What We believe

We are a Christian Church committed to the core teachings of historical Christianity. While maintaining unity around these core beliefs, we recognize the wide variety of ways they are expressed depending on our various backgrounds and traditions. As much as possible, we celebrate both our unity and our diversity. 

The core teachings of Christianity that unify us are expressed most clearly in the Apostles’ Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Nicaean Creed. 


We believe in one God who has revealed Himself in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Our God created all things, including humans, to be in relationship with Himself. However, sin has broken our relationships with God, self, others, and creation.


We believe that Jesus is both fully man and fully God. As the Christ, Jesus fulfilled all the Old Testament prophecies about a Messiah who would redeem God’s people. He is “the Way, the Truth, and the Life” and salvation is found in Him alone. We believe the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus are grounded in historical fact. We anticipate that one day He will return to finish the work of redemption and make all things new.

The Holy Spirit

We believe that God gives believers His Holy Spirit, which is His very presence at work within us. Through the Spirit, God leads, guides, and empowers believers for ministry. Believers can grow in their relationship with the Holy Spirit through prayer and spiritual disciplines. 

The Bible

We believe that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God. It contains all that people in any age need to know for their salvation. We call the Bible God’s Word, believing that, by the power of the Holy Spirit, God speaks to us through this book.

The Church

​We believe that God created us for community, and that He has called His people to practise their faith as part of a larger community known as the Church. The Church is the Body of Christ called to actively care for one another, bring healing to the brokenness of our world, and point people to the truth of Jesus by the leading and power of the Holy Spirit.
