What We Believe

Having been led by the Holy Spirit to receive Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and having professed our faith, and having been baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, we affirm our desire to enter into covenant with one another as one body of Christ.

We Believe:
