What We Believe
Our Vision Statement: To see the Gospel embraced and passed on for generations of Kingdom impact.
Our Mission Statement: At Peace Church, we are Gospel-Centered, Family-Focused, and Kingdom-Minded.
Gospel - The gospel is the good news that although we have sinned and fallen short of God’s perfect standard (Rom 3:23) and therefore deserve eternal death (Rom 6:23), God sent his only Son Jesus Christ to live the perfect life we couldn’t live, die the death for sin we deserved to die, and rise to life so that by faith we can have eternal life with him (John 3:16).
Bible - Although we can summarize the main message of the gospel in a sentence, really the whole Bible is the story of the gospel - the story of God saving his people.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word (2 Tim 3:16) and therefore that it is without error and the highest authority in our lives.
Mission - God made it clear that the mission of every Christian church is to make disciples of Jesus (Matt 28:18-20). We have been given the life-saving message of the gospel, and we must take it to the world, preaching and praying for the lost to be saved by faith in Christ.
The Family of the Home - God designed the family as the primary place where discipleship happens (Deut 6:4-9). A strong church and society is built around healthy families seeking to follow Jesus together. We believe in the sanctity of marriage, the sanctity of human life including unborn human lives, and we seek to invest in creating healthy marriages and families.
The Family of the Church - God calls the church to operate not merely as an organization, but as a family - the family of faith. We care for each other, encourage each other, and challenge each other, as we seek to follow Jesus together.
The Kingdom of God is wherever knees and hearts are bowing to the King. It is not just happening at Peace Church. We seek to reach our community with the gospel, plant more churches who preach the gospel, and send missionaries to the ends of the world to preach the gospel.

While creeds/confessions/catechisms are not the Bible, they are helpful resources to help us explain and teach what the Bible says. Peace Church holds to what has been called the Three Forms of Unity, the historic Christian creeds of the Belgic Confession, the Heidelberg Catechism, and the Canons of Dort.
