About us

CORE VALUES

We Value Jesus Christ and His personal presence

The exaltation of Jesus is given preeminence in order to create an environment where God openly manifests his presence.

 

We Value Biblical Authority
The anointed teaching and reception of God’s Word is the primary catalyst for spiritual transformation, individually and corporately.           

 

We Value Christ’s Love and Grace
God’s personal love motivates us to love one another and do all we can to help our fellow man. The redemptive power of the finished work of Christ supplies mercy, grace, forgiveness and hope.

 

We Value Integrity, and Accountability
Christ is establishing truth within the believer so that biblical soundness produces honesty, accountability and responsibility.  We value growing in excellence in what we do for Christ and one another.

 

We Value Biblical Community
The authentic fellowship we experience in relationships when we share life together as believers is the visible manifestation of Christ. The local church has been commissioned to fulfill Christ’s mission corporately and in smaller groups.

 

We Value Godly Leaders and Followers
Those who have the gifts, faith, courage, experience and who are humbly willing to sacrifice in order to lead in the local church. We also understand that every believer has valuable influence that they can use to support the vision.

 

We Value Passionate Worship
Wholehearted worship that connects with God and prepares the heart to hear his Word.

 

We Value Creative Evangelism
The proclamation of the timeless gospel can be expressed in new ways to reach our changing culture releasing the power that regenerates anyone who comes to God in faith so they may begin a new life in relationship with Christ.     

 

We Value Faith in Action and Joyful Service
The reality of God’s presence and the validity of His Word compel us to joyfully attempt to obey the challenging commands of God and fulfill our highest spiritual calling by discovering, developing and utilizing our spiritual gifts.

 

We Value Unity
God commands a blessing when the church, the body of Christ, acts with selfless and intentional teamwork. Only when many diverse individuals work together can we accomplish our mission.

 

We Value Communication
It is important to have open, intentional, reciprocal flow of communication and feedback so that the church at large is aware of major decisions, events, and necessary information.

DOCTRINAL STATEMENT 

1. The Authority of the Bible 

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament have been given by the inspiration of God,  the Holy Spirit, and therefore serve as the authoritative guide for Christian understanding,  life and ministry. Psalm 19:7, Proverbs 30:5, Matthew 4:4 and II Timothy 3:16

2. God is Trinity

There is but one true God, the supreme, sovereign Being of the Universe and is revealed  in Scripture as One divine Being existing in three persons; God the Father, God the Son,  and God the Holy Spirit. Genesis 1:26, 27, Isaiah 48:16, Matthew 3: 16, 17, Matthew  28:19, I Corinthians 12: 4-6, II Corinthians 13:14, I John 5:7. 

3. The Deity and Perfect Humanity of Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is the preexistent son of God and is fully God and fully man; (The hypostatic  union) the only Savior for the sins of the world. He was the Word made flesh;  supernaturally conceived by the Holy Spirit; born of the Virgin Mary; and was perfect in  nature, teaching, and obedience. Matthew 6:16, Matthew 22:42-45, Luke 1:35, Luke  1:47, John 1:1, 14, John 10:30, John 14:6, 7, Hebrews 7:26.

4. The Deity of the Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is ascribed with the attributes of God, is equated with God and does the  work that only God does. John 14:26, John 15:26, Acts 5:3-5, Romans 5:5

5. Human State of Depravity

Man was created in the image and likeness of God. Man willfully disobeyed God  incurring spiritual and physical death. Each human is a sinner by nature and is in need of  divine salvation. Genesis 1:26, 27, Genesis 2:17, Psalm 58:3, Ecclesiastes 7:20, Isaiah  64:6, Romans 3:10, Romans 3:23, Romans 5:12, Ephesians 2:1

6. Atonement by the Substitutionary Death and Resurrection of Jesus  Christ

Christ’s substitutionary death on the cross by the shedding of His blood in His vicarious  sacrifice for sin shows mercy to sinners and supplies Christians with the life of God. His  resurrection from the dead was witnessed by over 500 people before His ascended into  heaven where He is seated at the right hand of God the Father. Matthew 26:28, John  1:29, Acts 20:28, Romans 3:25, 26, Romans 5:9, I Corinthians 15: 1-8, Hebrews 9:22, I 

Peter 1:19, Revelation 13:8 

7. Salvation by Grace through Faith 

Atonement by the literal blood and death of Jesus Christ provided an opportunity for all  men to be saved by believing the Gospel. Salvation has been provided freely to all who  believe as a result of who God is, and what Christ has done – not who we are or what we  

have done. Genesis 15:6, John 3:14-18, Acts 4:12, Acts 8:37, Acts 16:30, 31, Romans  10:13, Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8, 9.

8. Christ is Building His Church

The church which is the Body and future Bride of Christ is dedicated to the worship and  service of God, as well as the ordinance of baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Acts 11:26,  Romans 12:4-5, I Corinthians 12:27.

9. The Existence of Satan, Elect and Fallen Angels

Lucifer created perfect in wisdom and beauty as a cherubim rebelled and exalted himself  above God, and therefore was judged by God, and drew 1/3 of the angels with him and  who are now demons. Psalm 148:2, 5, Ezekiel 14:12-17, Isaiah 14:12-14, Matthew 6:18  Mark 8:38, Luke 10:18, I Corinthians 4:9, II Corinthians 2:11, Ephesians 1:22, 23,  Ephesians 3:10, Ephesians 5:23b, I Peter 1:12

10. The Resurrection/Eternal Rewards of the Just and Eternal  Punishment of the Unjust

Christ will return to rapture the church. The timing is uncertain. There will be a period of  time called the Great Tribulation, Matt 24:21, which is different from the general  tribulation all men endure. Following the Great Tribulation, Christ will come again to the  earth and establish his kingdom for 1000 years. The Great White Throne Judgment of the  unsaved, coupled with Satan being cast into the lake of fire, will allow Christ to establish  a New Heaven and a New Earth. John 5:24, Romans 11:32, Romans 14:10, I Corinthians  15:51, I Thessalonians 4:16, 17, I Thessalonians 5:9, Ephesians 2:1-6, Revelation  20:4-5, Revelation 20: 2-7, Revelation 20:11-15, Revelation 21: 1-3.
