We believe the message of the Church that goes back to the teachings of Jesus and the apostles, as we read about them in the New Testament. We believe that God has spoken truthfully in the Bible, and we want to live in submission to His words.
- He has told us that he alone is the Creator of everything.
- He has told us that our first parents broke their relationship with him through their disobedience and rebellion, bringing curse and destruction into his perfect creation.
- He has told us that he has orchestrated a plan of redemption to bring people back to a relationship with him. In the most mysterious and amazing way, Jesus reversed the curse on the creation, taking the punishment for sin upon himself and giving his people forgiveness and eternal life.
- He has told us that Jesus will return and renew the whole world, conquering evil and bringing perfect wholeness to all who believe in him.
We stand in the Reformed tradition as a member of the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA), and a member church in the Chesapeake Presbytery of the PCA. We hold that a helpful system to understand the Bible is contained in the historic Westminster Confession of Faith.
