Love - We are a family of believers who accept each other because God has accepted us.
The Bible - The Bible is inspired and is the final authority in life and doctrine. The Bible reveals one true God existing as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, each possessing the attributes of deity.
Grace - Salvation is the free gift of God. The only sufficient payment for our sins is the death of Christ as our substitute. No one is saved by his own merits or good deeds.
Response - It is necessary to respond to God's free offer of salvation by faith, repentance, and baptism. As we confess Christ as our LORD and are baptized by immersion, God meets us, forgives our sins and gives us the gift of the Holy Spirit that empowers each of us.
Unity - While avoiding entanglement in the creeds and traditions, we make a diligent effort to follow Christ. The original followers of Christ (the 1st century church) provide an inspiring model of lifestyle, worship, doctrine, and organization that, in principle, is to be followed in our century.
Ministry - God gives us abilities that we are to use in service to one another and the world. We do not work and serve to be saved, rather to express our gratitude for God's gift of eternal life.
