To see lives changed by Jesus
Living proof of a loving God to a watching world
Worship All of me for all of Him
By doing this we admit there is someone greater than us. We acknowledge God is our Lord and King. We worship because it places Him in the right place in our lives and ultimately changes ours.
Evangelism Reaching people far from God
People matter to God so they should matter to us. Going across seas and across streets are important because we believe people need to be rescued. We’ll do anything short of sin to reach people far from God.
Serving Changed people serve people
We serve people so served people become changed people. Serving is essential to who we are as believers. Serving is vital to life.
Generosity Giving away what God has given us
It’s not ours to begin with. We want to live generously to bless our church, our city and our world.
Community People need people
Living life, side by side, allows for meaningful relationships to evolve and grow. Don’t live life alone.
Discipleship Growing people change
We’re committed to training and guiding people in Christ. Learning never ends.
Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, Creator and the Lord of the universe, eternally existing in three person: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Father: John 6:27; Son: John 1:1, 18; Titus 2:12-13; Holy Spirit: Acts 5:3-4).
We believe in the unity of the Trinity. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Isaiah 48:16, Matthew 28:19, 1 Timothy 2:5)
We believe the Bible is God’s authoritative, inspired word and without error in all its teachings (any command or original manuscripts). It is our final authority. (2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21, Matthew 4:4,7,10, Romans 1:16-17, Colossians 1:10, 1 Peter 2:2, 2 Peter 3:18)
Sin and redemption
We believe we’re all born separated from God and cannot be united with Him despite our best efforts at being good enough. We can only become united with God by admitting we are spiritually lost, have sinned and need His forgiveness and restoration. When we make these confessions we are brought into a right relationship with God when we accept the word of His Son Jesus. (John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Romans 3:23, 6:23, Ephesians 2:8-9, Titus 3:5-7)
Jesus Christ is the Head of the church, which is made up of all believers everywhere in the world. The church is not a building but a group of baptized believers who are organized to do God’s will. Its calling is to worship God and make Him known to the world in word and deed. (Matthew 16:18, 28;18-20, Acts 8:36-39, 10:43-48, 1 Corinthians 1:2, Ephesians 1:20-23, 5:23-33)
We believe Jesus Christ is eternal (Micah 5:2, John 1:1,14, 17:5; Revelation 1:8), that He is God’s son and was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the Virgin Mary (Matthew 1:25; Luke 1:26-28). We believe He lived a sinless life and died a substitutionary atoning death on the cross for our sins (Isaiah 53;10; Romans 3:21-26; Ephesians 1:7; 1 John 2:1-2). We believe Christ rose in bodily form from the dead and ascended to Heaven (Acts 1:9-10; 1 Corinthians 15:4; Ephesians 1:20). We believe Jesus was fully God and fully man and is the only mediator between God and man. (John 1:1,18, Titus 2:13, Hebrews 13:8, 1 Timothy 2:5, Luke 2:52, John 4:6, 19:28, Romans 8:34, Hebrews 7:25, 9:24, 1 Timothy 2:5, 1 John 2:1-2)
The New Birth
Accepting the work of Jesus on our behalf results in a spiritual rebirth. This birth leads to spiritual maturity and transformation in individuals and the church. Believers are called to live in God’s power and to experience a life of dynamic change, becoming more like Christ in character each day. (John 16:8-11, Romans 8:16, 1 Corinthians 6:19, 1 Corinthians 12:12-14, Ephesians 1:13-14, Ephesians 4:30, 2 Thessalonians 2:13, 1 Peter 1:2)
The Return of Christ
We believe Jesus Christ will personally and visibly return in glory to raise the dead and bring salvation and judgement to completion. God will fully manifest His kingdom when He establishes a new heaven and earth, in which He will be glorified forever. The new kingdom will be without evil, suffering and death. (Zechariah 14:1-9, Matthew 25:31-46, Acts 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18, Revelation 19:11-21, Revelation 20)
