what we believe

We are people who belong to Christ.

We exist to connect every man, woman, and child to Jesus Christ, his people, and his mission.

All people were created to...
...WORSHIP God in every aspect of their lives.
...LOVE one another and experience community.
...SERVE with their God-given gifts.
...REACH others with the good news of Christ.

THE BIBLE

We believe God inspired the writing of the Scriptures, both in the Old and New Testaments, to equip humankind to honor and obey God in every area of life. The Bible, interpreted in context, will be our sole source for what we believe, what we do, and how we act toward others.

GOD

We believe there is one true God who is eternally self-existent and the Creator of all things.  God is all-knowing, all-powerful, and all-present, and reveals himself through His Word. He is loving, merciful, and just. He has revealed Himself as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

humanity

We believe that humankind is created in the image of God and are designed to be representatives for God on the earth. However, all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and need to surrender their lives to Jesus Christ, the one and only mediator between God and man.

holy spirit

We believe the Spirit of God indwells every believer.  The gifts of the Spirit should be earnestly sought and used to serve others, edify the church, and glorify God. The Holy Spirit empowers every Christian to be an effective witness for God throughout the world.

jesus christ

We believe Jesus Christ was fully human and fully God. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, performed miracles, died a substitutionary death on the cross, rose from the dead on the third day, and is at the right hand of God interceding for his people.
