WHO WE ARE


OUR MISSION 

We help people belong in community, believe in Jesus, and become who Jesus has called them to be.


OUR CORE VALUES

We Love Everybody, Always
We will love all people with a relentless, wild, out of this world love because we believe all people are created in God's image and that is how God loves all people

We Do More By Doing Less
We would rather be excellent in a few things than average in a lot of things

The Invitation Is Now
We invite because a simple invite can change someone's life

We Invest Purposefully
We're generous with what we have because God is generous with what He has

Life Is Better Together
We believe no one should have to do life by themselves and we put aside our small differences because we have a bigger calling

We Are All Works In Progress
We don't pretend to be perfect because we're not

Think Outside The Box
We don't accept "it can't be done"
 


OUR BELIEFS

God

God is the creator and ruler of the universe.

He has eternally existed in three personalities: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and one God.

References: Genesis 1:1, 26-27, 3:22; Psalm 90:2; 1 Peter 1:2; 2 Cor. 13:14

 

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father.

Jesus lived a sinless, human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again someday to earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

References: Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5, 14:10-30; Hebrews 4:14-15; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Romans 1:3-4; Acts l:9-11; 1 Timothy 6:14-15; Titus 2:13

 

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God.

He is present in the world to make men aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He also lives in every Christian from the moment of salvation. He provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As Christians, we seek to live under His control daily.

References: 2 Corinthians 3:17; John 16:7-13, 14:16-17; Acts 1:8; 1 Corinthians 2:12, 3:16; Ephesians 1:13, 5:18; Galatians 5:25

 

Baptism

Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Jesus.  It is a public, outward testimony of a personal, inward faith in Jesus.  It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted Himself to baptism to “fulfill all righteousness.”

References: Matthew 3:16-17, 28:18-20; Acts 2:41, 8:12

 

Bible

The Bible is God’s Word to us.

It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.

References: II Timothy 1:13, 3:16; II Peter 1:20-21; Psalm 11:105, 160, 12:6; Proverbs 30:5
