OUR VISION IS SUMMED UP IN 4 WORDS
We are passionate about reaching out beyond the four walls of the church in order to introduce people to Christ. Multiple times a week with outreaches, relevant services, and a strong evangelical message, we invite people to discover the hope, love, and transformation that comes out of a relationship with Him.
Once saved, we believe it’s imperative to stay connected to the body of Christ, the church. Once a month we run connect groups that gather people to do life together, and build community inside the church.
Leaders take us where we don’t want to go, but we’ll always thank them later. We encourage every member to be discipled so they grow and develop, and in turn, disciple others. We are passionate about developing kingdom leaders that can rise up and take the lead in the church, the marketplace, and in families and communities.
God has a plan and purpose for all people. He has given us all gifts to make a difference in this world by serving Him and each other. We provide opportunities for every member of our church to step into the plans and purposes of God by being involved and being an influencer!
Faith is everything
WHAT WE BELIEVE
There is one God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ the Son of God; we believe in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His victorious and atoning death, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, His constant intercession, and in His imminent return.
In the person and work of the Holy Spirit, with His fruits and gifts available in the Church; The Bible is the living word of God. It is infallible, authoritative, everlasting, and is the foundation of all Christian doctrine
In the existence of an evil spiritual being known as the devil
In the spiritually lost condition of all people and the essential need for the new birth by faith in Jesus Christ.
In the baptism of the Holy Spirit as a gift available to believers subsequent to the new birth, with normal initial evidence of speaking in other tongues.
In the 3 sacraments of the Lords Supper and baptism by full immersion in water for all believers and in the sacrament of marriage between 1 Man and 1 Women.
In the resurrection of both the saved and the lost, the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting separation from God.
In the church being the body of Christ, and each member being an active part of a local church, fulfilling the Great Commission.
PRAYER FOR COVID-19
“I am making all things new” (Rev 21:5)
Dear colleagues and friends, dear brothers and sisters. We are facing difficult times. The Coronavirus-19 pandemic is a tremendous challenge for the Church, for all people worldwide, and for our common home. Yet the crisis is an opportunity to start anew. This is an urgent and complex calamity that requires new solutions: “new wine, new skins” (Mk 2:22), new ways of living, new ways of working, new models of development. In Easter, the risen Christ makes “all things new” (Rev 21:5), and He sustains us in our vulnerability, guides us through darkness, and reconciles us with the source of life.
