Our Beliefs

As a church, we have agreed that ten core values are at the heart of our life and work together. In setting forth our core values, we declare our ties with true Christians of all times and every place. We confess with them the faith as embodied in the Apostle's Creed and the Nicene Creed. We recognize that these values are rooted in our history and doctrine. In broad strokes they convey the essential beliefs of our denomination as stated in our Articles of Faith and Doctrine.

We present these ten core values to help you to better understand the Brethren in Christ. In ten concise statements, these are the values which touch our hearts, stir our emotions, and move us to action!


Experiencing God's Love and Grace

We value the free gift of salvation in Christ Jesus and the transforming power of the Holy Spirit.

Believing the Bible

We value the Bible as God's authoritative Word, study it together, and build our lives on its truth.

Worshiping God

We value heartfelt worship that is God-honoring, Spirit-directed, and life-changing.

Following Jesus

We value whole hearted obedience to Christ Jesus through the empowering presence of the Holy Spirit.

Belonging to the Community of Faith

We value integrity in relationships and mutual accountability in an atmosphere of grace, love, and acceptance.

Witnessing to the World

We value an active and loving witness for Christ to all people.

Serving Compassionately

We value serving others at their point of need, following the example of our Lord Jesus.

Pursuing Peace

We value all human life and promote forgiveness, understanding, reconciliation, and non-violent resolution of conflict.

Living Simply

We value uncluttered lives, which free us to love boldly, give generously, and serve joyfully.

Relying on God

We confess our dependence on God for everything, and seek to deepen our intimacy with Him by living prayerfully.

Where?

A church is not a building.  A church is the group of people.  We gather together to help one another, love one another, and encourage one another.  Where we meet is just a building.  We call our building a “meeting house” because of this reason.  The church is the people transformed by Jesus Christ.

We look forward to meeting you!
