About Our Church

What We Believe

The center of who and what we are is the Person and Work of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We have been redeemed through Christ from sin—the spiritual brokenness that causes us to resist God’s ways and fall short of His glory. We hold high the Gospel of Jesus Christ as the unifying center around which everything else is built and from which all ministry flows.

Our Vision

Glorify God by living Christ-centered lives and building a Christ-centered community.
Choose to trust Him in every circumstance and allowing Him to transform us to become more and more like Jesus.

Our Belief

The Scriptures: the Bible is written by men under God’s divine revelation. It is the final authority informing our beliefs and practices.

God

He is the creator and sustainer of the universe and exists in three persons: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (the trinity: Mathew 28:19)

Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God who died for our sins and became the world’s Savior. He rose the third day, ascended into heaven, and one day will return to reign as king. (John 1:1-5, Colossians 1:19-20, Mathew 24:42)

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity. His role is to inspire Scripture, to convict people of sin, and to help believers to live the life God has called them to. (John 16:7-15)

Church

The church is a local community of baptized believers who practice baptism by immersion (Acts 2:38), and communion (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)
