Our mission is to lead people to become fully devoted followers of Christ.
Unity on the essentials, liberty on the non-essentials and love in all things. There are the things we hold to as the Essentials of the Faith.
God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe.
He has eternally existed as the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one God.
Jesus is the Son of God.
He is coequal with the Father and Holy Spirit. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to Heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King.
The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian from salvation.
The Holy Spirit is coequal with the Father and the Son of God. He is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He provides Christians with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer spiritual gifts when they are saved. As Christians we seek to live under His control daily.
The Bible is God's Word to us.
The Bible was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for Christian beliefs about living. Because it is inspired by God, it is truth without error.
People are the supreme object of God's creation.
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by an attitude of disobedience toward God called "sin." Sin separates us from God and causes many problems in our life.
People will exist eternally with or without God.
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life in Heaven. Heaven and hell are real places of eternal existence.
Baptism is symbolic of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.
Once we have accepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior, baptism is a way for us to publicly declare our new life in Christ. It is also a step of obedience based on God’s commands and allows us to follow the example of Jesus, who submitted himself to baptism to "fulfill all righteousness."
We are faith-filled, big thinking, bet-the-farm risk takers.
We’ll never insult God with small thinking and safe living.
We are all about the “capital C” Church!
The local church is the hope of the world and we know we can accomplish inﬁnitely more together than apart.
We give up things we love for things we love even more.
It’s an honor to sacriﬁce for Christ and His church.
We will do anything short of sin to reach people who don’t know Christ.
To reach people no one is reaching, we’ll have to do things no one is doing.
We will lead the way with irrational generosity.
We truly believe it is more blessed to give than to receive.
We will laugh hard, loud, and often.
Nothing is more fun than serving God with people you love!
We always bring our best.
Excellence honors God and inspires people.
We are spiritual contributors not spiritual consumers.
The church does not exist for us. We are the church and we exist for the world.
We will honor Christ and His church with integrity.
If we live with integrity, nothing else matters. If we don’t live with integrity, nothing else matters.
