Worshiping God is our highest priority and when we come together we value Spirit-enabled and Spirit-empowered worship that is purposed to minister to and touch the heart of God and that makes space for an intimate, authentic, life changing encounter with the Father.
The Word of God
We have a high value for the Word of God. Expect a clear message from the Word of God taught in a practical, inspiring, applicable way that makes sense today. We aim to hear and obey God’s word and become “doers of the Word” and for the word to become the foundation for all areas of our lives and ministries.
We value being Spirit-led and purpose to seek, expectantly wait upon, and to be actively responsive to the Holy Spirit’s leading in our personal lives and our corporate gatherings. And just as Jesus was sent by the Father, led and empowered by the Holy Spirit to speak the words of and do the supernatural works of the Kingdom, even so the Father is sending us to speak the words of Jesus and do the same works of Jesus.
Grace and Mercy
We believe that grace and mercy is fundamental to all that God does in salvation. We purpose to proclaim, extend and demonstrate the Father’s favor of grace and mercy to each other and to our broken world.
Simplicity, Honesty, and Genuineness
We value an atmosphere of ease and to act, speak and dress in ways, which people can respond positively. We want people to be free and comfortable to be themselves. We strive to create a climate that is relaxed and comfortable, and desire to be real and authentic, steering away from hypocrisy and phoniness; believing our gatherings are a place to genuinely experience and connect with God the Father’s love.
We value discipleship and are committed to making disciples of Jesus and believe that Jesus is committed to, and has power to, transform us and make us more like Himself. We aim to provide training for all aspects of responsible Christian life and ministry.
Everyone Gets To Play.
God, the Father, is always at work all around us and invites every believer to join Him in what He is doing. He “gifts” them and gives them roles or tasks and the grace to join Him in accomplishing His purposes. We purpose to provide an environment of unconditional love, acceptance and mercy, where risk taking in ministry is encouraged and regularly modeled.
We believe there is one living and true God, eternally existing in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, equal in power and glory; that this triune God created all, upholds all, and governs all
We believe that all the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, fully inspired and without error in the original manuscripts, and that they are the infallible rule of faith and practice
We believe in God, the Father, an infinite, personal Spirit, perfect in holiness, wisdom, power, and love; that He concerns Himself mercifully in the affairs of men; that He hears and answers prayer; and that He saves from sin and death all who come to Him through Jesus Christ
We believe in Jesus Christ, God’s only begotten Son, conceived by the Holy Spirit. We believe in His virgin birth, fully human and fully God, sinless life, miracles, and teachings; His substitutionary atoning death; bodily resurrection; ascension into heaven; perpetual intercession for His people; and personal, visible return to earth. We believe that in His first coming Jesus inaugurated the fulfillment of the Kingdom of God
We believe in the Holy Spirit, who came forth from the Father and Son to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment and to regenerate, sanctify, and empower for ministry all who believe in Christ. We believe the Holy Spirit indwells every believer in Jesus Christ and that He is an abiding Helper, Teacher, and Guide. We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit and in the exercise of all biblical gifts of the Spirit.
We believe all people are by nature separated from God and responsible for their own sin, but that through regeneration by the Holy Spirit repentance, salvation, redemption, and forgiveness can be obtained by all by the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We believe in the universal Church, in the living spiritual body, of which Christ is the head and all regenerated persons are members;
We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ committed two ordinances to the church: baptism; and the Lord’s Supper. We believe in water baptism and communion open to all believers.
We believe in the personal, visible appearing of Christ to earth and the consummation of His Kingdom; in the bodily resurrection of the dead, of the believer to everlasting blessedness and joy with the Lord, of the unbeliever to judgment and everlasting, conscious punishment.
