CULTURE - VISION - STRATEGY - BELIEFS
We center our lives around Jesus
Jesus isn’t just first on a list of priorities, He’s the center of our lives.

Keeping the good news about Jesus a secret is not an option.

The Bible is the inspired, infallible word of God (2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21).
God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity. He exists as one substance in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Although each member of the Trinity serves different functions, they each possess equal power and authority.
Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Mark 1:9-11; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23; 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19
Jesus is fully God and fully man. He came to earth, was conceived in the virgin Mary and lived a sinless life. He died and rose again to reconcile all people to God and to free them from the power of sin and the devil. He will return someday and consummate the building of his Kingdom. All who are his bride shall reign with him. All who reject him shall suffer eternal destruction (Matthew 1:18-25; Luke 1:26-38; Romans 9:5; Titus 2:13).
The Fall of Humanity
All people are sinners and need to have a saving relationship with God. People are made children of God when they repent of their sin, place their trust in Jesus Christ, and commit their life to him (Genesis 1:26,27; 3:1,24; Romans 3:25; 5:12-18; 1 John 1:8).
The Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit continually draws believers closer to God, transforms them into the image of Jesus Christ, empowers them for ministry, and distributes spiritual gifts to the Church. Believers are to always seek to be filled with the Holy Spirit. (John 16:5-15; Romans 8:16, 23, 26, 27; 1 Corinthians 12:1-31)
Baptism and Communion
Baptism and communion are two ordinances the Lord has given the Church. The only form of baptism we practice is believer’s baptism by immersion. (Baptism: Acts 2:38-41; Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 8:26-40; 10:47; 18:8; Romans 6:3-4. Communion: Acts 2:42-46; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29)
The Church is a local community of baptized believers unified through faith in Christ. It is committed to the teachings of Christ and obeying all of His commands, and it seeks to bring the Gospel to the world. The Church works together in love and unity, intent on the ultimate purpose of glorifying Christ.
Matthew 16:18-19; 18:15-20; Acts 2:41-47; 5:11-14; 13:1-3; 14:23; 16:5; 20:28; 1 Corinthians 7:17; 9:13-14; 12;Ephesians 1:22-23; 2:19-22; 3:10-12; 5:22-32; Colossians 1:18;3:15; 1 Timothy 4:14; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
