Jesus Christ is the resurrected Lord, and salvation is by grace through faith in Him.
The Holy Spirit works in the lives of all believers.
The Bible is God's Word and is the authority for faith and for life.
Each church is autonomous and self-governing, and we acknowledge Christ as the head of the church.
Believers are priests before God, but we are called to Christian community in the body of Christ.
We are called to Jesus' mission and to reach out around the world with His love expressed in words and in deeds.
The State and Church should be separate, and all people deserve religious liberty.
