What's it like to be a Christian?

Christians believe something unique.

We believe that God has broken into our world, changed us by His grace and set us free to become the people He created us to be.

Faith leads to transformation, and transformation leads to action.

The Bible is God’s Word to Man, is completely true, and is the sole authority for Christian faith and practice.

There is only one true living God who eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God created and sustains all things.

Jesus Christ is the promised Messiah of the Old Testament, fully God and fully man. He led a sinless life, died as a substitute for our sins, was buried, and rose again in victory over death. He will one day return to reign eternally.

The Holy Spirit is sent from God to convict the world of sin and draw men to Jesus Christ. He gives each Christian direction and power for living and understanding of Scripture.

God knew what he was doing from the very beginning. He decided from the outset to shape the lives of those who love him along the same lines as the life of his Son. The Son stands first in the line of humanity he restored. We see the original and intended shape of our lives there in him. Romans 8:28-29

Faith is not a mental exercise to believe the impossible, believing what we know is not true. It is not believing ‘something’ at all. Faith is trust in God. It is personal. In the Gospels Jesus never talks about believing something will happen, a miracle perhaps, but always about believing Him. Our destiny rests on faith. We are saved by faith. “Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life.” John 3:36. The God we are to trust in is worthy as the God who loved us and gave His Son to bear our sins on the cross.
