What We Believe

"What comes into our minds when we think about God is the most important thing about us." - A.W. Tozer

There are a lot of things that people have been divided over, but our desire is to be known by what unites us. We do not use extra-biblical creeds to decide who’s in and who’s out. The essentials of our faith are what we stand on. In secondary issues, we will practice love. We are not the first Christians, nor are we the only Christians. We want to simply be known for following Christ.

We are a non-denominational church which means we are led by local elders and its staff.


God is one being in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. He is the source of all creation (Gen. 1:1; John 1:1-2), which He sustains (Col. 1:17) and is in the process of redeeming (Rom. 8:19-22). God the Father loves us and desires that we have fellowship with Him as His children (I John 1:3).


Jesus of Nazareth is the incarnation of God the Son. He is the Word become flesh (John 1:14), and He now holds all authority in heaven and on earth (Matt. 28:18). He is Savior and Lord. He made human salvation possible through His life, death on the cross, and resurrection. He ascended into heaven, where He is now our high priest and advocate. He is head of the Church.


The Holy Spirit works actively in the world, seeking to glorify Jesus. The Holy Spirit convicts people of sin, righteousness, and judgment to come (John 16:5-11). The Holy Spirit indwells believers individually and corporately in the Church. The Holy Spirit develops within the Christian a pure heart, which results in Christ-like character expressed in private and public conduct and action.


The Old and New Testament Scriptures, are the uniquely inspired Word of God (2 Tim. 3:14-17; 2 Peter 1:16-21). The Bible is the rule of faith and practice for Christians. We affirm that Scripture is the authoritative revelation from God by which we know God’s will and Christ’s authority. We seek to assert what the Scriptures clearly assert and allow freedom in other cases. We seek to understand divine intent, through authorial intent, and we seek to apply its teaching to the contemporary church and culture


The Church is the body of Christ on earth, the community of believers throughout the world. Upon surrender to Christ, a person is adopted into the Church. In addition, the priesthood of all believers means each Christian is called to be a serving minister (1 Peter 2:9-10). The Church’s mission is the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20).


Human beings were created by God to walk in fellowship with Him. However, all (except Jesus) have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Rom. 3:23) and must rely on God’s grace and forgiveness. Every human from the moment of life is in the image of God (imago dei), a person to be nurtured, protected, and developed.


Salvation is by God alone through Jesus Christ alone. It is a free gift and cannot be earned. The salvation process includes faith, repentance, confession, and baptism. It is an ongoing work of God that begins with justification and continues through sanctification and glorification. By accepting and surrendering to Christ we are saved, are being saved, and will be saved. (Acts 2:38, 8:12, 10:47-48; Rom.10:9, etc.).
