Core Values and Beliefs
We want everyone everywhere to know God and we want people to share God's love, grace and forgiveness to those without Jesus.
All people matter to God and therefore matter to us.
Allowing God's Word to renew our hearts and minds.
Transforming people's hearts and minds with purpose and value and encouraging them to help others find this as well.
God deserves our best and so do the relationships God gives us.
Excellence honors God and inspires people.
Authentic relationships with God and each other (doing life together).
Being the hands and feet of Jesus in our communities to see Jesus' love in action.
What We Believe
We believe in God. He is, He was, and He always will be. He created the Heavens and the Earth, and everything in them. He is known as Father, came as the Son, and lives in believers as the Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1-31, Matthew 3:16-17, John 1:1-2, Acts 2:32-33, Hebrews 11:3)
Jesus, God the Son, came to Earth and was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died for our sins, and rose from the dead. He's still alive and changing lives today! (John 1:1-2, 14, Colossians 2:9, Luke 1:30-35, 1 Corinthians 15:3-8, 2 Corinthians 5:21)
Holy Spirit is a comforter and a guide for every born-again believer. He actually lives inside us, His temple, and does more for us than we can imagine. (John 16:8, Acts 2:38, Ephesians 1:13-14)
The Bible is the book God wrote for us. It is true, it is accurate, it is authentic, and it is absolutely applicable to our lives today. We believe it is the only book God gave us and by which we get God's truth for our lives today. Get it, read it, live it! (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:20-21)
We're not perfect. We have sinned, all of us. We need help. We need Him. We need each other, and that's what Church is all about. (Genesis 1:27, Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23, Acts 4:12)
It is a free gift. It is by God's grace, not your good deeds. Jesus' death allows your sins, all of them, to be forgiven.
Wiped out, cancelled, deleted, erased. Do you get the picture? Salvation is free, all you have to do is accept it and nothing you do can earn it. (John 3:16-17, Ephesians 2:8-9)
He calls us to repent (change our mind about who's in charge of our life) confess Him as Lord and Savior (verbal declaration) be baptized (water immersion), and faithfully walk with Him (until death). When we make Him Lord, we enter into a new life and we follow Jesus all the way to Heaven. (Acts 3:19, Romans 10:9,10, Acts 2:38, Mark 16:16, Romans 6:1-4, Galatians 3:26-27, Colossians 2:6)
HEAVEN AND HELL
They're real. That's why we are doing everything we can to share the good news about Jesus. God doesn't want
anybody to choose Hell, but He wants everybody with Him in Heaven. That's why we do what we do. (Acts 1:10-11, John 5:28-29, Daniel 12:2, 2 Corinthians 4:14)
