About Us

What We Believe

  • The Bible contains the truth from God revealed through prophets and apostles as a useful tool for a basic and growing understanding of God and His Son Jesus Christ. (2 Timothy 3:16, Romans 15:4, Luke 24:27)
  • God is the creator of all things (Genesis 1:1) and his only Son is Jesus Christ. (John 3:16-17, John 10:30)
  • The only way to eternal life is through a relationship with Jesus. (John 14:6, Acts 4:10-12, Philippians 2:9-11)
  • Jesus is the only one who conquered death and paid for the debt of sin for all people. Those who choose to follow him will confess their need for him, repent from the old ways of living, be baptized by immersion into his name, and grow to become a disciple who reaches out to those who would believe. (Matthew 3:13-15, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 8:12, Acts 22:16)
  • The Holy Spirit is offered as a spiritual promise and helper to every committed believer. (2 Corinthians 1:21-22, Acts 2:38, John 14:26-27)
  • Followers of Jesus will work for the good of His Kingdom. (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • The Church is a kingdom of servants that crosses all boundaries including nationality, race, sex, and language. (Galatians 3:27-28)
  • The Church are those who have been reconciled to God by being born again. (Acts 2:38-39, Acts 22:16, Romans 5:6-11,John 3:16-17)
  • The mission of the Church is to reach as many people as possible with the truth of Jesus and to encourage believers to mature in their faith. (Matthew 28:18-20)
  • Our corporate worship gathering is about connecting with the Father in heaven and with those who worship together. We model our worship time after the first churches found in Acts 2:42.
  • One day Jesus will return and resurrect all people and he will decide who will be designated to eternal life or eternal death. (Matthew 25:31-32, Revelation 21:1-8)
