- We believe in the triune God. In other words, God is one God, yet revealed in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Belief in the Trinity — God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit — is central to the faith. God is the Father to whom we come, the Son through whom we come, and the Spirit by whom we come. The doctrine of the Trinity teaches belief in one God who exists as three “persons” with the word “person” having a different meaning from common usage today. The word comes from the Latin “persona” meaning the mask through which actors spoke in Greek plays; and this word was derived from the Latin words “per” and “sonare” meaning to speak or sound through. The original meaning of the word shows we are concerned not with a mask that hides, but with a medium that reveals. The one God comes to us in three modes. The doctrine of the Trinity arises from all that the Bible tells us about God as the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sustainer. The New Testament writers portray Je
sus through his words and actions as divine and the Son of God.
- We believe that the Bible is the written revelation of who God is.
- We believe that it is important to gather weekly for worship and to also regularly experience the sacraments of communion.
- We believe that Baptism is a visible sign of God’s promise to God’s people.
