WHAT WE BELIEVE 

Our beliefs are found in the Apostle's Creed, the 25 Articles of Faith of John Wesley, and the Confession of Faith of the Evangelical United Brethren Church.  They can be summarized as follows:

THE TRINITY

We believe in one God who eternally exists in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

THE SCRIPTURES

We believe in the Holy Bible, which is revealed in the sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments.  The Bible is regarded as authoritative and inspired by the Holy Spirit.

SIN

 

We believe humanity has been separated from God by sin and this has affected all of humankind.  

REDEMPTION

Redemption and forgiveness of sin is found totally and exclusively in the grace of God through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

THE CHURCH

The Church is God's universal body that exists as God's community of believers under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

THE FUTURE

Everyone will stand under the righteous judgement of Christ, both now and in the last day.  All believers will spend eternity with God and the wicked will be sent to eternal condemnation.

THE SACRAMENTS

 

We believe in two sacraments, Baptism and Communion. 

 

Baptism in water represents God washing away our sins through Jesus Christ.  This can be celebrated by sprinkling, pouring, and immersion.  

Communion is celebrated with wine or juice, and bread.  This represents the sacrifice that Christ has made for us with his body and blood.  All who desire a relationship with Christ are invited to participate.
