• We believe that Jesus is God’s living revelation of Himself and that to know God, we must know Jesus. Jesus is the Son of God, and we believe that he is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. He is fully God and fully Human.

  • We believe that the Holy Spirit gives gifts and abilities and that every man, woman, or child who belongs to Jesus has equal worth in the church and uniquely contributes to serving God. The Holy Spirit resides in us to give us a personal relationship with God.

  • We believe that the fundamental challenge in human life is the issue of sin, leading to separation from God. While we acknowledge the reality of psychological and physical issues, they often stem from this underlying problem. Whether sin impacts a person in a general sense or in more specific ways, it lies at the core of life's challenges, overshadowing other issues.

  • We believe that Jesus died on the cross to take our guilt on Himself so that by our faith in Him, we can be free from the guilt and alienation that goes with sin. Not only does this free us to know God and have eternal life, but it also frees us from sin's power to control our attitudes and actions. We can live each day in victory and joy through salvation in Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in the church as the living Body of Christ on earth. All true believers, whatever their church, location, or time in history, are members of the universal or spiritual kingdom of God, the Church. A local church, like ours, is the building block of the Church Universal like the nuclear family is to the human race. We are a committed community of believers made up of all ages, backgrounds, and abilities.

  • 1) Outreach

    We will reach every person on Orcas Island so they can learn of God’s love in word and deed in a language and way they can understand.

    2) Worship

    We will accommodate a broader range of worship, musical and learning styles. We will also offer unitive opportunities that celebrate them all together.

    3) Congregational Life

    We will strengthen our local congregation so that under Christ we can more effectively build up our body to maturity as we speak the truth in love and serve each other and our community.

    4) Stewardship

    Under Christ’s Lordship, we will be good stewards of our resources all of which come from God and belong to God.
