We believe the Bible is inspired by God and fully trustworthy. Many books are inspiring, but only Scripture is inspired. Therefore, Scripture is our ultimate guide concerning what we believe and how we live. Though we respect church tradition and value personal experience, God's word is our final authority. That is why we attempt to base all our doctrines, decisions, and acts of devotion on God's word. Though we do not worship the Bible, we do worship the Triune God as he is understood and revealed in the Bible. With the help of the Holy Spirit, we interpret Scripture and apply it to our lives as a church family. We believe that Jesus extends grace to everyone and that we should follow in his steps. Who are we to pass judgment and not extend grace, when we ourselves have sinned. We believe we should love the sinner, not banish them.
