Ours is a welcoming community of faith where visitors can find hope, help and home. Our vision is to love and serve God, to provide an accepting home for anyone who hurts, and to enable each believer to fulfill God's purpose. We gather each Sunday evening to worship God and celebrate our faith. During the week, we come together for various small groups and meetings, Bible studies and prayer groups. Our church is also a gathering place for community groups of people who are searching for knowledge and fellowship, need support, or who wish to share their gifts with those less fortunate.
In essential beliefs - we have unity
In non-essential beliefs - we have liberty
In all our beliefs - we show charity
"...If I hold in my mind not only all human knowledge, but also the very secrets of God, and if I have faith that I can move mountains - but have no love, I amount to nothing at all." 1 Cor. 13:2
What We Believe . . .
. . . About 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.
. . . About Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father. Jesus lived a sinless 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's glory and will return again someday to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
. . . About the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is co-equal with the Father and the Son of God. He 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. He provides the christian with power for living, understanding the spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right. He gives every believer a spiritual gift when they are saved. As christians, we seek to live under His control daily.
. . . About the Bible
The Bible is God's Word to us. It was written by human authors, under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. It is the supreme source of truth for christian beliefs and living. Because it is inspired by God, it is the truth without any mixture of error.
. . . About Human Beings
People are made in the spiritual image of God, to be like Him in character. People are the supreme object of God's affection. Although every person has tremendous potential for good, all of us are marred by sin, which separates us from God and causes many problems in life.
. . . About Salvation
Salvation is God's free gift to us but we must 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. When we turn from our self-ruled life and turn to Jesus in faith we are saved. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.
. . . About Eternity
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. Heaven and Hell are real places of eternal existence.
. . . About Good Works
We believe that even though men and women cannot receive salvation by good works, their good works are still pleasing to God as they rise out of true faith and love for Jesus.
The Church's Vision . . .
To be a healthy, biblical, multi-national community of holy people multiplying disciples, leaders, groups, and churches to the glory of God.
. . . and Purpose . . .
To worship the Lord and boldly advance His kingdom, by intentionally equipping and releasing believers to lovingly reach the lost in His name.
