WE BELIEVE that we are created and loved by the only true God. God reveals Himself to us in Holy Scripture as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three persons and yet one God. WE BELIEVE that in the beginning God created the entire universe and everything in it by the power of His Word. WE BELIEVE that God loves all people and desires an intimate relationship with us. However human beings, beginning with Adam and Eve and continuing through history to each of us, have broken that relationship with God by our sin (missing the mark of perfection which God requires). We would all be lost forever, but... WE BELIEVE that, in spite of our sin, God continues to love us. Because of His love, He sent His only Son, Jesus, to rescue us from our lost condition. Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, crucified and died in our place (Good Friday), and raised again on the third day (Easter Sunday).
