Beliefs

The Christian life is based on these beliefs and we feel a full life in Christ can be lived out through a set of core values practiced.

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.

(Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:26-27Psalm 90:2, Matthew 28:19, 1 Peter 1:2, 2 Corinthians 13:14)


Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. Christ 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.

(Matthew 1:22-23, Isaiah 9:6, John 1:1-5, John 14:10-13Hebrews 4:14-15, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, Romans 1:3-4, Acts 1:9-11, 1 Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13)


The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit 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 and provides the Christian with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right.

(2 Corinthians 3:17, John 14:16-17, Acts 1:8, 1 Corinthians 2:12, 1 Corinthians 3:16, Ephesians 1:13)


The Bible

The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit and is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any error.

(2 Timothy 3:16, 2 Peter 1:20-21, 2 Timothy 1:13, Psalms 119:105Psalms 119:160Psalms 12:6, Proverbs 30:5)


People

Humans are made in the spiritual image of God; to be like Him in character. We're the supreme object of God's creation. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." and separates people from Him and causes many problems in life.

(Genesis 1:27, Psalm 8:3-6Isaiah 53:6, Romans 3:23, Isaiah 59:1-2)


Salvation

Salvation is God's free gift to us if we choose to accept it. We can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God's offer of forgiveness can anyone be saved from sin's penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into their life by faith.

(Romans 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, John 14:6, John 1:12, Titus 3:5Galatians 3:26, Romans 5:1)


Eternal Life

People were created to exist forever. We will exist eternally; either separated from God by sin or with Him through trusting in Jesus for the forgiveness of our sin. To be eternally separated from God is Hell and to be eternally in union with Him is eternal life.

(John 3:16, John 14:17, Romans 6:23, Romans 8:17-18, Revelation 20:15, 1 Corinthians 2:7-9)

Our Core Values

Grateful People Worship

A time when we share our sincere love with God is through worship. Setting time aside for church and in your personal time to worship builds your relationship with God and continues to grow your character in Christ.

(John 4:23-24, Acts 17:24-25, James 4:8a)

Thriving People Connect

It's great being able to see friends on Sunday but as some have said: circles are better than rows. The best way for you to build close relationships of encouragement and support is connecting through LifeGroups.

(Acts 2:42, Ecclesiastes 4:12)

Join a Group


Generous People Serve

As we grow in our relationship with God and allow the Gospel to change us, our hearts become more in tune with Christ and His love for others. The primary way for you to gauge your spiritual health and to discover what your natural gifts and talents are is through serving.

(Galatians 5:13, 1 Peter 4:10, 1 Corinthians 12:7)

Find a Place to Serve


Loving People Share

Having the freedom that we do through Christ, we want others to have this same experience. It's God's desire to share your life and faith with those you interact with every day because He wants everyone to have the life-saving opportunity of Salvation.

(Mark 16:15, 2 Peter 3:9)
