We exist to glorify God through Gospel-centered biblical teaching,
The Vision Drives Our Mission:
We desire to be a growing, multi-generational covenant community committed to the work of making Christ-centered disciples.
- Growing -- because we believe that healthy churches are growing churches
- Multi-generational -- because healthy churches have and reach people of all ages, not just one demographic
- Covenant community -- because we are a community of believers joined together by Christ and by a covenant toward each other
- Christ-centered -- because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is central to all we do
- Disciple-making -- because Jesus's final command to his disciples was to go and make disciples of the nations
What We Believe -- Our Declaration of Faith and Official Teaching Position
We believe the scriptures of both Old and New Testaments to have been verbally inspired by God, to be without error in the original writings and to be supreme and final authority in faith and life.
We believe in one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
GOD THE FATHER is perfect in holiness, infinite in wisdom, and measureless in power. We rejoice that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men, that He hears and answers prayer, and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ.
GOD THE SON was begotten of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin and is true God and man. He died a substitutionary death on the cross for our sins, according to the scriptures. All who receive Him are justified on the grounds of His shed blood. We believe in His bodily resurrection for His people, His lordship, and His personal, visible, imminent, premillennial return to the world according to His promise.
GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT convicts the world of sins, of righteousness, and of judgment. His works in the believer include (but are not limited to): salvation, baptism into the body of Christ, indwelling, sealing eternally, progressive sanctification, gifting, filling, teaching, enabling and glorifying.
We believe that man was created in the image of God and was originally without sin. The author of sin, Satan, is a person, a fallen angel, and the cause of the fall. Because of the sin of Adam, all men are now sinners both by nature and choice. Man is unable to remedy his own lost condition.
Salvation is the free gift of God, entirely apart from works, received upon personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. All who receive by faith the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God. All those who are truly children of God are eternally secure, kept by the power of God, and can never lose their salvation.
We believe that the church is the body of Christ which is made up of all born-again everywhere. The local church is the visible expression of that body, organized of baptized believers voluntarily associated together for the worship of God, the fellowship of believers, the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ throughout the world, and the observances of the biblical ordinances which are Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper. We believe that the scriptural mode of baptism is by immersion. The local church is independent and autonomous and is free from all outside ecclesiastical or political interference. We believe that the individual members of this body and these local assemblies are priests before God, having the privilege and responsibility of offering prayer and spiritual sacrifices to Him.
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the non-believer and the believer. The unbeliever will be eternally punished in the lake of fire, the believer will enjoy the wonders of God’s presence forever.
