Statement of Ministry
Messiah… a Place to Belong – Reflecting the Love of Jesus as we are Growing and Serving.
We believe the Bible to be the inspired, authoritative, and infallible Word of God.We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe that we are all sinners and cannot be restored to fellowship with God by any power of our own. That through grace God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world to die on the cross for our sins, and that Jesus rose from the dead and is now our Mediator with the Father.
We believe that God will accept all who repent of their sins and believe that the finished work of Jesus is the only basis of salvation.
We believe that God provides a covenant relationship with us from generation to generation.
We believe in the unity of the body of Christ. We are each unique, with needs and abilities answering to the needs and abilities of one another. We are attempting to practice God’s love, forgiveness, truth, and patience in our relationships.
