We believe that a careful examination of the doctrines that define our faith and practice is essential to both the purity and unity of the church. If we are not aligned theologically it will be difficult, if not impossible, to accomplish God’s plan and purpose for our church. After all, what we genuinely believe about will undoubtedly shape how we behave and interact with others. We recognize that all biblical truth is significantly important, however, we also recognize that “for now, see in a mirror dimly” (1 Corinthians 13:12) and do not have truth in perfect revelation.
In an effort to reconcile these two truths while mainlining the purity and unity of the faith, we characterize our beliefs into two groups: non-negotiable doctrines (those doctrines that people must be in agreement with in order to join our church) and negotiable doctrines (those doctrines that people can have different opinions or positions on and still be a member of our church, as long as they don’t cause division within the church by making this an issue of salvation or by forcing their views on others).
Our statement of faith represents our core beliefs; those non-negotiable doctrines that people must be in agreement with in order to join our church. View our full statement of faith.
