WE SEE A CHURCH WHERE JESUS IS TREASURED.
A church so preoccupied with Christ, His Kingdom, His glory, His fame, His honor, and His Heartbeat that little else matters.
WE SEE A CHURCH WHERE PEOPLE ARE LOVED.
A welcoming church that prefers people over programs, abandoning cliques for an atmosphere that makes room for the
most imperfect person around.
WE SEE A CHURCH WHERE COMPASSION IS EXTENDED
A church missional in mindset and action-oriented in practice. A church that is unstoppably committed to reaching a generation.
WE SEE A CHURCH WHERE YOU ARE CHANGED.
A church where masks come off of faces, leaders are raised from the ashes, & people plunge deep into a life of the pursuit of Christ.
We exist to Give Hope, Restore Purpose and Show Love.
By passionately sharing the Gospel of Jesus with people in any situation throughout the entire world.
By creating opportunities for people to find their way back to God and discover His plan for their lives.
By giving our time, treasure, and talent to preach the Gospel and reach people through generous acts of service.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We trust His Word, follow His lead, and honor Him above all.
We embrace messy ministry.
There is room at the table for people who are broken and hurting.
We are contributors not consumers.
Every person has a unique role to play in the family of God.
KEEP IT REAL
We live and lead with authenticity. We will be honest about our lives
because we are only as sick as our secrets.
THINK BIG, START SMALL
We will complete God's mission for
our church by taking risks and maximizing every resource God gives to us.
GOD -There is one God, eternally existent as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are coequal and co-eternal. God is one; infinite in power, holy in nature, and personal in His love for mankind.
THE BIBLE- The Bible is the inspired and infallible Word of God, revealing the will of God. These writings are the unique and final authority on all matters of faith and how it is lived out. The Bible is the sole basis of our belief system.
Man was created good and upright in the image of God. By voluntary transgressions, MAN -man fell into sin, and his only hope of redemption is in Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
Jesus - Jesus Christ, eternally with the Father, took upon Himself the form of man, and being born of the virgin, lived a sinless life. He voluntarily gave His life on the cross as the supreme sacrifice for our sins, bringing salvation to all who trust in Him alone. After His physical death, Jesus Christ rose from the dead and ascended into heaven as the only intercessor between God and humans. He promises to personally return to earth to fulfill the eternal plan of God.-
HOLY SPIRIT - The Holy Spirit leads believers to live a life of Christ-like character and bear fruit for the Father's glory. The baptism of the Holy Spirit empowers believers to apply the Bible to their own lives and to do great things for Him. The gifts of the Spirit that was evident in the early church are available, through faith, for us today.
HEAVEN & HELL - In this life, we have a choice to accept Christ or reject him. After death, this decision is eternally sealed and those who have accepted Christ will be received into eternal communion with God in heaven. Those who have rejected Him will suffer eternal separation from God in hell.
SALVATION - We are saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ: His death, burial, and resurrection. Salvation is a gift from God, not a result of our good works or of any human efforts.
Repentance - is the commitment to turn away from sin in every area of our lives and to follow Christ, which allows us to receive His redemption and to be regenerated by the Holy Spirit. Thus, through repentance, we receive forgiveness of sins and appropriate salvation.
Sanctification - is the ongoing process of yielding to God’s Word and His Spirit in order to complete the development of Christ's character in us. It is through the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God that the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life.
THE CHURCH - All who acknowledge Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord are united with Him as members of His body, the one true church. Scripture commands believers to gather for worship, prayer, fellowship, and the teaching of the Word; to observe Baptism and Communion as established by Jesus Christ; to offer service to the body through the development and use of talents, gifts, and outreach to the world. The local expression of the church is wherever God's people meet regularly in obedience to this command. Church members are to work together in love and unity for the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
MARRIAGE - We believe that marriage is a divine institution defined once-and-for-all in Scripture. It is not subject to political or cultural change. God created marriage to be a life-long commitment between one man and one woman. Marriage is more than a civil contract. It establishes a covenant relationship that is united by God and illustrative of Christ’s relationship with his church.
SANCTITY OF LIFE - We believe that human life begins at conception and that the unborn child is a living human being. Abortion constitutes the unjustified, unexcused taking of unborn human life.
