What We Believe

Vision Statement

Connecting People
We place a high value on growing together as a body of people who love Jesus. Our desire is to provide a safe place where people can connect with God and other people in a life-giving, joy-bringing way.  We believe in unity for all believers in Jesus Christ and seek community together.  So while we meet together on Sundays for our main services, we also meet throughout the week through different types of meetings. 

Nurturing Families
We believe that the family unit is designed to be a reflection of God’s love, acceptance, and protection.  Our desire is to see God’s presence and truth infiltrate the family unit bringing healing, restoration, and wholeness to every family.  We have activities and opportunities for families to learn and grow in their relationships with God and each other.

Experiencing God
The most honoring thing we can do in our lives is to welcome God by creating space for Him to move.  We always want to honor the Holy Spirit and have His presence manifest at our meetings and in our day to day lives.  We are intentionally sensitive to God’s presence because it is by experiencing God through His Holy Spirit that we grow to understand and know Him more.  It is by the power of God’s presence that we are healed, delivered and set free. We love to gather together to experience God and also place a high value on taking time to experience Him in our everyday relationship with Him.


Tenets of Faith

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.
    2 Timothy 3:16, 17;  1 Peter 1:23-25

  2. We believe in the Triune Godhead as eternally existent in three persons:  Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
    Matthew 28:18, 19;  Deuteronomy 6:4;  Hebrews. 1:1-3;  2 Corinthians 13:14

  3. We believe in the deity of Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:9), in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His present priestly ministry. 
    John 1:1, 2;  John 1:14;  Philippians 2:8-11;  1 Corinthians 15:1-7;  2 Corinthians 5:17 

  4. We believe in evangelistic and missionary fervor and endeavor. 
    Mark 13:10;  2 Timothy 4:2

  5. We believe that for the salvation of lost and sinful man, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential.  We believe that the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ.  
    John 3:16;  Romans 8:9, 10

  6. We believe in the sanctification and holiness of heart and the overcoming life as God’s design for the Church, which is the Bride of Christ.
    Romans 12:21;  I John 2:13, 14;  I John 4:4

  7. We believe the Holy Spirit to be the third person of the Trinity, Whose purpose in the redemption of man is to convict men of sin, regenerate the repentant believer, guide the believer into all truth, indwell and give gifts to believers as He wills, that they may minister as Christ would to all men and women. We believe that the manifestations of the Holy Spirit recorded in 1 Corinthians 12:8-11 still operate in present day churches which yield to the Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 11:13;  John 7:37-39; 14:16, 17; 16:7-14; Acts 2:39-48). We believe that the baptism in the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance is for all believers as promised by John the Baptist (Matthew 3:11), by Jesus (Acts 1:4, 5, 8), by Peter (Acts 2:38-41), and was witnessed by the early disciples (Acts 2:4; 10: 44-47; 19: 1-6) and is evidenced by many present-day disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ.
  8. We believe that the redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer.  
    Isaiah 53:5;  James 5:14-16;  Mark 16:18;  1 Corinthians 12:9

  9. We believe in Christ’s imminent personal return in power and great glory and in His present and everlasting dominion.  
    Matthew 16:27, 28;  Acts 1:11 
  10. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto resurrection of eternal life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of eternal punishment.  
    John 5:28, 29;  John 11:25, 26 
  11. We believe in the ordinance of baptism by immersion.  It shall be administered to all those who have repented of their sins, who have believed on the Lord Jesus Christ to the saving of their souls and who give clear evidence of their salvation.  
    Matthew 3:16, 17;  Matthew 28:19; Romans 6:3, 4  
  12. We believe in the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper.  It shall be observed regularly, as enjoined in the Scriptures.
    Luke 22:19, 20;  1 Corinthians 11:23-26
