What We Believe

We believe....

I. There is only one God, who created all things, and He has revealed himself to mankind. 
(1 Corinthians 8:6, 1 Timothy 2:5, Genesis 1:1)

II. The Scriptures, comprised of the 66 canonical books of the Christian Bible, are our ultimate authority. They are God-given, true, and through them we can know and obey God.
(2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21, Psalm 119:160)

III. One God eternally exists in three persons. The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. There is one God.
(Genesis 1:1 & 26, 1 Corinthians 8:6, Ephesians 4:5-6)

IV. God the Father is the everlasting infinite perfect, personal, divine being who is the sovereign and rightful ruler of all that exists. He carries out all things in their proper time and order that they would consummate in Jesus Christ to reveal the supremacy of his name and purposes, and especially the greatness of His love.
(Psalm 139; Isaiah 55:10-11; Daniel 3:27, Matthew 4:4; Acts 17:24-31)

V. God the Holy Spirit is the divine agent by whom believers are born into the Kingdom of God. He empowers all believers to live a faithful and fruitful life on mission for the glory of God. He enables believers to live in union with God the Son and God the Father.
(John 14:16-17, 26; 15:27-27; 16:8-14; Romans 8:9, 12-13, 27-29)

VI. We, along with all of humanity (Jesus Christ excluded), are sinners by nature and choice.
(Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 3:10-18, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12, Colossians 1:21)

VII. The deserved penalty for sin is death, both physical and spiritual.
(Genesis 3:1-24, Romans 6:23a, James 1:14-15)

VIII. Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God who took on flesh and was born of a virgin, is both fully God and fully human.
(John 1:14, 1 Timothy 3:16, 1 John 4:2)

IX. Jesus Christ died as our substitute to pay the penalty for our sin.
(Romans 3:25, Galatians 3:13, 1 John 2:2)

X. Jesus Christ physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day return.
(Matthew 28:1-7, Mark 16:9-19, Luke 24:51, 1 Timothy 3:16, Hebrews 9:28, Colossians 3:1-4)

XI. Jesus Christ reigns and rules over his Church, which consists of all who have trusted in him for their salvation.
(Matthew 16:15-19, Galatians 3:28, Colossians 1:18)

XII. In a future physical resurrection of the dead, those who trust in Jesus Christ will be raised to an eternal life; those who have not trusted in Jesus Christ will be raised to eternal death.
(1 Corinthians 15:12-26 & 51-57, 1 Thessalonians 4:15-17, 2 Thessalonians 1:5-10)

XIII. Only by trusting in the person and work of Jesus Christ alone can we be reconciled to God, forgiven of our sins, and experience true life and joy.
(Ephesians 2:1-10)

XIV. Those who are redeemed and come to saving faith will never lose their salvation but will remain in him. They will never fall fully and completely away because God, by His grace, protects and preserves them.
(John 10:28-29; 17:11, 24; Romans 5:2-5, 12-16; 8:33-39)

What to Expect:


Welcome to Faith Church! We are really glad you've decided to worship with us. When you get here, feel free to grab some coffee or tea and join us for our service starting at 10:45. We want you to feel right at home, so please come as you are! Once the countdown ends, we will sing a few songs of worship and you are invited to join in with us!

Every Sunday, we focus on Jesus! Though there's a new sermon every week, the hero will always show up: Jesus! In His great love for us, He stepped down out of heaven and into humanity, lived a perfect life that we could never live, and died the death we deserved on the cross... bearing every bit of our sin and shame and guilt. But He didn't stay dead. On the third day He rose victorious over sin, death, and hell. That message is the Gospel and it's what we celebrate every time we gather!

If you have kiddos, we have a robust children's ministry full of volunteers that love Jesus and love the children God has given you. When you walk through the front door, you will see our secure check-in system and will be greeted by a ministry volunteer. They will direct you through the process and answer any questions you may have. For more info on our FaithKidz children's ministry, click here

Our Team

At Faith Church, we believe that there is only one Senior Pastor of the church: Jesus
(1 Peter 5:4). Jesus has given the role of under-shepherd to elders who serve as loving servants to seek the welfare of local congregations. In light of that, we are Jesus led, elder shepherded, deacon/staff-served, and congregationally responsible. In short, we pursue Jesus together as the Elders cast vision, work hand-in-hand with the staff and Deacons to accomplish that vision, and the congregation lives on mission while holding leadership accountable to the Scriptures.
