mourn, and encourage those who struggle. With a servant’s heart, we seek ways to put hands and feet to our love.
We are loved with the great love of God, and we respond with astonished joy. We celebrate life’s goodness and seek to meet trials with the knowledge of the richness of God’s faithfulness to us. The joy we experience in Christ is our motivation for both grateful living and a loving, engaging witness to the world.
As sinners redeemed by grace alone, we follow the example of our Lord Jesus, who lived among us as a servant and laid down His life for us. As members and leaders of Faith Church, we offer our time and gifts as a form of service to one another, following His model of sacrificial love.
We strive to exhibit lives that clearly and consistently demonstrate the love of Christ to those around us. We heed His call to be holy, to pursue peace, and to work for justice in our world. We eagerly and authentically share our faith with others.
Committed to a growing, intimate relationship with God, we devote ourselves to regular times of personal and communal prayer. Prayer is foundational to our ministry and mission. We expect and experience the Spirit’s action in response to our prayers.
Recognizing God as the owner of all we have, we live as faithful stewards of the time, talents, and treasures He has placed in our care. All of life is to be lived for God’s glory, as worship and service offered to Christ our Lord.
