We imagine a church where we meet people right where they are and help lead them to where God wants them to be – a fully transformed life.
We exist so that more people experience transforming relationships through Jesus Christ.
This is the driving force around our church. Everything we do and say will always come back to help more people experience transforming relationships, both with God and with each other. Wherever you are in life, you matter to us. Whatever you bring to the table, you matter to God, and God has a purpose for you.
We believe following Jesus is a series of next steps, and we want to help you become who God created you to be. Everyone has the opportunity to develop a meaningful relationship with Christ.
We believe the church is not a building, but rather a community of Jesus’ followers, learning each day how to become more like Christ. We have the privilege of making the love of God known to a hurting world. We believe we are always better together.
We LOVE DIFFERENTLY
We’re a community of people who love all through our words, our actions, and our attitudes.
In essential beliefs we have unity
“We are all one body, we have the same Spirit, and we have all been called to the same glorious future. There is only one Lord, one faith, one baptism, and there is only one God and Father, who is over us all and in us all and living through us all.” Ephesians 4:4-6 (NLT)
In non-essential beliefs we have liberty
In all of our beliefs we are to show love
“If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I knew all the mysteries of the future and knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would I be? And if I had the gift of faith so that I could speak to a mountain and make it move, without love I would be no good to anybody. If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would be of no value whatsoever.” 1st Corinthians 13:2-3 (NLT).
About Jesus Christ
As the second person of the Trinity, Jesus is co-existent and is equal to God the Father, and has all the characteristics mentioned above. He is not a created person. His blood is the atonement, or the satisfaction for our sins. He died, was resurrected and now sits on the right hand of the Father making intercession for us (Hebrew 10:12). The Lord Jesus Christ was born of a virgin (Matthew 1:23), lived a holy and pure life and fulfilled the will of the Father (John 19:30).
About the Holy Spirit
As the third person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is co-existent and is equal to God the Father, and God the Son. He also has all the characteristics of God, and He is not a created person. It is the Holy Spirit who led the writing of all books of the Bible. The Holy Spirit speaks (Rev. 2:7). The Holy Spirit reveals God (Is. 40:13-14). The Holy Spirit convicts the sinner of sin, righteousness, and judgment (John 16:7-9). The Holy Spirit empowers (Romans 8:2), guides (Romans 8:14), and anoints (1 John 2:27).
Man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:27) and for fellowship with God. Man disobeyed God and committed sin. Man’s sin leads to death. God created all men, but not all men are the children of God. The unsaved are the children of the devil (John 8:44). The only way to have eternal life is to call upon the name of Jesus Christ (Romans 10:13) and accept the free gift of salvation or pardon from God.
Salvation is a gift from God to all people. Because Jesus Christ lived, died on the cross for our sins, and was resurrected from the dead, we also can be resurrected to a life with God now and forever. This gift is available to all who choose to put their trust in Jesus, admitting they have sinned, believing and confessing that Jesus was crucified on the cross and raised from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4), and by inviting Jesus to be their Lord and Savior. Jesus is the only way to God (John 14:6). There is no other way of salvation (Acts 4:12). When one chooses this path, they enjoy an abundant and eternal life that begins the moment they believe.
