At our core, we proclaim Christ crucified and resurrected. We believe the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, the revelation of God to His creation. We worship Jesus, and Jesus alone. We recite the Apostles' Creed on a regular basis as a body of believers, and it sums up nicely what our core beliefs are:

I believe in God, the Father almighty, 

Creator of heaven and earth.

I believe in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, our Lord,

who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, 

born of the virgin Mary, 

suffered under Pontius Pilate, 

was crucified, died, and was buried; 

he descended into hell. 

On the third day he rose again; 

he ascended into heaven, 

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,

and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Spirit, 

the holy catholic church, 

the communion of saints, 

the forgiveness of sins, 

the resurrection of the body, 

and the life everlasting. Amen.
