A place to come away, meet God, and be renewed.

Our Beliefs (Statement of Faith)
1. The only true God, the almighty Creator of all things, existing eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. Jesus Christ, fully human and fully divine, who lived as a perfect example, who assumed the judgment due sinners by dying in our place, and who was bodily raised from the dead and ascended as Savior and Lord.
3. The Bible as God’s word to all, written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Justification by God’s grace to all who repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ alone for salvation.
4. The indwelling presence and transforming power of the Holy Spirit, who provides all believers with new life, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in treating others as we would like to be treated.
5. The value and dignity of all people - created in God’s image, embracing diversity, living in love with Him and others.
6. The unity of all believers in Jesus Christ, manifest in worship and spreading God’s word through love, study and action throughout the world.

Our Beliefs are Manifested by
Living Christ’s mission through words and works--to make God known; to proclaim His truth and grace; to make disciples; to exhibit His character through sacrificial living; and to responsibly care for God’s creation.
