For sin shall no longer be your master, because you are not under the law, but under grace. Romans 6:14
These are the core values we base our entire church on. They are the foundation of everything we do.
Allow God to
Connect people to God and one another
be Generous in everything
2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Spiritual growth is a life-long process of imitating Christ. As we cultivate a balanced lifestyle of purity, holiness, and Christian character, we honor God and influence others (Ephesians 5:1-5, Philippians 2:1-11, Galatians 5:22, 23).
Intimacy With God
We share God's desire for an intimate relationship which is cultivated by the consistency of prayer, dynamic worship, and a need for an understanding of the Word of God (Psalm 139, Acts 2:42, Matthew 6:5-15).
We believe how we represent ourselves is a reflection of who we really are. This is accomplished collectively as we individually pursue accountability for each other based on integrity, sound character, high moral values, and Biblical principles
( I Peter 2:12, Proverbs 27:17, Proverbs 12:15).
We believe God equips each of us with talents, abilities, and resources, expecting us to fully develop and use these gifts, thereby maximizing our potential to serve Him and our communities
(Matthew 25:14-30, Ephesians 3:20-21).
Our faith in God compels us to take well-planned, aggressive, visionary steps to present the gospel of Jesus Christ -- regardless of the risk involved (I Samuel 17:45-47, Hebrews 11, James 2:14-26).
Excellence In Ministry
When you truly experience the excellence of God, you will be compelled to serve Him with a passion and give Him your absolute best
(Colossians 3:17, II Samuel 24:24, Mark 12:30).
We believe a right relationship with God is essential for achieving reconciliation among family members, races, and denominations
(II Corinthians 5:18-20, Galatians 3:26-29).
God designed us to serve (to value others above ourselves) and to be served (to allow others to fulfill needs in our lives). As we are obedient to this calling, God brings together our talents and abilities to form a powerful Christian community (John 13:34-35, Galatians 6:2, I Corinthians 12:7, 12-17).
As fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, we are urgently driven to share our faith with non believers, to educate believers for practical victorious living, and to equip believers for abundant service to God. (Matthew 28:18-20)
We believe God's Word contains the solution to every challenge in life. Therefore, we present God's Word in creative, artistic, and culturally relevant ways.
(Psalm 119:105, I Corinthians 9:19-23, Acts 17:16-19)
One Holy God
Eternally existent in three persons: the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The Holy Bible
The inspired, infallible, authoritative source of Christian belief and teaching.
Created in the image of God but fallen, lost and powerless to save himself.
Virgin-born Son of God Who was crucified to take upon Himself the punishment for the sin of all mankind. He arose from the dead, thereby conquering sin, death and the grave. Jesus will personally return to the earth in power and glory.
Man's Only Hope
Belief in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Water Baptism and Holy Communion are among the ways we celebrate our hope in Jesus Christ.
Consistent with His earthly ministry, Jesus Christ still offers healing for the physical, relational and emotional pain in our lives.
The Holy Spirit
Dwells in those who receive Christ and empowers believers to live righteous and holy lives. The Baptism of the Holy Spirit, along with its evidences, and the Gifts of the Spirit are available to believers today.
When a life is changed by the love of Christ, we begin a journey of becoming like Christ. It is displayed inwardly with love, joy, and peace. It is displayed outwardly in lives of integrity and is shown relationally by love and grace.
Life, as we know it, will come to an end. Jesus will return and show Himself to be "King of Kings." Everyone will be held accountable for the choices of their lives. A permanent, personal relationship with God, without the influence of evil and pain will be established for all who chose Christ. This will be Heaven forever.
The Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ is the head, is comprised of all those who, through belief in Christ, have been spiritually changed by the personal work of the Holy Spirit. Believers are called to pursue God's mission, both collectively and individually. For some it is a vocation (pastors, missionaries, etc.), for all... a passion.
We believe in the ministry of Jesus Christ.
We believe He died on a cross and arose from the grave three days later before ascending to heaven to prepare a place for those who are saved by Him.
We believe The Bible is the infallible Word of God. And though it was written by many men, we believe it was inspired directly by the Holy Spirit through God's design. The Bible is the truth, as is everything in it. If it's not in The Bible, it's not truth. For 2,000 years, society has changed but not the Word of God.
God created everything.
God is not defined by human time, science, or physics. We do, however, believe these are discovered through God sharing knowledge with mankind.
God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit are three parts of one. A triune God.
We are all the body of Christ. The church are His disciples.
To be outlaws of society, the organized church, and believers who are following strict human legalism that is not defined by Scripture.
We simply want to bring the message of Jesus Christ to those who would not normally step foot into a church facility. We want to reach and minister to those where they are.
We will minister, aid, teach, and love everyone. This is true non-denominational ministry. We will do this through Scripture, not condemnation. Love and connection, not humiliation. Our goal is to minister in similar ways as Jesus did, which is just connecting to those who are lost and teaching them about eternal life in Christ.
And He said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment. 39 The second is like it, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ - Matthew 22:37-39
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” - Matthew 28:18-20
“Beware of the scribes, who like to walk around in long robes, and love greetings in the marketplaces and the best seats in the synagogues and the places of honor at feasts, who devour widows' houses and for a pretense make long prayers. They will receive the greater condemnation.” - Luke 20:46-47
11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds and teachers, 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, 13 until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, 14 so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. - Ephesians 4:11-17
Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it." - Matthew 16:24-25
Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another. - Proverbs 27:17
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.- Hebrews 10:24-25
"Give justice to the weak and the fatherless; maintain the right of the afflicted and the destitute. Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”- Psalm 82:3-4
Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed. - Proverbs 19:17
Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. - James 1:27
