10:30am & 6:30pm
This word has no equal because it is...
...inspired by God the Holy Spirit who caused many different men to write it over a long period of time
...infallible in that it is a completely reliable and trustworthy book
...inerrant, meaning that whatever is revealed in it is without error, contradiction, or misrepresentation
...sufficient because it fully contains the will of God and reveals all that we need to believe in order to be saved
This word represents the final rule of faith and life in our church.
We believe that God is triune. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are at the same time three and one.
God created the universe and everything in it. He created humans in His image.
Since the fall into sin of the first humans, Adam and Eve, we are all born sinful. We also commit new sins every day. Sin has separated humanity from God.
Jesus Christ came to earth, born of the virgin Mary, to redeem humanity from the power of sin.
Jesus Christ sacrificed Himself on the cross to rescue us from the power of sin. Christ’s death and resurrection conquered sin and restored the relationship between humanity and God, which we were powerless to do on our own.
Christ’s death brought about God’s gift of salvation, a display of His wonderful mercy and grace. Salvation is given to all who believe in their heart and confess with their mouth that Jesus is their Saviour, and repent of their sins. We are unable to do this without the work of the Holy Spirit, who lives in our hearts and strengthens, guides, and motivates us to believe in and to live for Christ.
God calls Christians to join a community of believers where we can gather together to worship Him, to be encouraged and built up through the preaching of God’s word and the sacraments, and witness to our neighbours. Believers are called to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people and to serve God in all aspects of life.
Christ will return one day to judge humanity. He will cleanse the earth of sickness and sin and his children will live with him forever.
This means that we hold to the five following principles, sometimes referred to as the five solas:
By Scripture Alone
The Bible is the authority in all things; it is the inspired Word of God and all our teachings and beliefs must be found within it.
By Grace Alone
We can do nothing to earn our salvation; Jesus Christ earned it for us! God grants us salvation solely out of His love and grace.
By Faith Alone
The only way for us to receive the gift of salvation is through faith in Christ.
Through Christ Alone
Jesus Christ is the only path to salvation. He stands as mediator between us and God.
Glory to God Alone
We desire to honour and glorify God above all people and traditions and we want to see our triune God receive all honour and praise!
Our beliefs can be summarized in the following creeds and confessions. We consider these documents to be faithful summaries of the word of God. however, they do not possess the divine authority that scripture possesses. The creeds and confessions are always subject to and are tested by the word of God.
