🧱 Theological Foundations

The Bible

The Bible is God’s special revelation to humanity, centering on the glory of God’s grace through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Therefore, as the word of God, the Bible alone is our ultimate authority for all of life, theologically, devotionally, and practically. 

Faith

People are reconciled to God, not by their own good works, but through faith alone in the good works of Jesus. Therefore, someone becomes a Christian not by doing for God, but by receiving from God. 

Grace

Salvation being through faith alone means that people are reconciled to God by grace alone through the voluntary, vicarious, substitutionary death of Jesus. Therefore, the Christian’s standing before God is a gift, not a reward. 

Jesus Christ

Our only hope of forgiveness, righteousness, and eternal life is gained through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, not by any merit or effort of our own. 

The Glory of God

The goal of our theology is that God alone would receive the glory for redeeming, adopting, and empowering sinners with new life. Therefore, there is no room for self-righteousness in the gospel, but only for boasting in the cross of Jesus.
