What we believe

First and foremost, we believe that Jesus is the foundation for time and eternity. At Foundation, we help will help you stand firm through life’s struggles and build strong for the future.

Jesus gives you direction for the day, strength for the struggles, and a rock-solid plan for your eternal future.  We’re here to help you build your life on him.
The Church
We believe that there is only one, Christian church, made up of all who believe in Jesus.
The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit creates faith in our hearts through the gospel.
We believe there is only one true God who is holy, eternal, and has all power and wisdom. In the Bible, God reveals himself as Triune – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe Jesus is ruling all thigs for the good of his people. And that we have peace because of what Jesus, our Foundation, did for us.
Gospel Promise
We believe that the gospel is the good news that a loving God sent Jesus Christ to take away the sines of all people, fully and freely forgiven.
We believe that God created the heavens and the earth and all that is in them.
We believe Jesus rose on Easter morning, conquering death. And because he rose, so will we.
We believe Jesus was born of the virgin Mary, and that he suffered and died on the cross to pay for all our sins.
The Bible
We believe the Bible is God’s Word. It is true and without error.
Baptism & The Lord's Supper
We believe that we become God’s children through baptism. We believe God’s love and forgiveness is ours in the Lord’s Supper.
