Core Beliefs

Biblical truths for which this Church stands include:

A.    Biblical Authority. Because we believe Scripture is God’s infallible word, it is the supreme authority for Christ-followers and the Church.

B.     God-Dependent. Because we believe Scripture teaches that apart from God we can do nothing, we are a people of prayer, obedience, faith and risk.

C.     Mission of God. Because we believe salvation is found only in Jesus Christ, we are committed through word and deed to see all lost people come to Christ and grow into His fully devoted followers, and to be a multiplying missional congregation.

D.    Mission-Empowering Relationships. Because we believe God is a relational being who created humanity in His image, and because the Scriptures call churches to interdependent relationships to most effectively carry out God’s mission, we value building relationships both between pastors and between congregations.

E.     Church as a Mosaic. Because we believe all men and women are made in the image and likeness of God, we embrace and celebrate the multiplicity of generations, ethnic backgrounds, and cultural expressions within the body of Christ modeling reconciliation to the world.

F.      Generation to Generation. Because we believe each generation needs new life in Christ, we value the development of a new generation of leaders, and ministries that reach and serve next generations.

G.    Spiritual Leadership. Because we believe Scripture places critical importance on the quality of leadership, we seek and equip leaders called by God, sanctified and gifted by the Holy Spirit who serve in various capacities and guide the Church in fulfilling His purpose.

FIND YOUR FAITH

Have you lost your faith? No matter how far you've fallen or how many rules you have broken, once you are a child of God, you are always a child of God. Because we believe salvation is found only in Jesus Christ, we are committed through word and deed to see all lost people come to Christ and grow into His fully devoted followers, and to be a multiplying missional congregation.

"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened." -Matthew 7:7
