Our Mission
Everything we do is so that people far from God experience new life in Jesus. That means we do whatever it takes to rescue lost people.

Our
Beliefs

The Bible

We believe the Scriptures are inspired by God and declare His design and plan for mankind. God’s Word is true, authoritative, and sufficient.

God

We believe there is only One True God—revealed in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, commonly known together as the Trinity.

Jesus Christ

We believe in the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ. As God’s Son, Jesus was both human and divine.

Jesus Christ died as the sacrificial substitute to pay the penalty for sin. And He physically rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and will one day physically return.

Fall of Man

We believe that though originally good, man willingly fell to sin—ushering evil and death, both physical and spiritual, into the world.

THE Salvation OF MAN

Man’s only hope of redemption is through faith in Jesus Christ the Son of God. Salvation is received through repentance from sin toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus – including His death, resurrection, and saving power. Being justified by grace through faith, we become co-heirs with Christ, receiving God’s full acceptance and the gift of eternal life.

Sanctification

We believe sanctification initially occurs at the point of salvation. Sanctification is not only a declaration that a believer is holy in God’s sight but also a progressive, lifelong process of separating from evil as believers continually draw closer to God and become more Christlike.

The Return Of Christ

We believe that Jesus is coming again for His Church in the future, at a date and time unknown to mankind. After the return of Christ, there will be final judgment and punishment of sin for those whose names are not written in the Book of Life. They will be condemned to hell for eternity. Those in Christ will enjoy eternal life with the Lord in Heaven. “But in keeping with his promise, we are looking forward to a new heaven and a new earth, where righteousness dwells.” – 2 Peter 3:13

The Church

We believe the Church has a mission to seek and save all who are lost in sin. We believe the Church is the body of Christ and consists of the people who, throughout time, have accepted God’s offer of redemption through the sacrificial death of His Son, Jesus Christ.

The Holy Spirit

All believers receive the indwelling of the Holy Spirit when they are spiritually born again (John 20:22, Acts 2:38). Subsequently, Christians can experience the baptism with the Holy Spirit that Jesus promised His disciples which brings power for Christian living and service to the Lord. (Luke 24:49, Acts 8:12-17, Acts 10:44, Acts 11:14-16)

The Gifts of The Spirit

We believe all of the gifts of the Spirit as seen in scripture are in use today. These spiritual gifts are distributed according to God’s will and enable believers to experience God’s supernatural power today. The spiritual gifts equip the Body of Christ for ministry and we should seek them eagerly while realizing not all believers will experience every spiritual gift. Spiritual gifts should be used in a God-honoring and orderly way. (1 Cor 12, 1 Cor 14)

Healing

We believe that God still divinely heals those who are sick according to His purpose and plan. We should ask for healing and simultaneously trust God’s sovereign plan.

ALL PEOPLE

We believe that people of every race, age, and background are made in God’s image and are meant to be loved and presented with God’s good news.

MARRIAGE

We believe the Bible clearly describes God’s design for marriage. God intends marriage to be a lasting & committed relationship between one man and one woman. This bond is also a reflection of the lasting, committed relationship between Jesus and His Church.

SEXUALITY

Sexuality is also a part of God’s design for humanity and is intended to be enjoyed only within the framework of biblical marriage, between one natural-born man and one natural-born woman. Sex outside of biblical marriage is sin. We believe gender is fixed based on biology and not fluid based on feelings.

Our Values

Everything for the glory of Jesus Christ “who came from the father, full of grace and truth”
John 1:14
