What We Value
We value relationship with God and with others, because our missions is "Love Lived Out."
We value dependency on the Holy Spirit through prayer and fasting and the move of the Holy Spirit in our worship, meeting together, decision making, and in our daily lives.
We value reaching all people and helping to meet their needs by sharing our hope in Christ and giving our time, talent, and treasure in missions, benevolence, and community events.
We value empowering the body of Christ (the church) for service.
We value relationships that embrace diversity, encourage vulnerability, and foster a sense of unity and family by bearing one another's burdens and praying for one another.
We value learning and growth through challenging Bible-based teaching from the pulpit, in classes, and in small groups that is relevant and accessible for every age.
What We Believe
The Bible is the inspired and only infallible and authoritative written word of God (2 Timothy 3:16). There is one God, eternally existent in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19).
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, in His personal future return to this earth in power and glory to rule a thousand years (John 1:1)
In the blessed hope-the rapture of the Church at Christ's coming (Titus 2:13). The only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ (John 14:6).
Regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation (Titus 3:5). In water baptism by immersion (Matthew 28:19).
The redemptive work of Christ on the cross provides healing of the human body in answer to believing prayer (1 Peter 2:24). The baptism in the Holy Spirit, according to Acts 2:4, is given to believers who ask for it.
In the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life (Galatians 5:16-25). In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation (Revelation 20:11-15).
