"A Growing Community... Becoming Like Jesus"
We believe the Gospel is so important that we are to share it with those around us as well as those far from us. We value personal evangelism as well as supporting missionaries who are sharing the gospel around the world
We value community, serving together, and spending time with each other. The example that Jesus set for us was discipleship happens in the context of relationships.
We value investing our time and talents in God’s kingdom. Whether it’s serving in kids ministry, on Sunday mornings, or throughout the week, service takes our faith to the community.
We believe the family is the primary way God shares his grace from generation to generation. We value faith at home to equip and engage parents to disciple their children.
We believe the way we handle our finances is important because it shows us where our heart really is. Generous people take care of those around, just a Jesus commanded.
What We Believe
He is the creator and sustainer of all things, the Lord of all that exists. He is eternal– no beginning, no ending–the same yesterday, today, and forever. He is one but also exists in three personalities: Father, Son (Jesus Christ), and Holy Spirit. (Genesis 1:1-2; John 1:1-4; Acts 17:24-29; Deuteronomy 6:4-5)
He is God’s only, unique, eternally existent Son, co-equal with the Father. He lived on earth in human form by miraculous conception and virgin birth. Jesus lived a sinless life and was the promised Messiah who gave His life as a willing sacrifice for our sins by dying on the cross. His resurrection from the grave provides an opportunity for all to receive the gift of eternal life in heaven through faith in Him. He ascended to heaven’s glory and will return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. (John 3:16-17; 14:1-6; 1 Timothy 6:13-15)
God has always desired to have a people in fellowship with Him. In the Old Testament times, God permitted the Israelites to be His chosen people to live according to His laws and teachings. Since Jesus’ coming, the church–the people of God through faith in Christ Jesus–are those who live for Him and share His truths with others all over the world. (Ephesians 1:3-10; 5:23-27; Matthew 16:18; 28:19-20)
He is personal, with characteristics of a person, and is the one who comes to live within every believer at conversion. He provides the believer with all that is necessary (direction, gifts, fruit) to live according to the will and purpose of God. (Acts 2:38-39; 1 Corinthians 2:10-14; Romans 12:4-8; Galatians 5:22-23)
