Our purpose statement: "To be a Christ-centered community, reaching out every day to make more and better disciples."



What we value




  • We reach out in relevant ways to people far from God
    in our local and global communities
    to become a bridge to Jesus.


  • Because we are all in process,
    we foster a healthy "come as you are" culture,
    while at the same time,
    urging one another on to live in life changing
    relationship with God.



  • We encourage one another to
    discover our God given gifts and passions
    and then put them to use.


  • We inspire marriages and families
    to model
    Christ-like love
    and equip
    parents to fulfill their primary role
    of nurturing their children
    and growing their relationship in Christ.




  • We responsibly use whatever God gives,
    in order to effectively accomplish
    whatever God assigns. 



  • We take a passionate approach to teaching,

    learning and practically applying
    God's Word in every area. 


What we believe


  •  




    We believe that the Bible is the inspired Word of God.
    2 Timothy 3:16-17  |   2 Peter 1:19-21




  • We
    believe in one God,
    eternally existent in three persons:
    Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

    Genesis 1:26   |   Matthew 3:16-17, 28:19




  • We believe that people are created in the
    image of God, but as a result of sin
    are lost and powerless
    to save ourselves.

    Genesis 1:26-27   |   Romans 3:23, 5:12-21



  • We believe that the only hope for people is to believe in Jesus Christ,
    the virgin-born Son of God, who died to take upon Himself
    the punishment for the sin of mankind. We believe further
    in the bodily resurrection of Jesus from the dead.
    Through receiving Jesus as Lord, we are made spiritually alive.
    This begins a relationship with the living Savior.

    John 1:12, 3:3-7, 5:24   |   Ephesians 2:8-10   |   Hebrews 9:11-28




  • We believe in the bodily resurrection of the saved and the lost,
    the eternal conscious existence of all people either in heaven or hell,
    and in divine judgements, rewards and punishments.
    We believe, as well, that Jesus Christ will return
    in person to earth in power and glory.

    John 5:29  |   2 Corinthians 5:6-10  |   2 John 8



  • We believe that the Holy Spirit indwells
    those who have received Christ for the purpose of
    enabling them to live righteous and godly lives.
    Both the gifts and fruits of the Spirit
    are a continuing part of God's plan for His Church.
    God's will is for each believer to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
    Galatians 3:2; 5:22   |   1 Corinthians 12:4-11   |   Ephesians 4:7-12; 5:18



  • We believe that the Church is the body of Christ
    and is composed of all those who, through belief in Christ,
    have been spiritually regenerated by the indwelling Holy Spirit.
    The mission of the Church is worldwide evangelism on the one hand,
    and the nurture and discipling of Christians on the other.
    We believe in the ordinances of baptism and the Lord's Supper.
    Matthew 26:26-30; 28:18-20   |   Mark 16:15   |   Romans 6:3-4


  • We believe God ordained marriage and the family, and that
    biblical marriage is a sacred covenant relationship
    between one man and one woman,
    symbolizing the union of Christ and His Church.
    Genesis 2:18-25   |   Matthew 19:4-6   |   Ephesians 5:22-25

    We believe God has commanded that all sexual activity
    remain between a woman and a man within the confines of their marriage.

    Matthew 19:4-6   |   Romans 1:26-29; 7:2   |   1 Thessalonians 4:1-8   |   Hebrews 13:4
