WE EXIST TO lead the city to
become passionate followers of Jesus.
OUR CORE VALUES
Our love has no bounds.
Our life will be a beautiful contrast to the culture and to the world.
Our gifts will be utilized for a greater purpose.
We believe God is the one true God existing in three persons: Father, Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit (the Trinity). God is still working today as He has been throughout history to fulfill His redemptive plan.
We believe Jesus is the Son of God both human and divine. Jesus Christ is eternally equal with, and the same as, God. Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a perfect life, and ministered in word and miracle. He died for our sin, was raised from the dead, ascended to Heaven and is coming again for His people.
We believe that God is active in the lives of each believer through the Holy Spirit, providing counsel, comfort, and guidance.
We believe that we were created in God’s image for the purpose of reflecting His glory and to be in relationship with Him. We have been separated from God by our disobedience (also called ‘sin’). Mankind has no way of restoring this relationship. God’s free gift of grace, through Jesus, is the only way we can be brought back into a relationship with God.
We believe that salvation is offered to all mankind through the name of Jesus. When a person accepts the free gift of grace, turns their life (just as it is) over to God, asks for forgiveness for the sin in their life, turns from their old ways to follow Jesus as their Savior and Lord (realizing they won’t be perfect), and is baptized, they have begun their new life with Jesus.
We believe that biblical faith is more than just mental agreement with a list of facts about Jesus. It begins with a faith-decision to trust the sacrifice of Jesus Christ to be the final payment for your sin and to follow him as the new leader of your life. This true faith in Jesus then naturally influences the thoughts and actions of the believer and is therefore evident in how the disciple actually lives.
We believe that baptism is commanded for those who accept Jesus as their Savior and Lord and is an act of obedience. We believe that the biblical model for baptism is immersion.
We believe the Bible is God’s inspired word. Human authors under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit wrote it. It is truth without any mixture of error and the final authority for all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that the church is a community of people that Jesus set in motion and on mission to partner with Him in serving people and in carrying out His redemptive mission to save the world.
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to this earth to judge the world, to gather those who have put their faith in Him and to punish those who have continued to rebel against Him. While the exact moment of His return will not be known, the fact that He will return should cause us to live with urgency and should be a great hope to everyone who trusts in Him.
