Our mission is simple: to cultivate followers of Jesus in our community through relationship. We believe that Jesus should be at the center of all that we are and everything we do. That’s why it’s our joy to guide people toward a Christ-centered lifestyle.
What We Value
Our core values as a church are reflected through worship, connection, development, and impact.
Worship speaks of our desire for and devotion to God, and sets the tone for everything we do and all that we are.
Connection points to our basic human need to be in genuine relationship with one another.
Development has to do with our mandate to raise up the next generation and to equip the church for effectiveness.
Impact is our missional aim through strategic ministry initiatives in our greater city and various parts of the world.
What We Believe
About the Bible
We believe the Word of God is to be held supreme in all matters. The Bible is our all-sufficient rule for faith and practice. It is a revelation from God to man, the infallible rule of faith and conduct, and is superior to conscience and reason, but not contrary to reason. (II Timothy 3:15-16; I Peter 2:2)
We believe in one eternal God, the source and goal of life, who exists as three persons in the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Mark 12:29; Isaiah 43:10; Matthew 28:19)
We believe that salvation comes through Jesus Christ alone, to whom we must respond with repentance, faith, and obedience. The inward evidence to the believer of his/her salvation is the direct witness of the Spirit. The outward evidence to all men is a life of righteousness and true holiness. (Romans 8:16; Matthew 5:16; Romans 5:12-21) Through Christ we come into a right relationship with God, our sins are forgiven, and we receive eternal life.
About the Baptism of the Holy Spirit
We believe that all believers are entitled to, and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the baptism in the Holy Spirit. With it comes the endowment of power for life and service. This experience is distinct from and subsequent to the salvation experience. (Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; 10:44-46; 11:7-9, 14-16; I Corinthians 12:1-31)
About the Call of Every Believer
We believe that God has called us to be and to make disciples of Jesus Christ and to be God’s agents of love and reconciliation in the world. In keeping with the teaching of Jesus, we seek peace and justice in human relationships and social structures. (Mark 16:15, 20; Ephesians 4:11-13; I John 2:6; I Peter 3:15-16)
About the Church
We believe in the church as the people of God, composed of all who believe in Jesus Christ, who support and equip each other through worship, teaching and accountability, who model Gods’ loving community and who proclaim the Gospel to the world. (Ephesians 1:22-23, 2:22, 4:11-13; Hebrews 12:23)
About Divine Healing
We believe in divine healing. Deliverance from sickness has been provided by Jesus Christ through his suffering, crucifixion and shedding of blood. Healing is available to all believers according to God’s divine purposes. (Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17)
About the Return of Christ
We believe in the personal return of Jesus Christ, in the resurrection of the dead, in God’s judgment of all persons with perfect justice and mercy, and in eternal reward and punishment. (Romans 11:26-27; II Thessalonians 1:7, I Thessalonians 4:16-18; Titus 2:13-14; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Revelation 19:11-14, 20:1-7, 10-15; II Peter 3:13)
