WHAT WE BELIEVE
We want to create an environment where people can experience God! We desire to see people Saved, Set Free, Redeemed, and ultimately Living a Fulfilled Life that God has called each of us to live!
We believe that the only true God exists as a trinity; Father, Son, & Spirit. He created and upholds all things by the Word of His power. He is the God of truth, justice, and righteousness.
In Jesus Christ, the fullness of God dwells. He is equal with God as the second person of the trinity. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died in our place and rose after 3 days to give us eternal life. He sits at God's right hand interceding for man.
The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity. He is the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead and now lives in every believer from the moment of salvation. The spirit indwells, guides, instructs, comforts, and empowers all believers.
The Bible is the inerrant, infallible word of God, written by human hand under the supernatural guidance of the Spirit. All scripture is God breathed and profitable for teaching, reproof, correction and training so that all the church is equipped.
All man was made in the image of God. Because of Adam's sin in the garden all mankind since is born in sin passed from his father. Mankind is therefor not possible to reach God so God came to us to ransom sinful man.
Man wasn't built to die. But because of sin death came into the world. For those in Christ and saved by his blood, Heaven awaits. For all men apart from Christ eternity separated from the love of God in Hell is the only other sad reality.
Jesus died to save man from the bondage of sin. Jesus and his death is the way, the truth, and the life. The only way to salvation comes by Jesus Christ. Salvation only comes by the spirit drawing man into relationship with God through Christ.
Christ's salvation is once and for all. If your are in Christ you are truly a new creation and will persevere to eternity. Salvation is maintained by the grace and power of God, not by the effort of man. You can't lose what you don't control.
OUR CORE VALUES
WE believe a real relationship with Jesus results in a real community called the church. As Dietrich Bonhoeffer said, "The church isn't a community
you create but rather a community
you're created for." It is a community
made of real people doing real life
Jesus at the
We believe that when we live in real relationship with Jesus, we experience freedom from the
power that sin once held over all of us. We have a freedom to worship and invite others to share in this relationship.
We believe that when we live in real relationship with Jesus we are given a real life. A life that is made new and whole. We live in connection with other believers in the only life that matters. A life chasing after Jesus.
We believe that the way we
gain a real relationship with
Jesus is by responding to the good news of his word; the gospel. Jesus
tells us in his word that all who hear
truth hear his voice. Jesus sought us when we
were his enemies and tells us this through his word.
The Church we see is Generous. We believe that all that we possess is for Him to use as He sees necessary. The church uses generosity to change the world, remaining compassionate with It’s resources. We love others
with our time, our materials and our talents.
Everything given from God is a gift to be used
for His glory.
Without generosity we grow selfish
The Church we see is passionate. Life - real, honest, true
life - can be found everywhere. We are passionate in
the way we worship our God, the way we
approach God’s word, the way we love, the way we serve, the way we reach out and the way we
give. Passion drives us to new heights,
Passion brings us greater joy, Passion
turns pain into triumph, Passion
Without passion church
becomes a chore.
The Church we see is creative. It
creatively uses every resource
available to heal the hurting, inspire
the stagnant, and call the shallow to
deeper waters. The church I see is creating
art that can only be inspired by God. The
Church we see uses creative gifts not to keep
up with the culture but to create culture.
Without creativity we
The Church we see has
an unshakable conviction
toward growth. We must
reach those who are far from
God with His love through us. We must each be committed to personal
growth. His church must never stop growing, never stop reaching, never stop
teaching and never stop calling people to
transformation that can only be found in Him.
stagnation takes place.
The Church we see is preparing
generations, concerned with not
only our present time, but in the future
we will leave our children. The church we see is equipping young people to whom we may pass the mantle of leadership. The church we see is built not only for use, but also for future generations. The church we see lives longer than our leadership.
Without legacy we
lose our future.
