WHAT WE BELIEVE

OUR MISSION

OUR VALUES

This is demonstrated by:

  • Intentionally making decisions based  on who we are trying to reach, not just who we are trying to keep.

  • Creating an intentional plan for church health and growth.

  • Willingly and passionately evaluating and addressing leaders, ministries, programs, and

    events that might hinder growth.

John 15:8; Ephesians 4:15–16;

Zechariah 4:6;  John 15:5; 

Philippians 4:5–6

We believe our mission requires the miraculous. With God, all things are possible. Apart from Christ we can not do anything, so prayer precedes, saturates, and celebrates everything we do.

We believe that we can accomplish more when we put the preferences and needs of others ahead of our own.

This is demonstrated by:

 

  • Prioritizing team prayer before we plan.

  • Making prayer our first thought not an after thought amongst our team.

  • Capturing specific prayer needs, opportunities, and challenges

  • Leading our church in corporate and personal prayer.

This is demonstrated by:

  • Doing whatever it takes to win and disciple people for Christ.

  • Teaching the importance that life is better together not in isolation.

  • Engaging our community in weekly worship with others, lifting songs of praise together,

    learning from the Word, and participating in church family gatherings.

  • Creating local mission and service opportunities in order to show love to our community.

1 Corinthians 12:18–23; Matthew 18:19–20; John 15:12–14

We believe that if we are not growing we are dying.

We believe all decisions for life and behavior should be based on scriptural principles rather than the prevailing opinions, theories, and trends of our world.

This is demonstrated by:

  • Praying for wisdom and truth to be revealed to us in any idea or action before following it.

  • Seeking to provide counseling on the pressures and ideas people are facing in today’s

    culture with God’s unchanging Word.

  • Identifying potential places of compromise and preparing people to overcome it.

Acts 17:11; Psalm 119:89

OUR BELIEFS

GOD

There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections....

THE CHURCH

A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel; observing the two ordinances of Christ, governed by His laws, exercising the gifts, rights, and privileges invested in them by His Word, and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth.

MAN

Man is the special creation of God, made in His own image. In the beginning man was innocent of sin and was endowed by his Creator with freedom of choice. By his free choice man sinned against God and brought sin into the human race.

BAPTISM

Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer's faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer's death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus. It is a testimony to his faith in the final resurrection of the dead.

THE BIBLE

The Holy Bible was written by men divinely inspired and is God's revelation of Himself to man.  It has God for its author, salvation for its end, and truth, without any mixture of error, for its matter. Therefore, all Scripture is totally true and trustworthy.

FAMILY

God has ordained the family as the foundational institution of human society. It is composed of persons related to one another by marriage, blood, or adoption.

Marriage is the uniting of one man and one woman in covenant commitment for a lifetime. It is God's unique gift to reveal the union between Christ and His church and to provide for the man and the woman in marriage the framework for intimate companionship

SALVATION

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior,  In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
