We are real people infused with dynamic faith, committed to a common vision, joined together in the covenant love of our Creator.
WE USED TO BE...
We used to be completely broken but are now grateful for undeserved redemption, astonished by amazing Grace, healed by forgiveness and humbled by the divine invitation to share the Gospel of Christ.
We serve because He served first. Faith without works is dead. The love of God and the Holy Spirit empower believers to minister well to the least of these.
// OUR BELIEFS //
God exists as one entity in three persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Each member of the Trinity serves an individually different function and purpose, yet they each possess the equal power and authority. God has existed in relationship with Himself for all eternity.
Genesis 1:26; Isaiah 61:1; Matthew 28:19; Luke 1:35; John 5:21-23, 14:10, 16; Romans 8:9-11; 1 Corinthians 8:6; 2 Corinthians 13:14; Hebrews 1:8-10; James 2:19
God is love. He is awesome, all powerful, all knowing, with us everywhere we turn, never changing, never forsaking, holy, and perfect. God is great. He is our Father in Heaven, always watching over us with compassion.
Numbers 23:19; Leviticus 11:44-45; Psalm 11:4-6; John 3:16; Acts 17:28
Jesus Christ. Completely human, yet completely God. Jesus is the only way and plan for people to be brought back into a right relationship with God. He was born of a virgin birth, lived a perfect life, and was the perfect sacrifice for our sins. He was buried, resurrected, and lives today. Isaiah 7:14; Matthew 1:18-23, 3:17, 28:5-6; Luke 22:70; John 1:1; Acts 1:9; Romans 1:3-4, 8:1-3, 10:4; 1 Corinthians 8:6; Philippians 2:5-11; 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 3:16
THE HOLY SPIRIT
The Holy Spirit guides us in our everyday walk with God. He exalts God and the truth. He convicts people of their sin, comforts us and has sanctifying power to enable each of us to overcome our obstacles to become more like Christ through His holiness. The Holy Spirit is promised to all believers, subsequent to salvation, as the entrance into a Spirit-filled life.
Genesis 1:2; Isaiah 61:1-3; Joel 2:28-32; Mark 1:10; Luke 1:35, 11:13; John 15:26, 16:7-14; Acts 1:8, 2:1-4, 13:2; 1 Corinthians 3:16, 14:14-15; Galatians 5:22-23; Ephesians 1:13-14; 1 Thessalonians 4:3 ; 2 Peter 1:21, 3:18 ; Revelation 22:17
The Bible is God's Holy word to all people. Written by human authors under the divine inspiration of the Holy Spirit. It is God's very word, therefore it is truth, without any error and relevant to our lives
Deutoronomy 4:1-2; Isaiah 40:8; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 1 Peter 1:25; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Peter 3:16; Revelation 22:18-19
Man was created by God, in the image of God. Man was created to have fellowship with God but became separated from God through disobedience; Sin. Man cannot get back to a right relationship with God except through the forgiveness and salvation through Jesus Christ.
Genesis 1:26-30, 2:7, 18-22; Isaiah 6:5; Jeremiah 17:5; Acts 17:26-31; Romans 1:19-32; 1 Corinthians 1:21-31, 15:19; Ephesians 2; Colossians 1:21-23
Salvation is God’s free gift to all mankind but we must accept it (John 1:12-13). We can never be saved by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness through the shedding of Jesus’ blood can anyone be saved from sin’s penalty (Romans 3:24-26, 5:1, 6:23, Galatians 2:16, Ephesians 2:4-10). When this happens a person is born again, forgiven of sins, set free from the power of sin (Romans 6:16-22).
We believe water baptism is an act of faith and obedience to the commands of Christ. Baptism declares that you are a follower of Jesus Christ. It is a public confession of your faith in, and commitment to, Jesus Christ. It is the next step after salvation through repentance and faith and is an important foundation for the Christian life. outward testimony to an inward work already accomplished in the heart of the believer.
Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38-41
People were created to exist forever. We will either exist eternally separated from God by sin, or eternally with God through forgiveness and salvation. To be eternally separated from God is hell. To be eternally in union with Him is eternal life. Heaven and hell are real places for eternal existence
Matthew 25:31-46, John 3:16, Romans 6:23, 2 Corinthians 5:1-8, 1 John 5:11-12, Revelation 20:15
The Church is made up of God's children, the believers. It is a community of saved believers in Christ. It fulfills Gods commandments and teachings to spread the Gospel of Christ to the world.
Matthew 16:18-19, 18:15-20 ; Acts 2:41-47, 14:23, 16:5, 20:28 ; 1 Corinthians 7:17, 9:13-14, 12 Ephesians1:22-23, 2:19-22 ; Colossians 1:18, 3:15 ; 1 Timothy 4:14 ; 1 Peter 5:1-4; Revelation 21:2-3
